The Joe Franklin Show with guest Al Lewis (1993)

This great looking, grainy, piece of film is an extremely entertaining documentary on socialist Grampa Munster and it's marvelous. The film as a '93 copyright but looks like it was filmed in the eighties. Also go here to read an insightful interview with Al Lewis to learn more about his life-long involvement in social justice and various political causes.

The Joe Franklin Show opening sequence (1977) - Footage Offline - 10/20/07

Joe Franklin is regarded as the first person to host a television talk show. The station was the primitive WJZ-TV in 1950 which would become New York's well known WABC. You may recall his showbizzy office appearing in the documentary The Aristorcrats. This is some hokey footage from latter-day and less notable incarnations of his show.
