Comedy and mystery in one fun filled package.
By far the best version of this fun mystery that easily surpasses the 1979 remake. Succeeds as both comedy and mystery and is also one of Bob Hope's best roles, before being caught up in all the road films. My only regret is that it is not available in video or DVD.
