Jack is the picture of health, after his second week in Palm Springs. Mary complains about her hotel accomodations, and Bob Crosby tells about the trouble he had in the hotel restaurant. As Jack has trouble with his lines, a telegram is delivered. It’s from Dennis Day, who is missing from the show. Who will he send for his substitute? Bing Crosby teases his brother, jokes about Bob Hope, and shares about his recently finished biography. Bing sings, Open Up Your Heart.
Rochester phones in to tell about car troubles. How bad was the wreck he was in?
The dramatization of Bing’s biography begins. Harry Lillith was born. He was given his nickname at age 7. What other early starts, and childhood firsts go down? Bing and Bob sing, Way Back Home, which also turns into the s0ponsor message.
Relive Bings first days on the radio, his first race horse, and his movie career. Ok, maybe not exactly his true story, but at least an entertaining one.
Note: Bing claims he was born in 1914. He was actually born at least 10 years earlier. He is only a few months younger than his sidekick in movies, Bob Hope.
