Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono, Spanish Dolby Digital mono; radio broadcast shows; photo galleries; DVD-ROM content.

My Favorite Blonde(1942) VHS

Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono, Spanish Dolby Digital mono; radio broadcast shows; photo gallery; DVD-ROM content.

My Favorite Brunette [DVD](1947) DVD
While looking after his detective neighbor's office, baby photographer Bob Hope's dream of being a private eye lands him on Death Row in this laugh-a-minute spoof.

Standard; Soundtrack: English mono; scene access.

The Paleface [DVD](1948) DVD

Son Of Paleface(1952) VHS
A hilarious vehicle for Bob Hope, who plays "Junior" Potter, the Harvard graduate who ventures out West to claim the inheritance of his frontier "hero" pa. Jane Russell is the saloon-singing object of Hope's affections--and wisecracks, and Roy Rogers and Trigger play themselves. 95 min.
