Starring Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Frank Puglia, Lon Chaney Jr., Peter Lorre

One-liners and wackiness abound in Bob Hope’s spoof on the hardboiled private detective genre that was so popular in the 40s. He plays a baby photographer mistaken for a detective by a beautiful baroness which leads to him getting in way over his head. Successful as both a comedy and a mystery thriller with fun cameos by Alan Ladd and Bing Crosby.
