An episode of Love and Marriage from 1959 with William Demarest and Jeanne Bal. He's a crusty widower with lifetime roots in Tin Pan Alley music publishing, and she's his up-to-date daughter. She invites him to live with her and her husband and two daughters (in a set reminiscent of Make Room for Daddy). Stubby Kaye is gopher-assistant-something who gets to sing some standards, as does Kay Armen as wise-cracking secretary. Demarest is the consummate professional, with perfect delivery no matter what role he's playing. Also an episode of Texaco Star Theatre with host Milton Berle from March of 1949. Fast-paced tv version of vaudeville, with Uncle Miltie letting fly with cornball jokes, with breaks for gymnasts, Guest Ethel Merman solos with I Get a Kick Out of You, and I Got Rhythm, then teams up with Berle in comedy bit. Warning: a skit with Keye Luke is heavy on ethnic stereotyping; and Berle introduces a dancer he discovered in a Greenwich Village nightclub as "this boy," making me think it was a child prodigy, but the dancer is African-American. A unique portion of the show was a trip down memory lane with several different songwriters or teams performing their compositions. Highlight was Maud Nugent singing "Sweet Rosie O'Grady," which she wrote in 1896.
