London Great Smog - 1952 On Friday, December 5, 1952 a substantial fog rolled across London, England. This was not a particularly rare occurrence in that city. What made it memorable and lethal was the fact that it stayed for the better part of four days and basically brought the British capital to a standstill. The first week in December 1952 brought unusually cold weather to Great Britain. An unusual weather system known as an anticyclone moved over London. (Anticyclones are high pressure systems that create stationary surface hazes.) Not only was the thickening mist not moving, the smoke from the city's coal-burning furnaces in homes and offices was also trapped. In the early 1950s, the coal used in most London households was of a lower grade than the type used before the Second World War. (The higher quality coal was saved for export.) It also had a high sulfur content. Because the anticyclone was trapping both the fog and the coal smoke, the city was engulfed in a stinky blanket of mist that made many basic outdoor activities impossible. Driving became a dangerous adventure. City buses moved at a snail's pace, often with policemen preceding them on foot with torches. Within a short while bus service stopped altogether due to the low visibility. (The unaffected London Underground kept its schedule, however). Private cars were abandoned on the streets. Most outdoor activities, including sports events, were cancelled. The smog became so bad that it began to seep into indoor venues. Movie theaters and concert halls had to cancel shows because of diminished visibility. Finally, after four days of intense smog, a new weather system cleared London's skies on Tuesday, December 9. However, about 4,000 Londoners died from respiratory illnesses shortly thereafter related to breathing the unhealthy coal smoke. Health officials later put the death toll at about 12,000 from the lingering effects of what became known as The Great Smog. In 1956 the British parliament passed the Clean Air Act which mandated pollution controls and restricted furnaces to burning pollution-free fuels. The legislation worked. London has not experienced anything even close to The Great Smog of 1952 in all the years since then.

Dorothy Kilgallen Here's a fun segment from the March 21, 1954 episode of What's My Line. Longtime WML panelist Dorothy Kilgallen had given birth to her third child, Kerry, just two days before, so she was absent from the show. Infant Kerry's two older siblings, Dickie (12) and Jill (10), appear as co-mystery guests and have the esteemed panel flummoxed for a while.

The Quiet Man - Fight Scene There's nothing better than a good punch-up! The recent death of actress Maureen O'Hara prompted me to revisit the film The Quiet Man. The climax of the 1952 John Ford classic is the brawl between Sean Thornton (John Wayne) and Will Danaher (Victor McLaglen). Here is more than nine minutes of the famous and comical donnybrook!

1952 Corn Pops Commercial The two stars of The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok, Guy Madison and Andy Devine, promote Kellogg's Corn Pops in this 1952 commercial. The syndicated western ran from 1951 though 1958. More than a dozen feature films were made by combining various TV episodes. Bit of trivia: Andy Devine's very recognizable gravelly voice was the result of an odd childhood accident. He damaged his vocal chords when he fell while he had a stick in his mouth! Although he has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Guy Madison, who died in 1996 at age 74, is largely forgotten in North America. He had greater success in Italy where he stared in low-budget westerns and combat films in the 1960s.
