Strange Bedfellows: Jackie Gleason & Julie Andrews



Here's an interesting little curio: a 1974 television special pairing Julie Andrews with The Great One, Jackie Gleason. An interesting rundown of this strange gem can be found on Film Threat. The YouTube poster notes that Jackie Gleason flew to London for this production, making his first flight in twenty years. This may be the last time Jackie reprised signature characters such as "The Poor Soul," "Reggie Van Gleason III" and "Joe The Bartender."

One odd highlight: a Honeymooners sketch with Julie attempting to play the Ed Norton role. Sheeeesh!
