Bobby Clark in Mike Todd’s Revue (1951)

Among the guest stars are Willie, West & McGinty. I wonder how Clark felt about playing a barber in a skit where he mimes slashing his customer’s throat?

This is a wonderful show, reminding us that some old vaudevillians did make it into television (gad, Willy West and McGinty have got to be in their 60's and they're STILL doing that plasterer's sketch! Ten Minutes that made them a lifetime living!).

Odd coincidence, last night we were watching Spike Jones' first Colgate Comedy Hour and at the end, they plugged the Bobby Clark show which was on the following week!
