Did You Know?


Tony Bennett sings "Without A Song," "I'll Never Know" and "Just In Time". Mel Torme and Frances Faye perform a song from "Porgy And Bess". Doretta Morrow sings a medley of tunes from "Kismet" including "Bagdad" and "Baubles, Bangles And Beads". Kathryn and Arthur Murray join in a ballroom dancing sketch where Steve tosses around his partner (obviously a dummy) rather violently. Also: "The James Dean Story" Steve conducts a filmed tour of Dean's hometown, Fairmount, Indiana, and chats with friends and relatives there. Among the "Crazy Shots" are Rayburn, Torme, and Bennett seemingly playing craps on the street; turns out to be jacks. Steve interviews himself as a numbskulled football player. See more »
