video Born on this date: Tony Randall

Tony RandallActor Tony Randall was born on Feb. 26, 1920. Many remember him best for his role as Felix Unger on The Odd Couple.

Here he is on The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, reciting “Polka,” a poem by Edith Sitwell, with instrumental music by William Walton, while forest creatures mince in the background. I find this delightful.
