Details: Rodgers' friends and colleagues pay tribute to him in this long-unseen special. Among the original Broadway cast members reprising the songs they introduced are Vivienne Segal ("Bewitched" from "Pal Joey") and Alfred Drake ("People Will Say We're in Love" from "Oklahoma!"). Vera Zorina dances "Rodgers in Three Quarter Time," a ballet created expressly for the show set to three Rodgers waltzes, and Mary Martin (makes her first TV appearance) and sings "Wonderful Guy" as Rodgers himself accompanies her on piano.
