Bob Hope (I’ll Take Sweden) + Phyllis Diller (Eight on the Lam) = madcap mayhem in the delightful comic romp Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number!, co-starring Elke Sommer (A Shot in the Dark). The wrong number of the title turns out to be that of Hollywood bombshell Didi (Sommer) and the lucky caller is real estate agent Tom Meade (Hope). In need of a quick fix for slumping sales, Meade sees Didi’s celebrity status as a way of boosting interest in a cabin property by offering her the charming getaway as a place where she can hide from the Hollywood moguls and flacks hot on her trail. But wires aren’t the the only thing crossed when Meade’s acid-tongued housekeeper, Lily (Diller), suspecting that he’s having an affair, flies into spy mode to protect Meade’s loving wife Martha (Marjorie Lord, TV’s Make Room for Daddy).
Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! is directed by George Marshall (Houdini) from a story by George Beck and a screenplay by George Kennett, Albert E. Lewin and Burt Styler.
