Heading back to the Mystery Guest segment, the contestant here is a fairly young Michael Caine from 1966 -- half a century ago! -- right after Alfie had been released. Given how outgoing and gregarious he's become over the decades on talk shows, it's fun to watch him here pretty low-key and almost reticent.
I've told my story about my one run-in with the fellow, and though I won't repeat it, your can read the tale here. The short version is that it took place on the set of the movie, The Island, and though he had every reason to be annoyed that I was in the way, he was absolutely charming, easy going and couldn't have cared less. So, yes, as much as I liked him before, I've liked him even more ever since...
Rather than watch the full episode, if you want to jump to the appearance, it comes around 15:30.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
