Steve Allen on The Tonight Show (Rare Clip)

This is the full version of the clip from the original incarnation of The Tonight Show, starring original host Steve Allen, that was used in Bill “Balloonman” Morrison’s interview with Steve. It features a bizarre comedy bit with a walking/talking doll and a jaunty musical number entitled “Love Thy Neightbor” (Steve refers to the piano player as “Skitch,” does that make him Skitch Henderson?). I will be happy to remove this clip if it conflicts with any copyright laws, but what I’ve been able to find seems to indicate it’s okay to show.

3 of 5 Dean Martin Bob Hope Johnny Carson Judy Carne Tonight Show 1969 The IMDB Bio of Dean Martin: tiny.cc : “Much of the “booze” that he drank on stage during his famous “Rat Pack” performances was really apple juice. (Son Dean Paul Martin spilled this secret, after the variety show ended production, stating that his father couldn’t have performed if he’d really drunk that much liquor.)” “If people want to think I get drunk and stay out all night, let ‘em. That’s how I got here, you know.”
