A quibble about charm person: one of the thing I love the about 1974 LBB rules is the brief, open-to-interpretation spell descriptions, and charm person is one of the standouts in this regard.  Unlike later editions, the spell description doesn't say anything about the victim thinking he's your friend and such; it says "completely under the influence."  That wording (or similar wording) makes the spell potentially much more potent.  And I think it makes charm person much more like the charms you see in fiction or movies (e.g. Indiana Jones coming under the influence of Kali in Temple of Doom).  Just food for thought.
