Synopsis

Double-bill of Bob Hope comedies. In 'The Road to Bali' (1952), one of the series of 'Road to' films he made with Bing Crosby, the two song-and-dance men decide to take work as divers when they have to leave Australia in a hurry. Dropped off at an island on the way to Bali, the pair soon run across beautiful siren Princess Lala (Dorothy Lamour), both deciding she's the one for them. In 'My Favorite Brunette' (1947), Ronnie Jackson (Bob Hope) is a baby photographer who aspires to the life of the detective working in the office next door. Following a case of mistaken identity he gets the chance for some real sleuthing, charged with finding the missing Baron Montay. Immediately out of his depth, the wise-cracking Ronnie tries to track down the Baron in a gloomy mansion with the Baroness (Dorothy Lamour) at his side, and soon the two are in all sorts of trouble.
