Glen Campbell and Barbara Cook!

The Rhinestone Cowboy’s Goodtime Hour is up, and Marian the librarian has sent out her final overdue notice today!

This poster makes out like La Boeuf is the star! Weird!

Singer and part-time actor Glen Campbell sold over 45 million albums in his career, featuring such huge hits on the country and adult contemporary charts as “Wichita Lineman,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Gentle on My Mind,” and “Rhinestone Cowboy.” He was the original La Boeuf in 1969’s True Grit, and sang the Oscar nominated title song, while concurrently hosting the eponymous Goodtime Hour on CBS from ’69 to ’72. King of All Media, Glen Campbell!

Theater! (Or theatre, depending how snobby you are!)

With the exception of awards shows, documentaries, and a stint on the original 1960’s Match Game, Barbara Cook didn’t have a ton of TV/film appearances to familiarize herself with your average Johnny Boob Tube of the later part of the century. She was a rarity of this era – a pure stage actress who was also a huge star, appearing in dozens of musicals both original and revivals, winning a Tony for originating the role of Marian in The Music Man, before transitioning into lounge and cabaret work later in life. Other notable productions include Candide, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Oklahoma, Carousel, Show Boat, and the epic 1988 disaster musical adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie, leaving the production in out-of-town tryouts before it imploded on Broadway. Wise move!

And the Gardons secure their best ever year with 29 points on Campbell, moving them to seventh overall, and marking a fourth straight year increasing their total starting in their rookie season of ’13, with 68, 90, 108, 123, and 132 points! Meanwhile, Kevin nets a second death in three days, putting him over 100 for the fourth straight year and extending his Delver lead. Good job, folks!

Replacement picks due by next Wednesday!
