the First Moon Landing and 1969
(Above):This is a Bob Hope
Show salute to Neil Armstrong after the first moon landing in
1969. Its rare to find a gem from any Bob Hope Show
broadcast. They're all eventually challenged by Bob Hope

efforts of American's 20th Century Comedian. This one, it appears
has not yet been discovered by Bob Hope Enterprises....enjoy while you
