The Bob Hope Holiday Special, December 1967

The Holidaze:

There are lots of ways to remember and celebrate the holidays, but perhaps one of the most powerful–and poignant–is to go back and take a look at the Christmas/Holiday shows that legendary entertainer Bob Hope put on for U.S. Troops stationed abroad in war zones. Hope was famous for these shows and performed for the troops from World War II to the Persian Gulf War, a period of over 50 years. Here is one Hope’s shows–his Bob Hope Christmas Special from 1967–fresh out of the vault. A very good way to spend some time on Christmas Day.
