Retro Friday: Stephanie Edwards and "Monty Python"

Before "Good Morning America," there was "A.M. America," ABC's short-lived morning show hosted by Bill Beutel and Stephanie Edwards. In this 1975 clip, Beutel is out, but the cast of "Monty Python" joins Edwards to co-host on the set. If that's not surreal enough for you (and trust me, it's surreal), the mayhem is contrasted by a somber Peter Jennings, who anchors the morning show's newscast -- and reports the impending collapse of Saigon.
