CAESAR'S HOUR {EXCERPT: BULLETS OVER BROADWAY} (TV)

Summary

A complete segment from a single broadcast of "Caesar's Hour," a series of comedy/variety programs hosted by Sid Caesar. This skit, "Bullets Over Broadway," concerns "Moose" (Sid Caesar), a prohibition-era gangster whose heart is stolen by a cigarette girl, Moxie Hart (Nanette Fabray). Singing of her belief that "You Can't Put a Price Tag on Love," she refuses his attentions because he lacks "couth." In order to win her love, Moose hires a professor (Carl Reiner) to teach him couth. The girl lands up falling for the professor and in the end, though a gangster, Moose is a gentleman enough to sacrifice his life for them in a shootout. Includes commercials.
