    • TRIVIA (1)

      • It was during this USO tour that Bob became ill. Medical examinations said it was exhaustion. Bob continued with the tour but suffered severe dizzy spells. Hope wondered if the fall he had taken on his head at Keflavik in December of 1955 or the frozen prop bottle rap on his head by Ginger Rogers during the previous USO trip may have caused more damage than originally thought. Upon arrival in Hollywood, Dolores arranged for Bob to be thoroughly checked out. Dr. Maurice Beigelman in Beverly Hills diagnosed a blood clot in the vein of Bob Hope's left cornea as the culprit behind his dizzy spells and head pain. It would be several years later that Bob would finally undergo surgery.
