Description: BOB HOPE introduces dancer Patty Thomas at a fighter base in England in 1944, during one of Bob's numerous overseas USO jaunts. Hope and his band seemed to be everywhere at once, doing more for morale than an army of entertainers. There was nothing more popular than Bob Hope's touring USO show which made its way across the globe through all theaters of war. As Bob Sand recalled, "Bob Hope's pen-up girls got more attention from GIs than Bob Hope..."Gee, they looked good!" [Rescan for better image] **
