Jack Benny, Gordon MacRae, Mary Martin, Richard Rodgers, Ed Sullivan, Groucho Marx, Yul Brynner, Rosemary Clooney, Tony Martin, Patricia Morrison, Jan Clayton, John Rait, Ezio Pinza, Oscar Hammerstein

    To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the General Foods Corporation has taken over the NBC and CBS networks from 8:00 to 9:30 P.M. to present highlights from the musical productions of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, 2nd.  The shows to be represented in this review of eleven years of musical-comedy achievement are: Oklahoma, Carousel, Allegro, South Pacific, The King and I, and Me and Juliet. 

   Clarence Francis, chairman of General Foods, opens the program which is hosted by Mary Martin. The first musical number, "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," sung by Gordon MacRae, comes from "Oklahoma!", Rodgers and Hammerstein's first musical collaboration together. Jack Benny then appears in a sketch in which he recalls buying a ticket to "Carousel" for only six dollars and sixty cents. Then John Raitt sings "You're a Queer One, Julie Jordan," and is joined by Jan Clayton in singing "If I Loved You"; both songs are from "Carousel." After Martin sings "It Might as Well Be Spring," from the score to the movie "State Fair," Edgar Bergen and his dummy, Charlie McCarthy, introduce Bill Hayes and Janice Rule in "You Are Never Away," from the musical "Allegro." The following segment is an excerpt from Groucho Marx's "You Bet Your Life" television series, in which he interviews Rodgers and Hammerstein. Then Martin and Ezio Pinza perform "Some Enchanted Evening," and Martin sings "A Wonderful Guy." Both pieces are from the musical "South Pacific." Ed Sullivan then introduces excerpts from "The King and I," which feature Patricia Morison singing "Getting to Know You," with dancing by Michiko, as well as Yul Brynner performing "A Puzzlement." Jack Benny returns to showcase Tony Martin in "The Big Black Giant" and Rosemary Clooney in "No Other Love"; both pieces are from "Me and Juliet." The program ends with MacRae and Florence Henderson performing a duet from "Oklahoma!" titled "People Will Say We're in Love."

#9413: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR, THE
1958-11-05, WRCA, 51 min.
Jack Paar, Oscar Levant, Jose Melis, Genevieve, Evelyn Rudie, Hy Averback, Peter Menjou, Mary McCarty, Adolf Menjou

July 29, 1957- March 30,1962. 

Second broadcast from Hollywood, California.

Announcer, Hy Averback subs for Hugh Downs.

This was the first time that Oscar Levant appeared on television with Jack Paar. Apparently the repartee between Paar & Levant were in some questionable taste...some humor at the expense of the mentally and emotionally disturbed. Oscar Levant, having himself been in sanitariums for the mentally ill would always quip with sharp humor about conditions at these facilities as well as his own neurosis and foibles. There would be numerous future guest appearances by Oscar Levant on the JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW which became legendary.  

On the segment "It's All Relative" guest is Peter Menjou, son of Adolf Menjou.

*Most of this series does not survive in any broadcast form. Kinescopes were discarded, burned, decomposed...whereabouts unknown. 2" Quadruplex Video Tape was expensive ($300 for a one hour reel), weighting 26 pounds, requiring great storage space. Video Tape could easily be erased and was used for new program recordings...retained briefly for a re-run and then erased or discarded. Legend has it that even Jack Paar himself hired a junk man to come to his home garage and paid to have JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW recordings discarded (reels of kinescopes and video tapes) that were now cluttering up his space. 

During this era in television history archiving television programming was not a primary concern or vision, and considered an arcane pursuit. 

ARCHIVAL TELEVISION AUDIO, INC. retains over 70 complete and excerpt JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW air checks (34 hours), including the complete Jack Paar's first anniversary telecast which was broadcast live from Havana Cuba (June 28, 1958).

BELL AND HOWELL CLOSE-UP! a series of reports produced in the main by ABC News' newly formed CLOSE-UP! unit headed by John Secondari, but often by Robert Drew and his team at Drew Associates in association with Time, Inc. Of particular  interest is the fact that John Daly, ABC's vice-president of News and Public Affairs, resigned in protest following the broadcast of Drew's "YANKI NO!" Daly, who in 1953 had become that network's first nightly TV nightly news anchor quit his ABC post in disagreement with the network's  new practice of farming out documentay assignments to independent producers.
 
Unfortunately for Robert Drew Associates, which were creating a new way of making documentaries ('DIRECT CINEMA'), only five different documentaries from his company, three of them filmed by documentary cinematographer Richard Leacock, were broadcast in total (one a two parter) from December 7, 1960 to May 16, 1961.

"MONEY FOR BURNING," A documentary about the Secret Service (protecting the president from harm and protection of US money from counterfeiters). 

Deputy Chief Paul Paterney and agent Richard Roth describe and then raid a counterfeiting distribution center. Undercover agents explain their roles and methods. Tips on spotting bad bills are also offered. Interestingly, in 1962 five hundred thousand dollars' worth of bogus bills was passed in the USA. Three and a half million was intercepted before it went into circulation and 737 do-it-yourself currency producers were arrested. 

Narrated by Oscar Rose.

Jack Paar, Oscar Levant, Robert Morley

 September 21, 1962 - September 10, 1965

Jack Paar elected to pursue a three year NBC series in prime time soon after stepping down as host of THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR (1957-1962). These broadcasts took on the form of a variety/talk show format. Each telecast opened with a Paar monologue. Also shown from time to time were personal home movies shot by Jack on various trips by the Paar family to Africa, Russia, and Europe. Jack's daughter, Randy Paar would often assist her dad narrating these films.  

Appearing with Jack were many of his old regulars from the TONIGHT SHOW including Alexander King, Oscar Levant, and Jonathan Winters. This 10 pm Friday prime time slot attracted many notable guests, including Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater, and Ted Kennedy. Also, given exposure were many young and veteran entertainers, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland, Ethel Merman, Peggy Lee, and stand-up comedians, among them, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, Godfrey Cambridge, Jackie Vernon, Mike Nichols & Elaine May, Burns & Schreiber, and Dick Gregory. 

Impact appearances occurred introducing footage of The Beatles, prior to the group appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show, and a young Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), singing and spewing poetry with Jack and Liberace. 

After three years (one and a half years less than his tenure on THE TONIGHT SHOW), Jack Paar called it quits and would prematurely retire from the business with the exception of producing and starring in a handful of Specials for NBC and accepting one brief return to regular television, for nine months, hosting an ABC late-night talk show, JACK PAAR TONITE in 1973).

Guests include Oscar Levant and Robert Morley.

  Scott Ellsworth's guest is pianist Ocscar Peterson.

March 30, 1970 - April 1, 1972
KFI 640 Los Angeles AM Radio.

162 individual  broadcast Audio Air Checks survive. 
A goldmine of originally recorded live interviews with the greats from the Jazz and Big Band era, with integrated recorded samples of their work played throughout the broadcast.  


Scott Ellsworth was the creator and on-air host of the popular radio program, "SCOTT'S PLACE." It aired live on KFI-AM in Los Angeles, six times a week, from midnight to 4:00 am (MARCH 30, 1970 - APRIL 1, 1972). Over 500 unique broadcasts featured jazz and big band music, interspersed with live interviews with musicians, singers, composers, conductors, arrangers, band leaders, writers, music producers, dealers & promoters.

These guest artists would drop by the studio after midnight, quite often following work or performing, and would bring some of their favorite records or personal recordings to the show to play for Scott and his audience. They would talk about their career, reminiscing with anecdotes...their love of jazz and big band music.

Interviews averaged in length from one hour to four hours.

Scott was exceptional in his ability to draw together some of the finest artists and musicians representing the history of jazz music...many who were not known by name to the general public, but well know to the jazz community dating back to the 1920's, 30's,40's, and 50's.

The SCOTT'S PLACE theme music, "Have A Nice Day," played by Count Basie & his band, was composed and arranged by Sammy Nestico specifically for Scott, in July 1971. It was used permanently as Scott's theme music beginning in November 1971. 

Most of the lesser known legendary jazz artists who frequented the show did few, if any, talk shows in their life, making these candid conversations so valued since most of these individuals are now deceased.
