By Cheryl TOP 100 REVIEWER on Feb. 2 2011
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.

Bob Hope MGM Movie Legend Collection Dec 11 2007
By Harry Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Bob Hope collection Jan. 7 2008
By Jennifer Starks - Published on Amazon.com
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!

It's Bob Hope! Feb. 8 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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!

boy did i get the right number! May 31 2010
By dj dave - Published on Amazon.com

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.

One of the Best of Hope's Late Films May 16 2010
By drkhimxz - Published on Amazon.com
Did women really wear their hair this way in 1966. That sight alone on two of the lead females was worth the price of admission. The guys, too, while not quite matching the girls in quaintness to 2010 eyes, came in a close second with those shrunken fedoras they sport throughout.
Starting with these laughs which were unplanned when the film was made, there are many more in this Bob Hope vehicle, which relies more on old-fashioned slapstick than on the typical Hope gags. While having little more to do than show her body, deliver a few accented lines, and be somewhat manhandled in closeups unsuitable to a stunt double, Elke Sommer still more than earned her pay by just being second banana to Hope. Phyllis Diller, a frequent support player to Hope in his various comedy venues in those years, does her particular thing well. True she was an acquired taste, as they say, but in this film, she does provide some fun. The remainder of the supporting cast do what is required of them to give the star his laughs. Hope, himself, nearing the end of his film career, has better material and, therefore, more laughs than some of the other films he made as it became only a marginal activity to being America's favorite comic here and abroad. At this time, he had something like one-third of the twenty all time hit shows on TV with his specials devoted to his entertainment of the troops, most recently in Viet Nam, where a bitter struggle was rapidly escalating.
So for many good laughs, no irony or wit, no character development, no symbolic meanings, a story line just strong enough to carry the sight and sound gags, I can, still laughing, recommend this as feather-light, totally escape, viewing.
