Welcome to Magazine Monday. Britt Ekland graces the cover this March 10, 1980 edition of People Magazine.
This four page Disneyland article is in celebration of the park’s 25th anniversary. Since its People magazine they chose to highlight celebrity “People” at Disneyland over the past 25 years. Hey there’s Sophia Loren again (link).
I wonder if Jack Benny used the free tickets Walt gave him (link).
Anwar Sadat, Ernie Kovacs, Johnny Cash, Sir Lawrence Olivier – who hasn’t been to Disneyland?
Nixon’s, Osmond’s and Groucho Marx!
“Two men, Different as they could be… One, losing hope. The other, helping him find it again”. Wow this looks awful.
Who is this Larry King guy? I bet he can’t hold a steady job.
John Lennon just months before his tragic death.
Now for some advertisements. It’s hard to believe this was 31 years ago! Film, what’s that for?
Margarine you squeeze – it must be Parkay.
Automobiles were in a “transition “ in 1980. While I do like Oldsmobile’s, I happen to know firsthand these particular models were trouble prone and they're dreaming with those mileage estimates!
Ford was still stamping out Granada’s in 1980, this was the last year of the first generation Granada’s, which were pretty much a 1960 falcon underneath.
“Oh what a feeling” – Toyota couldn’t build these cute little cars fast enough. I like how the ad copy talks about the restyled front end yet doesn’t bother to show it to us?
Poor Dodge, even though Chrysler was bailed out by the US Government in late 1979 to the tune of 1.5 billion dollars in loan guarantees, they still had cars like this in the pipeline. While it actually looks kind of cool it is in reality a total pile of junk. I remember seeing these on Dodge lots in 1981 - acres of them, dusty and unwanted.
Remember when TV's had a picture tube and came enclosed in fine furniture?
Back when phones had cords and you could rent them from the phone company.
This “early” Early Pregnancy Test seems rather complex and scientific, that or it’s a mini meth lab?
