Episode Recap

Excellent show, Gleason ribbed about his weight. Sheila MacRae, who played Alice in the late 1960s, does a great Zsa Zsa Gabor and Carol Channing. Sid Caesar as Gleason's weight counselor Prof. Ludwig Von Gross. Art Carney comes out as Ed Norton, Sandy Hurt as Gleason's personal caddy, Foster Brooks is just great again as the drunk. Milton Berle was good and had a good line about the gas shortage back then. Also on the dais Frank Gorshin, Nipsey Russell, Gene Kelly, Danny Thomas, Phyllis Diller. If you are a fan of the show, well worth to find it. I am rating it 10
