Red Skelton Show

Of Mouth and Men - Season 12, Episode 13 - 01 Jan 1963 - Guest: Martha Raye - Main Comedy Sketch: "Of Mouth and Men". Capitalizing on the publicity surrounding the yet-to-be-released Elizabeth Taylor version of Cleopatra, the sketch casts Martha Raye as an aggressively amorous Queen of the Nile, who carries a torch for the sublimely indifferent Roman slave Nauseous (Red). Tommy Noonan plays Caesar in this sketch, which is highlighted by an outrageous slave-auction sequence (with a patently obvious dummy standing in for Skelton during one slapstick bit!)
