Film Review

This I assert is one of the most-imitated films and the funniest of all time. The producers for once let Bob Hope play a real person; one whose reactions in an extreme situation involving zombies, gangsters, death threats and the need for derring-do made his sensible fears seem believably. In fact, I suggest that the complex plot works quite well. delivering a realistic background to the comedic doings. The great George Marshall did a beautiful job keeping the action going, as he almost always did. Credit for the involving and hilarious story and screenplay are due to Walter DeLeon for the screenplay itself and Paul Dickey and Charles W. Goddard for the play from which it was adapted. The storyline concerns a lovely young woman (Paulette Goddard, the sex-symbol of her era) who inherits a castle on a small island just off Havana, Cuba. Her romantic co-star in the film is Bob Hope as a radio personality, Lawrence Lawrence Lawrence. She is warned off by Senor Perada (Paul Lukas), who tel…

Those expecting another comical spook fest from the team of Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard will have to wait until half way through the film before the chills start. Up until then, there is a lot of exposition which leads to obvious conclusions about where the film is going. It does start off out appropriately with a stormy night in New York where heiress Goddard is preparing to leave for Cuba and meets radio commentator Bob Hope (much subtler than he would be in the soon-to-start "Road" series with Bing Crosby) who stows away in her luggage after believing he has accidentally killed a man. Once in Cuba, the chills explode as Goddard and Hope encounter a zombie inside the haunted house Goddard has encountered. Willie Best adds subtlety to the stereotypical scaredy cat black servant, rising above Hope's supposedly funny racist jokes at his expense by appearing smarter than his employer. Anthony Quinn and Paul Lukas are also thrown in to the midst but really have nothing s…

Bob Hope plays a radio announcer who is unjustly accused of murder. He runs into Paulette Goddard who just inherited Black Island from a dead relative. She’s going there on a dark and stormy night and Hope (and his valet Willie Best) join her. She’s also been getting threats that if she goes to Black Island she’ll never leave…alive.Good Hope comedy. It starts right out with some beautifully atmospheric opening credits and keeps right on going. The film is full of storms, fog, darkness and the creepy old castle on the island. None of this would scare anyone but it’s a perfect counterpoint to Hope’s wisecracks.Hope is in top form throwing out some hilarious one liners left and right. Some are groaners but most are very funny. Goddard is beautiful and (surprisingly) not that good. She seems overly nervous and a bit too happy go lucky. Willie Best is (sadly) stuck playing a black man who is scared of everything. It’s not as racist as it could have been but still uncomfortable. But this …
