My Favorite Blonde
Directed by Sidney Lanfield
Comedy legend Bob Hope (Nothing But the Truth) stars in this wonderful espionage comedy directed by Sidney Lanfield (The Lemon Drop Kid). It’s “all aboard” for intrigue, laughs and romance as Hope and Madeleine Carroll (The General Died at Dawn) contend with German spies during a daffy but dangerous cross-country chase. Bing Crosby makes a memorable cameo appearance in this free-wheeling comedy gem. Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by legendary cinematographer William C. Mellor (A Place in the Sun) and co-starring Gale Sondergaard (Road to Rio), My Favorite Blonde was the first of three “My Favorite” movies starring Hope, followed by My Favorite Brunette (1947) and My Favorite Spy (1951).
