Comedian Bob Hope (1903-2003) was the kind of guy you don't see much anymore, at least not in the entertainment business. An comedic legend, he began his career in vaudeville and eventually became a movie star. After retiring from feature films, Hope became familiar to generations of Americans for his numerous TV specials on NBC, and as an ambassador of goodwill, entertaining US military troops overseas. Always the epitome of class, Hope was also known for his trademark nose, and his love of golf.

This four disc set contains a selection of Hope's TV specials from the 1970's up through the 1990's, and will probably be most appreciated by those at least age thirty and above. Those familiar with this particular period of time, will probably recognize many familiar and forgotten faces, among the dozens of guest stars and celebrities featured. If you are not aware of world history, many of the jokes based on current events at the time, with be a mystery to you, but for those in the appropriate age range, much of this is material is pure nostalgia gold.

Disc One contains Volumes 1 and 2 of "50 Years Of Laughter" a retrospective of Bob Hope's 25 years of doing TV specials on NBC. Covering 25 years in a couple of hours is a tough job. Some of the clips are quite brief, and the image quality isn't always the greatest, but it's a pretty nice trip down memory lane. The two parts total about 102 minutes.

Disc Two is perhaps the best in the collection. First up is "The Bob Hope Christmas Special" (64 minutes) a terrific feature from 1970, narrated by Hope, that follows Bob and his brave group of entertainers, as they tour Southeast Asia entertaining US troops at various military bases.

Bob Hope's television specials were a fixture in American entertainment for almost 50 years. This DVD set features all the highlights - many terrific guests - and decades of Bob's famous quips. A must-have for fans of classic television.

My friend is fighting cancer and has fond memories of all of the Bob Hope shows. She's been watching these to keep her spirits up and her depression at bay. Bob is certainly an expert in both of these areas. She loves it.

This is a Chrsitmas gift, for my Grandfather who is going to be 91 in about a week. I remember watching Bob Hope on TV with my Grandparents when I was little, they loved him. Hopefully he'll love this set. Can't wait to see it myself!

Bob Hope is one of those timeless comedians that you can watch over and over again. These bring back such great memories of a time where we could laugh at good clean humor. All generations would love this DVD.

Great footage from Vietnam! Great for all Bob Hope fans - the funniest comedian ever! Got it for a Korean / Vietnam War vet who actually knew him.

This DVD was disappointing. The material is nowhere near Bob's best. Save your money and watch one of his better movies instead.
