Son of Paleface ★★★ ½ 1952

Hilarious sequel to the original Hope gagfest, with the Harvard-educated son of the original character (again played by Hope) heading west to claim an inheritance. Hope runs away with every cowboy cliche and even manages to wind up with the girl. Songs include “Buttons and Bows” (reprised from the original), “There's a Cloud in My Valley of Sunshine,” and “Four-legged Friend.” 95m/C VHS, DVD . Bob Hope, Jane Russell, Roy Rogers, Douglass Dumbrille, Iron Eyes Cody, Bill Williams, Harry von Zell; D: Frank Tashlin; W: Frank Tashlin, Joseph Quillan, Robert L. Welch; C: Harry Wild.
