THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1938 MOVIE CAST
Signatures from stars Bob Hope and Shirley Ross on sheet music for "Thanks for the Memory" from The Big Broadcast of 1938, the last in the Big Broadcast film series
Sheet music signed: "Bob Hope", "Shirley Ross", 9x12. 7 pages. 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. Singer and actress SHIRLEY ROSS (1913-1975) made her first recording at age 20, with Gus Arnheim's orchestra. She made her film debut in Manhattan Melodrama (1933), and in her first major role in Bing Crosby's Waikiki Wedding (1938). She sang duets with Bob Hope in two films: The Big Broadcast of 1938 and Thanks for the Memory. Her only Broadway appearance was in the Rodgers and Hart musical Higher and Higher (1940); she recorded four songs from the show. Lightly soiled through, esp. on right front margin. Lightly toned. Corners lightly worn and creased. Light surface creases. Small tears to binding. Otherwise, fine condition.
