Thanks to recently unearthed kine-scopes a new audience can enjoy rare and hilarious performances that have languished unseen for 60 years. Includes performances by James Stewart, Cesar Romero, Shirley MacLaine, Henry Fonda and Jack Benny alongside interviews with Bob Newhart, Lily Tomlin, Carol Channing, Carl Reiner, Norman Lear, Tom Smothers, Alan Young, Jack Carter and Mitzi Gaynor.
