Caught in the Draft ★★★ 1941

Hope's funniest role has him as a Hollywood star trying to evade the draft in WW II, but he ends up accidentally enlisting himself. Lamour plays the daughter of a colonel in the Army whom Hope plans to marry, thinking it will get him out of the service. Very funny military comedy and one of Hope's best. Based on a story by Harry Tugend. 82m/B VHS, DVD . Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Lynne Overman, Eddie Bracken, Clarence (C. William) Kolb, Paul Hurst, Ferike Boros, Irving Bacon; D: David Butler; W: Harry Tugend.
