Jonathan Winters Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Jonathan Winters' last major nightclub appearance was in 1972 as the big-room headliner at the Hilton International in Las Vegas. Winters, who would be following Elvis Presley's stint there, attended Presley's final show. Elvis interrupted his act to give Jonathan nearly fifteen minutes' worth of accolades, and declared Mad, Mad World, which featured Winters, to be his favorite film. He also indicated the scene in which Jonathan wrecks a filling station was the funniest thing he had even seen. After the performance, Winters was invited back to Presley's dressing room, where Elvis greeted him wearing an Oriental mask as a funny and unexpected tribute to him. Jonathan and Elvis hit it off and visited for about an hour before saying their good-byes.
