Hot L Baltimore - Sitcom Flop 1975 ABC had high hopes when its risque and controversial sitcom Hot L Baltimore debuted in 1975. Ultimately, though, the show never captured the hearts of TV viewers and was summarily axed less than five months into its run. The show, based on a successful off-Broadway play, took place in the rundown Hotel Baltimore in Baltimore, MD. It drew its title from the cheap establishment's neon marquee, which had a burned-out letter "e" that had never been replaced. The half-hour series premiered on January 24, 1975 and was produced by Norman Lear for ABC. (It was, in fact, the first Lear property to air on ABC.) The cast included Conchata Ferrell, James Cromwell, Richard Masur, Al Freeman, Jr., Gloria LeRoy, Jeannie Linero, and Charlotte Rae. The show's plots focused on the lives of the odd assemblage of disparate characters who called the seedy hotel home. The series had several controversial elements, including two primary characters who were prostitutes--one of whom was an illegal immigrant--and one of the first gay couples to be depicted on an American television series. Because of its storylines, Hot L Baltimore was the first network television show to have a warning during its opening, cautioning viewers about mature themes. ABC gave Hot L Baltimore a full publicity campaign, but it failed to win an audience and was canceled after just 13 episodes; its last telecast was June 6, 1975. This series is notable as the first failure for producer Norman Lear after a very successful streak of mega-hit TV series beginning with All in the Family in 1971 and continuing with Sanford and Son, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, among others.

Larry Hagman Talks of Dallas Cancer and Veganism Dallas star Larry Hagman received a frightening cancer diagnosis last year, just a few weeks shy of filming the re-launch of the popular series. In the time since, a lot has changed for the 81-year-old TV veteran.

Barbara Eden on The Andy Griffith Show Before she became well known for playing the title role on the sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, the gorgeous Barbara Eden appeared in a very amusing 1962 episode of The Andy Griffith Show titled "The Manicurist." Eden played a visiting manicurist named Ellen Brown who charmed her way into working in a corner of Floyd's Barber Shop. Her stunning good looks create sexual tension in small-town Mayberry! Here's an eight-minute clip from that show.

Brook Benton Rainy Night In Georgia 1970 Great comeback record for Brook following several years without a hit. Written in 1962 by Tony Joe White who is probably best known for "Polk Salad Annie". This recording always makes me feel a little sad for some reason. Not sure why. But it's a good sad.

Sad Final Years of Jerry Quarry Jerry Quarry was an extremely popular heavyweight fighter whose best years unfortunately coincided with the heydays of both Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Quarry was a two-fisted slugger who possessed suprising mobility in the ring. A fine overall athlete, Quarry was a finalist in ABC's Superstars in 1974. His popularity landed him cameo appearances on TV shows such as Adam-12, I Dream of Jeannie, and Batman. However, Quarry's long career in the ring--he had about 200 amateur bouts and 66 pro fights--took a heavy toll. In 1983, six years after his last fight, Quarry and two other boxers volunteered to take neurological exams for a Sports Illustrated feature on the harmful effects of boxing. Although Quarry seemed perfectly healthy and alert, his test results were shockingly bad. By the mid 1990s, pugilistic dementia, commonly known "being punch drunk" had set in. This sad feature on Quarry was shot in 1995 when he was just 50 years old. He was under the care of his brother because he was unable to take care of himself anymore. Quarry was hospitalized in late December 1998 with pneumonia and died of cardiac arrest on January 3, 1999. He was just 53 years old.

Shirley Temple First On-Screen Kiss The 1942 comedy Miss Annie Rooney was a bit of a dud. Fourteen-year-old Shirley Temple plays the title character--a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who becomes the romantic interest of wealthy Marty White (played by Our Gang alumnus Dickie Moore). The flick is remembered by movie and trivia buffs for one awkward scene in which Shirley is romantically kissed for the first time in her storied movie career. Dozens of news photographers were present to record the "end of innocence" moment for posterity. As you will see, it wasn't much of a kiss. Decades later Moore--who was utterly terrified to be the first actor to woo Shirley--described the kiss as "tepid" and "pathetic". It was the first time Moore, who was 16, had ever kissed a girl either on-screen or off-screen.
