In reply to: Raft and Jessel were dead within a year! 's message, "Just found this VIDEO of Picon on one of Mike Douglas Show 'theme' TV episodes -this 1980's SUPER SENIORS. In this 1980 Douglas interview ...Picon, George Jessel, George Raft, and Rudy Vallee! IMO, it's TV gold! ..." on Friday, April 06, 06:11:59pm

This episode is a wonderful example of how Mike Douglas made his guests feel comfortable and then instead of a celebrity he/she became a human being. This episode made me feel like I was so lucky to be sitting in their living room after dinner and sharing their live history of an era long gone. And Mike was us...he lit up just like we would to be with these great stars and hear their stories. It was very subtle and a great talent he had as he let his guests relax and be who they really are.

I am a huge George Raft fan. Because of this show you could see what a kind and wonderful gentleman he was...and humble. And George Jessel, Molly Picon and Rudy Vallee were terrific....they were themselves due to Mike's way of interviewing. He is sorely missed.

And the telephone bit 82 year old George Jessell did LIVE, was classic! At his age to rival Newhart or Berman, is amazing, to remember those lines from old Vaudeville days! ...VIDEOFriday, April 13, 11:56:08am
