USO Tour Bob Hope Christmas Special 1968

Actress Ann-Margret joined Bob Hope's troupe for the 1968 tour. At Cam Ranh Bay, where it poured rain, the ensemble donned hats and remained on stage. “We’re not going to let this little rain shower bother us are we?” asked Hope. “Where’s Billy Graham when you need him?” When a stagehand came to take Ann-Margret’s fur out of the rain, Hope remarked, “Look at this…nothing gets saved but Ann-Margret’s fur.” They finished the show with “Silent Night,” and the audience sat there in the rain and sang with them. “It was the only Christmas they had, and they weren’t going to miss it,” said Hope during the telecast.
