  • PATTY DUKE STEALS THE SHOW

    9.0
    Would love to see this particular Merv Griffin Show again. On this show, the special guest star was actress PATTY DUKE, who had just won an Emmy Award for the movie, MY SWEET CHARLIE. There was quite a bit of talk at the time that Patty seemed "out of it" when she accepted her Award. Here, on the Merv Griffin Show, she attempted to explain why she appeared so exhausted. She introduces her then-husband Michael Tell to the audience who speaks briefly of an Arc he's planning to build. I didn't know who the heck Mike Tell was but he seemed nice enough. Merv then asks Patty to sing, which to my surprise she did, she got up and sang with the Orchestra a very off the cuff version of WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE ~ vocally not superb perhaps but sung with dramatic conviction. Been many summers since I first watched this. Would love to know how I could purchase a copy of this particular show -moreless
