Tracy Brooks Swope and Ken Swofford
4 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

"Queen for a Minute" is yet another male chauvinist episode, Laurie's friend Frankie (Tracy Brooks Swope) turned down by the varsity basketball coach (Ken Swofford, previously seen in "Go Directly to Jail") because she's a girl, Laurie deciding to run for homecoming queen on her usual feminist platform. Meanwhile Keith, who never seems to learn, convinces popular Jerry Bishop (Chris Beaumont) to throw his hat in the ring and run for homecoming queen against his own sister. The results are expected and desultory, with newcomer Derrel Maury making only his second television appearance; best remembered for starring in 1976's "Massacre at Central High," he would reunite with Susan Dey in the 1981 thriller "Looker." Tracy Brooks Swope just happened to be the daughter of PARTRIDGE FAMILY producer Mel Swope. The featured song is the solid rocker "Money, Money" (composed by Wes Farrell, Bobby Hart, and Danny Janssen), released as the B-side of the tenth and final single, "Looking for a Good Time" (issued Nov 1973), both tracks appearing on the eighth and last LP BULLETIN BOARD (issued Oct 1973).
