My Favorite Blonde ★★★ 1942

Beautiful British spy Carroll convinces Hope to aid her in carrying out a secret mission. Lots of fun as Hope and his trained penguin, along with Carroll, embark on a cross-country chase to elude the Nazis. Hope's behavior is hilarious and the pacing of the film is excellent. Based on a story by Melvin Frank and Norman Panama. 78m/B VHS, DVD . Bob Hope, Madeleine Carroll, Gale Sondergaard, George Zucco, Lionel Royce, Walter Kingsford, Victor Varconi, Bing Crosby; D: Sidney Lanfield; W: Frank Butler, Don Hartman; C: William Mellor; M: David Buttolph.
