Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Dick Cavett

If you ever run into Dick Cavett, don’t call him an intellectual. He’ll explain and reprimand me for even suggesting that. Cavett was a popular TV talk show host. He interviewed all of the big names of the time. Lucille ball, Marlon Brando, George Harrison, Richard Burton and hundreds more. He’ll talk about some of his best and worst conversations. Cavett was also a writer for Jack Paar and came up with his famous line, “Here they are, Jayne Mansfield” when introducing the well-endowed actress. Dick also wrote for Merv Griffin and Johnny Carson on the “Tonight Show.” Clips from Cavett’s TV show have been used in the films “Annie Hall,” “Forrest Gump” and “Apollo 13.” You may have seen him on “Saturday Night Live”, “Kate & Allie and “Cheers.”   Dick was on television in the United States for five decades.
