LittleRickyII Posted January 26, 2014 Report Share Posted January 26, 2014 Somewhere along the line, I did see this and can't say I was impressed. Don't remember much about it, so am looking forward to a report. However, I believe it was a special because Berle did not have a series at that point. Correct. Milton Berle's series had ended four years earlier. This special aired as part of an anthology series called Sunday Showcase. This is one of only three segments of the Sunday Showcase series that featured Berle. The three segments were "The Milton Berle Show," which aired on October 25, 1959 and featured Danny Thomas, Peter Lawford and Lana Turner; "A Tribute to Eleanor Roosevelt on Her Diamond Jubilee," which aired October 11, 1959 (Berle was one of numerous celebrities in the cast); and this one, called "The Milton Berle Special," which aired November 1, 1959, a little over a month following "Milton Berle Hides Out at the Ricardos." http://ctva.biz/US/Anthology/SundayShowcase.htm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
