BOB HOPE (MAN) LET'S FACE IT: THE RUBBER LATEX MASKS WHICH YOU CONCIEVED OF, AND CREATED AND USED, FOR THE FILM, "ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL" ARE A MASTERPIECE OF MURDER. WHEN IT COMES TO THE SOURCES FOR THE RUBBER ... WHERE'S WHERE?

LITTLE KOJAKJul 31, 2010

I got to meet Bob`s cue-cards writer in 1979. He planned to retire in another year. So I took the liberty of asking him point blank what it was like having worked for the star for nearly 30 years. `He was very difficult to work for...very demanding.` I couldn`t get him to elaborate. Shucks.

LITTLE KOJAKJul 31, 2010

The truth of the matter is: When there was Hope, there was Bob...When all Hope was gone, there was Bing. But sad to say... both are gone.

Bob`s wife Delores is a true saint for putting up with his other women throughout their marriage!

AARONSep 12, 2008

I LOVED BOB HOPE. I READ THAT HE WAS A NOTORIOUS LADIE`S MAN. HIS WIFE WAS DEEPLY HURT BY THIS - BUT BECAUSE OF HER CATHOLIC FAITH WOULD NEVER DIVORCE HIM. LATER IN LIFE - HE SHOWED REMORSE FOR HIS ACTIONS AND BEGGED HIS WIFE FOR FORGIVENESS. ONE OF THE GREATEST COMEDIANS EVER...

Howard SalatAug 2, 2008

Did Bob hope ever work with Gertrude Lawrence entertaining troops during WW II ?
