1970s / Bobby Fischer and Bob Hope
Shortly after Bobby Fischer's famous victory over Boris Spassky to win the world chess championship in 1972, the 29-year-old Fischer--who was widely regarded as a Cold War hero in the western world--appeared on a Bob Hope special in this terrific skit. (Listen to the long ovation he gets when he first appears!) Fischer showed unexpected but wonderful humor, comedic timing, and an endearing personality. Sadly, those personal traits wouldn't last long in Fischer's real life.
