Arlene Francis on WML After Tragic Accident This is the introduction of the What's My Line panelists for June 26, 1960. It was the night after a freak accident, originating from Arlene Francis' Manhattan home, in which an unfortunate passerby was killed. Arlene lived in an eighth-floor apartment at the Ritz Tower at the corner of Park Avenue and 57th Street. Eight-pound weightlifting dumbbells were used to prop open a screen window of the apartment where an air conditioning unit had been removed. On the night before this show aired, while Arlene was in Connecticut peforming in a play, a maid accidentally knocked a dumbbell out the window. It struck a luckless pedestrian on the street below and killed him! The victim, Alvin M. Rodecker, a financier from Detroit, was visiting New York City with his wife to celebrate his 60th birthday. (Rodecker's wife noted the last thing her husband said was what a wonderful time he was having.) In 1962 Francis paid Rodecker's estate $175,000 in an out-of-court settlement. The Ritz Tower paid $10,000. John Daly congratulates Arlene on appearing so soon on WML after the awful incident.

Diffrent Strokes cast photo This is a cast photo from Diff'rent Strokes, a popular NBC sitcom that ran from 1978 through 1985. The show was about a Park Avenue millionaire widower who decides to adopt two black kids. (I'm sure that happens all the time!) The cst members were Todd Bridges as Willis, Conrad Bain as Mr. Drummond, Dana Plato as Kimberley, and Gary Coleman as Arnold. Today the show is cynically remembered for the legal and social troubles that befell its youthful stars. A Johnny Carson Carnac routine summed it up best: The answer is coffee, donuts, and a Diff'rent Strokes cast member. The question is name three things you find in the back seat of a police car!

Shirley Temple in Young People Shirley Temple, Jackie Oakie, and Charlotte Greenwood perform Fifth Avenue in the film Young People (1940). This was Shirley's last childhood movie for 20th Century Fox. Her contract was allowed to expire after six years because she was no longer the cute little girl she once was. Life can be tough when you're an old lady of 12 years...

1903 World Series Photo One of my favorite sports photos. It was taken at Boston's Huntington Avenue Base Ball Grounds sometime during the 1903 World Series. Some captions claim it was taken before the first game. Other captions claim it was taken after the seventh game. Notice the fans standing behind ropes in the outfield. This was a common practise in those days to squeeze more paying customers into sold out games. Special ground rules had to be made to deal with batted balls that flew or rolled into the crowd.
