Wall Street’s Gift to Broadway, and the Kansas City Sweet Thing
From 1941 through 1945 the boys of the U.S. were fighting in World War 2 in Europe and in the Pacific Islands. Bob Hope and Frances Langford became famous entertaining those troops with his comedy, and her beauty and singing voice. Bob Hope’s trademark was “Thanks for the Memories,” and Frances Langford’s theme song was “I’m in the mood for Love.”
On one trip into the war-torn countryside Bob Hope and Frances Langford were riding in a jeep on a lonely road heading for a show for the fighting boys. Suddenly an enemy airplane zoomed down out of the sky with machine guns blazing. As the jeep screeched to a halt, Bob and Frances jumped out of the jeep and dived face first into the ditch beside the road. Fortunately for us, the bullets did not find their mark, and the duo climbed back into the jeep and went to the army camp to perform for the troops.
Bob Hope claimed that the biggest laugh he ever heard during a performance for the troops did not come from one of his jokes, but from a response to Frances Langford. They were beginning a performance for Marines on a remote South Seas Island. Miss Frances Langford began singing the first line of her theme song, “I’m in the mood for love,” but before she could begin the second line, an enthusiastic Marine shouted out, “You’ve come to the right place, Honey!”
In this Broadway adventure Frances Langford is Joan Terry, a farm girl from Kansas City who thinks that she might have a chance at fame and fortune on Broadway, but after several months of futile searching for someone, anyone to hire her, it looks like the beautiful songstress from Kansas City will be returning to the mid-west and her stuffy boyfriend. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
