Willie Mays/Tallulah Bankhead interview (Merv Griffin Show 1966)
Here is a bizarre pairing if there ever was one- baseball legend Willie Mays and 30s film starlet Tallulah Bankhead two years before she died - it turns out she's a baseball fanatic. Willie talks about San Francisco, Sandy Koufax, his inimitable "basket" catch and then proceeds to knock some balls into audience! Merv Griffin had over 5000 guests appear on his show from 1963-1986. Footage from the Merv Griffin Show is available for licensing to all forms of media through Reelin' In The Years Productions. www.reelinintheyears.com
