  • Notes

    • A visibly tired (she had bags under her eyes) but smiling Jane Fonda promoted her 1966 film which opened tonight, "The Game is Over." The French title is "La Curée." This film was directed by Jane's husband Roger Vadim. They were married from August 14, 1965 until their divorce on January 16, 1973. - Suzanne (2004)

      The panel had a pretty good night tonight. Bennett not only figured out that the first contestant was an employee of former presidential candidate Senator Barry Goldwater, he also cleverly deduced that she was his personal pilot. A comic at heart, Woody Allen got the biggest laugh of the evening when he asked her if she were Goldwater's psychiatrist. The next contestant totally stumped the panel. One point of confusion came when it was asked if the product could be worn below the waist. This really got the panel going, especially when the contestant was as feisty as Mrs. Brophy was. Phyllis asked her, "Is it made of either leather or plastic or metal?" Mrs. Brophy got a huge laugh when she replied, "Well, make up your mind." After the laughter calmed down, Phyllis said with a big smile, "I'm trying my best, Mrs. Brophy, you'll just have to bear with me." The panel was more successful in identifying mystery guest Jane Fonda. During the post round conversation, John mentioned the fact that her father, Henry, and brother, Peter, were both on the show a few weeks earlier. During this time period, Jane was married to French director Roger Vadim, a union which lasted from 1965 to 1973. A few years later, she would gain her infamous and long-lasting nickname of "Hanoi Jane" for her anti-war activities in Vietnam as she lent her support to the communist government in the north. She also lent her name to several radical causes. It it was through these activities that she met her second husband, former radical leader and Chicago Seven member, Tom Hayden. Five days after her marriage to Vadim ended, on January 21, 1973, she married Hayden. Her second marriage ended in divorce in 1990. But, it was during this Hayden period that she would win two Oscar Awards: a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as a call girl in the 1971 film "Klute" and a Best Actress Oscar for her role in 1978's "Coming Home." It was also during this period that she released a highly successful series of exercise videos. She married husband #3, media mogul Ted Turner, in 1991. They were married for ten years until their divorce in 2001. - Sargebri (2004)
