Bob Hope, 1903-2003
When you think of Bob Hope you instantly envision the jaunty irreverence of this consummate entertainer. Born in England and raised in Cleveland, Hope joined the vaudeville circuit as a teen. By the mid-1930s he was a fixture on radio and a star on Broadway. By 1940, in Hollywood, he began the hugely popular series of "Road" movies, partnered with golf buddy Bing Crosby. Hope’s commitment to entertaining U.S. troops from 1941 through the Gulf War was legendary, and Time saluted him with two covers, this one and one in September 1943, for his steadfast volunteer service.
