A landmark movie for me
I saw this movie in a theater in the fall of 1974. It was the first R-rated movie I ever saw! The movie was advertised in TV, radio and newspapers as being released for a week to qualify for the Oscars as a documentary (the critic who reviewed it for the L.A. Times had a big issue with that, but still gave the film a lukewarm review). All the classic "bloopers" (Uncle Don, sports and news reporters, even Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds") are here...all packaged into a feature film. The other reviewer is right...you won't see any of this on TV...not without the bleeper button and the editor's scissors!! Lots of nudity and profanity...the commercial announcer said "you'll laugh for hours!" Indeed...I can still remember scenes from this movie 36 years later!! One would think it'd be out on video/DVD but it doesn't seem to be...one would think with the "blooper" series of the 1980s and the reality series of the last few years it'd be available...maybe it's a legal issue...??!! Get it resolved and give us the bloopers!! As Kermit Schafer said, "To forgive is human, to err is divine!!"
