In this repeat of a classic GGACP episode, Gilbert and Frank chat with one of their favorite performers, actor-writer-director DAVE THOMAS, who looks back on his years with Second City (and "SCTV"), his transition to dramatic series writing, his admiration for Bob Hope and his working relationships with Dan Aykroyd, Eugene Levy, Tom Poston and Martin Short. Also, Richard Harris gets rough, Buck Henry storms out, Gilbert cuts the rug with John Travolta and Mel Blanc plays Dave's dad. PLUS: "The New Show"! Yasser Arafat hits the links! Dave praises Al Jaffee! And the comedy stylings of Max von Sydow!
