For years, I've believed in destinies fulfilled and lives transformed. I've believed in love at first sight, in Fate, in Second Acts, and in the happiness of the sum of all life's parts. I've believed in second chances and in beatitudes and in the sheer gumption of belief itself. I've believed in art, in music, in stories, and in the very fact that we are more than we are told. I've believed in love, in art, and in myself. I'm not sure I believed in God until the day I met you. I certainly didn't expect to love you -- I only hoped to marry you. And I certainly didn't understand why you loved me -- not right at first. You gave me the perfect opportunity to understand. To better understand all these other inexplicable emotions. Why we fall in love; why it lasts; and why it matters.
While there are 7.7 billion people on the planet, there are only a few million who heard the legendary song, "You don't have to hide your face," in the movie "Pricilla, Princess of France." Bob Hope, one of the central characters of the story, was the one who often sang this song with Hope Hot Stuff. But he had done the song plenty of times in the past. It was Michael Jackson who wrote the song and Desirée, one of the film's production troupe members, who sang it in the movie. But it was the mega star, Hope, who had the notoriety and reputation. Hope, who died 82 years old in 2003, was a famous comedian in the past and he was also a well-known singer, actor, and writer and was the one who did this classic song. So, Hope alone, sang and danced this song in the movie and the movie's movie's slogan helped raise the popularity of the song. Hope, who sang and danced in the movie was one of the studios' big hit makers and the movie's release was on May 8, 1955 and this movie was supposed to be Hope's, chef d'oeuvre, his best movie so far in his career. Hope's movie, Pricilla, Princess of France, was a flop in his career but it became the only Hope movie that he was actually paid $1Million plus the rights to write and record the song. d2c66b5586
