Marsha, Marsha, Marsha

I remember seeing (your call) legendary / brilliant / under-rated / beautiful, etc. actress-activist Marsha Hunt as a guest on, of all things, a Saturday night Soupy Sales local WABC special, also with Kent Smith.  The date was 9/9/73. The premise of the program was Soupy going back in time and being part of the cast of a film noir satire starring Hunt and Smith. Almost the entire show was in black and white. Unless one has the unlikely perspicacity to google, in one search, "Marsha Hunt" "Soupy Sales," you'd most likely not come across the "hit" for it. It's one of the few episodes of her professional life I've run past Ms. Hunt that she doesn't recall. Maybe she's TRYING to deep six it?, but it really was a very funny outing. I would love to see it again.
