Cavett remembers Arthur Godfrey

Back in 2007 I wrote a little piece about Arthur Godfrey wondering to myself why someone didn't write a book about him or present a television movie with him as subject. Well it seems Dick Cavett maybe has done that one better. He has written in length about the old redhead and has included part of a televised interview.
Cavett's piece, and the ensuing letters from his viewers and readers are half the fun. People have not forgotten Godfrey and Cavett does us a favor by bringing it all back to us. Click here to read and view Dick and Arthur.

I loved the Fred Allen quote in Cavett's article:

“When Arthur’s not on the air, he’s in it” — Fred Allen

Only Fred could have come up with something like that.
