The Ernie Kovacs Rehearsal is a televised rehearsal of the Ernie Kovacs
show. Ernie Kovacs hosted a popular variety show in the 1950's, and this
particular episode was the eleventh in production. This rehearsal
episode is popular due to the fact that in the 1950's the audience
generally did not witness incidents like bloopers and crew members being
clearly visible in the shots. This episode was filmed for preservation,
which is what makes it a lot different than the live episodes.
