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.

2 Remarks

  1. Thanks,Greg, We never missed the Bob Hope Xmas specials either. But out of all of his career achievements the one I remember the best is the year he hosted the Oscars and joked that the Oscars in his house was known as Passover.

  2. I remember a lovely duet performed by them years ago at the Crosby clam bake after the golf tournament moved to Clemmons, NC. He spoiled the evening for me however when he told a fag joke on stage at Groves Stadium. He could be a real jerk. A few years before that, he told the Tonight Show audience how much he loved performing in black face.
