A 1978 MILTON BERLE TRIBUTE & WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

 

A TRIBUTE TO MR. TELEVISION - MILTON BERLE

On March 26, 1978 a Hollywood gathering paid honor to the man most responsible for the rise of television in the early days.  As the manic host of NBC's Texaco Star Theater (1948-55) , in 1948 he was the first major star of U.S. television and as such became known as Uncle Miltie and Mr. Television to millions during TV's golden age.

In this rare TV special from over 30 years go you will see film clips from some of Berle’s early TV shows and you will see many of the great stars who appeared on those shows.  Joining Uncle Miltie for this special tribute are Lucille Ball, Joey Bishop, George Carlin, Johnny Carson, Angie Dickinson, Kirk Douglas, Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog, Bob Hope, Gabe Kaplan, Gene Kelly, Donny  and Marie Osmond, Gregory Peck and Carl Reiner.  And of course you will see Mr. Televison himself as he accepts this honor and tribute.
