Hi John-

I believe that Jackie Gleason's widow mentions this episode in a
biography of her late husband. It's only a small tangent, but
it's fairly well known that Gleason was very interested in UFOs
and reportedly had a home built in the shape of one.

Information can also be found at:

http://www.skywatch-international.org/gleason.htm

or

http://j_kidd.tripod.com/b/195.html

It is also mentioned in the following, but the links to more
detailed information appear to be broken (and may have linked to
the article above):

Is there any truth to the Gleason/Nixon tale? Gleason and Nixon
both had homes in Florida and played golf together as friends. I
can't imagine that Gleason would have missed the opportunity to
ask the President about UFOs, but I also can't imagine that was
possible to get a civilian into such a highly classified area.

It would seem that all the known witnesses are deceased, and it
remains an interesting tale that will probably never be
verified.

Steve
