Sometimes life is too surreal to be believed. I am a die-hard Janis Joplin fan and several years ago, I was elated that her appearances on the Dick Cavett Show were released in full on DVD. One of the best episodes was from 1970, where just mere months before Janis died, she appeared on the Dick Cavett Show and one of the other guests was actress Raquel Welch. The episode is epic in every way from Janis’ performance of “Get It While You Can,” to her and Raquel engaging in conversation with Dick Cavett. The Cavett box sets that are available on DVD are so great, if you don’t have them or haven’t seen them – I cannot recommend them highly enough. Now that you know the back story, imagine finding out that for a Raquel Welch retrospective film festival, the legendary Dick Cavett would interview Raquel in person to talk about her career?! I hoped that one of the discussion topics would be about Janis and lo and behold – the first part of the interview granted me my wish. I am passing this greatness onto you, so please enjoy watching Dick Cavett and Raquel Welch talking about Janis Joplin on February 11, 2012.
