Bob Hope Christmas Special (1964)

Bob Hope spends December touring East Asia, finishing with a Christmas in Vietnam, where things were already pretty grim. This is pretty solid early-middle Bob Hope. He wasn't young and hungry, but he still hadn't given up on being funny like in the 70s, and he was decades away from this trainwreck. Great music, great as a piece of history, the jokes are not bad.
