Cass' Mom, Bess.....

Postby CassFanForLife » Fri Mar 25, 2011 8:02 am

The pix I've seen of Cass' Mom, Bess on here and the internet, and of course that youtube clip of Cass on Johnny Carson when they should the clip of her and her mom, on " Cass Elliot Day " in Baltimore , when Cass was accepting her diploma, etc. Her Mom strikes me as a very comedic gal, and it shows....Cass definitely inherited her Mom's humour.... In the pix, it shows how both ladies are enjoying themselves !! Is Bess still alive or has she since passed on ? Just was wondering.... I always laugh whenever i see the pix !!

My grandmother passed away in 1994. She was the greatest.

if my memory serves me right, Bess was on the other Cass special, which hopefully will be released some day and this delightful woman was on, don't quote me on this as I kind of remember, was on The Dating Game.

I wish that we had the Cass/Bess dating game show and the Michelle episode but they never show up when the show is run on Game Network. I remember reading a list of the 'surviving' episodes and the Cass/Bess/Michelle episodes were not on it.

Hi John,
I remeber seeing a pic of Michelle on the Dating Game, and once years ago I saw a re-run of Cass's episode, I forget what channel. I remeber that Cass and the winner ended up winnig a trip to London, England. I vividly remeber Cass's response to winning the trip: "I Love London!" Great episode. They don't make skows like that anymore.
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

Hi john and Nicole....I recall watching the Dating Game growing up in the 70s ( i was born in '69), althiough, I don't recall the Cass one, now that you've mentioned it, I would have loved to have seen that one now , oh well. I thankyou both for your remembrances of the episode, i get a sense from you both abou that episode....Cass certainly would of been ecstatic about going to London !!! I can just see her facial expression now....lol !!!! One happy woman :)

good for you Nicole. At least we now know that the Cass episode survived. It might have been the 'Game Network' that you saw it on.

Have a good day.
