By the great, grey strands of Howard Cosell’s toupee! It’s been much too long since we’ve flipped on the box for an episode of Show Toppers. Let’s dive right into another long-lost 1970s TV intro.
Flying High ran on CBS from September of 1978 to January of 1979. The humorous adventure series focuses on three young ladies, all recent graduates of flight attendant school. The trio work together on a Sunwest Airlines jumbo jet based in California.
‘Flying High’ cast; Connie Sellecca (Lisa), Kathryn Witt (Pam), and Pat Klous (Marcy).
New York fashion models and fledgling actors; Connie Sellecca, Kathryn Witt and Pat Klous were cast as Lisa, Pam and Marcy. Howard Platt co-stars as Captain March. Sellecca went on to find fame on The Greatest American Hero and Hotel.
Not ‘Yee Haw,’ but an incredible simulation. (‘Donny & Marie,’ 1976)
Remember when Donny & Marie and The Osmonds teamed up with Roy Clark, Charo and George Gobel for a rollicking version of “Foggy Mountain Breakdown”? I know you couldn’t forget that – it was a highlight of the decade.
The clip below originally aired on Donny & Marie in 1976. You won’t want to miss the “humorous” chatter before the tune, but if you’d like to jump right to the music, that starts at 3:10. Breakdown!
