Don Rickles – Speechless

This is a great clip of WMAR-TV reporter Susan White turning the tables on Don Rickles during the Yugoslavian shoot of KELLY’S HEROES (1970) — although she identifies it here as being called WARRIORS — and this is the only time I think I’ve ever seen Rickles completely rendered silent, and to boot by a woman.

  1. That’s hysterical! Great clip. Thanks, Christian.

      Apparently Rickles wouldn’t let any of the journalists get out a complete question so she showed ’em. Even Eastwood and the cast were impressed.

    Rickles wasn’t “rendered speechless.” Like the great comedian he is, he recognized a great bit when he heard it, and played straight man.
