Movie Reviews

Mike McCLUSKEY | 02/27/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This collection is worth the purchase price if you do not already own "Road to Bali". Bob fans will also find value in the segments from 50's TV shows in which Bob guest starred on the Jack Benny show and on the Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra show. There is also a segment in which Bob guest stars on the Bobby Darin show. Other material includes segments recorded (in a studio) in front of serving military personnel from the 40's and 50's of sketches, dancing and singing from Bob and his guests. The sketches are lampoons of military life and are great vehicles for Bob's wit and physical timing.Unfortunately much of the material in this collection is of "less than perfect" video and audio reproduction with little effort in cleaning up the original source sound and vision evident.
This is most notable on the copy of "My Favourite Brunette" which is nearly inaudible and very washed-out visually. This is a classic early Bob film so don't buy this set if all you are after is this film. There are other productions of "My Favourite Brunette" available from other publishers."

"The Primer to BOB HOPE Movies:
1930s' films.............*****
1940s' films.............*****
1950s' films.............*****
Early 1960s'..............****
Latter Films...............***
All the ROAD Pictures are worth
the money, except "THE ROAD TO
SINGAPORE"... but STILL better
SHOWs are butchered due to the
copyrighted songs."
