Bob Hope Lived Here

Ahhh, to be in Bob Hope paradise. Many now wouldn't even know who he was, answering "Bob who?"

Others consider him to be an entertainment legend. He entertained troops, spelled out one liners and acted in movies and on television.

He died as a hundred-year-old man.

Hope built the home pictured above in 1979, a modernistic, multimillion dollar estate.
It has a "turtle-shell" roof designed by John Lautner that looks like a flying saucer.

And, yes, in Palm Springs, there's a Bob Hope Drive which takes you from Interstate 10 to "The River" shopping complex on Highway 111.
