Saturday, December 18th, 1976

Watched a beautiful Osmonds Christmas show before bed last night!

A well-planned day in spite of IT twice.

Saw PPSA at the Times.

Had to clean up last night's Christmas party at SS over top of Jack who was "helping."

Mom washed late tonight as I watched a great WONDER WOMAN and an even better Mike and Gloria episode of ALL INTHE FAMILY.

NOTES: "PPSA" was THE PINK PANTHER STRIKES AGAIN. The Times Towne Cinema was the last of the prestigious downtown theaters in Cincinnati and even it was stooping to the occasional exploitation film. The Times was where I saw TUNNELVISION earlier in the year.

I recently watched all of the Peter Sellers Pink Panther films again and, while one can see the diminishing budget--or possibly just increased egos and paychecks--Sellers as Clouseau never fails to make me laugh. 


  1. That Osmond Christmas special is available on Youtube in parts.

  2. Watched both Osmonds Xmas and Wonder Woman just now. "Hooo-boy!" on both....
    Turns out I can only tolerate 3-5 Osmonds at a time in a scene. A whole family going cornball just too much...
    And this is "Wonder Woman vs Gargantua" with Mickey Morton in a gorilla outfit fighting Lynda Carter. This was painful even with Robert Loggia and the always-lovely Grethen Corbett.
