Yes, they loved him overseas.
I always thought that the perfect material for Keaton to use during these live programs would be to re-work the routines he performed at the European circuses he toured in after the war.
Bucking for Benny? Crazy for Carson? Advocating Amos and Andy? Need to know more about Uncle Miltie's legendary... joke file? Tune in here. (Rabbit Ears not included)
Indeed - a couple Dutch-subtitled 16mm prints I've seen (Army Story and Gorilla Story) also support the idea that it enjoyed rather widespread global sales. I also wonder how many foreign television shows Keaton might have appeared in -- that is, whether Es darf gelacht werden (Germany 1962, presumably now lost) was the exception to the rule or is just the tip of the iceberg...
