Episode Summary

November 16, 1966

Bob Hope's guests for an hour of music and comedy are: Bing Crosby; 23-year-old Vietnamese singer and Miss Vietnam, Bach Yen (aka White Sparrow); and a group of rising Hollywood starlets billed as "The New Faces of Hollywood" — among them: Donna Danton, Marilyn Devon, Marianne Gordon, Melodie Johnson, Chris Noel, Eileen O'Neill, Susan St. James, and Venita Wolf.

Highlights: Bach Yen sings "What Now, My Love?" (in French and in English) and "Dem Dong" a folk song. Bing sings "In the Cool Cool of the Evening" and "Pennies From Heaven". Sketch with Bob as a wealthy Texan and Bing as a snooty Englishman who enter their prize ponies in the Grand National. Also a parody of "Fantastic Voyage" called "Fantastic Stomach" in which a miniaturized Bob and Bing penetrate the Vast Waistline to find out what's ailing Jackie Gleason.
