You know you've made it when people begin to imitate you. You've really made it when other celebrities imitate you. Jimmy Stewart, Jerry Lewis and Martin Short imitate the great Bette Davis. Then Sammy Davis Jr. shows you some of his repertoire of imitations, singers and actors. He and Nat King Cole imitate one another. Wait til you see what Pearl Bailey has up her sleeve for the panel on I've Got a Secret.
