      This is a remake of a Bob Hope movie called, "The Paleface." It's a typical Don Knotts movie, so if you like Don Knotts type of humor, you'll love this movie. Knotts plays a dentist, that gets married to an undercover agent that needs a husband to help hide her identity, as she hunts down gun runners.
