i just saw a snippet of a talk show with merv griffith, barbara walters and a bunch of people i don’t know…
griffith is one of the pioneers of the talk show genre, and he showed an old clip of walters appearing on his show..in the 70’s i think..in front of a live audience of 3,000..
then griffith said the clip didn’t contain the most interesting part of that show, which was a question he asked barbara walters at the time that made that audience of 3,000 go ballistic..and that he would like to ask it again..
the question was; was it true she had an affair with fidel castro….?
the camera cut to walters and she was giving griffith one of the most bilious looks/stares i have ever seen..(the dark side of bwa-bwa was on view)
i don’t know if griffith was settling old scores or what because he compounded it by saying that just one of the things that made him ask, was all those moonlight walks she took on the beach, holding hands with fidel..
camera cuts to walters again; i didn’t think it was possible but walters was looking even more bilious and was also changing colour; all the while glaring at griffith..speechless..(and priceless to watch..)
i don’t know about you, but anyone with a passing interest in cold war politics/personalities could be either amused, or possibly disturbed, by the thought/image of fidel and bwa-bwa doing the wild thing…
