Fred and Ethel Mertz Perform at The Mayflower

Here’s a rare film I came across on YouTube.

Fred and Ethel Mertz (William Frawley and Vivian Vance) from I Love Lucy performed “Carolina in the Morning” at the 40th anniversary dinner for the Anti-Defamation League. This was held in the Mayflower Hotel in 1953.
