Fancy Pants (1950)

Amusing remake of Ruggles of Red Gap, with Bob Hope as the actor pretending to be an English butler who is hired by Floud to teach her daughter some manners. However, his well-bred Englishman is so convincing that he is mistaken for an Earl, even attracting the attention of President Roosevelt.

A gentle comedy, not always successful in stringing a coherent plot together, but Hope is a charmer, and there are enough laughs to make this well worth a look.
