Description

Paleface and Son of Paleface DVD Set Bob Hope Jane Russell Comedy Family Western

Stars of The Paleface: Bob Hope, Jane Russell, Robert Armstrong

Someone is selling guns to the Indians and in order to find the culprit Calamity Jane and a secret agent go undercover posing as man and wife. When the agent is killed Jane recruits a new husband — none other than innocent dupe “Painless” Peter Potter, a totally inept dentist and confirmed coward who’s main goal is to leave the barbaric west far behind. When their wagon train is attacked by the Indians it’s Jane’s sharpshooting that saves the day, but she gives the credit to Potter making him an instant hero to the townspeople and instant target to both the Indians and the gunrunners.

Until Blazing Saddles came out some 25 years later, The Paleface was probably the most successful parody of westerns ever released. Bob Hope is hilarious as the unlikely hero “Painless” Peter Potter and Jane Russel shows a great flare for comedy as Calamity Jane.

Son of Paleface DVD 1952 Bob Hope Jane Russell

Stars: Bob Hope, Jane Russell, Roy Rogers

Video Sample from Son of Paleface

Junior Potter returns to claim his father’s gold, which is nowhere to be found. “Mike” is the luscious head of a gang of thieves, and Roy Barton is the federal marshal hot on her trail.

The original “Paleface” feature was pretty good, but this sequel is actually better, in large part due to the addition of Roy Rogers and Trigger. Rogers and Bob Hope are two of the most likable performers that the movies have seen, and together they seem like old friends who have stopped by for an enjoyable visit. Jane Russell is also back from the original movie, though in a different role.

The story is good fun as long as you don’t take it seriously. It’s actually rather well-written, in that it accommodates all three stars with material well-suited for them. Hope gets plenty of one-liners and similar gags, and he pulls off even the goofiest of them with energy and aplomb. Rogers gets the chance to do some singing and to have some action sequences, and Trigger gets several good moments. Russell is given a character that allows her to stay within the role of the tough, glowering beauty.
