Didi (Elke Sommer) is a sexy European actress who is famous for bathing scenes in which her nudity is tantalizingly half-hidden by bubbles, but she is fed up with being merely a sex object. She wants to be taken seriously and given meaningful roles. In order to make a strong point about that to her director/manager Pepe (Cesare Danova), she flees from her current movie in Hollywood and drives up the California coast until she arrives in a tiny town in Oregon. While hiding out in a hotel there, the switchboard operator accidentally connects her with real estate agent Tom Meade (Bob Hope). Didi inadvertently gives away her identity to Tom, begs him to keep her secret, and plays on his sympathy to get him to bring her some food since she can't go out and get some herself. Tom's housekeeper Lily (Phyllis Diller) overhears the call, creating the major setup of the movie, a comedy of errors in which Tom is manipulated by DiDi, Tom tries to manipulate her, and Lily is continually spying on Tom and dropping heavy-handed hints that she suspects he is cheating on his wife. Tom knows his wife wouldn't approve of him having anything to do with a woman as gorgeous as Didi, but Tom sees dollar signs more than a potential affair when he convinces Didi to stay at a cabin in the woods he's been trying unsuccessfully to sell for ages. He hopes to increase its value and sales potential by claiming, after she leaves, that "Didi stayed here."
This is a fun movie for fans of Phyllis Diller and Bob Hope. They play off of each other for laughs extremely well. It's a good example of the bedroom farces of the 1960's in which there is plenty of sexual misbehavior hoped for, comically avoided, or assumed to be happening by various characters, but no sex (or nudity) actually occurs. All the naughtiness is merely a big misunderstanding. This sex-farce format allowed conservative moviegoers of the era to enjoy guilt-free, pseudo-illicit thrills.
Fans of this movie will also enjoy I'll Take Sweden and Bachelor In Paradise, two other of Bob Hope's amusing 1960's sex farces.
