Montgomery Clift, Merv Griffin, Don Adams

Merv Griffin's guests are Montgomery Clift and Don Adams. 

Note: In Merv Griffin's 1980 Autobiography "MERV" he states:
"Of all the remarkable guests on my NBC talk show, one appearance remains in my mind as the most memorable, Montgomery Clift." He did very few televisions interviews in his life, and arrived at the studio, intoxicated, while Griffin was already on the air. However, when Merv introduced him, Clift walked on stage like he had pushed a button inside his brain that brought self-control. Montgomery Clift gave Merv Griffin, that afternoon, a lucid, fascinating interview including anecdotes about his relationship with Marilyn Monroe. By the end of the interview they both shook hands. Monty waved to the audience and strode offstage...collapsing against a wall the moment he was off camera.

August 18, 1969-February 11, 1972. CBS signed Merv Griffin to a ninety-minute late night talk show in 1969. On hand were announcer Arthur Treacher and the Mort Lindsay Orchestra, both of whom had been with Griffin on his Westinghouse show. In September 1970 the show moved from New York to Los Angeles but to no avail, playing second best to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." Most of these shows were erased by CBS and did not survive. Jayne Wyman, Robert Wagner, Busby Berkeley, Della Reese
