Movie fans know Dolly Read Martin as one of the stars of the cult classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, while game show fans remember her many appearances on such classic game shows as Tattletales and the CBS Match Game. The widow of comedian Dick Martin (Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In), to whom she was married for more than thirty years, Dolly was also one of the first Playboy Bunnies from London hired by Hugh Hefner to open the London Playboy Club in 1966, while in the United States she also worked in the Playboy Clubs in Chicago and New York.
We’ll talk to Dolly about how the loose, free-flowing vibe behind the scenes of Match Game was an integral part of the appeal of the show; why working as a Bunny at the Playboy Clubs was not always as glamorous at it would seem; the secret greeting that she and Harvey Korman shared with each other for more than thirty years; plus a few other surprises. Dolly Read Martin will join us in our second hour. Chris Korman will co-host.
Steve Randisi will join Phil Gries in our first hour for the third and final part of our special Sounds of Lost Television tribute to the short-lived but critically acclaimed NBC daytime talk show that Merv Griffin hosted between October 1962 and March 1963. This week’s segment will include highlights from Merv’s 1963 interview with Montgomery Clift—one of the actor’s rare appearances on a daytime talk/variety show—plus a clip from Jack Benny in which the iconic comedian revealed why he chose for his onscreen persona to remain age thirty-nine. Steve Randisi is the author of The Merv Griffin Show: The Inside Story, a complete history of The Merv Griffin Show on television.
