The Dick Cavett Show [#5] (talk/interview)

    (PBS Nighttime, 1977 - 1981)

     This was the fifth of several talk and variety shows hosted
     by the genial witty intellectual comedian from Nebraska, who
     was a devoted fan and friend of Groucho Marx in his later
     years, and a friend of Woody Allen from his early career;

     After a two-year break from series TV, Dick Cavett returned
     to host this fondly-remembered show which came to PBS after he
     had been involved with variety and talk-variety formats on CBS
     and on ABC; it was a return to focus on the more intimate talk-
     interview format of a single guest, which was his forte]


Opening Theme: "Overture (to 'Candide')"

    [above is the title as listed in the ASCAP database; variations:
     aka: "Overture To Candide";
     aka: "Overture";
     aka: "Candide Overture";

     this is an Overture to what is described in copyright
     records as "Candide -- a comic operetta based on 
     Voltaire's satire"; The overture is part of a 1955 score 
     originally filed under the name: "Music for 'Candide'";

     Although only Leonard Bernstein is listed in the filing
     for copyright below, ASCAP also lists a number of others
     in its database as credited composers of the Overture; but
     these people in reality were involved in writing lyrics, or
     the book or other aspects of the stage musical production]
