What a wonderful show!!!
25 July 2014 | by (North Carolina, United States) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to view this filming of Kirk's one-man show on TCM on 7/24/2014. For a man who, at that time, was 92, he was spry and moved around a lot and shared his reflections of his life with the audience. At times very touching, with his own version of a walk of remembrance with a sidewalk of autographs of departed friends, and sitting and conversing by the grave of his son, Eric. But most of the time it was quite humorous. He talks about his depression after his stroke and he moved the audience to laughter when he punctuated it with a joke! He is a rare treasure....hopefully he will be with us for a long time...as he said, he can have another Bar Mitzvah when he is 153 years old!! All in all, a very enjoyable presentation, and if you get the chance, see it!
