There used to be this God-awful show on either VH1 or E (or some other channel that I no longer watch) called Hollywood Babylon (imdb.com) that was hosted by Tony Curtis. They would take scandals involving very famous people and "reenact" them with unknown actors. I distinctly remember an episode involving John Lennon in which the actor playing John Lennon looked absolutely NOTHING like John Lennon.
Anywhoo... aside from that one minor hiccup, he had a pretty amazing run.

I saw that show when it came to Pittsburgh. The funniest parts of the show that have always stuck out in my mind was when there were two seperate incidents where Tony clearly forgot his line and ad-libbed something really hilarious instead. And watching the actors around him trying their hardest not to crack up made it even funnier.

I'm gonna have to rewatch the episode because I think I was all laughed out in the previous 90 minutes of NBC comedy. The one sequence that I loved was Tracy on the street trying to relate to regular people.
