ROAD TO BOX OFFICE: THE SEVEN FILM COMEDIES OF BING CROSBY, BOB HOPE AND DOROTHY LAMOUR, 1940-1962 by Randall G. Mielke
Starting with Road to Singapore in 1940, Paramount Pictures teamed Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and Dorothy Lamour to star in one of the most successful series of movies ever made.
All seven "road" films followed the same basic format: adventurers Hope and Crosby would be caught in a seemingly impossible situation, they would defeat the bad guys, and then vie with one another for Lamour's attention. A few ballads, duets, and comedy numbers were added for musical flavor and it all worked to perfection.
This book is a fond look back on three screen stars, all with successful careers of their own, who traveled seven "roads" together and left audiences with miles of movie memories.
