1963 | Hard at work

Johnny Carson works on his "Tonight Show" monologue in his office in New York City, March 22, 1963. A recent story in the Los Angeles Times said that he admitted that he could become quite nasty after a few drinks. Away from the camera, he was uncomfortable around people and was characterized in a 1969 biography as being a ruthless and cold womanizer who could be mean to his wives and petty in dealing with his business associates.
