    I liked that one too, though I haven't seen it since the first broadcast in 1973. Mike Evans (Lionel on "All In The Family") is Desi Jr's co star in this one. Mike is on the run after killing a thug in self defense, the duo go on a sail boat journey, learning to work through their bigotry. They are also heard on the soundtrack singing the Simon and Garfunkel song "El Condor Pasa".

    Theme Songs That Fit A Movie or TV Show Perfectly

    The spooky sounding lullaby sung by Mia Farrow sets up "Rosemary's Baby" beautifully.

    Go Ask Alice (1973 TV movie) 7/10 This was the first time I saw this, even though I thought I saw all the great 1970s movies of the week, a period I consider a "golden age" of TV movies. I thought it was quite good with an interesting cast. Jamie Smith Jackson stars as Alice, a teenager caught up in the drug world of that 60s-70s generation. Jackson soon guested on the TV cop show "The Rookies" and later married one of the stars, Michael Ontkean. William Shatner and Julie Adams play Alice's clueless parents. Andy Griffith shows up as a priest who takes in runaway teens and he encourages her to go back home when she runs away. Ruth Roman has a brief role as a doctor. Wendell Burton ("The Sterile Cuckoo") is a nice guy who falls in love with Alice. Mackenzie Phillips has a bit part as a fellow addict, she had her own problems like that in real life. Things don't get too graphic but there are some quick shots of disturbing scenes where Alice and one of her friends are menaced by a sadistic couple. There is music of the time on the soundtrack, including Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" though it is performed by a fake group, a similar one does the Beach Boys "Good Vibrations". I heard Lee Michael's 1971 hit "Do You Know What I Mean" which sounded like it was the original. The final scene is jolting.

    The Gold Rush (1925) 7/10 One of Chaplin's most highly regarded films and this was the first time I saw it. It seemed to me to be several great comedy bits strung together more than one coherent story. And the best bits are hilarious- eating the shoe, mirage of the chicken, dancing with rolls and the house on the edge.
