Boy, Did I Get A Wrong Number! (1966)

The divine Didi (Elke Sommer), a European actress known more for her bubble bath scenes than for her acting, decides she wants to be taken seriously as an actress. She runs away during the middle of a scene while filming in Hollywood and winds up in Oregon.

While she is staying in a hotel, the operator accidentally connects her with a real estate agent named Tom Meade (Bob Hope). She asks Tom to bring her some food and when he does he suggests that she go to his cabin in the woods.

She asks him not to tell anyone where she is because she doesn’t want to go back to Hollywood.

Now Tom must keep the secret, especially from his wife and from his suspicious housekeeper Lily (Phyllis Diller).

With the exception of a zany chase scene featuring a purple-panted Diller at the helm of a motor scooter, there is nothing in the film that distinguishes it from the average run-of-the-mill comedy. But if you like Bob Hope films, you’ll like this one.
