Legendary funnyman Bob Hope plays a baby photographer who gets mixed up with gangsters in this bubbly slapstick comedy-drama. Ronnie Jackson (Hope) wants nothing more than to step into the gumshoes of office mate Sam McCloud (film noir veteran Alan Ladd) a private investigator who runs his own detective agency. Jackson gets his big break when a mysterious femme fatale (Dorothy Lamour) strolls into his office and mistaking him for McCloud asks for help with her uncle's kidnapping. Jackson plays along with the detective role but is soon in way over his head as he becomes... embroiled in a dangerous (and comic!) mystery. This spoof of the hardboiled detective genre also features horror legends Peter Lorre and Lon Chaney as Hope's villainous foils. [show more]

Ronnie Jackson (Bob Hope) is a baby photographer who aspires to the life of the detective working in the office next door. Following a case of mistaken identity he gets the chance for some real sleuthing, charged with finding the missing Baron Montay. Immediately out of his depth, the wise-cracking Ronnie tries to track down the Baron in a gloomy mansion with the Baroness (Dorothy Lamour) at his side, and soon the two are in all sorts of trouble.
