Short on Comedy with Bob Hope
19 March 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

The most frequently mentioned quote associated with Bob Hope's "Gong Spanish" (reissued as "Bob's Busy Day") is the one Mr. Hope said to New York columnist Walter Winchell about the unfunny film, "When they catch John Dillinger, they're going to make him sit through it twice." Luckily, the infamous gangster was shot dead before he had to sit through a single viewing. This is the earliest Hope film appearance available, although there were some advances after "talkies" took over the cinema. The story involves Hope (as Bob) traveling to a fictional South American country with fiancée Vicki Cummings and her mother. They soak up local color. The material is hopeless, but the star had potential.
