Ervin Jr. • Roger Staubach • Roger Williams • Barbara Streisand • Natalie Wood • Jack Benny • Danny Thomas • Bob Hope • Eva Marie Saint • Ed McMahon • Carol Burnett • Peggy Fleming • Sammy Davis Jr. • Sonny & Cher • Jose Feliciano • Carroll O' Connor • Ann - Margret • Liza • Walter Cronkite • Hank Aaron • Liberace • John Wayne • Richard Nixon • Gregory Peck • The 5th Dimension - Ron, Billy, Marilyn, Florence, Lamonte • Dean Martin • Lucy • Jonathan Winters • Karen & Richard Carpenter • Zsa Zsa • Frank Sinatra • Phyllis Diller • Mary Tyler Moore • Tom Bradley • Ronald Reagan • Jerry Lewis • Mario Machado • Steve Allen • Rock Hudson • Henry Fonda • Bobby Riggs • Pat Boone
