I have always really liked this one. It seems to me better than the other two "My Favorite..." films Hope did. Short, but nothing missing. Done quite a while before that sort of snide side of Hope started to show itself noticeably, and interfere with all of his performances. Terrific cast, who all did a very good job. The huge, glaring negative of this film is the lousy quality of the copies that are commonly available. Has no one decided that this film is worth a restoration? I understand that this is one of those rare ones that is in the public domain, so it's hard to turn a buck on getting the print(s) back into worthwhile shape. Still, there has to be at least one of the many organizations that do restorations for preservation of an art form more than from a profit motive, that think this one is worth the time, effort and money.
like remakes.. well..
tang head for the memories. America of thee I sing but we did not learn a thing. all the bombs dropped in Vietnam. the sound of a crying mom. we should of cared about you.. so much. the self righteous indignation of the Woodstock generation. their bitter betrayal of multi generation. all the lessons of American history. why you all became a collective dumbass is a mystery. America.. you deserved so much. so tang head for the memories. this country should be hotsy totsy. instead we may be hip deep in neo Nazi. it seemed such a plan. now it might be all for the klu klux klan. America..this is insane. just when all is lost..real americans will step up to the plate ..no matter the cost. from a morning of December clear..for all who hold this country dear..have no fear..because ..America is still here. so thanks America.. for still having better.. even in the worst of times. now.. I got a date with a very tall French new Yorker named liberty. do not want to be late..some creepy old real estate fool with funny hair giving her the eye. the story was good. the lead was on point.
Good comedy....lousy print!!
I've seen many Bob Hope movies and considered this one pretty good with a great cast.....but what's with the dark, lousy print on TCM?? There must be a better copy available in this day of digital restoration, etc. At times I couldn't even see faces through the blacks. The contrast was quite drastic...hope this one will be improved!! Still worth the 87 minute investment.....
Without Bob Hope this would have been a much better movie. He was as funny as usual, which means not very.

Bob Hope at his best, and what a fantastic cast. I really enjoy watching this movie, I own a copy and I've must seen it a dozen times. Hope's comedic timing could not have been better, and when he referenced Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend (what a great drama that was) I lost it. Pure genius. If you like a comedy hard to find one better.
Why is the TCM film print so terrible?
This is a funny Bob Hope movie from when he was at his peak. Unfortunately, the quality of the print that was shown on TCM was so dark and inferior that it distracts from enjoying the film.
very good movie
