When hearing his trademark into, I always think, "Hold it, Frazier, I'm not quite ready yet!"

The way the logo does a sort of flip-wipe onto the screen is tacky, IMO. Someone obviously wanted to show off their new digital effects.

Was there a Broadway musical in the mid 1970's called Shenandoah which was based on this film and novel?

The same perky actress is seen in a 1976 commercial for Fab laundry detergent at 0:30 into this YouTube clip.

Good clip. I'm pretty sure the music is borrowed from Dan Curtis' 1968 Jekyll and Hyde starring Jack Palance.

The dark haired girl in the Sani-Flush ad looks familiar-and sounds like Mary Tyler Moore.
