Johnny Carson, 30-year career Johnny Carson as host of “The Tonight Show” ended with his retirement in 1992, and died in 2005 but is finally back – in digital format.
About 3,500 hours of Files’ tonight’s clips, which were buried for decades in a Kansas salt mine (No, really!), Have been digitized and uploaded to an online archive search, reports the New York Times .
The archive, overseen by former ‘Tonight’ producer (and nephew Carson) Jeff Sotzing, live in JohnnyCarson.com. Will present all the existing images of landmark Carson 1962-1992 tenure, which continues to set the tone for the evening of comedy today. Much of the first 10 years of the series is lost, but in the early ’70s, Carson renegotiated his contract with NBC and has the rights to their redundancy, the tapes which are stored 650 meters underground in a mine Salt in Hutchinson, Kansas. It took a year and 2,000 employees working to digitize the tapes, including the handful of survivors of the early shows and every show from Carson 1973-1992.
At first, the file will only be accessible to the media, and only for the purpose of finding and paying for the clips of the license. Eventually, however, the database will be searchable by the general public, Sotzing told the Times.
Currently, anyone can visit the place of purchase and compilations of DVD is to see at home. The site is also flowing around two dozen classic clips, including the first time unknown Jerry Seinfeld stand-up appearance in the program in 1981, a sketch restaurant with Carson and Betty White, with the introduction from 1977 of future host Jay Leno tonight, a little fun since 1983 participation by Albert Brooks and a Speak & Spell, and yes, the famous Ed Ames tomahawk draw, which earned him one of the biggest battles sustained audience laughter in the history of television.
