Host Dick Cavett welcomes Mohammed Ali's doctor Ferdie Pacheco to discuss Ali's fight with Joe Frazier. Then Cavett brings out Lucie Arnaz, Carol Burnett, and Lucille Ball one by one. Arnaz is 19 and talks about her childhood and catholic school nuns. Carol talks about her childhood and how she got her start with the help of a rich benefactor; Cavett tries to sensationalize it and it falls flat. Burnett puts Cavett in his place several times when he tries to get salacious. Ball also talks about her entry into showbiz and getting fired from Ziegfeld production. Both Ball and Burnett talk about their famous red hair and how it's died and they both wish it was natural.
