Bob and Bing together again for the next "road" picture: "The Road to Heaven".

The best are missed the most.

...and the memories are endless.

Will there ever be another like him? Yes, there are and will be others, but not like him, or Bing, or Jack, or Red, or George. All great comedians that came from the one true American art form... Vaudeville.

They were all comedians and entertainers that could and did make you laugh until you cried. Sometimes they handled material that was suggestive, but NEVER used a dirty word, or mentioned an inappropriate body part, and still could make you laugh until it hurt.

It was B.F.Keith, founder of the Keith-Albee vaudeville circuit that made vaudeville a family entertainment. He refused to allow any off color acts to appear at his theatres which included the famous Palace on Times Square in New York. In addition to advance warnings about unacceptable material, all acts were reviewed by the house manager during the first performance and if anything unacceptable was presented the act would find a "blue card" in their dressing room mailbox, which informed them that they were removed from the program and would not be booked into any Keith-Albee theatre again.

From these origins came the Hopes, Crosbys, Benny's, Buttons & Skeltons, and Burns and so many more. They did so much to make Americans feel good through so many different and difficult times... and good times too.

I miss them all, and yearn for the times when we couldn't wait to tune in to their specials on TV. The specials are gone, their kind of material is gone, that part of American history is gone... but their memories will live with us forever.

Yes indeed... thanks for the memories.

Fortunately, their work is NOT all gone. Much of it has been preserved on film.
You can still enjoy a performance filmed 70 years ago. Unfortunately, what IS forever lost is some of the early days of television, unless the show was recorded on film like "I Love Lucy".

Hope had some 7 million jokes saved in 2 vaults!

I use his intro.. "It's greast to be here in (New York City) gateway to Secaucus" Insert your towns.

He was a sweet heart. I heard they booed him once in Vietnam and felt bad that he was treated badly but probably just did not undertstand their pain.

Love you Bob!
