These were the first generation of women's "pant suits." And they were scandalous if worn to the workplace as most companies had rules prohibiting women from wearing pants at work.
TRIVIA: The brunette model is Veronica Hamel who went on to play Joyce Davenport on "HILL STREET BLUES" . .

A mint in the box Remco Whirlybird. Remco made many variations of this whirlybird. This is the Monkey Division variation. Monkey Division was a line of toys Remco made and touted it as their "Guerilla War" line of toys. The had helmets, guns, rifles, bazookas, etc. Another wildly popular 60s toy put out during the Vietnam era. Toys glorifying war began to wane when the reports of scores of soliders getting killed filled our TV screens and the "Living Room War" we viewed on the news became unpopular, also it was more fun to make Love not War and the hippie era was ushered in. Parents began to object to toys glorifying war. The set also came with 25 soldiers, a tank, a jeep and truck. The whirlybird also carried all the stuff and had a working cargo hoist too. You are looking at a rarity. The soliders etc. are not shown but are still in their original package. I've often wondered how some of these toys these toys remain unplayed with? Perhaps it is old store stock and I've also heard that sometimes parents would leave the room of a deceased child the way it was when they passed. That is kind of creepy to me.

October 3,1952 to May 11,1956.
The trials and tribulations of Connie Brooks, the
wisecracking English teacher at Madison High School.
Stories revolved around her romantic misadventures as she
struggled to impress fellow teacher Philip Boynton (Robert Rockwell and played on the radio show by Jeff Chandler), the biology
instructor; and her continual clash with crusty,
blustery Osgood P. Conklin (Gale Gordon), the principal. Connie rented a room from kindly old Mrs. Davis and rode to school each morning with one of her students,
the dimwitted Walter Denton (Richard Crenna). This was a great show. My daughter, who collects old radio shows, has an entire set of these and they had me in stitches every night!

From a show that was originally broadcast on April 16, 1955, here are the opening and closing segments of a Science Fiction Theater episode, called "Time is Just a Place," IN COLOR! Not only is this episode about time travel, but it stars one of my favorite character actors, Warren Stevens, who also appeared in "Forbidden Planet" and a Star Trek TOS episode "By Any Other Name." Also in this particular episode is Don DeFore, who starred in the TV sitcom "Hazel." This episode is VERY typical of 1950s TV, where they gave you the title of the episode at the beginning AND after the commercial break at :15 minutes into the episode!

Salvatore Sonny Bono started out in Los Angeles at Specialty Records as a songwriter in the late 1950s.
In 1963, while working on sessions with Phil Spector, he met a 16 year old, would be singer named Cherilyn Sarkasian Lapierre at a coffee shop next to a Los Angeles radio station. She had previously recorded Ringo, I Love You, produced by Phil Spector, under the name Bonnie Jo Mason. Although Sonny was married to Donna Rankin, with whom he had a daughter, his interest in Cher grew until he eventually ended his marriage. Sonny and Cher were later married and although she was reluctant, the pair formed a professional duo, initially known as Caesar and Cleo. For a time, from 1965 until 1967, they were rock and roll's hottest couple, so much so that in some conservative communities they were considered almost morally subversive. Parents locked up their kids when Sonny and Cher were passing through for a concert appearance. Then, as quickly as they started, the hits stopped coming. Later, they ended up with a summer replacement try-out show that did so well that Sonny and Cher were given a regular spot in the CBS lineup in January 1972, with a comedy-variety series. Their recording career was revived initially by a live album, cut in one night in Las Vegas, featuring new versions of their early hits as well as parts of their current repertory. The album went gold. The next couple of singles by Cher, and Sonny and Cher failed, but producer Snuff Garrett, who had been at Liberty when Cher was there, but had never worked with her, was brought in, and the result was Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves, a number one hit that revived their career. After that, The Way of Love, All I Ever Need Is You, A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done, Half Breed, and Dark Lady kept either Cher or the couple in the Top Ten at various times through 1974. By then, however, their marriage had fallen apart, and with it, the success of their TV show.

From the movie "The Wackiest Wagon Train in the West"(1976)
...which simply strung together three episodes of the not very popular "Gilligan's Island" remake "Dusty's Trail" (1973)
Here's how it goes:
Produced by Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of Gilligan's Island, this series took the
character of Gilligan, changed his name to Dusty, placed him on a wagon train and dared him
to try to find the west! They surrounded Dusty with very recognizable characters -
The wagon master played by Forrest Tucker (Skipper);
a rich couple, Ivor Francis and Lynn Wood (Mr. & Mrs.
Howell); saloon girl Jeannine Riley (Ginger);
school marm Lori Saunders (Mary Ann); and an
engineer played by Bud Cort (Professor). With Dusty
as guide, the wagon train wandered all over the place,
and it was a sure bet that this group would never
make its way west, in much the same way the
castaways were never able to get off the island thanks
to the lovable, well-meaning Gilligan...Starring:
Bob Denver - Dusty,
Forrest Tucker - Wagonmaster Callahan, also
Ivor Francis - Mr. Carson Brookhaven,
Lynn Wood - Mrs. Brookhaven,
Jeannine Riley - Lulu McQueen,
Lori Saunders - Betsy,
Bill Cort - Andy
