MY FAVORITE BRUNETTE MOVIE CAST: BOB HOPE and DOROTHY LAMOUR Black and white publicity photograph of a scene from My Favorite Brunette signed by Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. Inscribed Printed Photograph signed in Ink: "Bob Hope" and "To Juan/Good Luck!/Dorothy Lamour". B/w, 8x10. This film was a lampoon of the nourish "hard-boiled detective" school popularized by Raymond Chandler. 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. Best remembered today as the film partner of Hope and Crosby, 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). Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
