I hope you’re as excited as I am to take a trip down memory lane and remember the good ol’ days of watching Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. I recently stumbled upon this gem of an interview with the one and only Jimmy Stewart from January 4, 1989, and let me tell you, it’s an absolute delight!
George H.W. Bush was just about to take office. A gallon of milk cost around $2.30, and a new Ford Taurus would set you back about $12,000. Movie tickets were around $4, and we were singing along to “Look Away” by Chicago. Life was simpler, and Johnny Carson was the king of late-night television.
We all remember Jimmy Stewart as the marvelous actor with that unmistakable voice. In this interview, he charms us with his wit, humor, and warm personality. It’s just like sitting in your living room, chatting with an old friend you’ve known for years.
Remember when Jimmy talks about learning to fly back in 1935? He shares the story of his first flight, thanks to his father befriending a barnstormer pilot. And how about the time he played an Austrian count in a Broadway show that didn’t last too long? Johnny and Jimmy have a good laugh about that one, reminiscing about the mishaps on stage during that unforgettable performance.
But it wasn’t all fun and games. They also discussed the important work being done by Jimmy’s daughter, Kelly, and her husband in Rwanda, helping to save the mountain gorillas from extinction. The passion and dedication of individuals like Kelly and her husband truly made a difference in the world.
So why not grab a cup of your favorite nostalgic beverage and head on over to YouTube to watch this delightful interview between two legends? You can find it on the MadlyOdd channel, and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Share this video with your friends because memories like these are meant to be enjoyed together.
