Bob Hope.

Bob Hope, widely heralded as a comedian and for his devotion to entertaining U.S. troops who were far from home, was, like many entertainers of his generation, first a song and dance man. He is best remembered now for his work in film comedies, especially those with his sidekick, crooner Bing Crosby, in the Road to ... series where you might see him soft-shoeing or congo-ing with a fruitbasket headdress. Hope's death at 100 on July 27, 2003 was widely reported in the consumer press. But you will surely hear his voice each holiday season on original recordings of a now-standard "Silver Bells," and his iconic theme, "Thanks for the Memories."
