Louis-Roper Fight  - 1939 During Joe Louis' long reign as world heavyweight champion, there weren't many quality contenders who could give him a good tussle. Case in point: On April 17, 1939, Louis defended his crown against Jack Roper in the challenger's hometown of Los Angeles. Here is the complete fight in which Roper was separated from his senses inside of one round. Roper's career record was a mediocre 63-43-10. No wonder the press began derisively referring to Louis' opponents as the Bum of the Month Club.

Actor with Gone With the Wind opening line dies Fred Crane (pictured on the left), the one-time actor whose Southern accent won him a slot as one of Scarlett O'Hara's beaux and the opening line in "Gone With the Wind," has died. Crane, who played one of the Tarleton twins in the 1939 classic, was 90. His wife, Terry Lynn Crane, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he died on Thursday of complications from diabetes. She declined to give details. The couple lived in Barnesville south of Atlanta, where they owned a registered historic 1846 Confederate home and Civil War hospital which they operated as Tarleton Oaks, a bed and breakfast that they named for his character in the film, Brent Tarleton. The other Tarleton twin was played by George Reeves, who later gained TV immortality as Superman. Born in New Orleans, Crane stumbled into his role on "Gone With the Wind." He was not yet an actor when he accompanied a cousin who wanted to audition for the movie. The casting director liked the 20-year-old's Southern twang, and he wound up being cast.

Frenchies Bar and Grill As the 1930s came to a close, Kodak came out with Kodachrome film - the first commercially viable color film available to the general public. In 1937 and 1938, the colors were still not stable and accurate, but by 1939 Kodachrome was producing color images of remarkable precision. Not just anybody could buy this film. It cost $5 per roll and had to be sent back to Rochester , New York for development. By comparison, in 1938 Congress established the first minimum wage at 25 cents per hour. $5 represented half a week's work. But the Farm Security Administration sent out about a dozen photographers with this new film.

Last Public Guillotine Execution 1939 Beginning in 1793, death by guillotine was the official method of capital punishment in France. Public executions were the norm and attracted large, enthusiastic crowds. The last criminal to be publicly executed in France was multiple murderer Eugen Weidmann who lost his head on June 17, 1939. His execution was clandestinely filmed by a spectator from his apartment window. (This photo is a frame of that film.) The wild exuberance of the crowd prompted the French government to cease all further public executions. Still, the death penalty remained on the books in France until 1981. The last guillotine customer was torture-murderer Hamida Djandoubi who assumed room temperature, away from the eyes of the public, on September 10, 1977.
