Dennis Day versus Bert Gordon (The Mad Russian)

This is a very short clip, with both (Gordon first) saying the trademark, "How do you do?"

How did Dennis do? Only you can decide.

The clip will start a few seconds after you press 'play'


  1. I always enjoyed Dennis Day's Bert Gordon impression (which was uncanny enough to convince more than one historian that Bert Gordon was guesting in a certain episode, but I found a bunch of Benny scripts from which confirm that it was Dennis). Other times (though rarely) a closing credit would even clarify that a specific impersonation (if not as clearly marked as such in the show's context) was done by Dennis (or by another actor, as for a show where Peter Lind Hayes impersonated Fred Allen, though need to check the script scans on that).

  2. Hi Andrew, thank you for the comment. I wholeheartedly agree that the Gordon impression is spot on.


Let me know what you think of this post or this site! It only take a few seconds and I'd really appreciate your comments...
