My Favourite Brunette (1947)

I watched this Bob Hope film while eating my breakfast and then decided to carry on watching because some of the lines cracked me up as well as the visual gags. I especially liked the scene where Peter Lorre kept sneakily placing the jewelry box in Bob's path only to have him miss it every time.
Bob Hope is a baby photographer whose office happens to be next door to the office of a private detective. ho ho ho, classic.
"I woke up with a lump on my head the size of my head."
The one-liners were great but I just loved the way he described everything, those voiceovers can be so blah in old murder movies, but Bob's commentary was top-notch.
"It was one of those real swanky joints where they eat mink for breakfast."
