They Got Me Covered (1943)

Another great Bob Hope comedy. Hope plays Robert Kittredge, a bumbling reporter. In his latest article he states that Germany will never invade Russia however they do a few hours later. He is fired from his job and needs to find a way to get his job back. He travels to the Washington, DC branch of the the association he worked for where his girlfriend, Christina Hill (Dorothy Lamour), works. He soon gets a tip from a source, Vanescu (Lenore Aubert), about a Nazi spy ring operating in Washington. Robert decides that breaking this story is the way to get his job back. He implores Christina to help him and then they can get married. Of course things do not go as planned and one of Christina's roommates is kidnapped because she gets wrapped up in the story. Now they need to find the spies to save the roommate and Robert's job.

This was a cute comedy. It gets a little silly in places but that is to be expected. Lamour and Hope had wonderful chemistry together. If you enjoy screwball comedies then you have to check this one out.
