Bing starred with some of the truly most beautiful and talent women that Hollywood had to offer during his long movie career. One actress he starred with more than any other actress was Dorothy Lamour (1914-1996). Dotty joined Bing and Bob Hope on the road in seven "Road" movies, and she also starred with Bing in the costume biopic Dixie in 1943. Despite this, Lamour described Bing as being sort of cool towards her. However, at the time of Bing's death in 1977 they were all talking about an eighth possible Road movie, and Lamour narrated an excellent documentary on Crosby called "Remembering Bing" for PBS in 1987. Whatever their history was together, they made a lot of move magic as these pictures show...
