Oh to be Dick Cavett!
30 May 2007 | by blockerloverSee all my reviews

Seated in-between this installment's eclectic guests, Janis Joplin and Raquel Welch, Dick Cavett wryly comments they were all once roommates in college. This glorious chat-session exemplifies how low TV talk shows have sunk in the last two decades--and how we, as the TV-viewing public, have been shortchanged in terms of quality, smart humor, and interesting conversation. Joplin, decked out in a frilly thrift-store ensemble, is quiet and contemplative, an intense listener who had savvy, though soft-spoken opinions. For instance, as Welch is attempting to sell her stillborn controversial sex-change comedy "Myra Breckinridge", Joplin tells her, "You looked good in it...but the movie's too choppy. I couldn't follow kept changing." Welch, far from being rattled, winks and tells Janis, "Well the whole movie's about change." And the audience is hip enough to be in on the joke.
