Storyline

Berle's scheduled guests this week include vocalist Billy Eckstine, Dorothy Collins, comedians Morey Amsterdam and Henny Youngman, musical/comedy performer Jack Durant, Kenny Sharpe, actor Jack Albertson, Billy Barty, acrobat and trampoline act The Schaller Brothers, actress/singer Mary Beth Hughes, and the Harriet Hoctor Dancers. Berle refuses to sign a contract for next season, so the Texaco rep (Albertson) threatens to replace him with Amsterdam or Youngman. Collins sings "Treat Me Rough." The finale, "Around the Town," looks at entertainment offered at various New York City locations. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

Trivia

Berle performed a sketch that parodied Phil Spitalny and His All-Girl Orchestra and their program "The Hour of Charm." Spitalny felt the burlesque belittled his group and sought a court order to prevent the kinescope from being shown on NBC's non-connected stations. His efforts simply garnered more attention for Berle. See more »
