Where There's Life is a 1947 comedy film.[1][2] The film's title derives from a line in Don Quixote ("Where there's life, there's hope", a play on the name of its star, Bob Hope).


Hope plays American radio announcer who finds out he is the new king of "Barovia", although a secret society called the Mordia, which assassinated the previous ruler, has other ideas.
