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.

Anyone coming to a viewing of "The Facts of Life", thinking that they will see a zany Lucy and a fast quipping Bob Hope are liable to come away a bit let down here as these two comedy legends take on relatively "straight" characters in a most interesting social comedy/drama about the pitfalls of infidelity and marital commitments. Seen through the thoughts of Lucille Ball's character of "happily married" Kitty Weaver, "The Facts of Life", marks a most pleasing change of pace for the two leads who handle the very "adult" subject matter (at least for 1960!), with great expertise. Lucille Ball in particular in a performance far removed from lovable Lucy Ricardo is superb and her strong dramatic moments here really illustrate a part of her acting expertise seldom seen before.
"The Facts of Life", focuses on life in a tightly knit upper middle class suburban community, and as Lucy's character of Kitty informs us everyone knows each other, socialises with each others and knows what is in store for them probably for the rest of their lives. Kitty is married to Jack Weaver (Don DeFore),a workaholic who really hasn't been spending the proper amount of time with his wife and children. Larry Gilbert (Bob Hope) is another "branch", of the extended social network in the community who is married to "perfect" wife Mary (Ruth Hussey). Even though the families socialise together and even vacation together every year Kitty always views Larry as a pain in the neck who delivers unfunny comedy sketches at the local club and really isn't someone she wants around alot of the time despite the families being friends.

A very charming little film about a husband and wife from two different marriages who wobble on the verge of adultery when they're stuck on a long-planned vacation without their respective spouses. The script, by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank (long-time writers for both Bob Hope and Martin and Lewis) is a nice balance of wit and sentiment, and there's a lovely performance by Lucille Ball--this is Lucille Ball the actress, not Lucy the supreme and inspired dipstick--the ending, when she pulls away from her almost-lover, despite her feelings for him, is genuniely wrenching.
Unfortunately, the would-be lover is Bob Hope, who was OK in vaudeville and radio, and in movies crafted as elaborations on his schtick in these other mediums. But Hope was a limited comedian at best, and was never, NEVER an actor. His attempts to have deeper feelings on screen are almost embarassing. With the right actor, such as James Stewart or Cary Grant, this film might have been a minor classic. As it is, it's certainly worth having a look. If only for Lucy.

I've seen many many movies with Lucy in them and I have to say this is my alltime favorite! Maybe because Bob Hope is in it too.... This movie is about two married couples, the two girls are friends and the two guys are friends. They spend all their vacations together. But the married guy Bob Hope and the married girl Lucy can't stand each other. But then when they are about to go on vacation both Lucy's husband and Bob's wife cant go so they have to go alone. Thats how it all begins with them falling in love. It's a hilarious and romantic movie. A must see for all Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, or just old time movie fans.

This is a wonderful Ball-Hope movie that takes a serious, yet often humerous, look at relationships. The characters of Ball and Hope are married--but not to each other--and fall in love when unexpected events find them alone together on a vaction. They spend much of the film trying to forget what has happened, but find it increasingly difficult. A bitter-sweet ending makes this movie a classic, both for movie fans, and espcially the fans of these comedic giants.
