Mae West: Red Skelton Show

It was 1 March 1960 and MAE WEST was a special guest on "The Red Skelton Show" on TV.
• • "The Red Skelton Show" was an American variety show that was a television staple for almost two decades — — from the early 1950s through the early 1970s.
• • You can listen to this on "Mae West On the Air," a CD that features several of Mae's rare recordings from 1934 — 1960 such as "The Red Skelton Show" — CBS-TV — 1 March 1960.
• • Born in Indiana, Red Skelton [1913 — 1997] was an American comedian who was best known as a top radio and TV star from 1937 to 1971. Skelton's show business career began in his teens as a circus clown and he went on to appearances that spanned from vaudeville, Broadway, films, radio, TV, night clubs, and casinos. During his career as a performer, he also pursued his interests as a serious fine arts painter.
