Bob Hope signs a typescript about his first appearance as Oscar's Master of Ceremonies in black ink.
Typescript signed: "Bob Hope". 1p, 8½x11. Titled: Bob Hope, February 29, 1940, 8:30 P.M." In full: "Bob Hope made his first appearance as Oscar's Master of Ceremonies. Walter Wanger, the new President of the Academy, introduced Hope as the 'Rhett Butler of the airwaves.' Hope commented to the audience, 'What a wonderful thing, this benefit for David Selznick.'" At bottom: "The Complete Gone With The Wind Trivia Book - The Movie and More" by Pauline Bartel. 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). 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.
