Gilbert and Frank are joined by Tony- and Emmy-nominated actress-singer Michele Lee for a look back at her seven-decade career in television ("Knots Landing"), movies ("The Comic," "The Love Bug") and on the Broadway stage ("How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying") and a lively conversation about the bawdiness of Red Skelton, the naughtiness of Buddy Hackett, the courageousness of Don Rickles and the flirtatiousness of Frank Sinatra. Also, Michele cuts the rug with Fred Astaire, treads the boards with Robert Morse and Rudy Vallee, takes directing tips from Jerry Lewis and plays Lou Costello's wife in the infamous "Bud and Lou." PLUS: "Rod Serling's Night Gallery"! "Scandalous Me: The Jacqueline Susann Story"! In praise of Dick Van Dyke! And Michele shares the screen with Liberace, Danny Kaye and Sammy Davis Jr!
