"These are excerpts from an exclusive 30-minute interview Merv did with comic genius Gene Wilder in the summer of 1979. Gene agreed to do the interview only if Merv closed his set. Gene tells stories about his family, his upbringing, his early career and his personal life and philosphy. Merv Griffin had over 5000 guests appear on his show from 1963-1986. Footage from the Merv Griffin Show is available for licensing to all forms of media through Reelin' In The Years Productions. www.reelinintheyears.com."
