Bob Hope was born to William Hope and Avis Townes as the fifth of seven children. In 1908, his family boarded SS Philadelphia and immigrated to the U.S., settling in Cleveland, Ohio. From the age of 12, he earned a few dollars performing comedy, dancing and singing along the Lunar Park area. He entered some amateur dancing and talent contests as Lester Hope, winning a prize in 1915 for impersonating Charlie Chaplin. As a kid, he joined the Boy’s Industrial School located in Lancaster, Ohio.

In his early 20s, Bob worked as a lineman and also a butcher’s assistant, before finally getting into the show business, when Fatty Arbuckle, a silent film comedian, noticed him in 1925. In 1929, he changed his first name from Leslie to Bob, a name believed to be of a racer driver called Bob Burman. In 1934, he started performing on radio, switching to TV when the medium became more popular in the 50s. In 1954, he started doing TV specials, including hosting 18 Academy Awards between 1941-1978.

In film, Bob hope signed a lucrative contract with Educational Pictures for six films, starting with a comedy called ‘Going Spanish’ that was released in 1934. He signed another deal with Warner Brothers, performing Broadways shows and making movies. In 1938, he was signed by Paramount Pictures and he moved to Hollywood to make the film ‘The Big Broadcast of 1938.’ His signature song ‘Thanks for the Memory’ was first introduced in that film. As a film star, Bob is best known for starring in the ‘Road’ series of comedies with Bing Crosby, such as ‘My Favorite,’ ‘Road to Singapore,’ ‘Road to Morocco,’ ‘Road to Zanzibar,’ ‘Road to Rio,’ and ‘Road to Utopia.’ Between the years 1938 and1972, he also starred in over 50 theatrical features and short films. Beginning April 1960, Hope also did numerous specials for NBC.

When the World War II started in September 1939, Bob volunteered to perform to the passengers of RMS Queen Mary. On 6 May 1941, he performed the first USO show at March Field, California. He then travelled with troops, entertaining them as they went to fight during World War II, Vietnam War, Korean War and the last phase of the Lebanese Civil War. This made him extremely popular and loved, plus increasing his net worth.

When it comes to honors and awards, Bob Hope was one of the most recognized actors of his time. In his career he was rewarded with more than 2,000 awards and honors, which include an amazing 54 honorary doctorates. President John F. Kennedy gave him the prestigious Congressional Gold Medal in 1963 for his service to the country. He was bestowed another award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, by President Lyndon Johnson in 1969 for services he had committed to do for the armed forces throughout USO. Other notable awards he received include Jefferson’s Awards, National Medal of Arts, and five Academy of Motion Pictures Art and Sciences honorary Awards.

In his personal life, Bob Hope married his first wife, Grace Louise Troxell, in January 1933, but the couple divorced after one year (1934). In February that same year, he married Dolores Reade, and the two adopted four children: Eleanora, Kelly, Tony and Linda. They lived first in Manhattan before moving to Toluca Lake, California in 1937, where they lived until the time of his death.

Bob hope remained in great health until his old age, when he admitted to hospital due to gastrointestinal bleeding and later pneumonia. On 27 July 2003, he succumbed to pneumonia while at his home located in Toluca Lake.

7In addition to the three theaters cited as bearing Hope's name, Alumni Hall at the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD, houses the Bob Hope Performing Arts Center.
8After his death in 2003, an airport in Burbank, CA, was named "Bob Hope Airport" in his memory.

13In 1969 he was worth in excess of $150 million, largely as a result of shrewd business and real estate investments.

15Retired from show business at the age of 93 after filming Bob Hope's Bag Full of Christmas Memories (1993).
16Despite a well documented reputation for frugality, Hope is believed to have donated an estimated $1 billion to charity.
17At the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, Hope released a statement saying he wished he could go there to entertain the troops, but that his doctors would not allow him.

19Hospitalized with gastro-intestinal bleeding in June 2000. Although he received a blood transfusion after the bleeding in his colon was stopped, no surgery was performed.
20He bought several acres of prime real estate in Rancho Mirage, CA, to build a racetrack. He later decided a medical center was needed in the area instead, so he donated the land to build Eisenhower Medical Center, which is now rated as among the top 100 hospitals in America. A medical building on the campus is named for him and contains statues of he and wife Dolores Hope in the lobby. Another medical building next door is called "Hope Square".
21There is a major street in Rancho Mirage, CA, named after him. Bob Hope Drive crosses Frank Sinatra, Gerald Ford, Ginger Rogers and Dinah Shore Drives.
22In November of 1948, when President Harry S. Truman scored his upset presidential election victory, Hope sent him a one-word telegram: "Unpack". Truman was so amused by it he kept it in his desk in the Oval Office.
23He was a staunch supporter of the Republican Party.
24Attended the funeral of his friend of more than 40 years, former President Richard Nixon, on April 27, 1994.
25Inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1983.
26On his wartime USO tours he had one ironclad rule that he insisted his fellow performers follow: under no circumstances were they allowed to cry when visiting wounded soldiers in military hospitals. This was often difficult given the amount of suffering they saw, but he told his performers that it was their duty to always smile and provide laughs and good cheer for the troops. According to Hope, he broke his own rule only once. While visiting an army hospital in Italy in 1943, he stopped at the bedside of a wounded soldier who had been in a coma for two months. The soldier suddenly opened his eyes and said, "Hey, Bob Hope! When did you get here?" He had to leave the hospital room to keep the troops from seeing his tears, but he returned a few hours later to present the soldier with his Purple Heart medal.
27He and best friend Bing Crosby were planning to make one last "road" picture in early 1977, but Bing died before filming. Bob was so broken up about Bing's death that he couldn't sleep for days on end. He stated that it was one of the worst times of his life and that his wife was his rock who got him through the tough time.
28Was briefly a professional boxer. He fought under the name Packy East.
29As a young comedian, he won a Charles Chaplin look-alike contest in Cleveland.

31Hosted the Academy Awards in 1939, 1940, 1943, 1945 (alongside John Cromwell), 1946 (alongside James Stewart), 1953 (alongside Conrad Nagel), 1955 (alongside Thelma Ritter), 1958 (alongside James Stewart, David Niven, Jack Lemmon, Rosalind Russell and "Donald Duck"), 1959 (alongside Jerry Lewis, David Niven, Laurence Olivier, Mort Sahl and Tony Randall), 1960, 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1975 (alongside Sammy Davis Jr., Shirley MacLaine and Frank Sinatra) and finally in 1978.
32He was one of the richest movie stars, ranking in the top ten highest salaried stars continuously from 1941-53 [except for 1948].
33Awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Lyndon Johnson on his last day in office, January 20, 1969.
34Awarded a Congressional Gold Medal by President John F. Kennedy at the White House on September 11, 1963. Only two other entertainers--George M. Cohan and Irving Berlin--were similarly honored.
35He is among the select few non-band members who have had the honor of dotting the "i" during The Ohio State University Marching Band's 'Script Ohio' routine. This is considered the greatest honor the band can bestow to any non-band person and is an extremely special (and rare) event.
36At 69 years, his marriage to Dolores Hope held the record for the longest Hollywood marriage when he passed away in 2003. It has since been passed by the marriage of Art Linkletter to Lois Foerster. They were married November 25, 1935.
37Was a supporter of Valley Forge Military Academy & Junior College in Wayne, PA. He has the "Bob Hope Five-Star Award for Distinguished Service to the United States of America" named in his honor.

While on tour with Hurley, Durbin ate a piece of tainted coconut custard pie and died a few days later. Dancer George Byrne replaced him.
49Was incorrectly declared dead several times since retiring from the public eye. On the most infamous occasion in 1998, a wire service accidentally posted a pre-written obituary to a Web page. A member of the US House of Representatives saw this bogus news flash and announced Hope's death during a session at the Capitol. Hope learned he was dead when a reporter called his home asking for a statement. According to family members, Hope took this mistake in good humor.
50He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1990.

56Appointed an honorary CBE in 1976.

58He changed his name from Leslie to Bob, because in school they would call the roll as 'Hope, Leslie' and classmates shortened it to hopeless.

72In 1959 he was awarded the Emmy Trustees' Award "for bringing the great gift of laughter to all peoples of all nations; for selflessly entertaining American troops throughout the world over many years; and for making TV finer by these deeds and by the consistently high quality of his TV programs through the years".

#Quote
1When vaudeville died, television was the box they put it in.
2[About his arrival in Hollywood in 1937] At last Paramount could no longer ignore the inevitable, and I was brought to Hollywood with great fanfare. A man in a red cap met me at the station and showed me to the nearest streetcar.
3If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play at it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf.
4[Richard Nixon] lives here in Whittier, California. They're so sure he's going to be President they're building the log cabin he was born in.
5A few months ago [John F. Kennedy]'s mother said, "You have a choice. Do you want to go to camp this year or run for President?"..
6[Dwight D. Eisenhower] admitted that the budget can't be balanced, and [Joseph McCarthy] said the Communists are taking over. You don't know what to worry about these days--whether the country will be overthrown or overdrawn.
7I have it on good authority that [Joseph McCarthy] McCarthy is going to disclose the names of two million Communists. He has just got his hands on the Moscow telephone directory.
8[on turning 70]I still chase women, but only downhill.
9[on turning 80] It's the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing.
10[on turning 100] I don't feel old. In fact, I don't feel anything until noon. Then it's time for my nap.
11[on growing up in poverty] Four of us slept in one bed. When it got cold mother threw on another brother.
12[on having six brothers] That's how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.
13When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things--not the great occasions--give off the greatest glow of happiness.
14I led such a sheltered life I didn't go out with girls until I was almost four.
15[At a USO show, 1943] Were the soldiers at the last camp happy to see me! They actually got down on their knees. What a spectacle! What a tribute! What a crap game!
16[on hosting the Oscars, when [The Godfather: Part II (1974) was in nomination] Neither Mr. Price nor Mr. Waterhouse has been heard from for days. I'm wearing a tuxedo with a bullet-proof cummerbund. Who knows what will happen if Al Pacino doesn't win?
17[Jokingly, referring to his wife's singing "Silent Night' to troops in Vietnam] The last thing these guys needed was sentiment. Dolores became their mother. What they needed was Raquel Welch.
18Pictures have been really wild this year, haven't they? Oscar has been more naked than usual. They're doing things on the screen today I wouldn't do in bed--even if I had the chance.
19[Hosting the Oscars, 1967] I will not seek nor will I accept an Oscar. Actually, I have a deal with the Academy. They'll negotiate if I stop bombing.
20Leaving [Richard Burton] alone in Paris is like leaving Jackie Gleason locked in a delicatessen.
21Today's ballroom dances like the swim, the frug, the chicken and the monkey are really nervous disorders set to music.
22I can't drink like [Lee Marvin], grunt like [Rod Steiger], enunciate like [Laurence Olivier]. And when it comes to [Richard Burton], I'm really in trouble.
23[on Grauman's Chinese Theater] The is the first time I knew this was a theater. I always thought it was the place where [Darryl F. Zanuck] sent his laundry.
24[on Samuel Goldwyn, while Hope and co-star Bing Crosby were shooting Road to Morocco (1942)] Dave [director David Butler] ordered the assistant director to station the phone for "The Road to Morocco" a block and a half away from the set where we were working [to discourage Hope and Crosby from spending so much time on the phone and holding up production]. Not only that, the telephone was installed under a pile of lumber so that anyone answering it would have to slide horizontally to pick up the receiver. That worked well until the day that Sam Goldwyn called. David Butler trudged across the soundstage and into the next one and slid under the lumber pile. "Hello, Sam, what is it?" Dave said. Goldwyn was working on the script that Dave was to direct next . . . For fifteen minutes Goldwyn expounded on the intricacies of the story while "The Road to Morocco" company waited. Finally Goldwyn said, "Thanks very much for calling me" and hung up.
25[on MGM chief Louis B. Mayer] Louis B. Mayer came out west with $28.00, a box camera and an old lion. He built a monument to himself-- the Bank of America.
26[on Jack Benny] He didn't just stand on the stage. He owned it.
27[when asked why he didn't run for President of the United States] I thought about it. But my wife said she wouldn't want to move into a smaller house.
28[on Dorothy Lamour] Dottie was fearless. She stands there before the camera and ad libs with Bing Crosby and me, fully knowing the way the script's written, she'll come up second or third best.
29[on Bing Crosby] A lot of people think that Bing was a loner, but Bing was a very loyal friend.
30[on Katharine Hepburn] This dame is terrific--and expert in her craft and so electrifying on set that if you don't watch out, you're likely to wind up as part of the scenery.
31[on Jane Russell] Don't let her fool you. Tangle with her and she'll shingle your attic.
32I do benefits for ALL religions. I'd hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.
33I was lucky, you know, I always had a beautiful girl and the money was good. Although I would have done the whole thing over for, oh, perhaps half.
34[referring to both the film release of "Mommie Dearest" (Mommie Dearest (1981)), the biography of Joan Crawford written by her daughter Christina Crawford, and the equally scathing book about Bette Davis, written by her daughter] Now I know why tigers eat their young.
35[on Vincent Price] He always loved a good joke. Moreover, he was kind enough to laugh at jokes that weren't so good.
36People who throw kisses are hopelessly lazy.
37They said I was worth $500 million. If I was worth that much, I wouldn't have visited Vietnam, I'd have sent for it.
38[referring to Macaulay Culkin] That kid's getting $5 million for his next picture. For this we need child labor laws?
39[1991] Remember, you kids, always pay to get into the movies; the Japanese need the money.
40[In reference to the Academy Awards] It's wonderful to be here in person. I couldn't be here in spirit, so I'm here in person.
41I love Oscar, that little bald head. I didn't know Sinéad O'Connor had children!
42Personally, I never drink on Oscar nights, as it interferes with my suffering.
43[In reference to Macaulay Culkin] I remember when they handed out the Oscars in 1927; I was Home Alone, too!
44[At the Academy Awards] To all you losers, remember there's a bright side to all of this: you can still run for Governor.
45[1991] Remember me? The Macaulay Culkin of 1927.
46[at the 50th Anniversary Academy Awards, referring to Oscar Winners Tribute Sequence] They've all got their Oscars. But are they happy?
47[referring to the Academy Awards ceremonies] Welcome to "You Bet Your Career."
48[At the Academy Awards] We're all here to celebrate Oscar--or as he's known at my house, The Fugitive!
49I've never wanted an Oscar, although they are reassuring to an actor who doesn't know how really great he is.
50[referring to the Academy Awards ceremonies] Tonight we set aside petty differences, forget old feuds and start new ones.
51Welcome to the Academy Awards--or as it's known at my house, Passover.
52Bing Crosby and I weren't the types to go around kissing each other. We always had a light jab for each other. One of our stock lines used to be, "There's nothing I wouldn't do for Bing, and there's nothing he wouldn't do for me. And that's the way we go through life--doing nothing for each other!"
53I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.
54[When asked by his wife where he wanted to be buried] Surprise me.
55[at the height of the Cold War] We had a very successful trip to Russia. We made it back.
56[on his 100th birthday] I'm so old, they've canceled my blood type.
57You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
58Golf is my real profession--show business pays my greens fees.
59[on being told he was being awarded an honorary knighthood] What an honor and what a surprise for a boy born in England, raised in Cleveland and schooled in vaudeville.
