This is one of those films whose appeal rest totally on the viewer's appreciation of the star, in this case Bob Hope, being placed in a ridiculous situation to set up a nonstop barrage of wisecracks and the usual Hope antics. A happy-go-lucky New York disc jockey about to be married to

the girl of his dreams (Marshe), Hope wakes up one day to find that he is the heir to the kingdom of Barovia, whose king has just been assassinated by revolutionaries. Hasso is the female general who convinces Hope that he is needed, though doing so more with her looks than powers of speech. This

kicks off a mad chase through New York as Hope and Hasso try to avoid the Bolsheviks who have put him on their hit list. What's more, there's Marshe with her cop brother, Bendix, also on Hope's tail; they want him for the proposed wedding ceremony. Bendix wants it clear that no bum is gonna walk

out on his sister. It's all Hope, and he delivers in his own particular style, enhanced by the efforts of his favorite writers. Next to Hope, Bendix is the only other performer allowed to shine; he's perfect as a dimwitted cop, a role, to exaggerate a bit, it seems he was born to play.
