The flamboyant Paul Lynde--the ubiquitous center square on TV's HOLLYWOOD SQUARES--hosts this delightfully odd Halloween special from 1976. The witty one-liners fly as Lynde welcomes Margaret Hamilton (donning her Wicked Witch outfit from THE WIZARD OF OZ), rockers KISS (performing three songs amid soaring flames and smoke), and upbeat siblings Donny and Marie Osmond. Joining in on the delirium are party guests Tim Conway (DORF) and Billy Barty (dwarf).
Description by Image Entertainment:
The Paul Lynde Halloween Special aired only once (on October 29, 1976) and featured a "Who's Who" of mid-'70s TV and film stars; Paul held everything together as the ringmaster of a circus that featured Margaret Hamilton (her only prime time TV appearance wearing the full outfit from The Wizard of Oz), Witchie Poo from H.R. Pufnstuf, Donnie and Marie (who had Paul as a regular on their series), Tim Conway, Billy Barty and in their first prime time TV appearance, KISS. They perform three songs but the on-stage conversation with KISS, Paul and Margaret Hamilton is priceless.
