Watch Judd Apatow’s Doc on the Friendship Between Don Rickles & Bob Newhart

Judd Apatow contributes a touchingly observed documentary short about the lifelong friendship between Don Rickles and his wife and Bob Newhart and his wife.

It's especially compelling considering their acts were so diametrically opposed, yet in their personal lives, they were absolutely devoted to each other.

The couples frequently traveled together and even lived within walking distance of each other at the end of Rickles' life.

Sadly, since this was shot, Newhart's wife of 60 years, Ginnie, died at 82 in April. Rickles died at 90 in 2017 and his wife Barbara died at 84 in 2021.

The last man standing is Newhart, who is 94.
