ROAD TO BALI MOVIE CAST: BOB HOPE and DOROTHY LAMOUR Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour sign a black and white publicity photograph of a scene from their film Road to Bali. Inscribed Printed Photograph Signed in Ink: "To Glen-/Good/Luck! Dorothy/Lamour" and "My Best/Bob Hope". B/w, 10x8 overall, image 9¼x7 (one surface). Publicity photograph for Road to Bali (1953), the sixth film in the Crosby-Hope-Lamour "Road" series and the only one shot in Technicolor. Crosby and Hope play George Cochran and Harold Gridley, American vaudevillians stranded in Australia. They sail to Bali and fall in love with Princess Lalah (Lamour). HOPE (1903-2003), a popular vaudeville performer from the 1920s, starred in Broadway musicals of the 1930s, including Roberta and Red, Hot and Blue. The "Road to ..." movies with Crosby and Lamour, were among the most popular of his 53 films. 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. Although best remembered today for her films with 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 in upper blank margin. Light surface striation touches the "op" in Hope's signature. Fine condition.
