Bob Hope was at one time the Biggest Comedy Film Stars. He of course, shared some of the limelight with Bing Crosby. "The Bob Hope Collection" gives you six of his best comedy films. "The Great Lover" is my favorite. Bob is leading a troop of Boy Scouts on an ocean cruise. How plausible is that story line? He of course falls in love with a passenger and he has his hands full. Bob Hope gave us so many great films and TV Variety Shows. His trips to the troops, especially during wartime, were sensational. They might be the funniest shows you will ever see. KCLS has the Vietnam War Bob Hope Comedy Specials tour DVD's. Don't miss them!
