All I need to do to recall, and forget my 60's/70's days is to see a picture of myself in flared polyester trousers, owl glasses, and sideburns. I did like my brown hair though.....sigh. :cry:

I have one picture of me as a 1969 hippie at Stanford, before I had to cut my hair and get inducted into the ROTC unit. It's a source of unceasing hilarity to my kids and now grandkids. The de rigueur chambray blue work-shirt and the bell-bottom jeans with the fancy fringe on the bottom are too much to bear. :oops:

My youngest daughter, born 1967, has loved old b&W movies and the stars from 1930s-40s since she was a teenager. I don't remember being critical of them when they were new but now when I humor her by watching one with her, I am struck with how bad the acting and lines are... of course, that is also true of most current movies/films. :?

Did they ever rediscover season 1 of The Avengers? I bought a complete boxset many years ago only to discover that season 1 was missing and later learned that the original reels were destroyed.
