The fact that an actual London bridge dating back to 1831 was dismantled (1967) and rebuilt (1971) in an Arizona desert is absolutely insane. Yet here it is. Even more insane is the TV movie Bridge Across Time (1985) starring David Hasselhoff and Randolph Mantooth - where this relocated bridge brings with it the spirit of Jack the Ripper and a new string of murders.
Anyway, here are some pages from Parade (January 3, 1971). Enjoy.
Pick any 3? I'll take Led Zeppelin II, Steppenwolf, and Jim Nabors please.
An interesting article on cinematic nudity....
"There was a period when no casting director in Hollywood would ask any actress to play any role in the nude. In today's permissive age, however, nudity is taken for granted, especially by young aspiring actresses—even veteran ones.
In her next film, "Desperate Characters," Shirley MacLaine, who's been around for a good 15 years, will play a scene in the altogether.
Explains one Hollywood casting official: "Years ago nudity in films was prohibited by the code. Nowadays, we have practically no code, and the industry is fighting for survival. It's all good and well to talk about clean, wholesome, family films but look what's doing the business: 'Sexual Freedom in Denmark,' 'He and She,' 'Mash,' 'Diary of a Mad Housewife.' They all feature at least some nudity.
"Family films like 'Dr. Dolittle,' 'Hello, Dolly!,' 'Goodbye, Mr. Chips' — families just won't patronize them. Times have changed, and the young players have changed with them. If a scene calls for nudity, I mean if it's not pornographic, hardly any young actress will say 'No.' "
Recently the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling that
"no photograph of the female anatomy, no matter how posed, if no sexual activity is being engaged in, or however lacking in social value, can be held obscene."
Three months ago 20th Century-Fox released a film, "Vanishing Point," in which actress Gilda Texter was shown riding a motorcycle in the nude. Since the script called fo it, Gilda took it right in stride."
You too can own your own pocket recorder for the low, low price of $89.98. Adjusted for inflation, that's about $530.00!
Sometimes you want a cigarette. Sometimes you just want good grammar.
More on the insanity that is the London Bridge in Arizona.
I thought bra burning parties were the 'in thing' around this time.
A completely pointless article on dating - interesting only because the "Keeping Up With Youth" article is conveniently positioned next to an addiction ad.
Kent, Tareyton, Winston and Marlboro I'm sure were pleased with the free advertising - especially the positive words. An odd marketing tactic to say the least.
I can't help it - I loved the flamboyant Rip Taylor. This is just a few years before the dude went off the rails.
No. Plus sized women should not be liberated too. Lose some weight and we'll talk.
An electric moist heat pad sounds disgusting. Does this still exist?
