The Colgate Comedy Hour (17.9.1950)

USA 1950

V'13

Produced by NBC in the years 1950-1955, the one-hour live show THE COLGATE COMEDY HOUR is one of the classics of American TV history. With changing hosts Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin appeared in all six seasons. Their sketches were based – suitable for tv - on their stage programmes with plenty of room for improvisation and reaction to the camera and audience. Facing their adhoc transformation into German nazi spies or the great parody of COME BACK, LITTLE SHEBA with Burt Lancaster himself this tv shows seem to be the best they ever provided as a duo.
