Rare sketches you'll never see in "I Love Lucy" reruns! Lucille Ball's extraordinary talent carried her beyond her highly popular series "I Love Lucy", "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour", "The Lucy Show", and "Here's Lucy". With husband Desi Arnaz (who played Ricky Ricardo) and cast members Vivian Vance (Ethel Mertz) and William Frawley (Fred Mertz) she was a frequent guest of other celebrities on their shows during the Golden Age of TV. You'll see them on a 1954 live broadcast, "Toast of the Town", in which host Ed Sullivan gets manhandled when he pays a visit to their home. In this hiliarious sketch, the three of them crack up when Ed actually laughs. In 1955, Lucy and Desi stumped the "What's My Line?" panelists with their disguised voices and back and forth answers. In 1959, a promotional film - never aired on TV - was produced for westinghouse, the new sponsor of the "Desilu Playhouse".

The Bob Hope show by Bob Hope( Recording )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the war years, "Bob Hope's Pepsodent show" was radio's highest rated series. Hope's legendary broadcasts from military bases around the world helped boost American morale during some of our darkest days. However, it was the lightning fast pace of his countless jokes that made the show such a success. Bob Hope's co-star was Jerry Colonna, a madcap musician complete with outlandish mustache. Colonna, or "Professor" as he was known on the show, became famous for his two catch phrases: "Greetings, Gate!" and "Who's Yehudi?". Although the show's humor was based around the current events of the 1930's, 40's and 50's, it is as funny today as it was 60 years ago
