Jerry Lewis hosts the Tonight Show while Johnny's away. Bob Hope was the guest. Classic. From June, 1970. Original commercials included....including an NBC promo for an airing of "Frankie & Johnny" @ 9:37 mark.

That was kind of tough to watch. Jerry is a helluva entertainer but being a host of a talk show does not agree with him at all. You can see Hope try his best to side step through Jerry's gags just to get to the finish line. Jerry calling Bob "Robert".... :facep: Bob comes off very professional, but Jerry can't find his footing. The audience refuses to take his side during the show. I wouldn't be surprised if he alienated them earlier in the show before Bob came on.

Nevertheless, always good to see two legends and that woman in the beginning was right: "Two of the greatest on the stage."
