#9518: SUZY VISITS
1977-05-24, NBC, 60 min.
Frank Sinatra, Muhammad Ali, Suzy Knickerbocker, Aileen Mehle

Aileen Mehle interviews Frank Sinatra, his wife Barbara and Muhammad Ali. 
Sinatra and his family are visited at his home in Palm Springs,  California where Sinatra provides a guided tour. Suzy Knickerbocker is the host.  

Muhammad Ali is interviewed first at a photography studio in Chicago, later at his training camp in Landover, Maryland. 

Frank Sinatra discusses his early popularity as a crooner to his philosophy at age 61, stating that he lives each day as if it were his last. Also discussed are, good times and bad times with the press and other subjects. Sinatra mentions to Mehle that this interview has been the most complete he has given on television since his appearance on Person to Person done many years ago. 

Muhammad Ali is heard spouting his poetic "Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee." He talks about his fight with Joe Frazier, and  states how after 23 years in the ring he has not a  scratch on him. He reminds all that he will be getting  married to his lovely bride to be Veronica on June 19th. Ali states that Veronica is not afraid of him being in the ring...Ali more afraid of flying than boxing. 

Muhammad Ali's continues his interview from his training headquarters in Landover, Maryland where he is training for his next fight against Alfredo Evangelista. He mentions that five days before a fight he drinks only juices consisting of oranges, limes, and lemons. He loves to keep his skin healthy by using soap mixed with coca butter. Ali tells Aileen Mehle that he has no political ambitions, and why...his love of children, and never staying angry. He mentions that after three more fights he will retire for good. Before the end of the interview, Muhammad Ali, dressed up, mentions how he loves the feeling of dressing up. "It makes me feel dignified."

 Broadcast concludes with a Sinatra ballad, and "Suzi" aka Aileen Mehle saying good night.
