Hy Gardner was a well-known New York Herald-Tribune columnist.  He  appeared regularly on Tonight! and America After Dark, a short-term substitute for Tonight! after Steve Allen abandoned it early in 1957. Gardner specialized in profiling show business celebrities and other news makers, and he hosted a nightly ten-minute TV interview program in New York called Face to Face. His weekly Sunday-night show, Hy Gardner Calling!, also aired only in the New York area and consisted of interviews conducted by telephone, with the subject seemingly at home, but actually seated in one studio, while Gardner sat at his desk in another. The telephone hook-up was real, and there was no physical proximity between host and guest. The show premiered in 1954 ? on New York City’s NBC affiliate station WRCA-TV, Channel 4, and ran until 1965. 

Hy Gardner interviews Elvis Presley, hours after he appeared on The Sunday Night STEVE ALLEN SHOW, singing "HOUND DOG."
This short interview would be the only one that Presley would agree to do on television. Milton Berle was the catalyst for making this appearance happen.

-The board of directors for Lowe's Inc. include the former secretary of defense Louis Johnson, former secretary of the army Frank Pace, and former secretary of the navy, John Sullivan. Hy thinks that MGM must be getting ready to launch a new cycle of war movies.

#6967: TONIGHT! STARRING STEVE ALLEN

Steve Allen, Hy Gardner, Milt Kamen, Jack Lescoulie, Lionel Hampton, Buddy Hackett, Bob Considine, Jayne Meadows, Peter Lawford, Earl Wilson, Micki Marlo, John Crosby, Sammy Davis, Sally Powers, Maggie Pierce, Dorothy Miller, Joe Interleggi, Vic Marcell, Jim Moran, Mrs. Sterling

September 27, 1954 - January 25, 1957. This evenings telecast is the final TONIGHT! show starring Steve Allen. A farewell party is staged. All the regular singers are featured in musical numbers and Steve uses some of the 'gimmicks which found great popularity on show during the 2 1/2 years on air, including the big salami, and goo goo dolls. Steve speaks briefly to some of the men on the new "Tonight" show which starts next week. They include Jack Lescoulie, Earl Wilson, Hy Gardner, & Bob Considine. 

The basic format of The Tonight! Show was established during Allen's tenure: an opening monologue, a segment involving the studio audience (through interviews or games such as "Stump the Band"), and a simple set (a desk and chair for the host, a couch for the guests), all trademarks of the Allen era. Allen inaugurated the out-of-town broadcast (the first one was done from Miami), the one guest show (Carl Sandburg was the first solo guest), and the one topic show (entire programs devoted to such subjects as narcotics, civil rights, and black music). Allen also established the practice of paying his guests only "scale," the minimum fee required by union-network contract (this practice led to a highly publicized  feud between Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan and later between Jack Paar and Ed Sullivan, as Sullivan paid top dollar for his guests). Though Allen's Tonight! show closely resembled the shows of his successors, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, it was more a musical show; Allen himself was an accomplished musician and composer (he wrote his theme, "This Could Be The Start of Something Big"), and he employed a nucleus of musical regulars on his show. In addition to announcer – sidekick Gene Rayburn, the show featured singers Steve Lawrence (who was only seventeen when he began singing on Allen's local show), Eydie Gormé (who subsequently married Steve Lawrence), Andy Williams (who later hosted several series of his own), and Pat Marshall (who was succeeded by Pat Kirby).  Skitch Henderson led the Orchestra.

Hy Gardner was a well-known New York Herald-Tribune columnist.  He  appeared regularly on Tonight! and America After Dark, a short-term substitute for Tonight! after Steve Allen abandoned it early in 1957. Gardner specialized in profiling show business celebrities and other news makers, and he hosted a nightly ten-minute TV interview program in New York called Face to Face. His weekly Sunday-night show, Hy Gardner Calling!, also aired only in the New York area and consisted of interviews conducted by telephone, with the subject seemingly at home, but actually seated in one studio, while Gardner sat at his desk in another. The telephone hook-up was real, and there was no physical proximity between host and guest. The show premiered in 1954 ? on New York City’s NBC affiliate station WRCA-TV, Channel 4, and ran until 1965.

#14249A: CASSIUS CLAY INTERVIEW WITH CLURE MOSHER: HY GARDNER SHOW
1963-08-01, WOR, 5 min.
Hy Gardner, Charles Laughton, Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali, Henry Cooper, Clure Mosher, Brian Wilson (?)

On HY GARDNER SHOW, an excerpt replay of Heavyweight boxer Cassius Clay's (Muhammad Ali)  interview by WOR-TV sports reporter Clure Mosher, originally broadcast the middle of May 1963 prior to Clay flying to London to fight reigning British Heavyweight Champion, Henry Cooper. 

Cassius Clay tells Clure Mosher that he wants to fight "the bear" Sonny Liston. He states, "I want him three months after Patterson. I'm going to get this man out of the way. He is nothing."

Mosher replies, "Liston is a big, stern and mean-looking man, Cassius. I fear he would just scare you to death getting in the ring with him."

Cassius Clay, "I'm just too crazy to be scared."

Clure Mosher, "I think you're going to do very well and make a lot of money. And, as a matter of fact, you and Patterson may go down in history, as far as I am concerned, as being two of the boxers around having made more money with less talent than anybody."

Cassius Clay, "You are just getting off the subject. You just talk too much. I'm sorry I have to go to bed. I have a fight coming up and I don't want to see you unless I'm in the ring. I'm through."

 Clay walks out on the interview.

After television viewers, Hy Gardner, and his guest views this clip Hy Gardner is amazed at what we just saw.
 
Hy Gardner, "Did you ever see anything like that?" Now, this was Cassius Clay. I don't know if he just got mad and walked out or this was just showmanship?"   

Hy's guest, Brian Wilson (?) on his show remarks that he thinks it was showmanship. Gardner remembers only one time that a guest on his show quit on him on the air, naming Charles Laughton.  

Gardner, "I think it is great when someone does walk out on you. Is this the real  Cassius Clay or Cassius Clay the image?"  

Hy Gardner's guest, Brian Wilson (?) mentions that he recently spent three days in Miami with Clay and thinks he is great for boxing predicting nine out of ten times the round he will beat his opponents. 

Hy comments that during the Clure Mosher interview Clay amazingly called the exact round he would defeat his next opponent. 

NOTE: One month after the May 1963 Clure Mosure interview, Cassius Clay predictably KO'd Henry Cooper in five rounds on June 18, 1963). 

NOTE: The Cassius Clay May 1963 television interview by Clure Mosher is the earliest known extant one on one studio interview of Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali).   

NOTE: See ATA#14145K aircheck audio of the broadcast of the Henry Cooper vs Cassius Clay fight.
