This documentary is worth watching. I miss seeing Johnny Carson on tv every night!
I miss him too. This was such a big part of my growing up. So glad to have this film about him.
A Benevolent, Hilarious Man
He filmed a documentary of going back to his (and my) hometown, Norfolk, NE. He put on a show for us as 8th graders. Since then, he has given so much money to our town for theaters, hospital wings, and so much more.
He was the King. Everyone else is just messing around.
