Invitation to the "Every 7-year Anniversary Party" for Dick and Kari Clark
Invitation, unsigned, 1 page, 7½x7½. Invitation imprinted, in part: "July 7th, 1977/Kari and Dick Clark got married/It's time again for our.../Every-7-Year-Anniversary Party!!!" The event was to be held on Saturday Evening, August 1, 1998 at 7:00 p.m. at the couple's beach house in Malibu. The dress was "Casual/Elegant". Invitation is imprinted on a thin sheet that is affixed over a photograph, color, 4x4, of Clark and Kari at their wedding ceremony. The photograph is affixed to a gold sheet that is affixed to a slightly larger cardboard. A gold ribbon, with tiny shells affixed at each end, is looped through a hole punched at the upper left corner. Clark had married his third wife, the former Kari Wigton, on July 7, 1977 (7-7-77) at 7:00 p.m. The father of actor John Davidson officiated at the ceremony. The couple appeared together as co-hosts of his Rockin' New Year's Eve program. In the year this anniversary party was held, the busy Clark executive produced The 25th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, The 26th Annual American Music Awards and the Donny & Marie variety show. He also produced and hosted TV Censored Bloopers 98 and appeared in four TV specials: TV Guide's 40th Anniversary, Bobby Darin: Beyond the Song, Connie Francis: America's Sweetheart of Song and Motown 40: The Music is Forever. Clark had previously been married (1952-1961) to his childhood sweetheart, Barbara Mallery (the couple had one child), and to second wife (1962-1971), Loretta Martin (the couple had two children). Richard Wagstaff "Dick" Clark (1929-2012) began his career in broadcasting as a radio disc jockey on WFIL in 1952, then took over the local Bandstand program (1956-1957), which went on national TV as American Bandstand in 1957. Clark hosted the show for 30 years (1957-1987), and, especially in the early years, exerted a great influence on the styles and musical tastes of young Americans. At the same time, Clark's strict dress code and preference for milder music helped rock music gain acceptance by parents. Clark has also hosted a number of TV specials, including his annual Rockin' New Year's Eve shows (which he missed for the first time in 32 years after he suffered a minor stroke in late 2004) and game shows, and has produced a long list of TV programs and specials. He has also promoted the American Music Awards as an alternative to the Grammys.Mounting sheet is lightly creased at blank corners, photo mount is lightly creased at lower margin.
