#16491: DAVID FROST SHOW, THE
1970-11-04, WNEW, 54 min.
Bill Dana, Ed Sullivan, Clark Gable, Don Adams, David Frost, Don Rickles, Hal Frazier, Akim Tamiroff

July 7, 1969-July 14, 1972 (SYNDICATED). During the three-year run of his American talk show, David Frost taped the show (approximately 750 programs) each week, Monday through Thursdays. The series was syndicated by Westinghouse.
Sadly almost 300 or these original telecasts (recorded on 2" Quadraplex Video Tape, were wiped and are now considered forever lost because myopic executives considered these programs as ephemeral, and did not envision these broadcasts as viable future money makers. They also failed to realize the historic significant importance of these interviews and opted instead to recycle the master reels saving not only space in storage but as a value concept of not having to purchase a new $500 video tape for other broadcasts to follow. 

First question by host David Frost is how both Don's first met, followed by a myriad of topics including early childhood memories, early jobs taken, the initial night club years, including recreating part of the act Rickles did doing some of his early impressions of Clark Gable and Akim Tamiroff. 

Don Rickles remembers his impressions when first visiting the UK, and Frost is good natured when being mimicked by Rickles regarding certain English customs. Don remembers working with Clint Eastwood on a picture filmed in Yugoslavia. 

Don Adams discusses his character Maxwell Smart form his series Get Smart and how such character began to rule his real life mannerisms and behavior. Other Don Adams anecdotes, include working with his dear friend and partner Bill Dana, and how the phrase "Would You Believe" first evolved. 

Protégé singer Hal Frazier is discussed by Don Rickles. He sings "Those Are My Favorite Things."

Don Adams and Don Rickles share memories when each served in the military. Adams further discusses his penchant for collecting and reading Military History and his admiration for Robert E. Lee. David Frost introduces outtakes from an upcoming TV Special with Don Rickles in scenes satirizing the classic movies, The Jazz Singer, and Prisoner of Zenda. 

Both Don's express the admiration for Ed Sullivan and relate anecdotes about him. Further anecdotes about both Don Rickles and Don Adams wives. Adams mentions that he is awaiting the adoption of a child and mentions his fear of flying and his past relationship with a stripper.     

Dupe of 7036
