Mickey: Let's call it off.

Leslie Townes "Bob" Hope KBE (May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was a British-born American comedian and actor who appeared in vaudeville, films, television and radio. He also hosted the Academy Awards Ceremonies 18 times, and toured for the USO to entertain U.S. military troops in multiple wars, from World War II to The Gulf War; in 1996 he was declared the "first and only honorary veteran of the U.S. armed forces" by Congress.

His best-known films are the Road to ... series, in which he co-starred with Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, and the Film Noir parody My Favorite Brunette, also with Lamour. For many years his stand-up material was written by his good friend Bob Monkhouse, a stand-up comedian in his own right.
