The Road to Hollywood: My 40-Year Love Affair with the Movies Reviews
Knowing Bob Hope only from his tired routines dressed as a hippie or a chicken on TV, I was surprised to find what a vital comedian he was through most of the fifties, especially in radio and film where his coward hiding behind a brash braggart screen persona was so brilliant. This book lightly recounts Hope’s screen career from the start through 1972. The first half of the book is Hope spinning yearns about how he became involved in each film, usually going for a laugh while telling behind the scenes stories. The second half is Thomas giving an overview of Hope’s career, a chronological listing of Hope’s films with cast, crew, and synopsis, and just one stingy photograph per picture. I hoped for a lot more in the way of analysis and insight, but the book is fun. While Hope’s films also became tired in the sixties and seventies, those after the first half dozen features are well worth seeking out.
Good coffee table book about Hope's film career. About 25% of the book is written by Hope with some brief blurbs about *most* of the movies he's done. Then another 25% is written by Bob Thomas and that section categorizes Hope's films (farce, comedy adventure, domestic comedies, etc.) and discusses them. The rest of the book features credits for each film and has lots of fun photos taken on the set, behind the scenes and for publicity purposes.This book was written after what turned out to be Hope's final film (1972's Cancel My Reservation), so his entire filmography is covered here. It's kind of sad to read Hope talk about wanting to make one more Road picture with Bing Crosby, knowing that Bing soon died after this book's release and Hope never starred in another movie.There is nothing earth-shattering here but it's a fun brief overview of Bob's film career (in his own words) and the pictures are worth looking at.
Written in 1977, this book does not age well. Chock full of inappropriate one liners.
