Bob Hope types a letter of recommendation for Mickey Cohen.
Typed Letter Signed: "Bob Hope", 1p, 7x10½. On personal imprinted letterhead. No place, no date. To Whom It May Concern. In full: "I have known Mickey Cohen for a number of years and have worked with him at Paramount Studios for five years, and can truly state that he is a fine, upstanding young man who has proven to be very honest and dependable at all times. He has worked in the Wardrobe Department at Paramount Studios for nine years, handling all types of people. During this time he has learned the show business from one end to the other, and I am sure that he could fulfill any position in the entertainment field of today in an advisory or administrative capacity. Sincerely yours," 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. Among the most popular of his 53 films were the "Road to ..." movies with Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, beginning with The Road to Singapore (1940). In a departure from his usual comedy style, Hope played in 1955 a convincing Eddy Foy, a vaudeville star who put his sons The Seven Little Foys on stage. He 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. Lightly creased and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
