Apologies for botching the name -- in my haste, and without the
videotape to hand, I grabbed for whatever likely-sounding name my poor
brain could muster.

Thanks for the correction!

Trivia question -- what two (at least) Shakespeare plays did the Beatles
perform? Kind of? At least, excerpts thereof? From about this time
(i.e., 1964)?

"Comparisons are odorous" (there, I've tethered my upcoming remark to
Shakespeare).  In the spirit of giving actors their due: Redd Foxx is
one of the most respected comedians of American situation comedy, and
for his audiences, there is no superior!
