The Facts of Life 1960 Lucille Ball Bob Hope Drama Romance
Stars: Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Ruth Hussey
Facts of Life Story Line. Larry and Kitty are two middle-class suburbanites who find themselves growing bored with their lives and respective marriages. Although each always found the other grating in manner, they find themselves falling in love when thrown together without their spouses on a vacation. After returning home, they try to break things off, but always seem to grow closer. A holiday together will finally settle whether they should end their marriages.
Bob Hope was the surprise in the movie. He doesn’t have a chance for uttering his one liners, as the script doesn’t allow it. Lucille Ball was an excellent comedienne, and she shows it on this film.
The film is light and will charm anyone wanting to spend some time in the company of some of America’s best comic talent of the past.
The film, directed by Melvin Frank, shows two stars that endeared themselves to the American public at their best. This is very aware for its time and has some wonderful period scenes. Hope and Ball seem to have very complementary comedy styles which play extremely well off each other.

You may also enjoy the Paleface and Son of Paleface set, both starring Bob Hope. Until Blazing Saddles came out The Paleface was probably the most successful parody of westerns ever released. Bob Hope is hilarious as the unlikely hero.
For another popular female star of the great classics, consider Shirley Booth in About Mrs. Leslie.
