Bob Hope: MGM Movie Legends Collection
Alias Jesse James
It takes a real sharp-shootin', rough-ridin' horseman to keep Jesse James in line. But until he arrives, insurance broker Milford Farnsworth will simply have to do. Bob Hope stars as the yellowest cowboy ever to sit in the saddle in this fast-paced western spoof riddled with rapid-fire laughs and sure-fire stunts! Featuring deliriously entertaining cameos from western stars Fess Parker, James Garner, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and more.
Boy Did I Get A Wrong Number
Bob Hope and Elke Sommer form an unlikely duo in this farcical comedy about a curvy office bombshell who tempts a small-town family man when a wrong number connects in a big way and personal lives get more tangled then Phyllis Diller's hairdo! When a gorgeous movie star (Sommer) becomes tired of Hollywood, she heads to the country and straight into the life of married man Tom Meade (Hope), putting him in the middle of a murder mystery and full of implausible explanations!
The Facts Of Life
There's nothing wrong with a little romance between man and wife... unless, of course, she's not his wife. Bob Hope and Lucille Ball star as two people seemingly at odds who fall deeply in love - and in deep trouble with their spouses - in this "hilarious and winning comedy" (The New York Times) that'll leave you weak with laughter! This hilarious marriage of rapid-fire gag lines to laugh-out-loud funny plot lines is such a delight - you may think it's a sin!
They Got Me Covered
Bob "Hope is in his best form" (The Hollywood Reporter) and Dorothy Lamour "lends her charms" (Variety) in this comedy-thriller about a bumbling newspaper reporter whose work lands him in a spy ring of espionage, sabotage and murder! Robert Kittredge (Hope) is a foreign news correspondent known for scooping the big stories. But when he misses the beat on Germany's invasion of Russia, he heads home to his fellow reporter and fiancee Christina Hill (Lamour) in Washington, D.C., in hopes of saving his relationship, career and reputation!
I'll Take Sweden
Bob Hope will do almost anything to keep his impressionable teenage daughter (Tuesday Weld) from marrying her lazy boyfriend (Frankie Avalon), even if it means moving her all the way to Sweden. What he finds out is that you can change the locations, but you can't change the girl. With its "excellent direction and performances" (Variety), this classic Bob Hope comedy shows that naive adolescent love is not that different from the so-called maturity of adult love.
The Princess And The Pirate
Sylvester the Great (Bob Hope) is a 17th-century entertainer with an act so bad he's exiled from England. Thinking that he'll make it overseas, he takes a ship bound for America, and falls for the beautiful Princess Margaret (Virginia Mayo). When an evil band of pirates led by the crooked Hook (Victor McLaglen) attacks the ship and captures the princess, she finds that her only hope is the cowardly comedian. Can Sylvester stop cracking one-liners and muster the courage to rescue his royal love?
Road To Hong Kong
"The laughs come thick and fast" (Variety) in this seventh hilarious Road movie from Bing Crosby and Bob Hope when vaudevillians Harry (Crosby) and Chester (Hope) travel to Tibet to search for a drug to restore Chester's memory. Cavorting through a series of madcap adventures with Joan Collins and Dorothy Lamour - as well as Peter Sellers, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and David Niven - our boys dish out a "fricassee of jokes and gags" (Los Angeles Times) in what may be the wildest entry in their popular film series!
