Jack LaLanne - RIP - 96 years old

From Mark Evanier's Blog -

Here's Jack LaLanne in his prime...but talking and not exercising. That was one of the keys to the man's success: He was a good talker and he knew how to connect with his audience, which was usually housewives. For a decade or two, he did his show every Monday through Friday, largely ad-libbed — and for many years, live. It was just him and his dog and a few props and the cameras...and I seem to recall that in the fifties, it was usually just one camera. Today, you wouldn't do an exercise video without music, costumes, scenery, dancers, fancy camerawork, etc. Jack's show was just Jack and it worked...
