Showtune Sunday: Bob Hope duets on “Silver Bells” with Marie, Olivia, Reba and wife Delores
I don’t think I ever missed one of Bob Hope’s NBC Christmas Specials.
One of the fun traditions was that he would sing Silver Bells with a female guest each year ranging from Dixie Carter to Donna Mills, Loretta Swit to Barbara Eden and so many more.
But I think my favorite of all was when he sang with his wife Delores Hope who was a wonderful singer – gorgeous voice.
Here is Bob with Delores as well as Olivia Newton-John, Marie Osmond and Reba McIntire.
And as an added bonus, Bob singing the song with Marilyn Maxwell in the scene from the 1951 film The Lemon Drop Kid.
