November 19th

Diana Ross and the Supremes and The Temptations appear on The Ed Sullivan Show.  Both groups perform separately and together, doing a medley of each other's hits (including The Temptations' hits "Get Ready" and "My Girl", performed by Diana Ross and the Supremes and "Stop! In The Name Of Love" and "Baby Love" performed by The Temptations.)  They then perform The Temptations' hit "(I Know) I'm Losing You" together.  Diana Ross and the Supremes also solo on "In And Out Of Love" and "Thou Swell" and "Greensleeves" while The Temptations take center stage on "Hello Young Lovers" and "Don't Look Back".   The mash-up works so well the two groups will cohost a television special together in the near future.

An hour later, Paul Revere and the Raiders appear on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour where they perform their new single "Peace Of Mind".  

Things haven't cooled down at all for Disney's "The Jungle Book".  Last week's box office receipts were just under $3.7 million … and this week … in its FIFTH week of release, box office sales only fall off to $3.6 million!  In fact, to date, the film has taken in about right around $20 million over the past five weeks.  

In Viet Nam, The Tiger Force, an elite US Army Unit of the 101st Airborne Division, achieved their 327th kill.  US Army Lt. Col. Gerald Morse had called for the 327 kills to match the name of the 327th infantry regiment.
