The Bob Hope “Thanks for the Memories” collection features six Hope films made in the 1930s and 1940s.  Three of the films, Thanks for the Memory, The Cat and the Canary, and Nothing but the Truth are making their DVD debuts.  While the six films are not Hope’s Best six films, they all are very good and the set features a nice array of extras.  My full reviews after the jump:

“Thanks for the Memory” (1938) is titled after what would soon become Hope’s well-known theme song.  He plays novelist Steve Merrick who is struggling to complete his book.  His wife Anne (Shirley Ross) decides to take a job to help pay the bills.  She goes to work for Steve’s publisher who also happens to be her former fiancée who still has a thing for her and wants to get her out of the house.  This is the weakest film in the set. »
