7 November 1965 - MGM's 'Get yourself a college girl' became 'Turma Bossa Nova' in Portuguese. Maybe because it had Brazil's own Astrud Gilberto singing 'Girl from Ipanema' among rock groups and rhythm'n'blues combos.

Now Arrelia plus Pimentinha (his sidekick), Henrique and Seyssel Family of clowns played at Ibirapuera's arena. Soon they would literally vanish and circus would only be in the outskirts of town to utterly die out before the 1970s ended. 

13 November 1965 - at Cine Republica a typical Paulista movie: Geraldo Vietri's 'Quatro brasileiros em Paris' having the whole cast of TV Tupi's telenovelas like Amilton Fernandes & Guy Lupe who were the romantic pair in 'O direito de nascer', Sergio Galvão who was a Radio Bandeirantes DJ who played rock music; heart throb Jean Carlo, 'bad girl' Georgia Gomide who made a point of playing 'evil women' and Laura Cardoso who would have one of the longest career in Brazilian show business ever.

12 December 1965 - This is the last time TV Record send a 'Jovem Guarda' ad to Estadao. See that Cauby Peixoto is Roberto Carlos's special guest star. Cauby was not exactly a 'rock singer' but he had sung a rock tune in 1959's flick 'Minha sogra é da policia' in which rock-agitator Carlos Imperial took part along with his proteges Roberto Carlos & Erasmo Carlos who were now stars on their own right; João Gilberto performs at Teatro Record on Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday 19 December 1965.
