I'LL TAKE SWEDEN MOVIE CAST: BOB HOPE and FRANKIE
Bob Hope and Frankie Avalon sign a color publicity still of their movie I'll Take Sweden.
Photograph signed: "Bob Hope" and "Frankie Avalon". Color, 10x8. In this light romantic comedy, Bob Holcomb (Bob Hope) is a widower who worries about his teenage daughter JoJo (Tuesday Weld) and doesn't care much for her boyfriend Kenny (Frankie Avalon). 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, 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. Unlike some of the heavily marketed "teen idols" who ruled youth-oriented American radio between Elvis and The Beatles, FRNAKIE Avalon had a real music background. His popularity peaked in 1959, when he had #1 hits "Venus" and "Why". While Avalon made several action movies, beginning with Guns of the Timberland (1960), he is best remembered for his Beach Party movies with Annette Funicello, beginning in 1963. Avalon still tours in "golden boy" revivals with Bobby Rydell and Fabian. Dented in lower left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
