Don Rickles

I just watched the doumentary about him on HBO. More people talking about how funny he was than footage of him actually being funny. Plenty of clips of cheap sentiment though. I guess I’m not his biggest fan, although it is impressive how many famous people have championed him, from Frank Sinatra to Jackie Gleason to Johnny Carson to Roger Corman and Martin Scorsese. Biggest take-away: the sheer range and volume of vacations Don Rickles and his wife have taken with Bob Newhart and his wife. It is breathtaking.
