The Baron Plays The Duke — Errol’s Last Live Show

29 Sep

September 29, 1959
The Red Skelton Show

www.imdb.com…

Filmed at (CBS) Television City, at the famed Studio 33, the home of the Red Skelton Hour and Show, the Carol Burnett Show, I Love Mama, the Mary Tyler Moore Hour, the Price is Right, Match Game, Hollywood Squares, the Steve Allen Comedy Hour, and many, many others. With it’s massive studios, and other favorable conditions, Television City very powerfully signalled and helped make possible the relocation of television’s epicenter from New York to LA.

~ “Red Skelton portrays hobo Freddie the Freeloader and Flynn his friend, “the Duke.” After a group of beatniks, including Beverly Aadland, mistakes Freddie’s shack for a coffee bar, Freddie is informed by a policeman that all bums have been ordered by the city council to leave town by sundown. Freddie and the Duke decide that the only way they will be able to stay in town is to open their own beatnik coffee bar. Singer Scott Engel (who later went on to fame as Scott Walker of the Walker Brothers) sings Paper doll.”

A Really Big Show

27 Jan

Ed Sullivan proving Errol wasn’t alone in his admiration of early Castro …

A string of other gushing interviews would quickly follow Sullivan’s, conducted by everyone from the revered CBS newsman Edward R. Murrow to the Hollywood actor Errol Flynn. A few months later, in April 1959, Fidel even traveled on a victory lap of the northeastern United States: he was mobbed by admirers as he ate hot dogs in New York City, spoke at Princeton, and made dutiful visits to hallowed shrines of democracy such as Mount Vernon and the Lincoln Memorial.
