Bing Crosby and Bob Hope partnered many times over their careers, probably most notably in the "Road" movies with Dorothy Lamour. (There were seven Road movies, such as Road to Zanzibar and Road to Morocco.) They also appeared together on stage, radio, and television. Here, they are doing a 1945 radio appearance for NBC - it looks like they're fooling around as they always did! Photo courtesy of SMU.

A photo of Lael Carr with Bob Hope. Robert F. Carr was what our family called a Golf Pro, he played in many tournaments as well as taught Golf in California. All of his children played golf too. This was one of the tournaments that Bob Hope was also playing in. Lael is one of Eloise M. and Robert F. Carr's daughters. I am not sure, but this may have been in Long Beach or Palm Springs, California around 1948 - 49.

Bob Hope (born Leslie Townes Hope) was an actor, singer (kind of!), comedian, friend of Presidents, perennial host of the Academy Awards, and entertainer of the troops for decades. Actually, you name it, he did it. He was also a golfer and sponsored his own tournament. (As did his movie partner, Bing Crosby). If you were in the military from WW II on, you probably saw a Bob Hope show in the field of combat. He always took beautiful (female) stars with him to thrill the troops. He appeared in and/or hosted at least 199 shows. He and his family emigrated from England to the U.S. in 1908 but he certainly became known as the ultimate American. Emilio Grossi photography.

The man laughing hard is Bob Hope. I believe the gentleman with the mustache was a trombone player, and I don't know who the others are.
