I happened to catch The Dinah Shore Chevy Show on JLTV and saw this amazing performance by Chita Rivera. What a firecracker!
Tom Jones sings “Delilah” (1968)
Tom Jones sings “Delilah” on Britain’s Top of the Pops. Please enjoy the singing because you are not going to enjoy the dancing. Apparently, those poor dears are afflicted with “No Rhythm” syndrome!
‘The Saint’ – The TV Titles
“The Saint” was a wonderful British television program based on the novels by Leslie Charteris. Roger Moore played the role of Simon Templar, the hero who would leave his “saint-ly” calling card, a stick figure with a halo. You should watch it some time!
Below are two different titles used during the show’s run – one in black & white and the other in color. The first one is just utilitarian,
but the second one is very jazzy and hip (the second one was pulled off Youtube for copyright violation – boo!).
Black & White Intro (short & simple, with a jazzy theme)

Monday Meal: Carving Magic (with Harvey Korman)
It’s your Monday Meal time again! Today we have a lovely video clip called “Carving Magic.” This instructional film teaches you how to carve different types of meat. And as a bonus, Harvey Korman co-stars as the clueless guy who asks all the questions. (For those who don’t know, Harvey Korman is best known for “The Carol Burnett Show.”)
So sit back, relax and learn all about the art of carving. And be sure to pull out your projector and show this film to all your friends at your next dinner party. It’ll be swell!

Your Hit Parade: Autumn Leaves
A tongue-in-cheek version of “Little Red Riding Hood” set to the music of “Autumn Leaves,” with Tad Tadlock.
Doris Day sings “Secret Love” (1953)
From the film, Calamity Jane, starring Doris Day and Howard Keel. Her voice is like butter!
“Once I had a secret love, that lived within the heart of me…”
