Classic hour of TV comedy, 17 October 2008
Author: luannjim from Sacramento, CA USA

I saw this special once, when it was broadcast in February 1970, and I don't believe it has ever been seen from that day to this. Too bad, because it's one of the most brilliantly funny hours in the history of television. Two Adamses (Don and Edie) and two Dons (Adams and Rickles) starred in a series of wonderful parodies of classic movies, each one funnier than the last. All three of the stars (and if I recall correctly, they were the entire cast except for narrator Charlton Heston) were very gifted mimics, and they gave witty impressions of a roster of classic stars -- Edie did her famous Mae West, Don A. his equally famous William Powell. And Rickles and Edie did a dead-on spoof of Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in GONE WITH THE WIND.

This was an absolutely classic hour of TV comedy, and I dearly hope it still exists somewhere and will become available on video one of these days.
