No doubt it was English; we’re not told. “Brother time she really became a human being . .” She graduated in 1960 and “just like Jennifer Cavilleri in Love Story married her Harvard beau.” You remember this Italian chick, good folksinger/bad actress, from Cranston, Rhode Island, \(Just like Jennifer Cavilleri in lying around on a blanket in a park in Boston five or six years ago in college. The interesting thing about chicks from those schools is their interchangeability just move the guitar from one pair of hands to another and the blank expression from one face to the other and the tennis shorts and shirt from one body to the other and the unrealized “creativity” from one clean little head to the next, and go right on to the next page. NEXT IS Ali’s rise to fame and glory, a dog for seasoning, the entrance of and marriage to Robert Evans, a Paramount producer who had a few million Robinson crying \(Would you cry if Eddie cried? Rapidly checking Edward G.’s crying record against your own, you bedside, and a quick crude stab at Paul Newman courtesy of “Bob” Evans, allowing as how Newman made WUSA to “salve his liberal conscience.” You vaguely bring to mind The Left-Handed Gun, Hud, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You look back for some of Evans’ movies for comparison: The Odd Couple, Barefoot in the Park, Rosemary’s Baby, Goodbye Columbus, Paint Your Bound Volumes of The Observer Bound volumes of the 1970 issues of the Texas Observer are now ready.

THE TEXAS OBSERVER 504 W 24th AUSTIN 78705 Wagon, and you decide that you’ll trust instead of Evans’. “From now on we make our kind of pictures . . .” Evans says, and you wonder: “Why bother, why not just rerelease Paint Your Wagon under a’ different title. No one’s seen it anyway, or if they have, they probably wouldn’t notice.” Ali married him and she’s responsible for it; she could have not married him. But you already had given up on Ali and they probably really complement each other. Finally you get to the other chicks. Margot Kidder does all right; she affirms your prejudice and her photograph has an incredible composition, unbearable symmetry dominated by the nipples of her enormous tits through an ugly pink sweater. Skip through Carrie Snodgress on CC. . real relationships . ..” and Karen getting to Joanna. She’s “a model turned actress.” Yes, yes, you knew that! She has “a special, highly charged screen presence.” Yes! Yes! But what does she say?! Time quotes: “I’m old fashioned,” she insists. “I don’t believe in promiscuity. I don’t believe in drugs. Anything that feels as good as pot must be bad for you. I believe in love. I guess at heart I’m a pure romantic. I believe a woman’s place is in the home.” Quickly your authority on these matters assures you that there are some things Time left out. She tells you about what Ladies’ Home Journal said about All MacGraw. That Joanna Shimkus is conning the man from Time. But it doesn’t matter anymore. The illusion, lost for a moment, is lost forever. You and Joanna will never put it all together or take it all apart. You’re through. Or Joanna’s through, one or the other, but it doesn’t much matter which. Recovering, you look for Barbara Hershey. Yes, she’s living with David Carradine on the beach in California, but you haven’t met her yet. Just that brief encounter with David Susskind substituting for Mery Griffin. And Carradine was there, so you couldn’t really match world views anyway. You look in the text and there is no quote. Just the amorphous comment under her photograph that love stories “appeal to people forever, not just for the moment.” That’s all right, vague, leaving room for hope. There is still some hope. There are still Barbara Hershey and Sharon Farrell and there’s still Dan August. Rick said “Don’t gimme no handmedown Marlon Brando,” but in adverse times you have to take it anyway you can get it. And anyway, Rick has New York television so how is he to know the situation down here where only when the gods will it and even then only with the cooperation of the uncooperative VanAllen Belt can you get the last hour of the Dick Cavet Show from a station in Birmingham, Alabama, a show which you view with some ambivalence, and may not even want.
