The rousing finale of our bonus features is the finale from All Star Review originally broadcast on NBC TV 4/19/52. A festive song and dance ala his vaudeville act. The scene is set at Club Durant with the opening number- I'm Just Wild About Harry. He then introduces his old partner, Eddie Jackson-who in vaudeville days was part of the trio-Clayton, Jackson & Durante. They do several songs together including Bill Bailey and Umbriago. One more commercial-then Jimmy closes with the song Goodnight... a great 15 minute segment which gives us not only a look at early live TV, but a glimpse into what vaudeville must have been like .
