Ann-Margret ...
When You're Smiling (1973)

Rod Taylor appears in a movie clip presented on this one-hour musical variety show broadcast by NBC on April 4, 1973.

This show was an edited version of Ann-Margret's Las Vegas stage act and drew more than 51 million TV viewers.

Just before making a costume change during the stage act, Ann-Margret introduced a film clip of highlights and behind-the-scenes footage of "The Train Robbers," which she had just finished shooting in Durango, Mexico.

At the end of the film clip is a sequence of Ann-Margret and Rod Taylor doing some target shooting. She tosses up a tin can, he aims his rifle at it, fires, and shoots the can right through the middle. Then, it's her turn. Rod tosses up the can, she aims ... mis-aims ... shoots, and Rod's hat flies off!

It's all a gag, very much silent-movie style. Ann-Margret and Rod look like they're having a blast.
