er, @frauenfelder, Didn’t you mean 46 minutes in the headline?

You said 2x speed is 23 minutes, and the tweet is 46 minutes.

If they have repeat guests that’s gonna be a lot of Bert Convy perms.

The guests were such a crazy mix of D-listers, sitcom bums of the month, TV warhorses, and Golden Age of Hollywood royalty.

It’s shocking how ordinary ‘movie-stars’ looked in those days.
Is it because the human population, having doubled, agents can be pickier with their talent,
is it plastic surgery?

So much here to unpack.

The differences between the Golden Age legends and the has-beens and those that went on to much bigger things and those that never were.

The total pros and those that are clearly there for a paycheck. Interestingly, the pros far outnumber the gritted teeth/let’s get this over with types.

The different approaches to the shot: the smile/laugh (most of them), the no-smile/smile, the pained smile, a couple of spin-arounds, a few that were just clipped from a scene, the sultry posed shots versus hamming it up.

Those, like Dennis Cole, who I only knew from Love Boat as a kid.

Those that were very specific to the 1970s – Charo, The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.

And I wonder what the death ratio is here – over 75% dead?

This was frankly mesmerizing. I couldn’t sit through 46 minutes straight but I got through it chunks and definitely kept it at the normal speed to hear the theme, over and over again.

And to think it was done alphabetically.

Might I suggest to lovers of weird crap like this, the crazy, terrible, unbelievably expensive love boat knockoff, Supertrain?

I loved Pamela Sue Martin especially that time she was under my dad’s bed in Playboy.

You know, I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if there wasn’t a lot of overlap here. Diahann Carroll, Linda Evans, John Forsythe, Katy Kurtzman, Heather Locklear, Pamela Sue Martin, and Catherine Oxenberg all come to mind.

Probably the most overlap with St Elsewhere - where pretty much any actor alive at the time seemed to star/guest star at one point or another.
