They Got Me Covered (1943)
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!
The Princess and the Pirate (1944)
Sylvester the Great (Bob Hope) is a 17th-century entertainer with an act so atrocious, he's exiled from England. Aboard a ship bound for America, he finds himself falling for the beautiful Princess Margaret (Virginia Mayo), a woman uninterested in love - not to mention his lousy one-liners. But when an evil band of pirates attacks the ship and captures the princess, her only hope is the cowardly comedian. Can Sylvester stop cracking jokes and muster the courage to rescue his royal love? In other words, will he and Margaret end up walking down the aisle, or walking the plank?
Alias Jesse James (1959)
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.
The Facts of Life (1960)
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!
The Road to Hong Kong (1962)
Vaudevillians Harry (Crosby) and Chester (Hope) travel to Tibet to search for a drug to restore Chester's memory. Once they find the cure, Chester's memory becomes so good that he accidentally memorizes a secret formula for space navigation. Soon the two meet up with a beautiful spy (Collins) and get slightly sidetracked - to another planet!
I'll Take Sweden (1965)
Bob Hope leads an all-star cast including Frankie Avalon (Beach Party), Tuesday Weld (Bachelor Flat) and Dina Merrill (Operation Petticoat)in this deliriously funny comedy about a beleaguered dad and his ocean-hopping attempt to keep his teenage daughter from marrying! Bob Holcomb (Hope) will do anything to stop his daughter JoJo (Weld) from tying the knot with her lazy boyfriend (Avalon), even move her all the way to Sweden! But once they're "safely" out of the country, JoJo falls for a sly Swedish playboy. Content with a new love of his own (Merrill) and faced with the prospect of more heartbreak for JoJo, Bob makes secret plans for another international trip one that should make everyone happy.
Boy Did I Get a Wrong Number (1966)
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!
