I was always a big fan of Ann Margret. Who wasn’t ? Many long, happy hours growing up were spent admiring her undoubted talents in movies like The Cincinnati Kid, Viva Las Vegas and Carnal Knowledge. I once had on a loop the scene from Tommy when she swims around in baked beans. Movie magic. This woman had everything: she was beautiful, fit as a butcher’s dog, had the stars of Hollywood and Rock n Roll drooling after her, and was the pin-up of boys and men the world over.
But I wonder, when she was jumping up and down with (and on) Elvis Presley, sipping champers at the top table, or removing Heinz 57 from her navel, if this Swedish sex-kitten ever dreamt she would end up performing on stage with dreadful jock-popsters The Bay City Rollers. Her career was clearly on the slide and she must have thought things couldn’t have gotten any worse.
Then she saw the audience.
I’m just picking my jaw off the floor now. She’s knitting at 1.30! This is astonishing. Mind if I link to your entry on facebook?
Link away, Shuggy. Just wonderful, ain’t it?
I’m glad you’ve finally ditched that green hat, it matched your teeth but really wasn’t you !
How IS the new career progressing Mike?
I think I can confidently say it’s going as well as I’d expected
That is fantastic! How about that!
