Bob Hope's Yellow Ribbon Party (1991) (TV)

As part of an earlier promise to US forces, Bob Hope put on a homecoming show for US Troops who served in both the 1991 Persian Gulf War and the 1989 invasion of Panama from his Palm Springs, California home. Considered by many to be his final USO Show.

Great show, along with regulars like Brooke and Marie O, you'll see the fabulous Patti LaBelle singing like she's at a Black Tie evening event even though it's daytime and she's outdoors! Completely brings down the figurative house, she's just great. The audience is all regular folk, servicemen and women and their families. Full of pride and all sharing in their love of America and the American way. One of television's greatest hours. Bob was the man.
