Summary "Bob Hope got his start in show business when he was in his twenties, remained active past the age of 90, and lived to be 100. His longevity was remarkable, especially when one considers that he was active in vaudeville, radio, motion pictures and television. His smart quips, fast pace, and breezy manner were perfect ingredients for the brand of comedy that was popular during World War II and the years immediately following the war." "This career study covers each of the Hope films beginning with The Big Broadcast of 1938. Cast and credit information is provided for each film, along with a synopsis, critical assessment and commentary."--Jacket
