It's a rare day when I don't find a reason to look up something at
IMDB. Usually several somethings,
and usually because I saw an old television episode or heard a mention
of a movie and wondered whatever happened to that actress or where
I've seen that guy before. Today's example started as I scanned
through the new album listings at the iTMS and came upon the name of
Hamilton Camp. There was a Hamilton Camp who used to show up as a
guest on a lot of television during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Could it be
It could, and it is. Welcome to Hamilton Camp is a
collection of folk tunes by the old actor, who, according to the ITMS,
has the honor of being part of two of the worst failures on
television, each of which was cancelled after a single episode aired.
(One, as I recall the story, was actually cancelled at the first
commercial break.) Fortunately, his singing wasn't the cause. At
least I don't think it was; the IMDB is silent on that point.
