A revealing biography of the driven Bob Hope with plenty of dirt dished on his miserliness, womanizing, and other bad habits underlying his patriotism, workaholism, generosity,and a successful trifecta of movies, radio, and television...and I'm skipping vaudeville. The anecdotes are attributed, often to writers, actresses, and others, by name, even the author's father, Groucho Marx, who described a show that went hilariously off the rails with script thrown to the floor producing a show that had to be severely edited. An entertaining and informative book.
