    Synopsis


    Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number!
    Usually cited as the absolute nadir of Bob Hope's film career, Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! is by no means a classic, but it isn't nearly as bad as some of his other sixties efforts (take a look a Private Navy of Sgt. O'Farrell sometime). The plot is set in motion by movie sex bomb Elke Sommer, who flees from the set of her latest picture when she refuses to do yet another bathtub sequence. Sommer hides out in the home of real estate agent Hope, who is forced to keep the buxom starlet under wraps lest his wife Marjorie Lord misunderstand. Phyllis Diller plays Hope's maid, who conspires with her boss to keep Sommer out of sight. The plot lumbers forward to a wild climax wherein Hope, accused of Sommer's murder (she's still very much alive), embarks upon a slapstick car chase, chock full of Sennett-like sight gags. Though cheaply produced and perilously anachronistic, Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! is professionally assembled by director George Marshall, a Hope colleague from way back. The film turned a tidy profit, thanks largely to the popularity of Hope's costar Phyllis Diller. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      the disc: picture and sound quality are excellent for a 50 year old picture the movie: Bob Hope are Phyllis Diller are wonderful trading cracks in their scenes together, Bob Hope is Bob Hope as always, the supporting cast is also a lot of fun to watch the highly improbable finale could only work in the 1960"s, sit back and ENJOY vintage comedy with a pair of classic comedians \

      I loved this movie in the 60s and I still think it's hilarious. Phyllis Diller is absolutely great! I was so excited that it came out on bluray. I have watched it several times!

      Classic Bob Hope humor topped with Elke Summer and a dash of Phyllis Diller. Still funny today
