Photograph signed: "My Best/Bob Hope" and "Best Wishes/Soupy Sales" in black felt. 10x8. 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. Actor/comedian SOUPY SALES (1926-2009), born Milton Supman, hosted a number of TV series, including The Soupy Sales Show (also called Lunch With Soupy Sales; 1959-1962, 1976), and Sha Na Na (1978-1981). Sales, known for his wry humor and slapstick comedy, estimated that he had been hit with at least 25,000 pies (and threw a few of his own at "victims" that included Frank Sinatra). Sales appeared in a number of feature films and as a guest star on several TV variety shows and series. He was also a popular New York City radio personality in the early 1980s, where he had a well-publicized feud with Howard Stern, both of WABC. He's best known for his on-air antics, including a 1965 New Year's Day show where he encouraged children watching his show to mail the "funny green pieces of paper" in their parent's pants and pocketbooks to him in return for "a postcard from Puerto Rico!" and urban legends that he sneaked dirty jokes into his kid shows, a legend he vehemently denied. Slightly bowed. Corners rounded. Ink note (unknown hand) Otherwise, fine condition.
