The Time Machine: Mar. 1, 1976

It was a performance fit for the Queen of Kitsch. With a yellow Rolls-Royce as her carriage and the Harvard marching band for footmen, Singer Bette Midler trouped into Cambridge, Mass., last week to collect her Woman of the Year award from Hasty Pudding, the university’s 181-year-old theatrical club.

“I’ve showered, shaved and F.D.S.ed myself into a stupor,” announced Midler, who happily accepted a gold brassiere from club officials and a third-row seat for the annual Hasty Pudding drag musical.

Proclaiming the presentation “the most tasteful event with which my name has ever been associated,” the Divine Miss M then offered some entertainment of her own: a song and dance number that ended with a skirt-lifting spin to reveal her derriere.
