Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Don't Shoot, It's Only Me is Bob's story of being there with the jokes at every vital point during the last half-century of America's history. He was in the middle of the Vietnam War. It's all here, the fun, the laughts, the heartache, the danger, reflected in the longest continuous career at the tip of show business since Methuselah was doing two a day. Bob Hope can say: "I've known most of the great personalities of our time, met thousands of men and women in uniform, and had a guests on my shows some of the most beautiful women in the world. If I had my life to live over again, I wouldn't have the strength. But I'd like to try."
