They Got Me Covered Overview:

They Got Me Covered (1943) was a Musical - Comedy Film directed by David Butler and produced by Samuel Goldwyn.


This is a wartime Hope vehicle, which he carries single-handedly, about two journalists in Washington who become involved in a triangle of kidnapping, romance, and murder. Sight gags, as well as one-liners, abound, as do many fun-to-spot cameos and early roles for Doris Day and others. And who's that singing every time Hope opens his cigarette case? You got it: Bing. Butler directed the best of the Road movies, Road to Morocco (1942).
