Meanwhile, at the Ski Lodge...


Miss Joanie Sommers, as oblivious to the dancers on acid as she is to the muppet on her head.

  1. I love how every time she sings "Or should we just sit sipping wine" the dancer in the orange sweater incorporates "sitting" into his dance moves. Bravo!

  2. There is a great deal here that didn't quite come off the way, I think, that at least some involved had hoped. And then it's crowned by that most annoying of '60s-'70s conventions, the fade-to-applause in place of an actual ending. At least here, unlike some variety shows, she isn't just left kind of standing around pretending to sort of sing as the music goes away.

    It's odd. She has a nice voice, and a pleasant enough delivery, but there's absolutely nothing about it that makes you ever want to see her again. I guess that's star quality, or its absence.

    1. It's funny how we all just accepted the sort of "fade-to-applause" ending you mentioned. Even as a child I thought it was weird, yet we saw that type of thing so often it just became the norm.

  3. Sort of a cut-rate Vicki Carr backed up by bargain brand Solid Gold Dancers. If there is such a thing.

  4. A Neely O'Hara wannabe. Love the Strar Trek Togs on the safety stoners.

    1. It's pretty hard not to think of Neely O'Hara during numbers like this!

  5. Was one one singing? I was enraptured by the dancers.

  6. Did people really dance like that? Miss Summers was once billed as "The Voice of the Sixties", apparently. I assume that description was given her by someone on drugs. Jx

    2. Her inexcuseable use of the Gazoo on "Johnnie Get Angry",disqualifys her. The honor belongs to Babs.
