5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Hope: Thanks For The Memoreies Collection, Nov. 10 2010

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Bob Hope: Thanks for the Memories Collection (Thanks for the Memory / The Cat and the Canary / The Ghost Breakers / Nothing but the Truth / The Road to Morocco / The Paleface) (DVD)
This sparkling collection of Bob Hope movies showed how Hope reached top stardom and would stay there for the next 30 years. Thanks For The Memories (1938) is an OK programmer that reunited him with Shirley Ross. But The Cat And The Canary (1939) finds 35-year old Hope at the peak of his game. It's an old haunted house comedy thriller that plays beautifully today and contains some of his best gags. Never before out on DVD, it's an opulent production with the complete recreation of an Louisiana bayou and creepy housekeeper played to the hilt by Gale Sondergaard with Paulette Goddard as Hope's comedy foil. Sample Line "Don't you feel scared in this empty, dark house?" Hope:" No, I've played vaudeville." Hope and Goddard were immediately reteamed for another haunted house classic The Ghost Breakers with a cast that includes Anthony Quinn and future Oscar winner Paul Lukas. In his hotel hears a clap of thunder and wonders "Is Basil Rathbone giving a party?" Up next is Nothing But The Truth (1941) with Goddard again and Hope forced to only tell the truth for an entire day so he'll inherit money. THe first four are new to DVD followed by the enjoyable Road To Morocco (1942) with Hope, Crosby and Lamour and the Technicolored pairing of Hope and Jane Russell in the spoof western The Paleface (1948). Certainly, it's one of Hope's best ever performances. The lines are extra funny because his radio writers extensively rewrote the dialogue. The entire collection is a must see.

This review is from: Bob Hope: Thanks for the Memories Collection (Thanks for the Memory / The Cat and the Canary / The Ghost Breakers / Nothing but the Truth / The Road to Morocco / The Paleface) (DVD)
As far as I'm concerned these are the best of Bob Hope's movies, especially the ones with Paulette Goddard. Would recommend this to a friend.
