Video: Bob Hope and Jimmy Cagney Dancing

Written by Gary North on August 26, 2014

Hope was probably 52 when this was filmed. Cagney was 56. They were middle-aged men.

This is from The Seven Little Foys (1955). I saw it in a theater. I paid. It was money well spent. (No, I did not ask a girl. When you are 13, and you like this sort of thing, you are a pariah.)

    What a wonderful video!!!!! LOVED it!!!! So nice to see something so positive and wholesome and not political. I needed a break from all the doom and gloom, and, Gary, this is just what the doctor ordered. Many kind thanks!!!!!

  8. THESE WERE INTERTAINERS. tHEIR KIND DO NOT EXIST ANYMORE.. THOSE OF US WHO GREW UP DURING THEIR GENERATION WERE THE FORTUNATE GENERATION AS THOSE TYPE DO NOT EXIST TODAY. These were just the tip of the Iceberg, as a multitude of real intertainer existed along with them, and we of my generation were lucky enough to exist at that time frame. I curently am living in my ninth decade. And oh yes; unlike those in Holywood today, they were loyal Americans and real Patriots.

    Amen to all the previous comments…..we were born in 1935 and 1937 and have always been so thankful and happy that we had the 40's and 50's to remember….and miss…. But the early 1980's contributed a stellar movie to cherish and we are renting it this week….Chariots of Fire….Best Picture in 1982, I believe….Y'all come over !! C and T

  10. The movie was actually "Yankee Doodle Dandy" about the life of George M Cohan.
