BOB HOPE SALUTES THE TROOPS REVIEWED
“Bob Hope Salutes the Troops” is a collection of USO stops that Bob Hope made to Vietnam and beyond. These specials are edited into a way that makes them breeze around with great care. If you’re a completist that wants the original broadcasts, you might be out of luck. Still, that’s not why you watch these specials. You watch them for Hope to crack wise with Rosie Greer and then Marie Osmond. These specials are the pinnacle of American TV sentimentality without ever truly acknowledging military sacrifice. Still, a free show is a free show.
