‚ÄúEntertainer Cher is fed a drink of water through a straw by a stagehand during a pause in the taping of NBC-TV‚Äôs ‚ÄėCher... And Other Fantasies‚Äô in Los Angeles, Ca., Friday, Feb. 16, 1979. Cher is portraying a stylized leopard in a jungle scene.‚ÄĚ (According to the AP caption, anyway.)

‚ÄúCher... And Other Fantasies‚ÄĚ was apparently nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Costume Design for a Limited Series or Special, a well-deserved nod if this photo is representative. Guests included Lucille Ball and Andy Kaufman. Bits and pieces are still available on YouTube; here‚Äôs what that leopard getup looked like in brightly colored action. There were live animals and everything:

This has been your daily dose of Cher.
