The Paleface (1948)
The Regal Cinema’s Wild West Wednesday series presents The Paleface starring Bob Hope and Jane Russell.
Calamity Jane (Jane Russell) is working undercover for the U.S. government, trying to capture a gunrunner named Terris (Robert Armstrong) in exchange for a pardon for her previous misdoings. But when Jane’s partner is killed, she takes up with bumbling dentist “Painless” Peter Potter (Bob Hope) and passes him off as a gifted gunslinger.
When Jane is captured by a tribe of Native Americans, however, Potter finds that he actually has to play the hero that Jane has painted him to be.
