Saturday night classic!
20 September 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

I saw a copy for this program in a video rental store and picked it up. It immediately brought me back to Saturday nights in the early 60's. The opening music with the good looking girls in tight dresses who introduced the shows sponsors. Then the June Taylor dancers routine followed by Jackie himself coming out to thunderous applause. The applause would die down long enough for Jackie to say "How Sweet It Is" which would get the crowd going again. His introduction of his flashy dressed orchestra leader Sammy Spear. One of his girls would bring him a cup of coffee? which he would take a sip and then say "WOW" a few quick jokes and his trademark "A little traveling music Sam...And Away We Go" There was even a skit with Frank Fontaine as Crazy Guggenheim in Joes Bar. At the end of the hour Jackie would come out and say "The Miami Beach audience is the greatest audience in the world...Good night everybody"

There are no longer variety shows such as this on television. Perhaps this type format just wore it self out. Jackie Gleason is best remembered for his classic show "The Honeymooners" and to a later generation as the Sheriff in the "Smokey and the Bandit" films. For me any way it will always be for this show on Saturday Nights.
