Bob Hope's Best Movie
Byron Kolln | 05/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bob Hope is at his best comedy in this movie.Frankie Avalon plays Bob Hope's character's daughter's boyfriend Kenny.Frankie Avalon sings 3 songs in the movie and one of the best scenes is with Frankie Avalon playing the role of Kenny tells Bob Hope that most daughters think their fathers are L7.Bob Hope asks what is L7 and Frankie asks Bob Hope if you put L and 7 together what do you get? Bob Hope asks a square? Frankie Avalon tells Bob Hope that is right square.Jimmy Cross (who was a semi regular in the 1950's syndicated "How To Marry A Millionaire" with Barbara Eden) is in the movie in a uncredited role.Eleanor Audley who guest starred in many shows like "How To Marry A Millionaire" is in the movie also.Character Actress Maudie Prickett also has a role in the movie."
Bob Hope Learns About Love the Swedish Way in Cute 1960's Co

(3 out of 5 stars)

"While it would never be considered anywhere near the best comedy Bob Hope ever made "I'll Take Sweden", has it's own quaint charm coming as it does from a much more innocent age in movie making. The "sexy" goings on in the storyline, probably considered 'risque", back in 1963 now of course seem positively tame by today's standards which in my belief gives this film it's antique appeal. The film was in many ways a wise career move for veteran comedian Bob Hope as here he succeeded in moving with the times, placing himself right in among the supposed "hip" movie going crowd of the mid 1960's who would have gone to see this film mainly because of it's two young and extremely popular costars in the beautiful Tuesday weld and singing sensation turned movie actor Frankie Avalon."
