Where There’s Life (Paramount 1947, Bob Hope, William Bendix)



Bob Hope antics as a disk jockey about to be married who learns he is heir to the throne of a kingdom in the throes of a revolution. Hope throws off the one-liners while avoiding revolutionaries, and Bendix is his intended’s brother.

Where There’s Life is the final feature film for comedian and vaudeville star Roy Atwell, who is best remembered as the voice of Doc in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
