Don't know how many caught this flic on TCM last week, but it made me drool for the complete '61 FL line
driven by the movie's stars. Lana's '61 Fury 'vert; Bob's '61 Polara 'vert (in silver, just like the brochure);
the Chrysler 300 ragtop and '61 Imperial sedan. They tear around SoCal's San Fernando Valley in idyllic bliss,
and Hope's scene at the grocery store is all Polara, all over the place! I'm sure it's been discussed before,
but I can't wait to screen it again to get better pics of the cars.
Always for the cars!

I noticed all the cars (300G conv) but was constantly distracted by the unhappy wifes backside and Bob Hope's borderline gay obliviousness to it.

I saw the movie as well last week, first saw it back in the 80s. Bob Hope always had Chrysler Corp. as a sponsor when he had his specials on TV - did anyone notice if Chrysler Corp was in the movie credits for this? Typically it would read "Automobiles Furnished by Chrysler Corporation" or something to that effect.

Bob Hope was given a new Chrysler to drive every year -- he must have made a promotional agreement in the 50's. In the early 1990's, I saw Bob and his wife, Dolores, at a local record store. I even held the door open for them , to which Bob responded in his unique voice, "Thank you, young man."

We left about the same time. Dolores was helping Bob into a new, white Chrysler New Yorker.

Cool story, Aaron. - Bob would have been around 90 then - did he have a driver or was he or Dolores driving?

Didn't Bob Hope host the "bob Hope presents the Chrysler Theatre " on TV?

He was a great guy and did a lot for the troops in war zones for Morale in many military confilicts. Great American and long time Mopar guy!

Dolores was driving. She was taking care of him...he was frail. You could tell how much she loved him.
