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).

#10100: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1972-06-20, NBC, 90 min.
Lee Marvin, Johnny Carson, Don Adams, Ed McMahon, Don Rickles, Muhammad Ali, Joan Harper

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

Guest Host: Don Rickles.
