Friday, April 30th, 1976

Two teachers out sick!

Mom got home from work at noon and was outside cutting the grass by the time I showed up from school. I stayed outside and helped her out some.

I got my first RBCC of my new sub in the mail today.

I have the chance to see an X (no one under 17) movie tomorrow but I'm seriously thinking of passing on it in favor of the Hitchcock one instead.

Lynda Carter who plays WONDER WOMAN was on with Merv tonight. Unlike a lot of actresses today, she says she'd never do a nude scene in a movie.

NOTES: Lynda Carter was and is stunningly beautiful but I've never really been able to think of her as "sexy." Doesn't mean I wasn't trying on this day, however. She actually lied to Merv when she said that she had never done a nude scene though because not long afterward, a movie she apparently hoped would never be released--BOBBIE JO AND THE OUTLAW, was released. She's topless in several scenes. (I'm watching it as I type this. ;) )

BOBBIE JO AND THE OUTLAW is nothing she should have been ashamed of--it's a slightly above average AIP low-budget exploitation flick starring charismatic former preacher Marjoe Gortner. He really isn't a good actor in spite of his many years of admittedly fake evangelism but his film work was always interesting. Lynda gives a good performance and looks great topless as one might expect. Still does nothing for me. Sigh.


  1. Steve. Buddy. You must be broken. ;^)

    Lynda Carter topless "does nothing" for you? Sheesh, just typing the words "LINDA CARTER TOPLESS" kinda got me I'm going to have to watch my copy of Bobby Jo (thank goodness there's such a thing as a Fast Forward button!).

    "Stunningly beautiful" certainly does describe her perfectly...she was, and still is.

    If we keep typing "Lynda Carter topless", you should get even more traffic, here, right? Or maybe "Linda Carter topless"?

    Jackie Gleason described her best, way back when: "Homina, homina, homina..."!

    I'm off to the tv room, now...

  2. Lynda Carter has always "done something" for me too. She was another of my early celebrity crushes. The fact that she played a superhero put it over the top. She remains the definitive Wonder Woman for me.
