Bucket of Ice
It's been just a couple of weeks since the "Ice Bucket Challenge" took off in a big way, becoming a full-fledged Internet phenomenon in the name of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) awareness.
Johnny Carson wanted to book Elizabeth Taylor as a Tonight Show guest for 30 years, and in February 1992, just a few months before Carson ceded his late night throne and franchise to Jay Leno, the mercurial actress finally said yes. During the interview the two legends traded good-natured barbs about marriage and divorce (about which each of them knew more than most). It was a meeting of Hollywood royalty, and it's one of the fascinating old-school celebrity chats to be featured this month on Carson on TCM, a new weekly series that compiles the iconic late night host's best-ever interviews. It premieres Monday at 8 p.m. on Turner Classic Movies.
