This film united for the first time Mr. Television, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, and Danny Thomas. They play three men who retired from the garment district who decide to make a line of sports clothes with senior citizens in mind. The three leads are all uniformly great. It was strange to see Thomas' TV wife Marjorie Lord as Caesar's wife, but it was great to see her and Thomas on the TV screen together again. Also there's Morey Ansterdam as their friend who runs the neighborhood deli, at one point he brings out his cello and plays, just like on the Dick Van Dyke Show.
An interesting footnote to this film, is the Summer after it premired on CBS, Berle, Thomas, and Caesar went on tour together. I saw them in Atlantic City and they were great. I'm glad I got to see these three giants together in person, but if this film shows up on some cable station, watch it, it's a lot of fun.
