Movie Info

Ronnie Jackson (Bob Hope) is a lowly baby photographer who secretly fantasizes about being a private detective. When a lovely baroness (Dorothy Lamour) actually mistakes him for one and asks him to help locate her missing husband, Baron Montay (Frank Puglia), Ronnie finds himself agreeing. Several days later he is on death row whiling away the hours until his execution by recounting to a group of reporters the bizarre tale of how he ended up there.

    Bob Hope is the steely nerved gumshoe and Dorothy Lamour the sultry femme fatale in this late 1940's sendup of film noir whose major joke is that Hope is anything but steely nerved. Peter Lorre is main murderous henchman while Lon Chaney goofs his cliche dumb strongman persona. There's some good laffs here, and Alan Ladd and Der Bingle put in minor cameo flourishs.

    Bob Hope gets unintentionally involved in a mystery when he pretends to be a detective, and the results are hilarious.
