The curtain for The Mighty Macs rises with Cathy Rush (played by a surprisingly blonde Carla Gugino) driving her VW Bus through the Pennsylvania countryside to interview for the basketball coach position at the Catholic girls-only Immaculata College. The radio gives us the latest bulletins. News flash: Richard Nixon, running for reelection, won't pull U.S. troops out of Vietnam. Extra: feminists are demanding equal pay or some such. We don't hear the whole thing because Rush finds it tedious and switches it off.
