Here's Johnny Carson and Robyn Hilton, 1974. Any ideas why he's smirking?

Back in the day, Johnny Carson was the coolest. The Tonight Show was the only gig in town. There was no Late Show or Jimmy Kimmel Live - Johnny had the market cornered for making or breaking a star. If you sat on Johnny's couch, that meant you had made it in Hollywood.

Robyn Hilton was an American movie and TV actress who made her mark during the 70s and 80s. She has the notoriety of appearing fully-clothed, twice, in Playboy. Hilton is best known for her role in the 1974 Mel Brooks' comedy film, Blazing Saddles. Here she is on January 17, 1974 - making Johnny smirk.
