My Favorite Spy (Special Edition)

Directed by Norman Z. McLeod

Release: 1951
Runtime: 93
Country: U.S.
Language: English

The cheeky charm of Bob Hope (My Favorite Blonde, My Favorite Brunette) meets the bombshell brilliance of Hedy Lamarr (Samson and Delilah, The Female Animal) in this sly spy farce! While on his way to Tangier to purchase a microfilm containing important war secrets, foreign spy Eric Augustine (Hope) is wounded by the authorities and hospitalized. Burlesque comedian Peanuts White (also Hope), a dead ringer for Augustine, is recruited by the government to take over Augustine’s mission. Peanuts is briefed in the role of the suave and romantic Augustine, dressed to look exactly like him and is thrust into the world of espionage and international intrigue! In Tangier, he meets—and falls for—the irresistible but dangerous Lily Dalbray (Lamarr), Augustine’s sweetheart, who’s now in cahoots with the mastermind of the spy ring (Francis L. Sullivan, The Mystery of Edwin Drood). Just like Hope’s previous “My Favorite” forays, My Favorite Spy parodies classic espionage genre pictures with panache! Directed by the great Norman Z. McLeod (Road to Rio, The Paleface) and featuring legendary Hollywood “bad guys” Mike Mazurki (Dark City) and Marc Lawrence (Cloak and Dagger).
