... because nothing screams American youth in 1979 like Bob Hope, George Burns, Dinah Shore, and Les Brown & His Band of Renown.

 

Presenting... the first (and only) American Youth Awards!

 

Our gal comes out at 2:10 in Part 2.

 

Pt. 1:

Pt. 2, in which Lucy, Bob, and gymnast Kurt Thomas reminisce about a non-existent episode of I Love Lucy* which Bob apparently remembers quite well:

(*I don't imagine the Westinghouse tour of Desilu had much air play in 1979)

 

This is the most awkward "youth" awards show I have ever seen. An Evelyn Keyes joke? *ZING!*

I can find NO REFERENCE to this show...anywhere; well, at least in those sites I frequent for information: wikipedia and IMDb....any suggestions? I want to make sure I have all stars to add to their birth, and possibly, death, bios for the chronology. Thanks for whomever can assist....JK

 

Couldn't find it on IMDB either Joyce but with a little "googling", found this listed by a source with which I'm unfamiliar nor do I have any idea the accuracy of what's listed therein, but perhaps its a start. If this site is accurate at all, it looks to be a WUNDAFUL source of appearances for our many beloved performers, especially those who appeared on countless variety shows such as Hope's over the years!

OMG, don't even remember ever seeing that one, i'm sure i did but like Taylor said, Hope's shows were never that memorable, unless Lucy aws on and i agree, she looked absolutely sensational.
