Movie Reviews

A great gift for anyone who saw one of these shows
A reader | New York City | 11/09/2004

"I caught a glimpse of Bob Hope's 1967 TV show on a set in the transient terminal at Cam Rahn Bay. I thought that I was in one of the audience close up shots and I've wondered since then if indeed it was me. A small mystery to carry through life. So, I bought this DVD and--question answered last night--it wasn't me.

But it was a treat to see the 1967 show and especially Raquel Welch again. She was gorgeous (and still is).

A lot of the humor was corny, and seems even more so now. But I remember sitting down by myself after catching the show in person at the air base in Nakhon Phanom, Thailand, and just feeling good. That feeling didn't return watching the show again, but the memory of it did and with it a feeling of gratitude to Hope and everyone who traveled with him.

There are shows in this set from Korea, Germany and other places far from southeast Asia. But none of the people in any of the audiences shows signs of regarding themselves as pitiful victims, which might surprise people who only know about the war or service to country from the media and what they are told in school. Particularly noteworthy is what is revealed by the audience wideshots in Vietnam: the number of young black Americans in Vietnam was not disproportionate, including in combat outfits like the First Infantry Division.

"I rated The Vietnam Years 1 Star due to the problem of a defective disk 1. I was unable to view Years 1965 and 1966. T rate the 1964 and the other years 5 stars. I ordered the Bob Hope - The Vietnam Years (1964-1972 on two different occasions and returned them to Amazon.com. I am still waiting for a non defective replacement. I recommend that Amazon.com customers consider this before making a order for this set."
Something is missing but the shows are GREAT!

"These shows are great! Bob was a wonderful entertainer. I saw the show at Clark AFB. I hope that someone will gather the other shows from 1948 on and put those out.

I cannot understand why someone would rate these 1 star just because there is a problem with a disc. You should be reviewing the show, not a production problem. A product problem gets resolved by getting a replacement, this does not affect the content which is what people want to read about.

SOMETHING IS MISSING - I do note that even though the shows should be 90 minutes, they are actually closer to 70. The musical numbers from the guest stars have been removed among other things. I presume they could not get clearance for the performances. Too bad. It would have been nice to get the complete shows."
BOB HOPE IS COOL!
