Getting Personal: An Intimate Interview with Red Skelton DVD: Red Skelton at age 80 reveals intimate moments from his personal life in this rare 1992 interview with Canadian talk show host Dini Petty. Red reminisces how comedian Ed Wynn started him on the road to comedy. He explains why later in his career he would no longer talk on the phone and how his fear of having water thrown on him come to be. He shares that he only slept three hours each night and would paint clowns until daylight and then write short story outlines, musical compositions and songs, along with a love letter to his wife every morning. His impromptu "Clem Kadiddlehopper," "San Fernando Red" and "Gertrude and Heathliffe" impersonations will keep you in laughter and tears. This is a must see for Red Skelton fans of all ages! 47 min/color. Dolby Digital.

Jamie Farr & Red Skelton: A Very Special Friendship DVD: The beloved actor, comedian and director Jamie Farr of M*A*S*H fame takes you inside his very special friendship with America's Clown Prince, Red Skelton. In this rare interview, Jamie relates how Red not only encouraged him, but taught him about comedy, courtesy, and life. When Jamie returned from a tour of duty with the Army, it was Red who encouraged him to return to show business. Jamie again became a regular on Red's highly successful weekly show, appearing in several episodes before striking out in his own. In recounting many stories and insights into Red Skelton, Jamie's own humanity and love of life are revealed for his many fans. Included on this DVD are three 'lost episodes' of The Red Skelton Show featuring Jamie Farr, which have not been seen by the public since they first aired on CBS.
