Hold on! RIOT! RIOT!

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

And.... check out CNR smoking a pipe and wearing that jacket. He's pulling a WK. I almost bought a jacket like that two weeks ago. All he needs is a blue fedora.



Okay, that's enough from me for now. Cheers!
I'm not Mr. Ripley, but believe it or not I remember watching this first run, Richard drawing a trench hand (later in the episode). :lol: lol

Ya didn't need a weatherman to know which way the wind was blowing in the '70s. You just had to look at guys' collars. Poked in the right eye, the wind was blowing from the east.

Well @Whalehead King , it's time to revisit this topic again nearly a year later.

Has anyone else ever wondered what tobacco CNR was smoking on Match Game? Well, this rare behind the seats shot shows us what he smoked on set. To the left of Charles's station is a partially rolled up pouch of Carter Hall. From MG 1978. Get ready to match the stars! Lol

The Match Game was awesome! I have fond memories watching it when I was a kid.

We usually watch the Match Game every day as well as Hollywood Squares and $25,000 Pyramid on our local "Buzzr" channel. Charles Nelson Rielly, Paul Lynde, Betty White... they don't make em' like that anymore. If Charles wasn't puffing on his pipe, he had a small tipped cigar burning. :D

Watch as the master lights his pipe:



---and then blows a kiss while his charring light is still going!

Hail the master.
