At 91, Charlotte Rae has no intentions of slowing down, as this interview will show. Charlotte began her career in Wisconsin and quickly conquered New York appearing in such musicals as Three Wishes for Jamie, The Threepenny Opera, Lil Abner, Pickwick, The Littlest Revue, and many others. Plus Charlotte was a pioneer of  live television having appeared in The Philco Television Playhouse, The Colgate Comedy Hour, The DuPont Show of the Week, and many others. Now, over a crackly phone connection, Charlotte sits down with Rob for a quick chat.

 

Charlotte pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she discovered a new talent named Sheldon Harnick, what it was like going to school with Paul Lynde, and why Charlotte always wanted to be a serious actress.

 

Also, Charlotte shines the spotlight on Michael Kidd, Lotte Lenya, and Golda Meir!
