Interesting note about Bob Hope's Age.


In the beginning of the film Keenan Wynn asks Bob's character his age. He replies 42. Mr. Hope was actually 69 when this film was made a difference of 27 years. He did not look 69 in the film. I just found this mildly interesting.

I'm thinking he was just joking when he said 42. I think part of Hope's schtick along the way was lying about his age.

Actually, it was Jack Benny who made lying about his age part of his act.

Bob looks actually much younger than a 69 yr.old;

-his energy has always been quite keen.

"Bob" (are you his pal?) looks his age in this film.
