This does justice to the work and life of Bob Hope
3 June 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

6/1/18. This is a great biopic about a great entertainer. Bob Hope had his fingers in many entertainment pies, from radio to TV and onto movies. But, he is likely to be remembered for his work with the USO, entertaining American troops around the world through several wars. I really didn't know how diverse his career was and how multi-talented he was. Not only can he do comedy, he was a consummate song-and-dance man as well. It's good to have this well-balanced documentary available that does great justice to the memory of a wonderful man.
