Bob Hope in "My Favorite Brunette" - Dorothy Lamour, Peter Lorre, & Lon Chaney

6.81 h 27 min194713+
Ronnie Jackson (Bob Hope) is a baby photographer who fantasizes being a private eye. A baroness (Dorothy Lamour) actually mistakes him for one and asks for help locating her missing husband. This is followed by sinister doings in a gloomy mansion & sanatorium, with Peter Lorre & Lon Chaney Jr. Hope's character ends up framed for murder with every plot twist & parody of thriller cliches imaginable.

if you like Hope's never-ending manic jokes, you'll probably like this movie. i think i like his buddy movies better. someone to balance it all out. i didnt want to give it a 4, but i am pretty sure there was a point in my life i would have. so i am letting that era of my life score my current experience.
