Format: DVD
This is a fun film collection which showcases Bob Hope's wide range of comedic talents. Though much of the comedy is broad and expected (Road to Hong Kong), there are some surprises, most notably I'll Take Sweden (with beach party singing swinging numbers by Frankie Avalon) and the Facts of Life (a semi-serious illicit romance with Lucille Ball). Though not digitally remastered, for the most part the films are in good shape (there are short but noticeable portions in The Princess and the Pirate which are blurred). Unfortunately there are no bonus features (aside from the occasional trailer), but this collection is enjoyable and recommended for fans.

HASH(0xa2b59054) out of 5 stars Bob Hope MGM Movie Legend Collection Dec 11 2007
By Harry Brewer - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good collection at a great price. There are seven movies on individual discs which are They Got Me Covered, The Princess and the Pirate, Alias Jesse James, The Facts of Life, I'll Take Sweden, The Road to Hong Kong & Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number.

By far, the two standouts are The Princess and the Pirate & They Got Me Covered. Alias Jesse James is available for the first time on DVD, it's his last comedy-western & a pretty good one. After this it's a drop off in quality. The Road to Hong Kong is the weakest of the Road movies & pretty lame, to boot. The Facts of Life co-stars Lucille Ball & is good, as all the Hope-Ball pairings. The Facts of Life & I'll Take Sweden are Hope vehicles that aim at getting a younger audience & are mixed bags. The former co-stars Frankie Avalon & Annette Funicello, the latter has Elke Sommer (eye candy). Boy, Did I Get a Wrong number has Hope's first pairing with Phyllis Diller that's not among his best.

This set concentrates more on Hope's later period (early to mid sixties) which is past his prime as to the quality of the movies. It's the other three movies that really make this set worthwhile. Here's how I would rate these movies on an individual basis:
1) The Princess and the Pirate*****
2) They Got Me Covered****
3) Alias Jesse James***
4) The Facts of Life**
5) I'll Take Sweden**
6) Boy,Did I Get the Wrong Number**
7) The Road to Hong Kong*

These discs are high quality but there aren't any bonus features. The price is what makes this set the good deal that it is.

HASH(0xa28421bc) out of 5 stars Bob Hope collection Jan. 7 2008
By Jennifer Starks - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The quality was great. I thought it might be grainy ~ but it wasn't. They're great movies with wonderful memories. The quick wit humor without the worry of somebody dropping the F bomb or nudity is fantastic. To be able to watch clever dialog with your kids ~ especially when they are advancing from cartoons. Definately a worth while investment!

What more can I say, It's Bob Hope! These classic movies are a must have for anyone that enjoys classics. From the 50's western stars doing cameos in Alias Jesse James to Phyllis Diller in Boy, did I get a wrong number Bob is just that....Bob!

a great situation comedy, timeless in many ways, except how much Bob Hope is missed.
to cast Elke Sommer is masterful. Let's face it, she is an incredible beauty and all
heads turn when she arrives in any of her many films. even Phyllis Diller pulls out
all stops for a laugh. Marjorie Lord is the perfect wife. don't leave for popcorn.
you might miss one of Hope's numerous one-liners. If you missed this '60's gem. it's
never too late for the best.

HASH(0xa259f9a8) out of 5 stars A fun, 60's sex farce Aug. 15 2012
By Kate McMurry - Published on
Didi (Elke Sommer) is a sexy European actress who is famous for bathing scenes in which her nudity is tantalizingly half-hidden by bubbles, but she is fed up with being merely a sex object. She wants to be taken seriously and given meaningful roles. In order to make a strong point about that to her director/manager Pepe (Cesare Danova), she flees from her current movie in Hollywood and drives up the California coast until she arrives in a tiny town in Oregon. While hiding out in a hotel there, the switchboard operator accidentally connects her with real estate agent Tom Meade (Bob Hope). Didi inadvertently gives away her identity to Tom, begs him to keep her secret, and plays on his sympathy to get him to bring her some food since she can't go out and get some herself. Tom's housekeeper Lily (Phyllis Diller) overhears the call, creating the major setup of the movie, a comedy of errors in which Tom is manipulated by DiDi, Tom tries to manipulate her, and Lily is continually spying on Tom and dropping heavy-handed hints that she suspects he is cheating on his wife. Tom knows his wife wouldn't approve of him having anything to do with a woman as gorgeous as Didi, but Tom sees dollar signs more than a potential affair when he convinces Didi to stay at a cabin in the woods he's been trying unsuccessfully to sell for ages. He hopes to increase its value and sales potential by claiming, after she leaves, that "Didi stayed here."

This is a fun movie for fans of Phyllis Diller and Bob Hope. They play off of each other for laughs extremely well. It's a good example of the bedroom farces of the 1960's in which there is plenty of sexual misbehavior hoped for, comically avoided, or assumed to be happening by various characters, but no sex (or nudity) actually occurs. All the naughtiness is merely a big misunderstanding. This sex-farce format allowed conservative moviegoers of the era to enjoy guilt-free, pseudo-illicit thrills.

Fans of this movie will also enjoy I'll Take Sweden and Bachelor In Paradise, two other of Bob Hope's amusing 1960's sex farces.
