Did This Scare You Out of the Water For anyone who hasn't seen this film, Jaws is a 1975 thriller directed by Steven Spielberg, based on Peter Benchley's best-selling novel inspired by the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916. Jaws bears similarities to several literary and artistic works, most notably Moby-Dick by Herman Melville. The character of Quint strongly resembles Captain Ahab, the obsessed captain of the Pequod who devotes his life to hunting a sperm whale. Quint's monologue reveals his similar vendetta against sharks, and even his boat, the Orca, is named after the only natural enemy of sharks. A direct reference to these similarities may be found in the original screenplay, which introduced Quint by showing him watching the film version of Moby-Dick. His laughter throughout made people get up and leave the theater (Wesley Strick's screenplay for Cape Fear featured a similar scene). However, the scene from Moby-Dick could not be licensed from Gregory Peck, the owner of the rights. The final scenes of the film, in which the men chase the shark and try to harpoon it with flotation barrels, parallel the chase for Moby-Dick in the novel. We have this in our library and watch it usually once a month. There's something about this film that sticks in my memory, and no, I never went back into the water.

Jimmy Carter on Whats My Line In 1974, when Jimmy Carter was governor of Georgia, he appeared as a contestant on the syndicated version of What's My Line. He was so anonymous at the time he wasn't recognized. Two years later he'd be elected president.

Gene Gene The Dancing Machine Eugene Patton, better known as Gene Gene The Dancing Machine, was a regular non-competing act on The Gong Show. Patton was an NBC stagehand. According to host Chuck Barris, Patton often danced backstage to the music of other acts. Barris thought Patton's style of dancing was amusing, so he persuaded Patton to dance on a show that was otherwise going to run a couple of minutes short. Strutting his stuff to a blended version of two Count Basie songs (Jumpin' at the Woodside and Two O'Clock Jump), the public reaction was favorable and Gene became a semi-regular. This clip shows an early appearance of Gene Gene the Dancing Machine because soon afterwards it became part of the shtick for Patton's fellow stagehands to litter the stage with an assortment of bizarre random objects: inflatable toys, sports equipment, clothing, furniture, mannequins, etc. (It was the 1970s. You had to be there.)

Apples Way intro Does anyone besides me even remember this show? It was supposed to be a modern version of The Waltons (which was also created by Earl Hamner). I do remember that Apple's Way was the butt of some comedians' jokes for being way too unrealistically wholesome.

The Phantom of the Opera  Lon Chaney The original 1925 silent movie clip where Christine removes The Phantom's mask. This was the absolute best version, no singing, just simply as it was written.

Vinnie Barbarino Dance - Gold Jump Suit Many years ago I posted a clip of John Travolta doing his amusing Vinnie Barbarino song and dance on Welcome Back, Kotter. Here's another version--perhaps a better one. It's from the 20th episode (titled The Telethon) where the Sweathogs put on a telethon to try to raise enough money to keep their school's special ed program afloat.
