Oh, I really enjoyed that. His modesty almost makes him an impossible guest ... I mean, it inhibits him from answering their inquiries accurately. Was it customary to try to disguise one's voice? I'm a big fan of David Niven, too, especially his pre-war stuff. The ring-kisser. The other two are Arlene Francis and Bennett Cerf, not the Cerf we all know. They mention Mendes-France.I just wonder how much of it was scripted ... and how much of it was genuine, old-fashioned American wit.
