Eight on the Lam

Eight On The Lam is a good example of a fine cast that can do nothing to help a weak script. Bank teller Henry Dimsdale (Bob Hope) takes off with his housekeeper Golda (Phyllis Diller) and his seven children after being accused of embezzlement. Jasper Lynch (Jonathan Winters) is called in to track down Dimsdale and the missing money. Austin Willis plays Henry’s scheming boss Mr. Pomeroy. Five different screenwriters are responsible for this mess that is the worst of the hopelessly unfunny Hope comedies of the 1960s.
