A long sought-after guest, singer-actor-TV host John Davidson (finally!) joins Gilbert and Frank to talk about his six decades in show business, his admiration for stand-up comedians, his ability to play the role of "John Davidson" and his memories of working with Julie Andrews, Lucille Ball, George Carlin, Bob Hope and Elvis Presley. Also, John dines with Walt Disney, opens for Jack Benny, steers clear of Paul Lynde and guest-hosts "The Tonight Show" 87 times. PLUS: "The Streets of San Francisco"! In praise of Peter Marshall! The sex appeal of Ricardo Montalban! Don Rickles lays it on the line! And John looks back on the golden age of variety shows!
