Dick Cavett discuses the recent assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy with his guests. A very somber and interesting program quite different from the usual Dick Cavett Show as Mr. Cavett eludes to at the beginning.
Groucho Marx was a frequent guest on show and appeared on all off its various incarnations. This episode, in which he's the sole guest for the hour, marked his only appearance on the short-lived summer prime-time show.
Dick Cavett interviews Joan Rivers; NY Jets quarterback Joe Namath; and then Congressman from NY Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Sirens can be heard through-out the show which Cavett and guests allude to. Cavett mentions that his show is up for cancellation. Joe Namath talks about Bachelor 3 and the Rozelle investigation; Powell talks about his battle with the Supreme Court for his Congress seat.
