Storyline

This public service short for U.S. Savings Bonds starts out with Rowan and Martin arriving at a TV studio, ostensibly to host a show. It turns out that trumpet player Herb Alpert is the only other performer listed in the credits who is actually there in person. The others appear in clips, some from their own U.S. Savings Bonds spots, others from unidentified movie or TV appearances. Singer Barbara McNair is shown entertaining U.S. troops in Viet Nam, and the youth group The Young Americans also sings. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>

Sock It to Savings Bonds
30 November 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"Laugh-In" TV hosts Dan Rowan and Dick Martin arrive at the studio ("2001: A Space Odyssey" is showing) to film a short promotional film. They want you to buy US Savings Bonds. This is done in the style of their comedy show, with writer Paul Keyes helping to give it the "sock it to me" appeal. The comic duo have a rapport and are genuinely funny. They wouldn't make it, today, without ditching Dan's cigarette smoking and Dick's female conquest stories. Several celebrity clips are show. Most appear to be recirculated from other sources. This is the case with the memorable clip of Mr. Martin kissing Doris Day (from "The Glass Bottom Boat"). Funniest is probably Don Knotts. He and co-star Andy Griffith are likely clips from the "Laugh-In" series. Best musical interlude, from Barbara McNair, is unfortunately cut short.

**** Rowan & Martin at the Movies (1968) Jack Arnold ~ Dan Rowan, Dick Martin, Doris Day, Don Knotts
