James Stewart reads a poem
This is a special moment in TV-history, when James Stewart read a poem about his dog at Johnny Carson's talk show. It's so very moving. Part of that comes from the audience reactions. In the beginning you hear them laugh and applaud, but then they go silent, because the poem changes tone. Allegedly this was one of only three times that Johnny Carson showed any emotions in his show.
