Fancy Pants is a musical comedy remake of Ruggles of Red Gap in which
Charles Laughton had one of his best roles in the 1935 version that was
directed by Leo McCarey. To say that Bob Hope's interpretation of the
English butler who went west is different from Laughton's is the
difference from porterhouse steak to hog's livers to use one of old Ski
nose's favorite expressions.
Not that Fancy Pants is bad, in fact it's very funny and definitely the
best of the four films that Bob Hope made with Lucille Ball. Ruggles of
Red Gap was funny, but it was also whimsical and dramatic in spots and
it was about a shy and proper English butler who adjusts to the new
environment in America he finds himself and in the process makes some
To begin with Hope isn't a butler, he's an actor and a clod of an actor
who has the knack for spilling all kinds of liquid on fellow player
Norma Varden. The whole company is hired by a guy who was posing as
titled nobility to woo wealthy American Lucille Ball.
Unlike a lot of Hope's leading ladies, Lucy gets her innings,
especially playing this Calamity Jane type. She and mother Lea Penman
are touring the continent and Penman decides Hope is just the guy to
put a little refinement into their home and incidentally make them the
envy of their small New Mexico town.
One thing leads to another and Hope winds up having to pose as nobility
himself when the townspeople are misinformed and President Theodore
Roosevelt comes to town for a visit. That doesn't sit well with Bruce
Cabot who has designs on Lucy.
John Alexander who was 'Theodore Roosevelt' in Arsenic and Old Lace
gets a chance to play him for real in Fancy Pants. His scenes with
'Earl' Hope are classic. I also liked Eric Blore who played the
unintelligible 'Earl' in Hope's repertoire company.
Though director George Marshall and stars Hope and Ball go for belly
laughs rather than some wry chuckles, Fancy Pants holds up very well
after almost 60 years. But if you are looking for Hope to try and out
do Mr. Laughton, than don't bother with it.
