Bob Hope Had The Moves

Bob Hope was an entertainer from the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s and 1980’s. Most people think of Bob Hope hosting celebrity roasts, golfing and telling lame jokes. But old Bob could really dance.

The Seven Little Foys is a Technicolor in VistaVision 1955 comedy film directed by Melville Shavelson starring Bob Hope as Eddie Foy. One highlight of the film is an energetic tabletop dance showdown sequence with Bob Hope as Eddie Foy and James Cagney as George M. Cohan (reprising his role from Yankee Doodle Dandy). The story of Eddie Foy Sr. and the Seven Little Foys inspired a TV version in 1964 and a stage musical version, which premiered in 2007.
