| ahhh,...back to the good old days when David Letterman used to be funny
This special came out over 20 years ago, but I still laugh when I think about it! You see, unless you are an old codger like me, you don't realize that David Letterman and his show were once funny and original--not tired and dull like its become. And, in the early days they took a lot of chances. This was a home movie special where celebrities would bring in short movies they made for the show and they'd chat. It was really cute and well worth seeing--particularly the hilarious film by Michael Keaton where he discussed how his life is going downhill and he can't find work--even losing out in an audition for a horrible ad that featured the line "...I'd bit the head off any rat to get your business!!!". In the end, he lost it to a very slimy-looking Clint Howard. You really had to see it, but I doubt if it exists anywhere. What a shame.
