Ed Really Had A Really Big Show... ***1/2
Toast of the Town was another Sunday night specialty of CBS. What a great show that was with Daily News syndicated columnist, Ed Sullivan, headlining a memorable show. The show was produced by his son-in-law Bob Precht.

Ed always gave an opportunity for has beens to be on. Who can forget Senor Wenses, the mime? He had the last laugh by dying over the age of 100 several years ago.

Remember the various imitations of Sullivan? The imitators would clasp their hands or stretch them. They'd always say that we have a really big "shoe" here.

Ed would never forget those stars of yesteryear from his audience. A brief segment would be devoted to having a star of the past stand up in the audience when their name was called. I remember Lillian Roth's name being called out and she stood up. This was either around the time that her biography "I'll Cry Tomorrow" came out or when the great film starring Susan Hayward came out.

What made "The Toast of the Town" so good was the variety of acts that came out. Obviously, Sullivan spared no expense in hiring show people.

The show began with a rousing dance routine with a great theme played. "The Toast of the Town" was a great part of the New York scene of the late 1950s and 1960s.
