Angels Moonwalking on The Tonight Show

Don't forget to pause the playlist on the bottom right side of the page to hear videos.


FADE IN:


INT. THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON STUDIO - NIGHT


JOHNNY CARSON and ED McMAHON are sharing CHUCKLES as the show airs.





JOHNNY CARSON (JC)


Moving right along.


ED McMAHON (EM)


Please welcome our first guest, Karl Malden.


As Karl shakes Johnny's and Ed's hands,


JC


Congratulations. We just heard of your nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Take a look why, folks.






JC


What was it like to work with Vivien Leigh?


KARL


She was an angel.


JC


Speaking of angels, we've got a live one tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, a warm welcome for Farrah Fawcett.


After Farrah hugs everyone,


JC


You're looking beautiful as ever.


FARRAH


Thank you, Johnny.


JC


Here's a clip of the show that catapulted you to fame. Let's take a look.







JC


And now you're sharing your battle with cancer in a documentary.


FARRAH


That's right. I hoped to share with others who have cancer to look right into its face -- not to be afraid.


JC


I'm sure I can speak for everyone of your extraordinary strength and courage.


To fervent APPLAUSE,


FARRAH


Thank you.


JC


We'll be right back after this commercial break.







The audience rises to their feet, CLAPPING enthusiastically, while Johnny attempts to moonwalk. With outstretched arm,


JC


Michael Jackson.







Sitting after his performance,


JC


What do you think of my moonwalk, Michael?


MICHAEL


With a few pointers, you'll be ready to star in my next video.


As they rise LAUGHING,


FARRAH


Mind if I join in?


JC


Why don't we all get in on the act.


Michael GIGGLES as the group moonwalks around the studio floor then breaks into free-form dancing. Johnny waves the audience to join in. Facing the camera,


JC


We hope you enjoyed tonight's show. Good night.

Hello Mary Lou said...

This was a brillent idea! Bravo!

Excellent idea! This is such a cool tribute.

That was the best tribute I've read.

I like the idea of staying out of the circus and making it more human and fun. To be honest I skip pretty much all of the tribute blogs because, let's face it, it's not pretty out there.

I wasn't a fan of either of them, but the bottom line is that they were people, and they suffered and died. I understand the fan thing, I really do (me of all people) but let's keep it dignified, huh?

Thanks for doing that, Petra!

Karl Malden was a favorite of mine. Loved him in the Streets of San Francisco. We lost a good one. :(
