Product description

Bob Hope's career stretched from Vaudeville to the Gulf War. He remains one of the great movie stars of all time and one of the most popular entertainers ever. And yet, despite his millions of fans, he is in many ways one of the least known superstars. Lawrence Quirk's biography sets the record straight as he charts the rise and rise of a great entertainer from his birth in Eltham, England in 1903, by way of Vaudeville hoofer and comic, Broadway musical star, radio-comedy pioneer, through decades of Hollywood stardom, celebrated Oscar emcee, and much, much, more.
