Weird though, according to a NY Times review, it said CNR had announced that he quit as director before the opening. Not sure why he’d quit but come across as though he was with the show to the end.

you could see how disappointed - maybe very depressed - he was, but he put on a “brave” face. There was a minute in the middle where you could just tell he truly was sad about it, then he switched back into comedy. It was funny, but kinda tough to watch. I’m sure he was in pain but didn’t want people to know.

I knew of him growing up as a kid from watching Match Game. Much later I saw him in a little theater doing Save It For The Stage. Side note-while standing outside waiting for the doors to open Lonnie Anderson showed with a guest. Anyway, Save It For The Stage was an autobiographical one man show. Very entertaining, in part of his show he explained the differences of what actors had to go through to become actors in his day as opposed to modern days. I realized what a talented actor he truly was. Glad I went to see his show, Reilly died a few years later.

Carson was both independently funny, and a great straight man. CNR was a funny man, with a good heart. His friends, from what I've read, truly loved him. Paul Lynde seemed uncomfortable in his own skin, and by all accounts, was just a nasty man.

very funny man, self depreciating humor, his wig, his clothes, being gay, all hilariously disarming. and what a quick wit, match game was like the number 1 day time show for 3 years straight, a massive hit and cnr was a big reason for that, not only hilarious but very warm and responsive to the contestants.

Question... If the play was written in cement and not allowed to be changable then why in the hell even have a director for the play in the first place. Just let the author direct it to their liking and save the cost of the director. Does that make any sense?

@sfogjm Thank you for the taking the time to respond with a real nice reply.

First, with most new shows, the author is eager to make rewrites in order to improve the show. It's difficult to know if the show works as written until performed before public audiences. When the author might be too close to the material to objectively recognize what is problematic about the script, the director can be very good at identifying what changes are necessary to achieve the desired effect. Directors also have many other responsibilities either by direct involvement or delegation to talented specialists. Some examples are honing performances to achieve a unified presentation, how the performers move on stage, pacing of the storytelling, sets, costumes, lighting, and more. Unlike Hollywood, it's true that with plays script changes can only be made with the author's consent.

As a youngster in Hollywood, perhaps 35 years ago, I was interested in learning to be an actor. I heard that Mr. Reilllly was teaching a class and I wondered if I could afford it. I called the phone number listed in the ad in the local theatre rag (Dramalogue) and left a message. I was VERY surprised when Mr. Reilly himself returned my call. As it happened, I couldn't afford even the very reasonable fee for his class, but we spoke for perhaps 15 minutes and the personal interest he showed in me and his genuine charm are fond memories.
DD Burrows
DD Burrows پیش 7 ماه
I thought about taking his class, about 30 years ago, which was held on Wednesday evenings in a small theater in the Valley. I was so tempted. I’m sorry I didn’t make that call, that would have been a huge treat, if I had gotten to speak with CNR. Thanks for telling your story.

I loved him in the Ghost and Mrs. Muir, and I saw him on game shows like Hollywood Squares (great name, huh?). It had a great collection of wits and characters. His sense of humor appealed to me, and things like that sort of become a part of you when you are a child and absorbing everything of value.

Interesting description when he mentioned Match Game and Johnny asked if he meant the game show. Reilly said "It's quiet, it's daytime, nobody knows about it. But it's good money" How things change. He could never have imagined then he'd be adored by generations to come for Match Game alone. The play is long forgotten, but thank God for TV and reruns!

I once had the pleasure of being personally entertained by Charles Nelson Reilly. Let me explain. In the mid-1970s, I was a student at NYU and one night decided to go to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see/hear Verdi's Falstaff at the Metropolitan Opera. I couldn't afford those hefty ticket prices, so I got a student standing room ticket for a few dollars. During the intermission, a woman approached me and said they had an unused ticket/seat available next to them if I wanted to join them. I thanked the woman and joined them toward the front, middle Orchestra section. Curiously, in our particular seating section, everyone stayed in their seats during the intermission, and the reason soon became abundantly clear. Seated in the row directly behind me, and to my right, was Charles Nelson Reilly and his male companion. Charles regaled us with hilarious stories, witty observations, and Charles Nelson Reillyisms that are difficult to describe in words. Although the Falstaff opera performance was great, this was, hands-down, the most entertaining and memorable intermission I've ever experienced in the hundreds and hundreds of shows I've seen in my life.

That's an amazing story. You see you just don't get celebrities doing that anymore. This was before celebrity culture and armed bodyguard culture. Before people were frightened after the murder of John Lennon or mass shootings. It was once common to see actors and musicians joining crowds among the public in cities across America. Today this would almost be impossible to happen without having a major security risk.

I love the banter between these two. Carson was a master of conversation. Most hosts think THEY need to take the lead, but Johnny understood that he just needs to sit back, LISTEN and watch the magic happen. And how wonderful that a guest is willing to come on and talk about failure? Stars today are gagged by their PR people, everything is so sanitized.

One of the nights Charles was in New York in 1979 for the play he's discussing, I spent the night in his house with his house-sitter Michael. It was a beautiful home - probably still is - up in the Hollywood Hills, with an incredible view of Hollywood and LA below from the swimming pool deck. His neighbors were Richard Deacon on one side and Abigail van Buren on the other. He had a prop sign from The Ghost and Mrs. Muir in his living room, reading "Claymore Gregg Real Estate". One entire wall was filled with record albums, mainly opera and classical. His bed had black satin sheets, and there was a photo of him greeting Queen Elizabeth next to the light switch in the bedroom, as I recall. So yeah - I slept in Charles Nelson Reilly's bed - although he wasn't in it at the time.

Indeed. I used to work with a guy who was, if you can picture this, a cross between George Bush Senior and CNR. He was a dead ringer for George Sr but acted JUST like CNR, without acting. Like, that was his natural behavior and he always had us in stitches without even trying. There was a one man show with CNR on Netflix years ago. I don't think it's there anymore. Let me see if I can find it on IRitem... Yep! Here's a playlist of it: iritem.info/cd/fy-lm-h-y/i5SYhLearanNpas.html It's not only funny but surprisingly touching in places too.

I'm trying to figure out the timing. The play opened (and closed) April 29. But a NYT article dated April 28 states that CNR resigned as director and asked to have his name removed the previous day (April 27). So if he resigned on the 27th how was he still the director 2 days later?
Mark Thomas
Mark Thomas پیش 7 ماه
I subscribe to Newspapers.com and I also saw that he had taken his name off as director. I guess he felt some ownership for the play still, but maybe he was just employing some good strategy. In New York he could disavows a turkey and in LA he could turn it into a great comedy bit on Carson. I also found at least one good review of the play but only when it was in previews.

@Sheldon Helms I wasn't judging him. Fact is, he was a dark individual and even his closest friends say as much. I like Paul Lynde - always have and always will. I have great sympathy for the man and am sorry that his life was so bad, but my feelings and his friends love of him doesn't change the fact. I have watched several programs about Lynde over the years and never heard the story that you tell...I'm not saying that I doubt it, but would be interested to know your source of information on that.
Sheldon Helms
Sheldon Helms پیش 3 ماه
@Michael Jay Um, several police officers were down on the street (it was on the 8th floor, so they could clearly see him), and they watched the entire thing play out. He had been drinking, and he decided to do a silly trick by walking on the ledge. He lost his balance and fell, and Paul did EVERYTHING he could to save him. He held on as long as he could, and Paul told him to grab his neck, but he lost his grip and fell to his death. A lot of that darkness in Paul Lynde came from grief. He lost his brother in WWII, his mother soon after (probably from the shock of finally hearing that her MIA son had been officially declared dead), his father less than a year after that. Then, this young man's death. When you add that to the stress of being gay in Hollywood in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, is it any wonder he turned to drinking? Then, some judgemental asshole on the Internet comes along and judges him?
sfogjm
sfogjm پیش 6 ماه
I think its public knowledge that Paul Lynde was personally very unhappy which was magnified by his drinking. He was often very rude to others and seemed disturbed that he often got work that he didn't feel was commensurate with his talent. Charles Nelson Reilly expressed disappointment that his career was limited due to gay prejudice but it didn't seem to manifest into the bitterness that Lynde seem to demonstrate. By the way, what I've read indicated that Lynde was not responsible for the death of his companion falling from a San Francisco hotel window.

Written by Ira Levin, directed by Charles Nelson Reilly, and featuring actors Julie Harris, Jack Weston and Rene Auberjonois, "Break A Leg" should have had a reasonable run. But that's theatre!
Big Huge
Big Huge پیش 7 ماه
From what I've quickly researched, Reilly was frustrated that -- unlike all other stage productions -- there was no give and take with the author about changing or examining trouble spots in a new play. The reason for tours is to see how the material plays and if similar problems appear, they get ironed out before its Broadway run. It had to be frustrating. It also appears this play wasn't produced a second time outside, maybe, community theater. It's a shame. I would have loved to see it.

In 1979, he directed Ira Levin's play Break a Leg on Broadway. Despite the previous year's success of Levin's Deathtrap, Break a Leg closed after one performance. He was 48 when he did this appearance, so kudos for not lying about his age.

@Will Martell I saw him in concert once. I don't even listen to Country music and he was effing brilliant! At one point he and three other musicians in the band broke out fiddles and started playing in perfect unison. I was completely blown away by his performance. It's still one of my favorite concerts to this day.

Roy Clark is not underrated, he was and is still considered of the best guitar/banjo players. Not to mention he could sing and play anything with strings including fiddle and was pretty funny.

@hungfao Agreed! Among those in the field, his peers, I bet he's ranked in the top 5.

What ? Roy Clark is one of the most revered respected and well known guitarists EVER ! Maybe a 15 - 20 year old doesn't know him, but anyone else with a brain does. He was on HeeHaw every week for a hundred years and every show on tv. Roy Clark is a legend !!!
