These days, Proctor's in Schenectady hosts family-friendly Broadway touring shows (and even censored The Full Monty, the only theater on the tour to do so), but back in January, 1970 they screened fare of a more adult nature. This FANNY HILL was the Swedish 1968 version, with Diana Kjær in the title role; ANYONE CAN PLAY (1968) was the Paramount release of the French/Italian comeday Le Dolci signore (1968). Neither title has made it to DVD.

Proctor's screened this Disney double-feature in July, 1968; THE ONE AND ONLY, GENUINE, ORIGINAL FAMILY BAND (1968) had an interesting cast, which included Richard Deacon, Goldie Hawn, and Butch Patrick; this was one of the many revivals for BAMBI (1942). Looks like the Schenectady theater closed for a day in respect to Fabian Theatres co-owner Samuel Rosen.
