Don Knotts Goes Bowling - Video Offline 1/13/08

I can think of few things that go better than Don Knotts and nineteen seventies bowling alleys. This is from the hard to find How to Frame a Figg (1971). This scene features Frank Welker (Freddy on Scoody-Doo) and somebody I thought was Joe Flynn. This is the only movie Don Knotts co-wrote.

The Dean Martin Show with guests Don Adams and Don Rickles 10/25/07 Footage Offline

Don and Don were both stand-up comics and best of friends. Rickles was a regular guest star on Get Smart and Don was a regular at Rickles' gigs. Both played the big rooms in Vegas in the sixties. However, unlike Rickles, Don Adams despised performing in front of a live audience. He continued to do it after the success of Get Smart because the money was suddenly so good. However, as you can read in this piece, he tended to phone his Vegas gigs in - stealing material from other comedians.
