Did You Know?


This programme's main skit is a near replay of the one Bob did on the (Fridgidaire) Comedy Hour in November 1950. Evidently the naive serviceman (pick which service) that gets seduced by the enemy Mata Hari-like spy bit must have been Hope's ready-to-use skit when he played various venues in his USO tours.
