Now I can finally put together that Lightfoot documentary!

Thanks char. This is great. As already mentioned, in the States we never recieved anything about Gord in the media. Never really got to see the man just be himself much.

It is interesting to me that for a guy who always said he disliked doing TV--I guess he didn't think he came off so well--he seemed much more the showman in his earlier days. Maybe he just does better with strong direction.

I was also suprised to see a bare-back (and front) lady in a TV special from the 60s. Seems strange they would put such a thing in a railroad camp. Did women sleep topless in the 1800s, or do we assume she was a lady of the evening (in a railroad camp??) For the family hour that just seemed strange.
