Description:
"Laugh-In" Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award. Broadcast from 1968 to 1973 on NBC, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In provided a heady dose of comedy and biting satire during a turbulent period in history, and in the process boosted the careers of Goldie Hawn, Lily Tomlin, and others. This genuine Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award was used on the show in the recurring segment that "lauded" noteworthy, dubious achievements by celebrities or government officials. Recipients of this uncoveted award included then Los Angeles Chief of Police Ed Davis, who suggested that gallows be put in all airports so hijackers could be hung on the spot; the City of Cleveland for their Cuyahoga River (it caught fire due to its high pollution levels); William F. Buckley for his philosophy "Never clarify tomorrow what you can obscure today"; and the Pentagon, a five-time winner of the Nifty Knuckle. The bronze hand-with-winged-finger statuette is mounted atop a wooden base, which stands 9.5" tall and is stamped "copyright George Schlatter and Ed Friendly productions -- Romart 1969" on the bottom, and is in Excellent condition with very minor wear.
