BING'S BUDDIES: BOB HOPE

On May 29th, Bob Hope would have turned 107. For nearly 60 years, Bob Hope entertained the world. Personally, I never thought he was the greatest comedian, but with Bing Crosby, Hope made seven wonderful Road movies. Bing and Bob Hope had a chemistry, on and off the screen, that has never been equaled. Bob Hope and his wife Dolores (who just turned 101) were among the few mourners who were invited to Bing's funeral in 1977. Bob Hope died in 2003, but his memories live on...

  2. We're missing Bali, Rio and one where Bing sings "Moonlight Becomes You" - Morocco perhaps?
