Product Overview

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!
