Valley Of The Dolls Theme Song

If there's a more haunting song than Dionne Warwick's "Theme From The Valley Of The Dolls," then I don't want to hear it. I don't know why this strikes such a melancholy chord (heh heh) in me, but it always has. You can listen to the song here.

Here's the movie's soundtrack album; from left to right are Barbara Perkins, Sharon Tate and Patty Duke.

August 9, 1969

It was 45 years ago today that Sharon Tate was killed by the Charles Manson "family." It seems a shame that she is notorious for being a victim when she did, after all, have a lot going for her. Happily married with a child on the way, she had done some acting and a lot of modeling and by all accounts was a lovely woman.

Sharon was 26 when she was killed.

30 Television Shows Of My Childhood

 photo NBCPeacock.jpg These shows were in living color! as demonstrated by NBC's peacock, shown on the left. (The following shows were on various networks, not just NBC.)

I realize that this makes it look like I watched at great deal of television, but I didn't. However, what I did watch was quality programming. I know because the stations said so.

I found these images mostly on Google and Bing, but also on Pinterest.
