Melissa Manchester ain’t no Ella Fitzgerald…..as we at ImaSportsphile don’t think she can break a crystal glass with one of her high notes…..whereas, we are pretty dang sure that Ella can….and when you think of Memorex tv ads….you think of Ella Fitzgerald.  

The Thorn Birds is an American television miniseries broadcast on ABC from March 27 to 30, 1983….which starred Richard Chamberlain, Rachel Ward, Barbara Stanwyck, Christopher Plummer, Piper Laurie, Jean Simmons, Richard Kiley, Bryan Brown, Mare Winningham and Philip Anglim….while being directed by Daryl Duke….and based on a novel of the same name by Colleen McCullough.
