My Favorite Blonde Overview:

My Favorite Blonde (1942) was a Comedy - Black-and-white Film directed by Sidney Lanfield and produced by Paul Jones.

Hitchcock's The 39 Steps (1935), the progenitor of nearly all spy chase films, which also starred Carroll, appears to have served as the inspiration for this popular romp. Crosby makes a very brief appearance in a memorable scene.
