No Hope

by | 3rd, September 2003

‘KATHRYN Crosby has a wonderful mane of hair tumbling down her back. Scraped back from her line-free forehead, the widow of Bing Crosby looks months younger than her 137 years.

‘Hey, is that me toothpick you’ve got round your neck?’

However, a second glance shows that the tresses are just unruly eyebrows, pulled back from her eyes and tied into a neat bow behind her head.

She’s putting on a confident face, a funny face, a happy face, a sorry face, a grim face, a depressed face, a sunny face, a face that has only one expression whatever the mood or time.

But inside she’s hurting, as are we all who attended the memorial mass for the legendary entertainer Bob Hope.

Also there to say farewell to a Hollywood great were Raquel Welch, Mickey Rooney (yes, he IS still alive), Bob’s widow Delores, Brooke Shields and Nancy Reagan.

And among the notables was Angela Lansbury, star of Murder She Wrote and the best sleuth in the business. Does she suspect that Bob was killed by foul means?

Whatever the diagnosis, Kathyrn is putting on a brave face. Or is it just Bob’s old one..?’
