How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Ronnie’s pretense about being a detective starts to get him in trouble when he meets up with the thugs. How can misrepresenting yourself lead to problems? How did his career as a photographer prove to be more helpful than he expected?

In addition to the use of color, what other cinematic changes did you note in this film compared to comedies made today? How has slapstick comedy changed? Was the humor more or less subtle than now?

Bob Hope is 100 years old. To learn more about his life, check bobhope.com.
