This was one of the three films that Bob Hope did for Paramount with the theme of favorites: blonde, spy and brunette. He was at one of the best moments of his career when this spoof about the detective movie genre went into production. "My Favorite Brunette" was directed by Elliott Nugent with a style that made it fun and light to watch. The screen play by Edmund Beloin and Jack Rose parodies those films that showed a charismatic private eye get into all kinds of dangerous situations.

A death row inmate tells the story of how he got his sentence. He was a baby photographer who made the mistake of looking for adventure by agreeing to look after his neighbor's private-eye establishment.
