The Clouds Will Soon Roll By

Began a gloomy morning with breakfast and Body Language. Came in just as Jm J. Bullock missed answering a puzzle. Elke Sommer answered the puzzle correctly and got her contestant into the bonus round. They did great guessing and acting out the words to earn money for the Bonus Round...but just missed one on the actual round.

Worked on writing for a while after the show ended. Lee finally manages to pry Debralee off Richard. they need to type up that article and get it on the front page of the Match-Up Times. Gene tells Debralee that he and his new sheriff will figure out who the bandits are and what they want. He tells Richard they're going to meet the town's mayor Allen Ludden to get him that job.

Broke for lunch at 12. Ate a jelly omelet and asparagus really quick while watching Match Game '75. This one started off goofy, with Orson Bean appearing in the beginning to explain why he's in the audience. In the last minutes, a woman contestant taught Gene how to leg wrestle...and managed to flip him over!

Hurried off to work as the next episode began. Work was a bit of a pain. I ended up in the 10-items or less register, and it was no fun. People were demanding, or rude, or they tried to bring way too many items into my fast lane. At least it was no busier than it's been the rest of the week. I was very happy when it slowed down enough by 7 for me to hurry on home.

Got home just in time for the second Audience Match on Match Game PM. Changed as a pretty teacher contestant chose "Light bulbs" in response to "__ Bulbs." Brett wasn't as happy to help her with "Above and __" on the Head to Head.

They crowned a new champ on Sale of the Century this evening. The one young woman started off like a shot and never looked back, buying an Instant Bargain and the Instant Cash and winning a Fame Game. Beat the guys at the Speed Round by a decent margin, then did well at the Speed Round, too.

Finished the night at the TCM on demand website with Flying High. I go further into this goofy 1931 vehicle for Bert Lahr and Charlotte Greenwood with Busby Berkeley choreography at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.
