Sunday, December 12th, 1976
Quick morning. Heard another new Wings live one on the radio!
Still no DUCK SOUP but was consoled by GO WEST unscheduled on TV.
Bad Shave. Ouch!
Saw Newton and L.A. on a Xmas show tonight!
NOTES: "Newton" would have been Wayne whom I was quite big on after the Bob Hope live Show. "L.A." though? Hmmm...I got nothin'
GO WEST was a Marx Brothers film I had seen in a revival theater (double featured with A DAY AT THE RACES) which I thought was quite hilarious but it was generally considered (and still is) one of their lesser pictures. Much of the climax of the film centers around a train chase and features gags reminiscent of Buster Keaton. Credited scriptwriter Irving Brecher admitted in his autobiography that Keaton, a sometime consultant to the Marxes at MGM, was on-set for the film so one never knows.
