My Favorite Spy

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 33 min.

Plot Summary
Comedian Peanuts White (Bob Hope) is certainly not a spy -- he just happens to look like one. Nabbed by FBI agents at an airport, he's mistaken for Eric Augustine (also Hope), an actual international spy. Peanuts clears his name but is convinced to visit Africa and impersonate Eric in order to steal an important piece of microfilm. He meets up with Lily Dalbray (Hedy Lamarr), Eric's lovely girlfriend, but it turns out she is also on the hunt for the microfilm, further complicating the situation.
