Just released! Probably the most enjoyable TV show with Nelson Eddy that we’ve seen thus far! The date: February 16, 1954. Nelson is the featured guest, sings two times on the show and then does a lengthy, fabulous comedy/musical sketch with Bob Hope in which they sing operatic numbers (with rewritten lyrics) and smash cars! Just a wonderful, wonderful hour of classic television!
Note: If you have read the book “Sweethearts” you will remember that Jeanette appeared on Bob Hope’s daily radio show for a week and Nelson made a surprise appearance during one of them…this is that show! Nelson joined Jeanette on radio to promote this TV appearance and his performance on it is relaxed, happy and demonstrates his comedic skills as well as his fabulous voice. He is just glowing and at his best.
