A few minutes with Carl Reiner on a 1967 episode of The Merv Griffin Show. The lady is Genevieve, a French singer and actress who did very little singing or acting, at least in this country. Jack Paar found her charming in a ditsy way and would have her on often, usually to make fun of her English and her unawareness of certain American customs. When Paar left the airwaves, Merv inherited her and she was frequently in his guest chair. This was back when people went on talk shows when they weren't plugging anything.
