Dear Diary,

I heard on the radio today that Bob Hope’s name in “They Got Me Covered” is Robert Kitridge. My, what an original name for Bob – Robert. I don’t know how they ever thought of it. Bob plays a foreign correspondent in Russia who is sent back to Washington because he wasn’t doing a very good job. If Bob Hope does a bad job on anything, it will really be acting be he isn’t made that way.

Mother and I got home from Hughes Springs today at about 3:00. I wanted to wee “The Magnificent Andrew” today, but I got in too late.

Dear Diary,

Mother and I went to East Texas to see Daddy Pat this afternoon. I hated to leave that certain picture of a certain Mr. Bob Hope, but I was afraid something would happen to it down there, so I left it on my desk. I often wonder if, after I’m asleep, he doesn’t come out of that post and lie down. I know I’d get tired if I had to spend years learning on one arm, even if it did just happen to be in a picture.

Mother and I arrived at Hughes Springs at 7:30 this evening. We didn’t start ’til 3:30.

Dear Diary,

Mother and I got home today about four o-clock this afternoon. We really had a swell time, but I’m glad to get home anywho.

Today Hedda Hopper was interviewing a Powers Model who’d trying to get into movies. The girl said, “Miss Hopper, do actresses have the right to choose thir own leading men?” Hedda said, “What’s the matter? You don’t want Bob Hope or Cary Grant already, do you?”

That’s what I call good, when Bob is classed as an outstanding leading man like that. (Well, he is one.)

Dear Diary,

Mother and I started toward Hughes Springs today at about 11:30. I took a magazine with me to read in the car. It had an article in it written by Buddy deSylva, who wrote “Louisiana Purchase,” Bob Hope’s new picture. He told all about the basic changes in the stage play and the picture. He said the biggest change was the climax of the story, and that that scene would be the best, and funniest, thing Bob Hope has done in pictures to date. I sure hope he’s right.
