Episode Summary

EDIT
2/28/1950
AIRED:

Berle's guests this week include: actor Victor Jory; singer Fran Warren; acrobatic dance trio The Charlivels; and singer Rudy Vallee.
Berle opens dressed as Cinderella. He leads the audience in a "Sing the Headlines" bit. Fran Warren sings "Love Walks Out" and a medley of her hits. A takeoff on the movie "Spellbound"stars Jory as apsychiatrist who hypnotizes patient Miltie into repeating everything he sees and hears. Vallee performs a medley of his 1930's songs. In the finale, a gap-toothed Berle leads a motley college glee club in butchering songs; guest soloist Vallee is pelted with fish during his attempted tune.

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The episode runs long. In the glee club sketch, as Rudy Vallee begins singing, Berle yells, "Cut! We haven't the time." He has Rudy take a bow and the Texaco men come marching on to sing the close. Berle and Vallee stand behind them and sing off-key.

      • A smart-mouthed kid takes of for vacationing pitchman Sid Stone in the Texaco mid-show spot.
