King Kaiser’s Comedy Cavalcade goes on in minutes. But guest star Alan Swann is exiting the building. Fast. “I’m not an actor. I’m a movie star!” he bellows in stark fear. He just found out the show is LIVE!
Directed by Richard Benjamin and inspired by incidents from comedy legend Mel Brooks’ early career, My Favorite Year is a Golden Age revisited, a zany, misty-eyed tribute to TV’s early days. Academy Award recipient* Peter O’Toole plays Swann. Once a swashbuckling movie idol whose face was plastered on fan magazines, Swann is now mostly plastered. And it falls to Cavalcade’s rookie writer (Mark Linn-Baker) to keep him on the sober and narrow. Don’t touch that dial.

Mark Linn-Baker plays Benji Stone, the Mel Brooks character whose minding of the alcoholic matinee idol is a full time job and then some. O'Toole's Alan Swann (the Flyn character) is absolutely mad and impulsive and all enthusiastic for his first TV appearance until he finds out it is to be done live which causes him to fall apart. There are many memorable moments. My favorite is when Swann gives up his flirtation with a beautiful young woman in order to give an old fan something to cherish by dancing with her. You will find your own.
