It occurred to me tonight that my generation is no longer in charge. People who were newborns when we were finishing high school and college (back in the 1960s and 1970s), are now the commentators on the news, the CEOs, the forty-ish teachers and professors, our nurses and doctors. Our children smile indulgently --'cause they love u--s when we wax rhapsodically about Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; or about The Beatles, or about growing our hair long and *ing in the mud at Woodstock. Except for a few rock bands, our culture is gone and forgotten --although we still impose it on everyone. You haven't lived until you've heard "Light My Fire" as light-jazzy elevator music.. Try this out on your teenage grandchildren: Ask them who the following were: Bob Hope, Jack Benny, Al Jolson, Hubert Humphrey, Princess Grace, Gene Kelly, John Ford, Arthur Godfrey, Alan Shepard, Barry Goldwater, Gus Grissom, Yuri Gagarin, Winston Churchill, George Burns, Bing Crosby, Steve Allen, Norman Mailer, and Jackie Gleason. Tell m ...
Sometimes I think it'd be wonderful if they made movies like the old "Road to..." movies with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, or Bud Abbott and Lou Costello movies... but with Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch... they just have that classic hollywood feel.
Yep, still with us.may I inquire to ask. WHY...WHY GOD? Bring back Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Dean Martin.Joey Bishop even., take her instead. LMAO.. IT's A JOKE, a sick one, but a JOKE alll the same.
I want my AMERICA BACK, I miss those things that the Liberals and other evil people have had removed or changed. Prayer in school, the Pledge of allegiance to the United States of America, MERRY CHRISTMAS being a very good thing to say, and to see on banners at stores and office buildings, schools and elsewhere. 4th. of July celebrated like it once was, with parades. Kindness, no legalized Abortions, No legalized Marijuana or other drugs, No Same Sex marriage, No UNI-sex bathrooms, No open Homosexuals in government or schools or the military. No Obama or all of his Liberal kind. No Madelyn Murray Ohara. No Al Sharpton, or Dennis Rodman to name just 2 of the thousands like them. No Miley Cyrus, Lindsey Lohan, or Britany Spears or other *** like them. No George Clooney or other hollywood punks. NO SUCH TERM AS " P O L I T I C A L C O R R E C T N E S S " Give me John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, Johnny Carson, Ed Sullivan, Frank Sinatra, Marlyn Monroe, Charleston Heston, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, Lucille Ball and . ...

"Silver Bells" is a classic Christmas song, composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans. "Silver Bells" was first performed by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in the motion picture The Lemon Drop Kid, filmed in July–August 1950 and released in March 1951. The first recorded version was by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards, released by Decca Records in October 1950. After the Crosby and Richards recording became popular, Hope and Maxwell were called back in late 1950 to refilm a more elaborate production of the song. "Silver Bells" started out as the questionable "Tinkle Bells." Said Ray Evans, "We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay went home and his first wife said, 'Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?'" The word is child's slang for urination. This song's inspiration came from by the bells used by Salvation Army people on New York City street corners. The song charted in the United Kingdom for the first time in 2009 when a duet by Sir Terry Wogan and Aled J ...
Beautiful Dorothy Lamour sings 'CONSTANTLY' to Bob Hope in 1942's ROAD TO MOROCCO, as an envious Bing Crosby looks on!
Never guess what am doing, baking and listening to Christmas radio shows by the USO, Armed Forces radio, CBS & NBC from WWII and in the 50's. What is astonishing, I know most of the actors, singers and comedians like, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Harry James, Jimmy Durante, Dinah Shore, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Fisher, Don Ameche & Kay Kyser And the best part are the commercials/sponsers, like Armed Forces, Eglin Watches, Camel cigarettes, Ins Co of No. America. Most important part, Christ/God was brought into every show not once but several times by stories, songs or comments. Family and friends were the priority while presents were one or two favorites given out not the commercialized of today. Sad it has changed so much the meaning of Christmas.
7 things you may not know about me...thanks Emily Houck 1. I body surfed and boogie boarded while growing up in Huntington Beach 2. My first college I attended was Murray State in Murray, KY 3. One of my favorite bands of all times is Oingo Boingo 4. I often believe I was born in the wrong era - I LOVE Carey Grant, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, and Danny Kaye! 5. I had goals of becoming an Animal Nutritionist (equine emphasis) and living in Kentucky - but with a turn of events, I became a teacher - BEST decision EVER! 6. I worked at the swine unit while attending Murray State and pigs became my second favorite animal behind horses 7. I have been a student at 5 different colleges The first person to like this will get a number from me!
Okay, people keep giving me numbers and I try to get out of it by telling them I did this already, but I am giving in. Here are some more random facts about me. Why not take advantage of the opportunity to talk about myself with people actually wanting to hear it. 1. My favorite super hero is Captain America. I grew up a military brat so you kind of end up bleeding red, white, and blue. I think the new Captain America movies and the new character is really cool, but I grew up with comics and as far as live action this is the Captain I remember: Yep, I ended up riding motorcycle when I got older. 2. I grew up watching classic movies. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Cary Grant, The Rat Pack, Jerry Lewis, Abbot & Costello, Sophia Loren, Laurel & Hardy, Rock Hudson, Gregory Peck, Ingrid Bergman, Jack Lemmon, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis Presley, Lauren Bacall, Jimmy Stewart, Doris Day, Ava Gardner, Greta Garbo, Spencer Tracy, Paul Newman, Judy Garland, Henry Fonda, and many others, and of course Marilyn Monroe. Those are man ...

The Hotel Georgia: A Vancouver Tradition . The celebrities who stayed there included Edward, Prince of Wales (later the abdicating King Edward VIII), John Barrymore, John Wayne, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole (who integrated the hotel), Marlene Dietrich, Kather - ine Hepburn and Beatrice Lillie. My favourite story in the book tells of the sharp-witted Lillie sailing into her room followed by a flock of reporters and spotting a pigeon on the window sill. She opened the window and asked the pigeon, “Any messages?”
Just like romantic movies, the buddy film is a tricky balancing act that requires the perfect blend of personality, conflict and camaraderie. Basically, you want to see these two friends interact onscreen just as much as you want to see the guy get his girl. When this works it adds an extra layer of entertainment to any genre. Abbott had his Costello, Bob Hope had his Bing Crosby and (for a much briefer time, unfortunately) Paul Newman had his Robert Redford in... BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969). This was considered a new type of western as the moviegoer was basically asked to root for the bad guys; bad guys who were shown in an almost comical light, making them extremely likable. The antihero was born and authority was being questioned, a common theme in the late 60s. However, this movie succeeds on the relationship between Butch and Sundance. Their breezy banter is some of the most recognized in movie history, right down to the final scene. If you're going to leap off of a cliff to es ...

Famous Puerto Ricans: Marquita Rivera (May 18, 1922 - October 21, 2002) was a Puerto Rican actress, singer and dancer who became the first Puerto Rican actress to appear in a major Hollywood motion picture, Road to Rio, opposite Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour.Dubbed the "Queen of La Conga," "Queen of Latin Rhythm" and "Latin Hurricane" during various stages of her career, Rivera, went on to enjoy a strong musical career both in the United States and in her native Puerto Rico. A childhood friend of bandleader Tito Puente, Rivera's musical talents were noticed early. Born Maria Heroina Rivera de Santiago in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, she was the youngest in a family of seven sons and five daughters. The de Santiagos moved to New York City when Rivera was only three months old and it was there that her musical career blossomed. Studying dance and flamenco at an early age (6), she originally studied with Rita Hayworth's father, well-known dance master Eduardo Cansino. Rita herself gave Rivera a set of ca ...

In 1963, Judy Garland was a forty-one year old fading star just a few short years from her own premature death from a drug overdose, while Barbra Streisand was twenty-one and an emerging star who already had a cult following. Garland, always broke, needed her new television show to be a hit -- and Streisand had a reputation as a guest star who could bring standout ratings and reviews. And so it was that Garland pieced together her own fragile self-confidence and invited the irrepressible Streisand to be a guest on her show: "At forty-one, Garland looked a decade older. Pills, alcohol, heartache, illness, roller-coaster dieting -- and the recent ongoing battles with her husband over their children -- had all taken their toll. This television show, for which she'd now taped eight episodes, was supposed to make her rich. That was what Begelman and Fields had promised. Garland was always broke, due to bad financial management and overspending. She envied male contemporaries such as Bing Crosby and Bob Hope wh ...

REVIEW: Identity Thief Not original or funny enough to warrant a follow-up viewing Due Date did it three years ago. Planes, Trains & Automobiles did it better than both of them. So what does Identity Thief have to offer to the already-overloaded “road movie” genre? Turns out not too much. Identity Thief is the story of a man who has his identity stolen and must bring the identity stealer all the way across the country in order to clear his name and keep his job. It is, in no way, shape or form, an original idea. Bing Crosby and Bob Hope perfected this situational comedy style way back in the 1940s. Thousands upon thousands of similarly-themed movies have been made since then. But if you’re asking yourself why should you give this movie a shot, then the answer is simple: You either like Jason Bateman or Melissa Mccarthy enough to watch it. As mentioned before, it’s very similar to 2010’s Due Date. Unlike Due Date, where I found Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr. both equally annoying, Identi ...
1991's "Hudson Hawk" with Bruce Willis and for all it's excessive bad-mouthing (from the critics), a lot more entertaining than it's given credit for.plus where else are you going to see Willis and Danny Aiello as a modern day Bob Hope and Bing Crosby and pure Looney Tunes-style silliness throughout!
Kinko the Contortionist!! The father of my mothers uncle. Appeared on the Ed Sullivan show numerous times. Kinko's son, George had a house littered with memorabilia. Pictures of Kinko, Bob Hope, and Bing Crosby hanging out.if I remember correctly.

Road To Bali was the 6th. in the series of 'Road' pictures and the only one to be filmed in Technicolor. Bing Crosby and Bob Hope play two song and dance men...
The great Leslie Townes Hope (Bob), was born on this day in 1903. He had funny movies, mostly with Bing Crosby, in the "Road" movies, especially. His TV specials were great, and of course his trips to see the troops, wherever they were at the time. One of the best entertainers ever. He was 100 years old, when he died, July 27, 2003. His humour has been greatly missed since. RIP Bob.

C2C Gallery functions like a small art center. Christi Dreese paints there. Artists drop off their fresh ceramics there. It is said that Bob Walma and Lee Brown are practically a buddy movie there, like Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. After two years, Cindy Casemier has cultivated a cast of characters which is an artistic family as close as the team at Uptown Gallery or the secret society behind the Fire Barn Gallery. Grand Haven could do well with another C2C Gallery, but such places are guided by people with commitment and an extra special knack. C2C Gallery might be the source of the Coal Tipple Resistance, which is natural because the Tipple is made out of concrete, a ceramic. C2C Gallery, with Christi Dreese's help, leads efforts to preserve the Grand Haven lighthouse. Good things beginning at a modest storefront. Visit!
Roberta Burke is my mom. Among art, travel, friends, family, kids, grandkids and great grandkids, she LOVES music. Can't sing all that great or play anything, though, but that has never stopped her. She's never nudged her way onto stages or choirs, only stepping up when invited. Growing up, we never missed the most important music events television allowed us to witness, like the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, and all the other musical variety shows and specials with the newest songs, Shindig, Hootenany, Johnny Cash, Bing Crosby, Tom Jones, The Hollywood Bowl, Bob Hope, Dean Martin, Wayne Newton, Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra or Liberace, you name it, we watched it. The Partridge Family and the Monkees. We watched the Saturday night country shows, too. Panther Hall, the Wilburn Brothers, Porter Waggoner, Buck Owens, Hee-Haw. If she was excited, we wanted to check it out. Never one time made us watch Perry Como or Lawrence Welk. We watched all the Elvis and Frankie and Annette beach movies, too. She once won a rad ...

Seth Macphalane=Bob Hope; Halle Berry= Dorothy Lamour. But who could be Bing Crosby? in new "Road To." movies
Bing Crosby, John Wayne, Bob Hope, Red Skelton, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. They have all passed on and they have been replaced with Jay-Z, Nikki Minaj, Marilyn Manson and Lil Wayne. How much longer will the youth of America sit silently and witness the decay of the moral fabric of our society? Is there not a voice among our youth that will be bold enough to speak out for that which is just and right even while being ridiculed by their peers and professors? They will dismiss me and what I have to say as a member of that generation they have grown to resent. But you have the ear of your friends, your classmates and your co-workers. How much longer will you remain silent? DBK
Dorothy Lamour. Worked with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby a lot. She reminds me of Missy. Sassy like. U know!
Patti Andrews, the last of The Andrew Sisters, has died at the age o 94. Some of you may not know who she was, but they were the greatest act in the '40's, '50's and even into the 'early '60's. THey did many USO tours w/Bob Hope, entertaing the troops. They appeared in movies w/Hope, Bing Crosby & othere greats ("Road To Rio" was one). They performed w/ such great bands as Glen Miller, the Dorseys, Bob Crosby and singers as Carmen Miranda, *** Haynes, Crosby, Desi Arnez & others! "Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy" and "I'll Be With You (In Apple Blossom Time)" were two very great hits for the sisters. They were from an era when songs xould be understood, had meaning and reflected the trials & happiness of life. Bette Midler had high praise for the sisters, especially Patti. RIP, Patti; you will be missed. I am sure your sisters are waiting for you in heaven.
CNYNews.com Baby Boomer Alert : How Many Remember The Mike Douglas Show ??? ~~~ By BIG CHUCK [ 2 weeks ago ] Mike Douglas was a constant “ afternoon companion ” to all Baby Boomers !!! ...

Couldn't sleep last night, so I compiled a list of 5 of my favourite films. Here goes: 'A Connecticut Yankee at the court of King Arthur', starring Bing Crosby and William Bendix 'Charlie's Aunt' Jack Benny 'The road to Utopia' with Bing Crosby & Bob Hope 'Going my Way' Bing Crosby . pattern beginning to emerge here. 'San Francisco' Jeannette McDonald & Clarke Gable. So. they're very old and most of them funny. What say you?
What a combo! Enjoyed both, but really wanted Hobo on the Road to Calvary co starring Bob Hope & Bing Crosby.
suggests that they remake the classic "Road to..." movies that starred Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson would be great and actually fit the comedy characteristics that the original duo had. Anyone?
Bing Crosby and Bob Hope may have never been on The Road to Mali but U.S. special forces sure are.
This Day In Crime History Dec 10, 1963: Frank Sinatra Jr. endures a frightening ordeal Frank Sinatra Jr., who was kidnapped in Lake Tahoe, California, on December 8, is allowed to talk to his father briefly. The 19-year-old man, who was trying to follow in his father's footsteps by pursuing a singing career, was abducted at gunpoint from his hotel room at Harrah's Casino and taken to Canoga Park, an area of Southern California's San Fernando Valley. After the brief conversation between father and son, the kidnappers demanded a ransom of $240,000. Barry Keenan, the young mastermind behind the scheme, had also considered abducting the sons of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. But he and his partners decided upon Frank Sinatra Jr. because they thought he would be tough enough to handle the stress of a kidnapping. Although the crime was originally scheduled for November, President Kennedy's assassination delayed their plan. Immediately following his son's abduction, Frank Sr. received offers of assistance from Attorn ...

I miss, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, John Wayne, Maureen O'hara, Fred Astaire. There will never be actors and actresses like this again. No one brought the honor and joy to the big screen like they did, and they are truly missed.

I'm old enough to remember as a kid those variety specials at Christmas--Andy Williams, Bob Hope & Bing Crosby. Highlights of holiday memories. Not sure who has filled those memory slots for the younger generations.
With Andy Williams gone, we were talking at work, who is replacing all those we have lost, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and many others. I just don't see people coming up in the ranks to take up the banner. Thank goodness we still have all those gone on video tape and old movies. On another note it is looking good for rain a bit later on. That will be good but we don't need the hail and strong winds they are saying may come along with the storms. Had a good day at work and looking forward to a nice evening at home with Cathie. Have a nice evening everyone.

Trigger was bred on a farm co-owned by Bing Crosby. Roy bought Trigger on a time payment plan for $2,500. Roy and Trigger made 188 movies together.

Bing Crosby and Bob Hope do each other's songs at a 1970 benefit for the Eisenhower Medical Center. It was aired on television as a Bob Hope special. Intro by Johnny Carson. (If you want to get straight to Bob & Bing, skip to about two minutes in.
Anyone where Bing Crosby and Bob Hope go somewhere.
Watching one of my dads fav movies "Road to Bali" with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. It makes me wonder what they would think of today's president and today's problems. Would would Ronald Regan think? What would Abraham Lincoln think? And what would George Washington think? They weep from Heaven for that which they so diligently loved and died for.
thank god for Bob Hope and Bing Crosby
"Vandelay" sounds like one of those Bob Hope, Bing Crosby & Dorethy Lamour "On the Road" movies from the early 1940s!
First useless fact of the day: Sir Leslie Townes Hope, (May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was an English-born American comedian and actor who appeared on Broadway, in vaudeville, movies, television, and on the radio. He was noted for his numerous United Service Organizations (USO) shows entertaining American military personnel—he made 57 tours for the USO between 1942 and 1988. Throughout his long career, he was honored for this work. In 1996, the U.S. Congress declared him the "first and only honorary veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces." Over a career spanning 60 years (1934 to 1994), Hope appeared in over 70 films and shorts, including a series of "Road" movies co-starring Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. In addition to hosting the Academy Awards fourteen times, he appeared in many stage productions and television roles, and was the author of fourteen books. He participated in the sports of golf and boxing, and owned a small stake in his hometown baseball team, the Cleveland Indians. He was married to Grac ...
Is there anything better than Bing Crosby + Bob Hope?
this just in, Bob Hope is still dead as is Bing Crosby, no new road films are planned
in my youth we had 4 basic channels on our attenna, maybe 20 and 54. we watched family shows. anyone my age know what they were. We saw USO and college shows with Bob Hope. different seasonal shows with Bing Crosby there was Jack Benny and Johnny Carson. Who remembers the Sonny and Cher show or Flip Wilson. Kojac, Mannix or Cannon The detective show where Uncle Jed was the detective. today on just your basic fee you have like 160 - 220 channels. you see all the new shows and a lot of the old shows. (Barnaby Jones). you have a button labelled MENU. on it you have a break down of types of shows you may watch. now lets move to telephones. in my youth in middleburg when we picked up the phone there were 2 other families on the line. today we can watch tv on your phones. we can talk on the phone blocking the pathways in stores or backing our oversized trucks out of parking spaces in packed paring lots. i dunno. are we really better off?
I dreamed I was part of a film crew making a USO clip to show at movie theaters during WWII. Starring Frank Sinatra who was singing one of his classic songs except that the words were changed so he could roast all the other celebrities there, which included Bing Crosby, Jimmie Durante, Jackie Gleason, Ed Sullivan and at least a dozen more prominent people. I wish I could remember the tune because it was pretty funny. After a few minutes Dean Martin took over the singing and ended by saying something funny to Bob Hope, who was apparently the master of ceremonies or whatever. Oddly enough, many of the stars were not from WWII, they were from the fifties and sixties. I just remember thinking it was the best show ever. You gotta love dreams where everyone is laughing the entire time. I woke up smiling.
is watching old movies with the kids; it doesn't get better than Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Don Knotts!
Have been out of it for a week.just saw where Phyllis Diller passed. Wow, what a huge comedy icon. She is now with Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and the rest of those immortal personalities that gave so much of themselves unselfishly. Rest in Peace!!
"A Very Harold & Kumar 3-D Christmas" is kind of like a Bing Crosby & Bob Hope road movie for a new generation
My Granddad and I driving up to Cardiff. We're a bit like Bob Hope and Bing Crosby
The least funny of those Bing Crosby and Bob Hope movies is the Road to Perdition.
...isn't that a Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movie?
Oh yeah and I have watched e4very bloody pirate, swashbuckler movie ever made between 1939 and 2012. I am now working on Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movies. Next will be Abbott and Costello and I will work my way up from there. Not much to do at 2 am in the morning I dare say!
I miss my lovely Dad every day..but what he did give us growing up ..was Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movies...just watched the road to Singapore..!!! xx
Bob Hope I said Bob Hope was the greatest entertainer of all time. Let me explain why. He started out in vaudeville and acted on the stage as a child. He was on radio and movies and later television. He passed through all the stages of modern entertainment media and was the cleverest one in the bunch. His style was always light, never heavy. He didn’t have a lot to say but what he did say was always the funniest thing you could ever imagine. I used to watch his TV specials back in the 60s. His monologues were priceless. No one could possibly match them. Johnny Carson had good monologues but nowhere near Bob Hope. I might even say something like Bob was the "Bob Dylan of comedy." You can’t really analyze that. The “road movies” he made with Bing Crosby were so entertaining. They ad-libbed a lot (Bing Crosby was also a comedian-type, though mainly a crooner). Bob Hope could also sing, which he did on some of those road movies. (I actually thought Bob sang better than Bing!). Special, special, specia ...

The songs were good but it was the stars like Sinatra or Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope that made the movies great.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Phillis diller . The world has truly lost a wonderful lady today . Although Ms. diller was feeble during her grandsons wedding ... I was more than pleased to see that she had not lost her amazing sense of humor . Hollywood and the world over has lost the last of the greats . The golden age actors such as Bob Hope , Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and yours truly Phillis Diller paved the way for alot of these young actors today . They were cinematic pioneers who opened the doors for actresses such as Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett. For all the people who don't know who this people are do yourselves a favor and do some research. My heart goes out to her family. May God bless her and her entire family.
Watching the 1942 film Road to Morocco with Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. Classic!!!
Martin Scorsese: "Yes. If you engage in that life, certain things are expected of you. First of all, to make a lot of money for everybody. Or to be the muscle. You have to perform, and you have to be careful: the scene that Joe Pesci asked to be put in, and improvised with Ray Liotta—the “You think I’m funny?” scene—shows that you could be killed any second. They don’t care who’s around. The trick in the picture was to sort of ignore that danger, make it a rollicking road movie in a way—like a kind of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby picture, with everybody on the road and having a great time. When the Sicilian police finally broke up the Mafia in the early nineties, they arrested some guy—I forget his name, but he was the second in command—and an Italian reporter asked him if any movie about that world was accurate. And he said, Well, Goodfellas, in the scene where the guy says, “Do you think I’m funny?” Because that’s the life we lead. You could be smiling an dlaughing one second, an ...

//I miss the days when acting required talent. Talent and class. Steve Carrel is not funny. Will Farrel is not funny. Seth Rogen is not funny. Bob Hope was funny. Bing Crosby was funny. Gene Wilder was funny (still is.).

96 year old client who seemingly can't communicate any longer, finds the words to chat and express her gratitude during massage. We talked about the weather, old Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movies, and she really noticed the electrical "switch" that turned on when we worked her Large Intestine meridian with very gentle shiatsu. She loved it, and I'm so very blessed.

"On the Road to Tucson" starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.
June 29, 1939. A duo enters the offices of Paramount Pictures, where they are told of a new series of comedic films in which they could star. They would be perfect for it, say the execs. One member of the team is sold on it, but the brains of the two decides to take a pass. How might history have changed if she had accepted. She? That's right. Today in 1939, The "Road To..." pictures that starred Bing Crosby and Bob Hope were first offered to. George Burns and Gracie Allen.
