Royal Reception

Mike Douglas and Petula Clark get all dresssed up to begin her co-host week on The Mike Douglas Show, starting Monday, December 8. With various other British kings and queens "looking on" (including George III, against whom the colonies revolted in 1776, at right,) Mike wears the outfit of William IV (1830-37) and Petula appears as Alexandra (1901-10.) Petula's five-day reign on the show includes a lot of great musical numbers, and guest stars such as John Davidson, Tavares, John Byner, Anne Meara, Andy Griffith, Edgar Winter and many others.
