"An era lost, her gloriously recaptured."
Jack Parr helped establish the benchmark for TV talkshow hosts, with pioneering work carried out on "The Tonight Show" and his own "Jack Parr Program." This overview of his career offers highlights from legendary interviews with stars such as Woody Allen, Fidel Castro, John F. Kennedy, Bill Cosby, and many others. It also includes some of the earliest televised footage of Allen and Cosby doing their standup routines. Parr always knew how to draw out the best in his subjects, and never shied away from a provocative question. Sadly he passed away on January 27, 2004, but this comprehensive release stands as testament to his stature in the entertainment world.
