Biograph Girl Florence Lawrence Canadian born Florence Lawrence was America's first big movie star--but no one knew her name. During the first decade of the twentieth century, movie companies did not publicize their actors' names in order to keep their salaries down. Florence Lawrence made dozens of films for D.W. Griffith's Biograph Company and became the studio's most noteworthy star. Nevertheless she remained anonymous. Known to her fans only as 'the Biograph girl,' she was earning just $25 per week. When she left Biograph in 1910 to join the newly formed IMP company, her new studio started a false rumor that she had been killed in a streetcar accident in St. Louis. It then announced that 'the Biograph girl' was Florence Lawrence. She was alive and well and about to star in a new film for IMP. This was likely the first Hollywood publicity stunt. Lawrence appeared in more than 300 films, but her popularity waned almost as quickly as it had grown. By the 1920s she had only uncredited bit roles and was earning $75 per week. The Great Depression ruined her finanacially and she endured three unhappy marriages. In December 1938, a week before 53rd birthday, Lawrence committed suicide by ingesting ant paste.

Ontario Anti Smoking Poster When the Canadian province of Ontario was debating outlawing smoking in restaurants and bars, this was one of the posters it used. The argument was that wait staff, cooks, bartenders, and so on, deserve a smoke-free environment. It worked. Ontario has gone completely smoke-free in bars and restaurants.

Mabel Normand Mabel Normand was probably the most successful comedienne of the silent screen era. Nobody know exactly when she was born. Sources list 1892, 1893, and 1895 as possible years for Mabel's birth. She started to appear in movies in 1909 and was one of Mack Sennett's bathing beauties. By 1913 Mabel was writing, directing, and starring in films. Like any good movie star, Mabel was involved in a few scandals. Sadly she died of tuberculosis in 1930 and is only well known to silent films buffs today.

Lopez Vs  Malvarez 1978 Some months ago I posted a 1979 Sports Illustrated cover featuring exciting world featherweight champion Danny 'Little Red' Lopez. Here he is defending his title against Argentina's Juan Malvarez on September 15, 1978 in a short but dramatic contest. Lopez was a notoriously slow starter who often got decked early by his opponent. Lopez would invariably roar back and score a knockout...like he did here.

Cliff Richard  We Dont Talk Anymore from 1979 Sir Cliff Richard, OBE (born Harry Rodger Webb on 14 October 1940 is an English singer, actor and businessman. With his backing band The Shadows, Richard dominated the British popular music scene in the late 1950s and early 1960s, before and during the The Beatles' first year in the charts. A conversion to Christianity and subsequent softening of his music led to his having more of a pop than rock image. He never achieved the same impact in the United States despite several chart singles there, but he has remained a popular music, film, and television personality in the UK and he retains a following in other countries. During six decades, Cliff Richard has charted many singles, and holds the record (with Elvis Presley) as the only act to make the UK singles charts in all of its decades (1950s2000s). According to his website, he has sold more than 250 million records.On the British charts, Richard has had more than 120 singles, albums and EPs make the top 20, more than any other artist.
