Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 27, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa JO The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed., November 27, 1974 Television Today 'Annie, Hoods' Not So Good NEW YORK (ARI - Even though Thanksgiving isn't until Thursday, ABC-TV is giving us a turkey anyway, Wednesday. They're calling it “Annie and the Hoods” and claiming it is a music and comedy show. It stars Anne Bancroft, the gifted actress whose first TV variety special won an Emmy award four years ago. This one starts with some male dancers dancing. They are dressed like hoods. But the hoods to which tile show's title refers aren’t mobsters,. They are skits with such titles as Womanhood, the Other Womanhood. Likelihood, Bachelorhood, Adult-hood and Motherhood. Each skit features a famous male — Jack Benny, Gene Wilder, Tony Curtis. Alan Alda. David Merrick (he produced “The Great Gatsby”), Robert Merrill, Carl Reiner and Miss Bancroft’s husband, Mel Brooks. Most of the skits are the very sophisticated kind you used to see in Fun City’s intimate boites. A boite is a joint where, if you pop a button. a water hurls a tablecloth on it and seats a party of six. * * * A good example of this humor, is to be found in the show’s opening Bachelorhood skit in which B. and Merrill arrive at this pad after a night on the town. She obviously appears ready to fool around. He pours a snifter of brandy, puts a record on and sidles over. She turns her head up, prepared to kiss. He starts singing, “Strangers in the Night”. She gets annoyed. A high note by Merrill shatters the snifter. Finally, the song ends. They kiss. “Do you know ‘Some En-chanted Evening ?” she breathes. It is the sigh point of the evening. The rest — save for a reading of an Ogden Nash poem with Alda and a song to a baby who keeps staring at the camera — will cause only snores or channel changes. I had a faint hope for a skit in which Carl Reiner, a brilliant comic actor and writer, played a BBC man interviewing a gaudy New York stripper who is in London to marry Prince Charles. By Jay Sharbutt--- The stripper, Man Listed Fair after C. R. Crash Holiday Weekend Long for Many played by Miss Bancroft with the help of chewing gum, was named Bambi Levine. My hope grew fainter at that. It died altogether when she said and I quote: “I want to bt' remembered as the queen who brought soft toilet paper to your country.” Many government offices will schedule I remain closed until Monday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
