Don Ho Special
Don Ho's opening night performance at the Cocoanut Grove in Hollywood was broadcast as a television special. Petula was spotted in the audience and was called up on stage and coaxed into performing Downtown. She gamely did so, losing one of her dangling earings en route back to her seat.
Variety excerpt: |
. . .Opening night [Don} managed to get a few of our top names up on stage, and they actually performed. Were they mesmerized by Don's magnetic charm? Who knows. We just know that he's a lot of fun rolled up with mucho entertainment, and Ricardo Montalban, Pat Boone, Petula Clark and Roger Smith, all performed for the amiable, relaxed Don Ho before they knew what they were doing.
