Lauren Bacall on The Dame Edna Experience

Hollywood icon Lauren Bacall died 10 days ago. Somehow, in the flood of tribute videos, I forgot about this appearance on The Dame Edna Experience , which is one of my favorite television shows of all time.

Tom Jones also appeared on this episode. I think it's my favorite episode of the show ever. Rest in peace, beautiful Ms. Bacall.

    Awesome dame and at what a change to see her riffing with someone of an equal wit. Good find.

    This was an awesome programme - it was revolutionary when it came out because until then all chat shows had been so reverential to their guests. Dame Edna put a depth charge under that. Not to mention the marvellous Madge the Badge.

    I wonder how many Hollywood agents blithely booked their charges on the show without doing the necessary research only to see the great and the good demolished. Graham Norton did something similar when he started on Channel 4 and I suspect a lot of agents got fired the next day after they were gleefully humiliated on telly.
