Newsday TV Book, June 4-10, 1972.

Don Rickles, who looked like brown egg even back then, shows his exasperation with a lousy script on the cover of this 1972 Newsday TV book.

Did Englebert Humperdinck? Can Eve Plumb? Does Mike "Touch" Connors? Find out today in TV Line!

Obscure Long Island Advertising Character: The O-Co-Nee Indian! (And the men who will do the job for you. The women don't count.)
Remember "The Bold Ones?" Carol Wayne? Will Geer? Burl Ives? Then why the hell are you reading this?
A not-especially-interesting Viskupic pic for the 104th Belmont Stakes at Elmont, but any Viskupic is better than none, I always say...
An appropriately boring back cover for a boring issue. Although it's always nice to see an ad with a giant blurb enthusing "soot free!"
