Nothing But the Truth Bob Hope Paulette Goddard 1941

This was made during Bob Hope’s best period, and this fun, playful comedy has Bob committing to tell the truth for 24 hours – or lose $10,000. Paulette Goddard is the romantic interest, and their chemistry again works in this, their third film together.

The Can’t-tell-a-lie premise is a reliable comedy hook – whether for Jim Carrey’s in “Liar, Liar” or Lucy Ricardo on “I Love Lucy.”

Paramount again supported Bob with a strong supporting cast, including Willie Best, Edward Arnold, and Leif Ericson.
