Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews the lovely Ann-Margret, who was promoting the release of the musical film Tommy. The discussion covers a wide range of topics, including Ann-Margret's reaction to seeing herself on the big screen, her "eye beauty secrets," thoughts on fashion, the challenges of celebrity, family life and the keys to the success of her long marriage to Roger Smith. As an aside, Ann-Margret's stunning cape is noteworthy.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
