    Never saw this before, but this is ridiculous.......

    The Paul Lynde Show with guests Billie Hayes (from HR Puffenstuf) and
    Margaret Hamilton ("The Wizard of OZ") and Betty White...

    And for his wish, he gets to be a "Rhinestone Trucker".... if that didn't
    say he was gay what would????

    I like the line about Dorothy. From back in the 70's.

    Margaret Hamilton's transformation back into her wicked witch character was interesting. She looks old & grandmotherly in her initial appearance in the sketch (I think this was about the time she had been doing TV coffee commercials - for Maxwell House?), but she turns into her familiar witchy self once the costume and make-up go on, and she raises her voice an octave. Fun to see it.

    And Betty White is adorably silly as always. I knew a guy in Manhattan who every year would do her in drag rather convincingly, and have himself professionally photographed out in the city streets. The pic would go on his Christmas cards that year, always with the words on front: "Have a Betty White Christmas!"

    The sketch loses it at the end in the trucking scenes, where the wonderful Tim Conway is largely wasted. I can't remember this show at all, but I was an Army Company Commander at the time (1977) and really, really busy, not watching a lot of TV at home, when I was even there.

    Thanks for this. icon_biggrin.gif
