Richard Harris
Golden Rendezvous
HBO presents an American t premiere! A suspenseful, nerve-tingling drama of hijacking on the high seas. This tale of piracy on a cargo ship/gambling casino bound for the Caribbean was written by the master of suspense Alistair MacLean (Guns of Navarone, Ice Station Zebra). Richard Harris stars as the ship’s officer who suspects foul play. Fine performances also by Burgess Meredith, David Janssen, John Carradine and Ann Turkel. Some violence. (1:43) May 18,22,26,30
The Osmonds
It’s the Osmonds all right, but this time in a slick, glittery nightclub act that has wowed audiences everywhere! They’re doing things you’ve never seen them do on TV before. They’re all there: Donny and Marie (yes, they sing On the Shelf), the Brothers and the rocking Resurrection Shuffle, and Jimmy, who leads the whole family in a smashing finale. It’s another HBO presentation of a top nightclub show! May 19,23,28,31
