Bob Hope's first feature film was "The Big Broadcast Of 1938" for Paramount, but prior to that Bob made eight short films. Were any of these available on 16mm or 8mm?

Soup For Nuts 1934 (Universal)
Paree, Paree 1934 (Warner Bros)

Sorry, I was going to mention "Taxi Turvey", but then I remembered that it was an early Jack Benny short, not Bob hope.
