I remember International Showtime as a lad back in the early sixties when America was treated to the best of European circus acts. The shows were hosted by Don Ameche who was one classy and debonair ringmaster.
I thought Ameche had the greatest job in the world. Just sit and watch the acts and introduce them. He was a man with a lot of class and charm and it was working on all cylinders during the show.
Ameche hosted the show, but he never allowed International Showtime to be about himself. The circus acts were always the main attraction. Still the host role fit Don Ameche perfectly.
I remember the show being on at Friday night at 8:00 pm. early enough for the children of all ages to watch.
If they ever revived International Showtime, who in the world today could replace someone like Don Ameche.
