Oh my God, Ive made a bad impression already, Dick Cavett says apologetically after I ever-so-gently correct his pronunciation of my name. When I suggest that I should be the one worried about interviewing one of the all-time great interviewers, hes quick to put me at ease.
Youd better put that aside and out of your mind, he tells me. I cant detect any faults in you so far.
Ive reached the 83-year-old talk show legend by phone at his home in Connecticut just a few days before the new documentary, Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes, is set to air on HBO. Muhammad Ali made a total of 14 appearances on The Dick Cavett Show between 1968 and 1975, and over that time the the two men developed what Cavett describes as a bro romance.
The film, which first premiered at the SXSW film festival nearly two years ago, uses footage of those appearances to tell the story of Alis career, with Cavetts knack for compelling storytelling present throughout. He still gets emotional when recalling the time the boxing icon came on his show after a rare loss and called the host his main man.
Over the course of our conversation, Cavett opens up about his relationship with Ali, compares Richard Nixons resignation over Watergate to Donald Trumps impeachment acquittal, and weighs in on the late-night TV landscape more than 50 years after his show debuted.

Dick Cavett? They are really digging deep now to find anyone who will bash Trump.
I thought he died.
Dick who? Who cares?
Just going by that title alone; Just what crimes by Trump is he referring to? I guess I should read the article.
WHAT a DICK! There were NO CRIMES.
Abuse of Congress.
See my post of Jane Fonda.
Dick Cavity is UNKNOWN and irrelevant to anyone under 50.
NO ONE CARES about what he thinks.
You beat me to it!
Because there were NO CRIMES!
“I thought he died.”
He obviously did because what he supposedly said just had to come from a dead brain.
Of course, it’s hard to differentiate between a dead brain and your typical progressive logic when liberals talk.
Well thanks for clearing that up.....dick.
its very simple. Trump didn’t commit any crimes.
It seems leftists have their own brand of justice nowadays. They can accuse you of breaking any “law” they invent.
Congress deserves abuse. A lot of it!
