Headed out to work after the cartoon ended. As it turned out, I ended up bagging today. Fine by me. Even with the cold, cloudy, killer humid weather, I'd still rather be outside pushing carts than inside dealing with people. Spent a pleasant afternoon sweeping and doing carts with absolutely no trouble whatsoever.
Headed straight home after that. Had dinner while watching Belle of the Yukon. I go further into this bizarre musical Alaskan Gold Rush tale featuring Randolph Scott and a rare performance by Gypsy Rose Lee at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.
Took a much-needed shower, then watched a first-season episode of The Love Boat on Paramount Plus. A director (Fernando Lamas) wants to make a movie with his "Hollywood Royalty" wife, who spends the voyage sporting an enormous diamond pendant. Four not-especially-bright thieves lead by actor Vernon Crowler (Harold Gould) go on "The Caper" to steal it. A blind girl (Stephanie Zimbalist) sees through "The Eyes of Love" when she falls for a former classmate (Desi Arnaz Jr.) from her school for blind children who regained his sight. A lawyer (Dan Rowan) finds himself caught in a "Masquerade" when his wife (Juliet Mills) befriends his mistress (Adrienne Barbeau).
And we had our second Bob Barker week on YouTube. Rona Barrett marked her first of two appearances on the show in February 1975 and Bob his second. Fannie Flagg shows off her "dangerous curves" t-shirts, while Bob wonders how the wild audiences from Price Is Right and Truth or Consequences followed him to Match Game.
