Bob Hope: Entertainer of the Century by Richard Zoglin

“On screen, they had the perfect combination of camaraderie and tension.  Crosby was the schemer, Hope the patsy; Crosby the cool customer, Hope the nervous Nellie; Crosby the suave ladies’ man, Hope the overeager wannabe. As performers, they were so in sync with each other that their dialogue often sounded ad-libbed, and you felt you were watching the real Hope and Crosby, not two made-up characters. Off-stage they weren’t close friends, but on a movie screen or on the stage, they brought out the best in each other.”
– Richard Zoglin (Excerpt from Exclusive Interview with Classic Movie Hub, read more here)

    I remember seeing Bob Hope on television with Lucille Ball although I wasn’t aware that they had done films together till I looked it up. They seemed to really enjoy working together and were very funny together, of course.
