At 100 years old that's amazing - he was such a huge personality in Hollywood - I'm sure we'll see many tributes.

I remember watching all his old movies as a kid - loved them.

I can't believe that he is gone. I can't imagine the tributes and television specials that are all probably ready to go. He was an international treasure. I don't know what else to say, other than I am glad to have lived in a world where he existed.

My prayers go out to his family and friends. He was a real treasure. Thank you for all the laughs and caring about our troops!

Wow he truly was a great guy.

I can't belive his passed on, I guess its for the better.

Keep it funny man.

Saw a great tribute to him and his work for the USO this morning on the Today Show.

Truly a great American...

Sad indeed :( BBC News Article (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/showbiz/3103751.stm). (I never knew he was born in London until now.)

That is a shame, he was a "true" star and apparently a very generous and kind man. He will be missed by many.

It was great that the networks devoted at least an hour in tribute to Bob Hope. I don't think that his record of 8 decades in show business will be repeated. He managed to use every available medium to make people laugh. As a entertainer he has managed to win more awards that anyone else in history, and from what I've heard more are planned.
