Frankly, I Wouldn't Mess With Either Of Them.

With the three little words, "Yes I do," today's birthday girl Janis Joplin holds her own against the titanic Gloria Swanson.

Of course the real victor of this tete-a-tete was the viewer.  As Dave, Jay and Conan battle for supremecy in the watered down prescripted informercial world that is now late night talk television, we fondly remember a time when mighty forces, and polar opposites like Swanson and Joplin would come together for a chat with Cavett.  EVEN WHEN THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO SELL!

What our ladies are wearing could not be more opposing, yet both are fantastic. Felix - you go for the Janis look and I'll do Ms. Swanson. and Norma can be Dick. As opposed to being a dick. Which she never is y'know. just sayin.
