Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas (1977)

As we start this first full week of December, I bring you another classic TV variety special. This time, it's Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas.

First airing on November 30, 1977, the special marks Crosby's last-ever Christmas special in his lifetime, as he died after taping but before the special aired. The hour-long special is most notable as featuring a very famous duet.

Yes, that famous duet.

Most of us have seen the clip of the two of them singing, but I thought it would be interesting to watch it in the context of the entire special.
