Editorial Reviews

Sorrowful Jones Bob Hope teams with Lucille Ball in this memorable story. Sorrowful (Hope) takes a bet from a rotten gambler who leaves his young daughter as collateral. When the bettor doesn't come back, Sorrowful Jones learns some hard lessons about parenthood - whether he wants to or not! Lucille Ball plays nightclub singer Gladys O'Neil in this remake of the 1934 Shirley Temple film Little Miss Marker. The Paleface In one of his most popular roles, Bob Hope plays "Painless" Peter Potter, who is seduced into a quickie marriage by the voluptuous Jane Russell. Little does he suspect that Russell is actually sharpshooter Calamity Jane, hot on the trail of a dangerous renegade gang and simply using "Painless" as her unwitting dupe!

    Like the other discs in the set, this one is a good bargain, and a disc you'll be glad to own.

    These are two of the greatest comedies ever made.

    Here's another disc in the very nicely done Bob Hope Tribute Collection. Again we have trailers and production notes, plus cast and crew bios. Two features for the price of one is always a good deal, and this installment in the set does not disappoint, with two classic Hope pictures, "Sorrowful Jones" and "The Paleface".
    Of the two (believe it or not), "Sorrowful Jones" is the real keeper. "The Paleface" is certainly more famous, and pretty funny in its own right as Bob plays a cowardly correspondance school dentist making his way across the Old West. However, the other feature hits the mark every time, while "The Paleface" tends be a bit uneven.
    On the other hand, "The Paleface" is pure farce, and introduces the song "Buttons and Bows" (sung here by Bob), that became a smash hit for Dinah Shore. Film fans should be on the lookout for an appearance by Iron Eyes Coty, forever famous as the Native American who sheds a tear in that classic environmental awareness ad from the 1970's. Jane "Cross Your Heart Bra" Russell plays Calamity Jane, who marries Bob so she can get a lead on some gun runners. The film spawned a sequel four years later ("Son of Paleface"), and was later remade with Don Knotts as "The Shakiest Gun in the West".
    "The Paleface" is also available as a stand-alone disc in the set, albeit with more bonus features. Frankly, I don't understand why Universal put the film on two discs when one would do, but there it is, anyway.
    "Sorrowful Jones" is the second film version of "Little Miss Marker", a Damon Runyon story. The original film made Shirley Temple a star.

    The Bob Hope Tribute Collection has many of his early films. This disc contains two films, Sorrowful Jones with his first partnering with Lucille Ball and The Paleface with his first partnering with Jane Russell.

    Most people will recognize Sorrowful Jones by the more common name of Little Miss Marker. This is one of the most adapted of Damon Runyon's stories. This is one of the more faithful adaptations.

    Sorrowful (Bob Hope) is a bookie on Broadway. Gladys O'Neill (Lucille Ball) is an old flame who is seeing gangster Big Steve. Big Steve just burned all the bookies with a horse race. But the next race, Dreamy Joe is going to lose. So Sorrowful is taking all book on the race. Sorrowful takes a marker from a gambler who leaves his daughter, Mary Jane, as the marker.

    When the father overhears something he shouldn't, he "disappears". Sorrowful is stuck with Mary Jane. They learn that the father was found in the river and that she is now an orphan.

    The racing commission is investigating the race and Big Steve needs a patsy to run his last Dreamy Joe scam. Sorrowful suggests transferring ownership of Dreamy Joe to the Mary Jane. This starts everything into action.

    Gladys and Sorrowful start to get attached to Mary Jane. But when the police start to piece together what is happening, Big Steve starts to tie up the loose ends. This lands Mary Jane in the hospital with a concussion asking for Dreamy Joe. Sorrowful arranges to steal Dreamy Joe and take him to Mary Jane. Of course, a horse in a hospital is perfect comic fare for Hope.

    As for most Damon Runyon stories, this ends happily in marriage.

    The second feature is The Paleface. Jane Russell plays a beautiful Calamity Jane.

    I primarilly bought this for the paleface as I loved son of paleface. But there is one instance where the sequel is better than the origional. However Sorrowful is a splendid picture and is worth the price alone.

    These two feature films are perfect for the whole family. They are terrific comedies that are well-written and well-acted. They make good entertainment.
    I am amazed at the strong, dominating woman who could out-shoot, out-think and out-maneuver all the men around her, portrayed in a widely released film during the 1940s in Jane Russell's character in "The Paleface". Understandably, the film was a smashing success when it was first released.
    The film "The Paleface" introduced the famous popular standard tune "Buttons & Bows", which Bob Hope sang to Jane Russell, trying to woo her.
    Given the prominence of the actors and their outstanding performances, I recommend this double feature for your permanent film collection.

    Even being a Bob Hope fan, I was still impressed with Sorrowful Jones. The jokes were classic Hope with his perfect timing and delivery, and the acting by all parties involved was excellent. Not cheesy at all. I hadn't heard of this film before and took a chance on it, but now I consider this to be one of Hope's best. The other film in the set is The Paleface. This one is a bit more cheesy than Sorrowful Jones but you still get the same classic Hope delivery. I wasn't impressed with Jane Russel, as she seems to be trying too hard to be "bad." But heck, it's a comedy film and is just supposed to be entertaining, which it is. On the bright side you get the nifty song "Buttons & Bows." This 2-film set is worth your while, as both films are quite good and have extremely funny scenes.
