This is a loving tribute - and about time! - to a beautiful lady who was never given her due. Dorothy Lamour contributed as much to the ROAD movies as Hope and Crosby did. But they are the ones that always get the credit for those very funny films. Lamour more than held her own with them and she looked a helluva a lot better too! She also was associated with more great songs in the over 50 films she appeared in than any other star: MOONLIGHT BECOMES YOU, I REMEMBER YOU, MOON OF MONAKURA, TANGERINE, PERSONALITY, SUNDAY MONDAY OR ALWAYS, THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END,WOULD YOU LIKE TO SWING ON A STAR, the list is endless. Her voice had a quality all her own, like golden molasses. The book doesn't have a discography unfortunately and there are omissions: films such as VARIETY GIRL (1947) in which she sang TALLAHASSEE with Alan Ladd aren't in the filmography. Nor is HERE COMES THE GROOM (1951) (she does a great number on an airplane with Crosby, Cass Daley, Jerry Colonna and Phil Harris in that one). There isn't even a mention of the last ROAD film, THE ROAD TO HONG KONG (1962) which she stole from the much younger Joan Collins. And THE PHYNX (1970) isn't there either. There are mistakes: the stills accompanying DUFFY'S TAVERN (1945) are all from VARIETY GIRL. And the working title of THE BIG HAIRCUT was not for TYPHOON but for WILD HARVEST. But all in all I recommend this book because there are plenty of lovely pictures of Lamour to gaze at and remember how lovely she was. God knows there's no one around like her today!

Verified Purchase
From all that I know 4 out of 5 GI's much preferred Little Dottie Lamour over Betty Grable, Lana Turner, Linda Darnell, or even Loretta Young...(Ann Sheridan was close) she was the sweetest, nicest little girl ever. And not just on the screen. Bill Howard outdid himself with that pick up. This book is full of gorgeous pics and its a must have for any fan. her old Sealtest radio programs are great to listen to also.

This "author" uses unlicensed copyrighted images to create her self-published books. Not only are these books of low quality with poor reprodcution values and insipid text, but such blatant disregard of federal copyright law is ILLEGAL and UNETHICAL!!

The book is full of beautiful photos of Dorothy Lamour -- including photos from her stint as the ultimate sarong girl but also in features that showcased her phenomenal ability as an actress.
