More highlights from the Paul Lynde Halloween special

To capitalize on the then huge song “Convoy” and television show “Movin’ On” there is a musical nightmare where Lynde (in a sequin jumpsuit with enormous lapels) and Conway play truckers dueling for the love of Pinky Tuscadero (Roz Kelly). …

There are other diversions, such as when Lynde becomes a sheik who kidnaps Florence Henderson (who he falls for after seeing her milk a cobra). He tries everything to win her heart, even sharing a decanter of hyena wine with her. In the end, she is won over by a gift of a cockatoo “once owned by Baretta,” leading to the most unerotic kiss in screen history.

Lamentably, there are no clips.
