Contains the Bob Hope classics SORROWFUL JONES and THE PALEFACE on 1 DVD.

SORROWFUL JONES: Bob Hope and Lucille Ball star in this winning comedy based on the Damon Runyon tale about a penny-pinching broadway bookmaker who "inherits" a five-year-old girl.

THE PALEFACE: In one of his most popular roles, Bob Hope plays "Painless" Peter Potter, a timid correspondence school dentist earning a shaky living in the lawless West. When "Painless" is seduced into agreeing to a quickie marriage by the voluptuous Jane Russell, he thinks his luck has changed. Little does he suspect that Russell is actually sharpshooter Calamity Jane, hot on the trail of a dangerous renegade gang and that she is simply using "Painless" as her cover and unwitting dupe!

"[Pale] ...a smash hit in its day and is still regarded as Hope's best film.  Peter Thompson, Encore Australia
"[Pale] ...Bob Hope's crowning achievement.  At-A-Glance Film Reviews

Editor's Note
This double feature of classic Bob Hope comedies includes SORROWFUL JONES, Mr. Hope's 1949 remake of Damon Runyon's classic LITTLE MISS MARKER, and THE PALEFACE, in which he famously plays a cowardly dentist who hides behind the skirts of beautiful Calamity Jane (Jane Russell). See individual titles for details.
