A wide shot of the audience wherein FZ can be seen whispering in the ear to his left neighbour appears at 22:15 and again at 41:51 in the movie, and then again, right before FZ's whispering, at 83:41 (thanks to Javier Al Fresco for spotting it!).
A close-up of the future Sparks can be seen at 4:39 in the film.
This was the night when the all-time greats of rock 'n roll, traditional blues, country western and folk rock came together for one of the biggest nights in the history of show business! [...] And Johnny Legend was there for the entire filming! (USA, 1966, 93 min., b/w, Blu-ray)
This is a compilation which includes parts of the T.N.T. Show and its predecessor, the T.A.M.I. Show, but it's not clear if FZ actually appears in it.

The American TAMI rock and pop concert of 1965, directed by Steve Binder, and the 1966 TNT concert directed by Larry Peerce, have long been held as sensational remembrances of the greatest era of rock and pop.
Here, side by side, were the Beach Boys and the Rolling Stones, the Ronettes and the Supremes, Tina Turner, Bo Diddley, even Donovan—the list runs on. The filmed TAMI concert ran for 123 minutes; the TNT show for 93 minutes. Priceless stuff.
But this DVD gives us, instead of those complete shows, an anthology of only 90 minutes, drawn at random order from both shows, omitting way more than half the material. This compilation appears to have been presented on video in the 1980s, and it splices in between the concert footage some cheesy, embarrasingly bad and totally unecessary introductions for each act from Chuck Berry.
Re: Frank Is In The Big TNT show on AMC
On Wednesday July 5th (2000) at 6AM and you can see the clip on "Hollywood Rocks the Movies: The Early Years" the AMC documentary. I just saw him in the audience at the Phil Spector project "the TNT show". Set your VCR's.
I just got done watching the that too. It is a compilation of clips from R&R movies up to about 1970 with Ringo Starr as the narrator. This program showed FZ for about two seconds from the TNT Show movie. The TNT Show itself is scheduled for July 4th morning. The Hollywood Rock and Roll: The Early Years, flick is scheduled to be rebroadcast twice on Monday night too.
