My Favorite Brunette (Paramount 1947, Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour)

My Favorite Brunette

My Favorite Brunette was another vehicle for Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour: he plays a baby photographer, she is a baroness looking for a missing husband. Along the way there are run-ins with a horde of international criminals led by Lorre, a quest for a hidden map, and two classic cameo appearances. One of 15 films Hope made with Lamour.

Clarence Muse, who appears uncredited as a death row inmate held a law degree and was a member of the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame.
