What's on TV? Monday, October 9, 1967

There's a note at the beginning of today's listing that if the World Series requires a fifth game, it will air on NBC starting at 1:00 p.m., with a pre-game show at 12:30. The Minnesota Twins were eliminated on the final day of the season; had they won today's game would have been telecast by WTCN as well as NBC. In this case, I've chosen to show what TV Guide lists, rather than what actually aired. Since the game ran two hours and twenty minutes, you can probably figure out what was shown and what was preempted. Needless to say, the listings are from the Twin Cities.

Stan Freberg in Everybody's Talking—that would have been fun to see. And Ryan O'Neal! Kaye Stevens, who was frequently on TV, rounds out an interesting cast. Interesting also is this tidbit from the always-reliable Wikipedia that Everybody's Talking was the last American daytime program aired in black-and-white.

Tonight's prime-time movie is one of the greats, The Killers, based on the Ernest Hemingway short story, starring Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, and Edmond O'Brian, We've talked before about the 1964 remake, which was originally intended to be the first made-for-TV movie before it was deemed too violent. That version starred Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, and (in his last role) Ronald Reagan. That was a pretty fair version, too. TV

  1. More Here & There:

    - Everybody's Talking! was a favorite game show of mine, and I remember how I looked forward to seeing Stan Freberg on it - and how disappointed I was when he canceled out at the last minute (reasons unknown, at least by me).
    I think (not entirely sure) that Lloyd Thaxton, the host, got his old college pal Paul Lynde to fill in.
    I do recall that Stan Freberg did appear a few weeks later, in the company of Ann Sothern (she'd appeared with Freberg in a Girl From UNCLE episode not long before) and Rick Jason (who'd just wrapped Combat!; his sense of fun was somewhat of a surprise).
    At the start of the week, Lloyd Thaxton greeted Stan Freberg thusly: "I've lip-synced so many of your records, sometimes I think I'm you."
    Freberg's reply: "That's not an easy thing to do, and you do it very well."

    - Also noting that Channel 9, the ABC station, is apparently bypassing Dark Shadows, which was just now getting into the spook stuff - then again, To Be Announced could mean anything …

    - Elsewhere, I Spy has a show wherein Culp & Cosby have to contend with an obnoxious kid musician from the Eastern Bloc who plays everybody for suckers; a standard plotline of shows like these.
    The Obnoxious Kid was scrawny, buck-toothed John Megna; I was surprised years later to learn that he was the younger brother of Connie Stevens, whom he resembled not at all.
    (Side Note: Ever notice that since Bill Cosby got into his Trouble, that the only photos you see of him show the dissipated Cos of today; the handsome Cos of the '60s doesn't seem to exist any more - probably just coincidence).

    - In the '60s, Lesley Gore was taking time off from her recording career to attend Columbia University.
    She'd entrusted herself to Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, who were friends of her family, and who likely brokered her appearance this week on the old (clean) Match Game.

    - For those who are interested:
    The Criterion Collection has brought out both film versions of The Killers in a DVD set, so you may compare the two at your leisure.
    Interestingly, this was from a period when Ronald was actively seeking out villainous (or at least unsympathetic) roles, in an effort to break his long-standing good-guy typecast.
    As you may recall, that didn't work out exactly as he'd hoped, and he had to settle for politics - and that's another story …

  2. Hey, what about the rest of the stations? This is more than just Minneapolis-St. Paul, this is the Minnesota State edition. What was on the stations in Duluth, La Crosse/Eau Claire and Mason City/Austin/Rochester? And MAMKATO! How could you forget Mankato?!
