This Day in TV History: A night of specials

50 years ago tonight, NBC brought us its latest Bob Hope Special, co-starring Teresa graves, Petula Clark, and in a sketch I don't think I want to see, "Miss Worley plays an obnoxious child who drives a burglar crazy," as per In his book Thanks for the Video Memories, Wesley Hyatt gives the special *** but Bob himself **** and singles out the opening skit with Der Bingle for praise.

Following Bob on this Monday night: Pure Goldie, a new variety special starring Goldie Hawn and produced by sitcom vets Sam Denoff and Bill Persky. They had all worked together on Good Morning, World in the 1967-68 season.

The special is an apparent rarity, but I did find this clip with Kermit the Frog:

40 years ago tonight, NBC had an interesting lineup: new special Doug Henning's World of Magic, a screening of Animal House, and the original production Women Who Rate a 10. I'm sure that last one is as classy and non-exploitative as all TV from the era is. Believe it or not, though, the ladies got their say first; this is a follow-up to Fall 1980's Men Who Rate a 10.

  1. They are licenced by regulators and as such, are required to satisfy compliance standards. Their games are examined long earlier than they 점보카지노 go stay online, and as soon as} used by a on line casino, they are regularly checked thereafter. Games are programmed to perform in certain methods which may lead to the idea they are fixed. However, the games still meet fair standards that are a condition of the regulator that all the time places the client first.
