Thanks for the Memory is a 1938 film starring Bob Hope and Shirley Ross, and directed by George Archainbaud. The title is from the song that later became Hope's theme, which first appeared in The Big Broadcast of 1938 earlier the same year. The movie plot dealt with an out of work writer who stays home and plays house husband while his wife goes to work for her former fiancé.
