Set of 2 comedy classics. FATHER'S LITTLE DIVIDEND: This sequel to the hugely popular FATHER OF THE BRIDE reunited the entire cast for another charming turn. Although Stanley Banks's (Spencer Tracy) is hoping for some peace and quiet now that his daughter, Kitten's (Elizabeth Taylor) been married off, he soon learns he's in for more chaos as an expectant grandfather. MY FAVORITE BRUNETTE: Legendary funnyman Bob Hope plays a baby photographer who gets mixed up with gangsters in this bubbly slapstick comedy-drama. Ronnie Jackson (Hope) wants nothing more than to step into the gumshoes of office mate Sam McCloud (film noir veteran Alan Ladd), a private investigator who runs his own detective agency. Jackson gets his big break when a mysterious femme fatale (Dorothy Lamour) strolls into his office and, mistaking him for McCloud, asks for help with her uncle's kidnapping. Jackson plays along with the detective role but is soon in way over his head as he becomes embroiled in a dangerous (and comic!) mystery. This spoof of the hardboiled detective genre also features horror legends Peter Lorre and Lon Chaney as Hope's villainous foils.
