The Odds of March


Well, an odd couple, certainly.  Thirty years ago today, some long-forgotten event threw together (against a startlingly unflattering curtain) two quite unlike pop-culture figures.  It's strange to remember that Bob Dylan was really comparatively presentable, once upon a time; equally so, to think that Dinah Shore could have ever thought that coat was a good idea.

She gives the impression that she's decided that Dylan could help her get over the heartbreak of her jilting by Burt Reynolds.  He looks like he thinks - but isn't entirely sure - that he's just been goosed.

As is so often the case, one question comes inevitably to mind:  what do you suppose they talked about?

  1. Living in parallel dimensions as they did, I've no idea what they talked about. (Maybe how much they hated Sally Field?) But I will say that Miss Shore had a habit of poor fashion choices, which were displayed daily on her talk show. That was part of the reason for tuning in!

  2. She's so off her tits on Tamazepam she probably thinks it's Burt. And he's so stoned he's probably talking to the curtains... Jx

  4. All musicians always talk about money. Bankers talk about pussy.

  5. All of this has me trying to sing "Buttons and Bows" Dylanesquely. It's not pretty.
