Slept late today. Had six hamburgers for breakfast when I finally got up. Watched Nick Clooney's new network game show, MONEY MAZE.
Noel Neill (Lois Lane) was on with Mike Douglas! She talked about the cast, George Reeves' suicide, her college shows, and even had a film clip! It was her birthday and they brought out a cake with a Superman symbol on it.
IT. Last time for '74!!!! Hopefully.
Mom bought me a cheap magic kit but it was still pretty neat! I've already mastered a few tricks. Oh, I love it!
Dad gave me another early present--a new tape recorder! Same type I got last year but I hope it works better.
Saw a very good Christmas episode of BEWITCHED. Then watched a little of Roddy on the daytime HOLLYWOOD SQUARES while I helped Mom wrap presents.
This was Christmas eve. For so many years, I would go to bed in anticipation of waking up to tomorrow's gifts. So much has changed.
NOTES: Noel Neill is still alive in 2012 and recently her birthday was celebrated on Facebook.
Today I watched a vintage Christmas episode of BEWITCHED online. Could it be the same one??? This one co-starred Bill Mumy, a longtime favorite actor whom I've had the pleasure to meet and talk with a number of times through the years and who is now a Facebook friend.
Nick Clooney's national game show was a bit ridiculous as Nick, himself admitted to me twenty years later when he signed the MONEY MAZE picture seen here on a TV mag cover I kept from that time.
BY this point, I was already suffering holiday depression that would continue throughout the years. I don't do Decembers well.
