Comedy Nostalgia: Intro to Texaco Star Theater with Milton Berle


If you're old enough to remember the Texaco Star Theater starring Milton Berle, you'll feel a twinge of nostalgia as you watch the "men of Texaco, who work from Maine to Mexico..."

These four always introduced the weekly show and raised the curtain on Uncle Milty as he emerged from behind the curtain in a silly costume. 

This video clip is just a tease, with a few seconds from Milty's opening sketch. If you're hungry for a full episode, here's a link to the show that aired on November 29, 1949.

Enjoy!
