In the video below, Bob Hope and Shirley Ross sing “Thanks For The Memory” from the film The Big Broadcast of 1938. This wonderfully emotional song deservedly won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1938.
Thanks for the Memories became Bob Hope’s theme song, one he used it for the rest of his career.
I love this duet so much. It makes me want to see the movie again. I haven’t seen it in over 10 years – it’s definitely time for a rewatch!
