Originally aired on NBC under the title Swing Out, Sweet Land, this 1970 television special features movie legend John Wayne as the host of a flag waving journey through American history. Join Wayne as he takes an involving trip into history with a little help from the likes of Jack Benny, Lorne Greene, Dean Martin, and Michael Landon. Dan Rowan and Dick Martin make a special appearance as the Wright Brothers, Dennis Weaver and Celeste Holm portray the parents of Abraham Lincoln, and Phyllis Diller makes a bid for the presidency as a 19th century candidate. Special musical guests Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, and Roy Clark all drop in to sing a patriotic tune, and with additional appearances by William Shatner, Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, and Red Skelton this is one show that the entire family can enjoy.~Jason Buchanan
