The Princess and the Pirate (1944)

A cute little comedy. Princess Margaret (Virginia Mayo) is traveling on the high seas under an assumed name. She has been betrothed to a man by her father but she has run away to marry her true love - a commoner. Also on the boat with her is the performer Sylvester the Great (Bob Hope). Soon their boat is under attack by a pirate named Barrett (Victor McLaglen) who knows who the princess is and want to hold her for the king's ransom. However, Sylvester and Virginia escape with a treasure map and end up in the hands of evil La Roche (Walter Slezak), the governor of a Caribbean island. Now La Roche wants Margaret for himself and he also wants the map. Soon the pirates show up wanting the princess and hilarity ensues.

This was a great little comedy. Hope and Mayo had wonderful chemistry together. The rest of the cast was also wonderful. A fun movie worth checking out when you are in the house on a rainy Saturday.
