I Owe Russia $1200.
1963 - Garden City. Doubleday. 1963. 8vo., original cloth with price-clipped dust wrapper. A little chipping and light creasing to wrapper, otherwise a very good copy. First edition inscibed by Bob Hope "To Father David, This is what I do between golf games, very best, Bob Hope." A collection of anaecdotes including stories from a trip Bob Hope made to Russia in the early 1960s. [sold with] 24 pages of typescript carbon copies containing notes for Bob Hope's comedy. The majority of the notes are for the Peace Officer's Shrine Club Dinner held at the Statler-Hilton on April 20th 1964. The notes are in four sections, one based around the District Attorney William B. McKesson, another on Sheriff Peter J. Pitchess, one on Police Chief William Parker and miscellaneous notes. Several of the notes are repeated at various stages throughout the various sheets. We presume that these notes are unpublished. The other sheets of notes refer to an episode of Chrysler Theatre TV Series for 25th September 1964, with the upcoming Presdiential Election bearing the brunt of Hope's comedy. "Both candidates are watching each other like hawks.LBJ sneezed the other day and Goldwater accused him of germ warfare."

The show was hosted by Bob Hope, but it had a variety of formats, including musical, dramatic, and comedy. Hope was paid $25,000 per week for those episodes which he merely introduced, and $500,000 for those in which he starred in [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
