    Except for the Johnny Carson “Tonight Show,” this was my favorite late-night program. I almost made sure I saw it at least once a week when it was on.

    Phil Silvers was so great…

    Dick Cavett was the best of all time as he never saw himself as the star unlike some of the others. You remember his show for the guests not the interviewer as it should be.

    @Di0genesus Excellent comparison. Did you know that Frost did the Thrilla in Manilla fight. Why I don’t know.

    He’s America’s David Frost :)

    Dick Cavett’s charm should be bottled, it would be the greatest cure for insomnia.


    Phil Silvers is a complete and total genius.

    Good stuff, real legends.

  21. smscamp says:

    Sadly they do not televise shows like Benny and Bilko because of some attitude that the young people will not watch black and white.

    I only wish TCM, who shows classic films, would should such classic tv shows as well

    True treasure of a video! I liked Phil Silvers with Cornel Wilde in the movie A thousand and one nights

    Bilko was made in the 50′s mate.

    I remember them (except ‘I dream..’) when they were first run on brit tv in the 60′s though. Is that what you meant?
