Never Say Die
Directed by Elliott Nugent
A misdiagnosis of only a month to live sends millionaire hypochondriac Bob Hope (The Ghost Breakers) into the arms of Martha Raye (Hellzapoppin’) and on a madcap matrimonial romp through a Swiss spa in this side-splitting screwball comedy. A deadly widow (Gale Sondergaard, The Spider Woman Strikes Back) tries to trap bean king Mr. Kidley (Hope) into a hasty wedding, but Kidley runs to the altar with oil heiress Mickey (Raye), who is dodging an arranged marriage to a pompous prince. Now the jilted ex-fiancés are chasing the newlyweds in one hilarious honeymoon that includes Mickey’s beau from back home (Andy Devine, Canyon Passage), a daring duel at dawn and non-stop comic mayhem from frequent Hope helmer Elliott Nugent (The Cat and the Canary, My Favorite Brunette) and the great screenwriters Don Hartman (Road to Singapore), Frank Butler (Road to Morocco) and Preston Sturges (The Great McGinty).
