It definitely is a year for greats passing, isn’t it? Latest saddening exodus is renowned Bob Hope, who died on Sunday. The comic legend, 100, succumbed to pneumonia at 9:28 p.m. at his home in Toluca Lake, Calif., where he was surrounded by his wife, Dolores, and the rest of his family. One of the most popular comics of his era and a star of some 75 movies, Hope had done it all – vaudeville, stage, radio, movies, television. "What drove him was the audience. He loved the laughter, he loved the welcome that he got from the audience," writer Mort Lachman, who worked for Hope for nearly 30 years in radio, films and TV, told the HR. "It was always all about the show for him — it didn’t matter whether it was radio or TV or pictures. When he walked out onto that stage, he owned it." Our condolences go out to his family.
