These are great posters and bring back some fond memories. My favorite was Son of Paleface because Roy Rogers was in it. Alias Jesse James is fun and has a host of cameos including Gary Cooper and Fess Parker.

Hope was funny enough as a stand-up comedian, but in films I always thought he fell flat. I guess I liked the the road movies the best, because of the female star.

One of my favorite Hope flicks is the hardboiled parody My Favorite Brunette.

Jane Russell and Bob Hope, three pairs all in a movie! I enjoyed them all.

I remember these movies! Thought they were dopey but laughed anyway. Bob Hope played a dentist (or maybe he was the patient) giving or taking laughing gas while in agony. Hilarious. Which movie was that? I'd even watch it again

I think that laughing gas scene is from The Paleface. A great one.

I thought these movies were great! My favorite Bob Hope movie was Casanova's Big Night. If you've never seen it, I suggest you try it. Yuo will not be disappointd.

I actually thought Hope was funnier in movies than stand-up. I liked the cameos by all those Western stars in Alias Jesse James and Roy Rogers co-starring in Son of Paleface. BTW, The Paleface was remade as The Shakiest Gun in the West, with Don Knotts. The remake is not a classic, but it is not bad.
