Gentleman: During the warm-up, they said that you haven't done television for a long time, and what was the last show that you did, if any?

I can recall. I have been interviewed, like for a newsreel or if people come to Lauderdale on a premiere or something like that, but this is the first time I have ever been in front of--would you believe, an audience in my life.
