Grown Up Judy Garland Guests with Bob Hope

This is a fun show with a 29 year old (post MGM years) Judy Garland visiting Bob. The show takes place at an army base in California during the Korean War. There is a nice comedy sketch stating that they are inviting Bob Hope to perform in order get back the silverware that he stole on the last show. There is also a joke about the plan flying only 20 feet above the ground. The highlight of the show is Judy singing the the South Pacific tune called "I am in Love with a Wonderful Guy." This show is nostalgia at its best.
