I'm Feeling A Bit Old and Nostalgic Now Eli Fennell mentioned in his post about not growing up with the internet. I remember the following that doesn't seem to happen in today's world: *Watching TV with only 10 channels* I lived in L.A. Sunday Kung Fu Theatre, El Vira, Saturday Morning Cartoons, re-runs of old Westerns, Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Donnie and Marie TV specials, Vincent Price, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Popeye. All replaced by 3000 channels of Reality TV, American Idol, or Jimmy Kimmel?? Music? You had two options: Listen to the Radio or.. Purchase an Enormous Stereo. Now? I listen to music through my smartphone, on the computer where I have complete discographies of the bands I like, Spotify, Last.fm or the rare music video on TV. (Don't even get me started about MTV..) Speaking of Phones - They were attached to a wall or to at least a telephone cord. I remember having to untangle the 15 foot extension cords. It was a big deal to receive or make a long distance phone call. Now? I can call Anta ...

He's so great in that! Though I have fantasized about Dean Martin in that role and Bob Hope as Karl Malden. My fantasies are sad
reminds me of dismissal of 60's youth culture by Jerry Lewis/Bob Hope in this clip. Insane.
Long night, long day , but totally awesome! Got to travel through lots of nice SoCal cities and on the way through LA got to stop off at the San Fernando Mission Cemetery and visit some of America's beloved fallen stars!!! Totally awesome! First there was William Frawley, more commonly known as "Fred Mertz" from I Love Lucy! Then the famed rock and roll kid from Pacoima, Ritchie Valens! Not to mention we visited the beautiful mausoleum of Bob Hope, and the gravesite of the Rifleman himself, Chuck Connors!

When I was in the Army, I was in the 158th Army Band stationed at Ft Knox; one of our gigs was the Kentucky Colonels Barbecue at Bardstown, Kentucky, and upon our arrival, we were met by Ernest Borgnine, who shook each of our hands as we got off the bus; he was very nice to us and brought some Southren Belles with him to serve us a mint julep. I just learned a few minutes ago that Ernest Borgnine passed away today. RIP Ernest - I am sure that Bob Hope was there to meet you and welcome you to heaven.I hope you had the biggest pot of burgoo there when you arrived!
I remember watching and thinking how rad it was we had Steve Jobs, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope. Looking back today, we now have no

More from the President's visit to the Inland region. President Obama's weekend residence is in a gated community in a part of Rancho Mirage that includes dealers for Bentleys, Range Rovers, Rolks-Royces and Maseratis. It was reached by the pool along a route that included roads named for Dinah Shore, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and Ginger Rogers. The president departed the private residence at 8:13 am local time to spend part of the day on the coast before returning to Rancho Mirage. Bound for a fundraiser at a private residence in Laguna Beach, then a commencement address at the University of California-Irvine. Air Force One was rolling at 8:35 am local.

Looking east on a newly widened I Street heading towards 8th in 1935, and same view today. In 1934, traffic along U.S. 99-70 (I Street) was steadily increasing because not only was it part of the Ocean To Ocean Highway from the East Cost to the West, but it also served as the main transport route from the Coachella Valley to Los Angeles for many trucks. When the road was widened to the north, many of the buildings that were along the north side were either demolished and rebuilt or moved back. The buildings on the south side of the street remained intact. Another interesting note is that many movies stars from the 1920-50's passed through Colton on I Street on their way to Palm Springs from Hollywood, such as Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz, Bob Hope, Clark Gable...etc. So in a sense, I street has some history to it.

England 15 New Zealand 20 great game, played by two of the best sides in world Rugby. Shame it was spoilt by Welsh referee Nigel Owen :( and credit to Stuart Lancaster :) for not pointing out he had another crap game. Thankfully, TV pundits have no qualms Clive Woodward critique was devastating. Someone at the IRB have to listen and kick Owen off the referees panel. One of two hopes Bob Hope and no hope.
20 years ago this week I was lucky enough to be able to take my parents to France for the 50th anniversary of D-Day. My parents were working folks who never really took a vacation (that didn't involve seeing family in places like Nebraska), so this was their trip of a life time. My dad was a torpedoeman on a Destroyer Escort ( the DE Fechteler) all during WWII, escorting convoys across the North Atlantric and protecting them from German U-Boats. He lied about his age and joined the Navy at the age of 15 on December 8th, 1941 along with tens of thousands of American boys. We sailed over to Europe from New York on the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) on a special themed D-Day cruise. On board were 1800 veterans from the US, Canada, and Australia and their families. Cunard lines always does a spectacular job at making the trip interesting. On board were the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Bob Hope, Andy Rooney, Walter Cronkite, Vic Damone, Edwin Newman, Robert Stack, William F. Buckley, Sir John Mills, Dame Vera Lynn ( famou ...

Sid Melton (May 22, 1917 – November 2, 2011) was an American actor known for his roles as incompetent carpenter Alf Monroe in the CBS sitcom Green Acres and as Uncle Charlie Halper, proprietor of the Copa Club, in Make Room for Daddy and its spin-offs.[1] Melton appeared in about 140 film and television projects in a career that spanned nearly 60 years. Among his most famous films were Lost Continent with Cesar Romero, The Steel Helmet with Gene Evans and Robert Hutton, The Lemon Drop Kid with Bob Hope, and Lady Sings The Blues with Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams. He was later a regular on The Danny Thomas Show and Green Acres, and appeared in flashback on several episodes of The Golden Girls as the long-dead husband of Sophia and father of Dorothy Born as Sidney Meltzer in Brooklyn, New York, son of Isidor Meltzer, a Yiddish theater comedian, and brother of screenwriter Lewis Meltzer. He made his stage debut in a 1939 touring production of See My Lawyer and in 1941 was cast as Fingers in Shadow of t ...

Many years ago as a young Navy wife and mother of small children during the Viet Nam War, I watched as Bob Hope toured the battlefield, visited military installations, ships, and hospitals. I admired him greatly! He brought such joy to the men and women serving their country. I never imagined that there would be another unselfish, giving, and supportive dignitary until Gary Sinise came along. Mr. Sinise is adored and admired by our veterans and their families! He and his Lt. Dan Band: For The Common Good” and Gary Sinise Foundation donate, entertain and fellowship with our wounded on a constant basis. A thank you is never enough, but it’s a start! God Bless you, American Patriot!!….and Semper Fi!
In this photo, Bob Hope is in Cu Chi, RVN, home of F Co, 75th Rangers. Our TOP SGT gave him the Ranger beret that he is wearing, (awkwardly) and the camos with the F Co. Ranger scroll, the 25th Div electric strawberry and sgt stripes. This was in 69. I saw him in 68, 69.

Ah, remember the 1970s, when Texaco got Salvador Dali to guest-direct a Bob Hope special? Good times.
He was the greatest. One of my hopes and dreams was to be in an audience of a Bob Hope Show when I was in the military. I was shipped out from Ft. Benning, GA before Bob Hope came to Ft Benning.and arrived in Okinawa just after he left Okinawa (in the way to Ft. Benning).Oh, well
May 29 - Bob Hope's birthday. . I know because my biography of him is coming out Nov. 4, from Simon & Schuster.

Today sees successful sometime, (but not that often), amusing British comedian and actor who found great success in America - Bob Hope enter the fray in 1903. 35th American President who has an airport, various schools, bridges and roads named in his honour John F Kennedy started life in 1917, before biting the bullet in 1963. Double denim fan and master of three cords on the guitar, one time long haired rocker with Purley's finest band, Francis Rossi started rocking gently in 1949. Unhinged Jodie Foster admirer (obviously not knowing her personal preferences) and Ronald Reagan's attempted assassin, John Hinckley Jr will be celebrating his 59th birthday with his fellow inmates and warders. Youngest sister of the family that takes chimps, wearing bowler hats and malfunctioning dresses as the norm, La Toya Jackson was the baby sister in 1956.

Icon: Marilyn Monroe The word "iconic" is possibly overused in relation with Marilyn Monroe. She was the iconic sex symbol, iconic dumb blonde, she had the iconic hourglass figure, the iconic celebrity marriage to Joe Dimaggio and suffered the iconic tragic death. Now, Bob Hope did hundreds of U.S.O. shows from World War II to the Gulf War. But no single show of his is anywhere near as famous as this one Marilyn did in post-war Korea. It is, dare I say it, the iconic U.S.O. show. And Marilyn Monroe almost never performed live due to chronic stage fright. I believe the next time she performed live after this was when she sang "Happy Birthday" to President Kennedy which is the iconic rendition of that song. Well, it is.
Oh how I would love to hear Kate Smith sing, "God Bless America" one more time! I would love to see one more Bob Hope show to the troops. Hear the USO singers singing "The White Cliffs of Dover," and "Good bye Jimmy, Good bye." Would love to be a Boy Scout once more saluting our Flag and saying the "Pledge to the Flag." God, Please Bless America again.!

My favorite hobby is listening to audio book while I work. I just finished an 8 cassette collection of comedy legends from the Golden Age ( 1940- 1953 ) of radio. Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, Edger Bergman and Charlie McArthey, Amos and Andy, Lucielle Ball, The Great Gildersleeve, etc... I thought it was all just mildly entertaining, and 'cute'. I guess that I'm too used to modern comedy, even though the comedy was much more family friendly back then. I have never liked the hardcore, or dirty/off color stuff. My taste are more Bill Cosby, Ray Ramono, Steven Wright, Jeff Foxworthy, Ken Davis, Chandra Peirce, stuff. Comments?

Not to many Hollywood marriages last a long time but there are exceptions. Here are some of those remarkable unions. Actor Norman Llyod was married for 75 years, Karl Malden was married for 70 years, Bob Hope, 69 years, Sid Caesar, 67 years, Eli Wallach, 66 years, Perry Como, 65 years, Charlton Heston, 64 years, Eve Marie Saint, 63 years, Carl Reiner, 65 years, Kirk Douglas, 60 years, and the list goes on with many more celebrating over 50 years of marriage. Have a great day, Donny.
High school honoring alumni from any armed forces. Building a memorial wall for them. Completed form for my brother. He was one of the first graduating classes in 1958. Added a note. He went from being a private at Camp Pendleton to being a commander (Lt. Col.) of Camp Pendleton when he retired. Served two tours of Viet Nam. Was in ambush to protect Bob Hope when he was on one of his Christmas Tours. First responder to Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Was awarded the silver star and purple hearts. In his 36 years of service, he was awarded 29 citations and awards. He was in the Battle of Hastings in Viet Nam. He already has two memorial bricks in his honor at Fenton Memorial Park, so, why not a plague in his name at his high school? Paternal Grandpa was a medical doctor. Dad and other grandpa were farmers and exempt from military service in the 1940's.
Bob Hope, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, George Burns, Red Skelton, Danny Thomas, Carol Burnett, Johnny Carson...these are some of the television icons I grew up watching on television when I was a kid. They were true superstars of the medium. Few if any TV stars of today measure up in comparison.

This man was unique by today's standards... comparable with Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, Bea Arthur, Jack Benny, athletes of the day, etc. So think twice before you utilize the word "hero" as there aren't many quite like this man was... He has my respect beyond any words I can muster.

Johnny Carson did it five times Jack Lemmon and Whoopi Goldberg did it four times and David Niven hosted the Oscars three times

April 17th 1961 - The 33rd Annual Academy Awards ceremony, hosted by Bob Hope, ended the ten year drought during which producer, writer, director Billy Wilder could not capture the elusive Oscar. Wilder was no stranger to Oscar, though. He had three of the golden statuettes sitting on his mantle (or wherever the Wilders keep their awards) from previous years. But this year, the winnings were much sweeter. Not only did Mr. Wilder receive the Oscar for Best Writing/Story and Screenplay/Written Directly for the Screen (shared with I.A.L.

"The Apartment" marked the last black and white film to win Best Picture (with Best Director going to Billy Wilder), during the era when use of black and white film was still common, as well as the last until 1993 when Schindler's List won. Best Actor - Burt Lancaster – "Elmer Gantry." Best Actress - Elizabeth Taylor – "Butterfield 8." Best Supporting Actor - Peter Ustinov – "Spartacus." Best Supporting Actress - Shirley Jones – "Elmer Gantry."

Letter # 71 August 18, 1969 Dear Family!!! Well, I’ve been transferred to Ward C. It’s the same as Ward L but it isn’t air-conditioned. This is so you can get used to the heat again. It’s only been running 85-90 which isn’t too bad compared to the 115 back in May and June. I think I’ll be getting discharged in about three days. When I do I’m gonna go up to “Freedom Hill.” There they got a PX, bowling alley, movie theater and USO. That’s where Bob Hope comes during Christmas. Well last night I went to the movie and saw “Dr. Doolittle.” It was something like a musical. Plus I drank two beers. They tasted good. Then I came back and watched “Disneyland” and Bonanza” on TV. Then I went to bed. I’ve been going to bed at 10:00 and getting up at 7:00. Then I sleep from 10:00 to noon. Then from 2:00 to 4:30. So you can see I’m not doing too bad. Well I’ve got to be going for today but I’ll write tomorrow. I’ll be going to the movie tonight and drinking some beer. Be careful ...

Danny Kaye, Jimmy Durante, Red Skelton, Bob Hope, Jack Benny, I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but I feel Bill Cosby may be the last of these types of Mohicans who make us laugh out loud with not a hint of profanity...saw an old film I've never seen, Red Skelton's, he had the most adorable scene with a very young Butterfly McQueen, curiously devoid of degrade, so glad to see it...and this amazing number with Lena Horne & Hazel Scott, God that woman could play piano - and entirely glamorous in her manner, awesome...just saying'...I love now, but some oldies are just so-o good!
Family 101: Yesterday was the 10 anniversary of my dad's passing so I do what I have done every year I worked. Got home & found out that Mickey Rooney passed away..I fell sorry for all those in Heaven, between Bob Hope, George Burns, Milton Berle, Lucy, Mickey & other great comedians that have passed on along with my dad asking them all to pull his finger I hope everyone's sides aren't aching from laughing so much. What makes me sad thou is that only one person said to me they were sorry my dad passed away & that was my grandma, come next month will be the 10th anniversary of her death. I am Praying that I have that day off, it is a nice sunny day & so I can take myself to the one place I have always enjoyed going with her.. The beach. I feel closer to God & my grandma whenever I go there. Lord how I miss those 2..

Him and a few others like Doris Day who turned 90 this past week, and Clark Gable, James Garner, Bob Hope, Judy Garland, Danny Kay, Ben Cosby, Fred Astaire, Betty Grabble, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemon, Jane Russell, Rita Hayworth they don't make movie stars like these any more.

NBC NY STUDIOS, PART 18...CENTURY THEATER "The History Of NBC New York Television Studios, 1935-1956" On March 25, 1954, NBC did it's first broadcast from The Century Theater when it telecast the Academy Awards show for only the second time. The year before, the 25th Academy Awards show made its television debut and it's first bi coastal ceremony from the Pantages Theater in Hollywood and The International Theater in New York. By the time the 26th Academy Awards show rolled around, The International was closed, or closing and by summer, would be torn down. The March 1954 broadcast from the Century was a remote...the control room had yet to be added as on March 21, the last performance of The Azuma Kabuki Dancers occurred and marked the end of the Century's history as a theatrical venue. At the link is MC Bob Hope in Hollywood throwing the awards show to Thelma Ritter at The Century.

Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Carol Burnett, & Pearl Bailey - Side by Side by Side
David Letterman has announced he will be retiring. Is he still on? I thought that happened like, in 1998 or so. Note to Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Conan, etc; be funny, stay funny and when it comes to political humor, make it humorous, not mean and bitter. (See Johnny Carson, Bob Hope etc.) because when you turn into a political sour puss, (See Rosie, Letterman etc.) you tend to cut your audience in half. Networks hate that. Half of millions in ad revenue while your salary continues to rise does not work. Fallon has figured out that conservatives as well as liberals can watch his show, boost ratings and buy sponsor's products. Oh, and be funny at the same time, something Dave forgot how to do.
Perhaps I'm too much of a DFW geek, but I still call them "Bing Crosby" and "Bob Hope".
It is hard to Lean-in when survival is the main goal for a woman and her children. Let's at least support the minimum wage. Read this: As a 14-year-old in 1968, I watched news broadcasters ridicule a group of feminist women who had picketed the Miss America pageant. I was delighted by the protest, but unsettled by the sneering condescension of those reporting on it. “Pretty girls don’t have those problems,” pageant host Bob Hope said of the demonstrators. I’d largely forgotten about those nascent days of the modern feminist movement until very recently. First I heard Mike Huckabee’s shabby, upside-down assertion that women’s right to contraception under the Affordable Care Act is a form of government-imposed (excuse me — “Uncle Sugar” — imposed) helplessness. Then I heard the predictable but still astonishing objections to President Obama’s call for a higher minimum wage as governmental repression of initiative and hard work. ['Lean In'] is essentially a book about how women can fin ...

Actor and singer DOOLEY WILSON (1886 – 1953) was born on April 3rd. He is best remembered as the piano-player and singer Sam who sings "As Time Goes By" at the request of Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) in Casablanca (1942). Wilson was a drummer and singer who led his own band in the 1920s, touring nightclubs in London and Paris. In the 1930s he took up acting for good, playing supporting roles onstage on Broadway and in a series of modest films. His role in Casablanca was by far his most prominent, but his other films included My Favorite Blonde (1942) with Bob Hope, Stormy Weather (1943) with Lena Horne and the Nicholas Brothers), and the western Passage West (1951). .

Viet Nam 1966 Richard, (my husband), never really talked a lot about his time in Viet Nam, other than he had been shot by a sniper. However, he had a rather grainy, 8 x 10 black and white photo he had taken at a USO show of Ann Margret with Bob Hope in the background that was one of his treasures. A few years ago, Ann Margaret was doing a book signing at a local bookstore. Richard wanted to see if he could get her to sign the treasured photo so he arrived at the bookstore at 12 o'clock for the 7:30 signing. When I got there after work, the line went all the way around the bookstore, circled the parking lot, and disappeared behind a parking garage. Before her appearance, bookstore employees announced that she would sign only her book and no memorabilia would be permitted. Richard was disappointed, but wanted to show her the photo and let her know how much those shows meant to lonely GI's so far from home. Ann Margaret came out looking as beautiful as ever and, as second in line, it was soon Richard's turn. ...

The most boring Oscars ever! I like Ellen, but pizza? Wrong host. I can't imagine Bob Hope handing out pizza or Mc Donald's 40 years ago to Grace Kelly, Cary Grant and Elizabeth Taylor, boorish. The selfie was funny but overall this really makes the Oscars cheap and tacky, sad really. The host was not up to snuff. The comedy for the most part was ill-conceived and poorly executed. The ending to the otherwise well done memorial was an insult. A self indulgent drug addict actor with more time than Shirley Temple Black or Peter O' Toole ? The beautiful and talented Lupita Nyongo's dress was a major disappointment, bad color, bad cut terrible accessories. Cate Blanchett was the fashion winner hands down in Armani Prive. Finally are we over the endless Red Carpet dribble, behind the curtain nonsense and hosts in the audience? and Al Rocker? really?

Oscar observations thus far: Ellen is the new Bob Hope. Jared Leto should never work without an editor. Jim Carey auditioned brilliantly for whatever he was apparently auditioning for? Harrison Ford needs better glasses and Kim Novak put fear in the heart of every actress over 40.
To get folks in the mood for Oscar, tonight, here are some random quotes from year's past: "You know, the Oscar I was awarded for The Untouchables is a wonderful thing, but I haven't changed and I can honestly say that I'd rather have won the US Open Golf Tournament." - Sean Connery "We want to thank all of you for watching us congratulate ourselves tonight." - Warren Beatty "Tonight we set aside petty differences, forget old feuds and start new ones." - Bob Hope "Hosting is like making love to a beautiful woman... it's something I only get to do when Billy Crystal is out of town." - Steve Martin "It is a remarkably beautiful piece of home furnishing, the Oscar. I used to keep it up in front of a mirror so that it looked like two." - Mercedes McCambridge "The Oscar sits on some shelf above my desk. If there was an earthquake, I could actually be killed by my own Academy Award." - Helen Hunt "I got an agent. He said, what do you wanna do, and I said, I want an Oscar nomination. That's your job, that's what ...

Dorothy Lamour (December 10, 1914 – September 22, 1996) was an American actress and singer. She is best remembered for appearing in the Road to... movies, a series of successful comedies starring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.[1] Lamour began her career in the 1930s as a big band singer. In 1936, she moved to Hollywood where she signed with Paramount Pictures. Her appearance as "Ulah" in The Jungle Princess (1936) brought her fame and also marked the beginning of her image as the "Sarong Queen." In 1940, Lamour made her first Road to... comedy film, Road to Singapore. The Road to... films were popular during the 1940s. The sixth film in the series, Road to Bali, was released in 1952. By that time, Lamour's screen career began to wane and she focused on stage and television work. In 1961, Crosby and Hope teamed up for one more, The Road to Hong Kong, but actress Joan Collins was cast as the female lead. Lamour made a brief appearance and sang a song near the end of that film. In the 1970s, Lamour revived her ...
