Never Say Die

Bob Hope plays a hypochondriac millionaire who thinks that he only has two weeks to live; Martha Raye plays a gold digger who marries him at a Swiss spa. Elliott Nugent directed this 1939 comedy, scripted by Preston Sturges along with Don Hartman and Frank Butler; Andy Devine, Alan Mowbray, Gale Sondergaard, Sig Rumann, and Monty Woolley are among the stars. Graham Greene seemed rather fond of this when it came out.
