Black cover blurb:

 

BOB HOPE SPEAKING

On fog in ENGLAND: "I saw a light in the distance. Slowly it became clearer and clearer and finally i could make it out. It was the end of my cigarette."

On Guantanamo in CUBA: "It's the only base in the world where the guards don't say, Friend or Foe? They just reach out and feel your chin."

On PARIS: "it's very frustrating making a picture here. We work hard all day to get a love scene just right. Then on the way home, I see couples on every street corner doing it better."

On MOSCOW: "I got a wonderful welcome at the airport. Thay fired twenty-one shots in the air in my honour. It would have been nicer if they'd waited for the plane to land."

MADRID, KOREA, BERLIN, TOKYO, HOLLYWOOD...all the worlds a stage for this non-stop joker. He had a few humble friends with him as well: JAYNE MANSFIELD, FRANK SINATRA ("my favourite three iron"), ZSA ZSA GABOR, WILLIAM HOLDEN, ANITA EKBERG and 'that 58 year-old beatnik, "BING something-or-other..."
