It’s time for another look at 1970s-related stories poking around the Web and the groovy Web Sites that forced them upon us. This time around we take a look at Every ’70s Movie, Susan Olsen.tv and Mego Museum. Dive in!
Every ’70s Movie
Holy kumquats! I just discovered this site a few days back and found it to be rather amazing. Every70sMovie.blogspot.com is run by Peter Hanson and boasts “A New review Every Day Since October 2010”. Hanson seems to be on a mission to watch and review every film ever released in the 1970s and I applaud his tenacity and choice of subject matter. In just the last week you can find short reviews of Godspell, The Onion Field, Hooper and more. Bookmark that sucker!
“From a review of The Onion Field (1979):
Woods’ performance dominates, not only because he’s got the showy role of a psychotic chatterbox, but also because Woods adds textures of deviousness, humor, intelligence, perversion, and self-loathing. (He received his first Golden Globe nomination for The Onion Field.)”
Actress and radio host Susan Olsen, best-known for playing Cindy Brady on The Brady Bunch, has launched a new personal Web Site. At the new HQ you can delve into Olsen’s blog, explore her acting history and view a “Fluffart” gallery. What the Fluff? Find out for yourself.
“Susan seemed set for a ‘normal life’ until the age of five when lightning struck again: a talent scout picked her out of her kindergarten class to sing ‘I’m a Believer’, on ‘The Pat Boone Show’. Figuring it was fate, Susan’s mother gave her the chance to pursue an acting career like her brothers and sister had done and got her an agent. Other opportunities quickly followed, including a role in Elvis Presley’s second-to-last film ‘The Trouble with Girls (and How to Get Into It)’. A number of supporting roles followed for Susan, appearing in popular television shows such as, ‘Ironside’, ‘Gunsmoke’ and ‘Julia’.”
