Neil Posted March 21, 2016 Report Share Posted March 21, 2016 I got 2 DVDs of Bob Hope's birthday celebrations in 1978 and 1983 (his 75th and 80th). It's amazing that Hope by this time was considered a national treasure, so much so that his milestone birthdays are celebrated in DC at the Kennedy Center and attended by the then current presidents-- and he's barely remembered today by anyone under 40 (present company excepted). Case in point: I was at the Bob Hope airport and heard a flight attendant ask who Bob Hope was. Lucy appeared on both and sang the same special lyrics to "Hey Look Me (Him) Over". On the 1983, it looks like her own hair and not a wig. Very rare to see her wigless for a tv appearance. I love the look she gives to the conductor at :06 in 1983. Can't quite hear what she says but something like "that's my cue". This being May, Lucy is 66 and 71 respectively. As Billy Hacket said in 1983 "Lucille Desiree, you never sang prettier!"
