Episode Summary

December 13, 1962
Edie Adams takes advantage of her London stay to add some of its character to her show. Her special guests are Bob Hope and Sir Michael Redgrave. You'll be hearing her sing against a background of the Thames River, Hyde park, the remains of blitzed ruins, in vintage costumes for madrigals like "With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arms", with sidewalk minstrels, Cockney kids. You'll see the Grenadier Guards at Wellington Barracks and even get a bit of Shakespeare on the Lambeth Bridge from Sir Michael Redgrave himself. Edie joins Bob Hope at the Royal Command Performance presented to Queen Elizabeth. Highlights: Edie wanders the old town singing "Up the Old Kent Road" with a group of Buskers in Hyde Park. Edie performs "If You Were the Only Boy in the World" in a World War II ruin, and Edie does "What Kind of Fool Am I?" in a big gaming room. Edie sings "Consider Yourself" with a group of Cockney children. Edie and Bob do a comedy sketch together. Sir Michael Redgrave reads the soliloquy from Shakespeare's "Henry V".moreless
