Jackie Robinson - What's My Line?

Jackie Robinson was still very much in-demand after he retired from playing Dodger baseball.  In November of 1969, he appeared on the popular television program "What's My Line?"

After the blindfolded contestants try to figure-out the name of the mystery guest, Jackie spends some time talking about his career.  Even here, four years after Branch Rickey had died, he credits "Mr. Rickey" for the role he played in Robinson's life (and the impact it had on Major-League Baseball).
