The creepiest thing about it, knowing what lay in the future, is how cheerful Stratten and Snider look.

Well, it's not that surprising. They were married, after all; and I find it hard to believe that their union was an unrelieved nightmare right out of the gate (the Peter Bogdanovich line). This was undoubtedly taken at some Playboy Manse get-together, before it all started to go south for The Sniders'.

Dawson looks suitably gassed.

Family Feud indeed.

Jesus, she was a beautiful girl.

Say what you will, Dawson is a very witty guy. He was great on MATCH GAME, and he delivered a unpitying self-parody in THE RUNNING MAN. The guy co-starred in HOGAN'S HEROES (with Bob Crane, who has much in common with Stratten and Snider) and was married to Diana Dors.

Stupid Paul Snider. 'They All Laughed' was great.

What a noxious yellow get-up. What a pathetic little man.

Tom Sutpen said...

Now, that's what I call going out on a limb!

Match Game 75 meets Star 80.

I think it's interesting if you note the body language. Stratten has almost completely turned her body toward the other guy and not her husband. Maybe she was already having other thoughts about him when they married. Maybe she felt she owed him something. Maybe nobody ever told her she owed herself the success she had got and not him.
