Love will keep them together. Or not.

  1. I hope Bette took out a hit on whoever was responsible for that costume.

    1. I believe that's a costume she wore as one of her "characters" in her live show. Which means this Neil Sedaka special had no budget whatsoever.

  3. Yes Thom that's the Nanette character, minus the coat.

    I have it on good authority that this number is what spurred the coining of the phrase 'not a well woman', I'm just not certain which of the two they were talking about.

  4. Amazing Neil Sedaka fun fact: he's been married to the same woman since 1962. She is either very, very patient or quite, quite blind. Or both.

    And I will never, ever forgive the '70s for trying to persuade unfit men that fitted sweaters over shirts were somehow flattering. I paid the price in high school, a shame overcome only by rigorous ballet lessons and the very mildest of speed addictions...

    1. Mrs Sedaka probably appreciates a man who can make quiche, and irons creases in his jeans, and knows how to shop, and stuff... They must have done it at least twice - two kids - or else he tosses and turns a lot in his sleep. Jx
