: HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB!!! :)
I LOVE the radio and TV appearances that Jack and Bob made together. As I've mentioned here before, although their styles of comedy delivery were very different, they somehow complimented each other...and Bob could really crack Jack up!
One of my favorite bits is when Jack is insisting that Bob Hope owes his success in films to Jack. When Bob asks Jack to explain, Jack says, "You started out at Paramount when I was already making movies there....and if I wasn't so LOUSY, YOU wouldn't have gotten ANYPLACE!"
What a GREAT line!
