Entertainer of the CenturyLarge Print - 2015
In his lifetime, Bob Hope was the only entertainer to achieve top-rated success in every major mass-entertainment medium. A household name, he virtually invented stand-up comedy. Hope is a celebration of an entertainer whose vast contribution has never been properly appreciated, and a complex portrait of a gifted but flawed man who truly loved being famous, appreciated its responsibilities, and handled celebrity with extraordinary grace.
