BOB HOPE and DOROTHY LAMOUR
Black and white publicity photograph of Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour in one of their movies.
Photograph signed: "Bob Hope" and "Dorothy Lamour". B/w, 10x8 overall, image 6x4 (one surface). These two stars made seven popular "Road To ..." movies between 1940 and 1953. BOB HOPE (1903-2003) was born in England, moving with his family to the U.S. when he was four. A popular vaudeville performer from the 1920s, he starred in Broadway musicals of the 1930s, including Roberta and Red, Hot and Blue. He made 53 movies, mostly comedies, and won three honorary awards from the Academy of Motion Pictures (1940, 1944, and 1965). Seven months before Pearl Harbor, he appeared in the first of his shows for American servicemen, a tradition he would continue through a Persian Gulf tour in 1991. His success as a comedian continued unabated from radio to television with the long-running Bob Hope Show (1950-1967) and with guest appearances continuing through 1992. A well known philanthropist, friend to Presidents, and avid golfer with his own tournament (the Bob Hope Desert - later Chrysler - Classic, begun in 1960), Hope has made an enduring contribution to American culture. Best remembered today as the film partner of Hope and Crosby, DOROTHY LAMOUR (1914-1996) was a star on her own in the 1930s, a popular radio singer with a screen image established by The Jungle Princess (1930). Lamour made her own frequent USO appearances for the troops, appeared in frequent Hope specials, and appeared in films up to 1987 (Creep Show 2). Fine condition.
