The Pontiac Show: Phil Silvers on Broadway (1959)

The Phil Silvers Show was very theatrical for a television sitcom. Silvers, of course, had years of stage experience from vaudeville to Top Banana, and Bilko was filmed live - in sequence - without any retakes. So it was natural that they would take the show to the stage for a turn.



The Final Phil Silvers Interview

The beautiful Phil Silvers talks about The Phil Silvers Show and all the hookers that Joe E. Ross married in this interview that occurred shortly before his death in 1985. Not sure where the footage is from but it appears to be from 1983 or so.
