Bobby Fischer plays… Dinah Shore?

Chess champ Bobby Fischer examines the chess board against an unlikely opponent: Dinah Shore. There's an explanation, of course: this was on her TV talk show Dinah's Place in 1973. That was a year after Fischer defeated Boris Spassky to claim the world chess championship. Presumably Bobby and Dinah later switched specialties and had a singing competition with her hit "Buttons and Bows."
