Jan and Dean Surf City Video Jan Berry and Dean Torrence, both born in Los Angeles, began singing together as a duo after football practice at University High School. They first performed on stage as The Barons at a high school dance. Their first commercial success was "Jennie Lee" (1958), a top 10 ode to a local, Hollywood, Ca, burlesque performer that Jan Berry recorded with fellow Baron Arnie Ginsburg. "Jan & Arnie" released three singles in all. After Torrence returned from a stint in the army reserves, Jan Berry and Dean Torrence began to make music as "Jan and Dean". Jan and Dean's commercial peak came between 1963 and 1966, as the duo scored an impressive sixteen Top 40 hits on the Billboard and Cash Box magazine charts, with a total of twenty-six chart hits over eight years. Jan and Brian Wilson collaborated on roughly a dozen hits and album cuts for Jan and Dean, including the number one national hit "Surf City" in 1963. Subsequent top 10 hits included "Drag City" (1963), "The Little Old Lady from Pasadena" (1964), and the eerily portentous "Dead Man's Curve" (1964). On April 12,1966, Berry received severe head injuries in a motor vehicle accident, ironically just a short distance from Dead Man's Curve in Los Angeles, two years after the song had become a hit. He was angry while driving because he had learned he was to be inducted into the military when had already completed two years of medical school, which he had been secretly attending. Berry had also separated from his girlfriend of seven years. As a result of his accident, Jan and Dean did not perform again until the mid-1970s, after the release of the feature film Deadman's Curve in 1978, which opened the doors for Jan and Dean to launch a successful and amazing comeback especially for Jan Berry. On February 3, 1978, CBS aired a made-for-TV movie about the duo entitled Deadman's Curve. The biopic starred Richard Hatch as Jan Berry and Bruce Davison as Dean Torrence, as well as appearances by Dick Clark, Wolfman Jack, and Mike Love and Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys. Following the release of the film, the duo made steps toward an official comeback that year, including touring with the Beach Boys. In the early 1980s, while Berry struggled to overcome drug addiction, Torrence toured briefly as "Mike & Dean," with Mike Love of the Beach Boys. But Berry got sober, beating the odds once again, and the duo reunited for good. Jan and Dean continued to tour on their own throughout the 1980s, 1990s, and into the new millennium with 1960s nostalgia providing them with a ready audience. On August 31, 1991, Berry married Gertie Filip at The Stardust Convention Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada. Torrence was Berry's best man at the wedding. Jan and Dean ended with Jan Berry's death on March 26, 2004, at the age of 62. Berry was an organ donor, and his body was cremated. On April 18, 2004, a "Celebration of Life" was held in Jan's memory at The Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California. Celebrities attending the event included Dean Torrence, Lou Adler, Jill Gibson, and Nancy Sinatra. Also present were many family members, friends, and musicians associated with Jan and Dean and the Beach Boys.

Who Killed The Red Baron This is an interesting documentary clip about the Red Baron's last flight. On April 21, 1918, Germany's Manfred von Richthofen (known more familiarly to the world as The Red Baron) was shot down in France while pursuing Canadian aviator Wop May. For years there was considerable debate about who actually fired the fatal shot that killed Richthofen. A Canadian pilot named Roy Brown was given credit for the kill by the Royal Flying Corps. The Australians gave credit to one of their machine gunners on the ground. Modern forensic investigations tend to favor the Australian claim.

Cleveland Barons Here's a sports trivia question to stump your friends: What was the last team in the four major professional sports leagues to fold? Answer: The National Hockey League's Cleveland Barons. The Barons began as the Oakland Seals in 1967. The Seals moved from California to Cleveland in 1976 after nine unsuccessful seasons on the west coast. In Ohio they failed to attract a following in two more unsuccessful seasons. The NHL allowed the Barons to merge with the financially strapped Minnesota North Stars for the 1978-79 season. The Cleveland Barons thus became the first NHL team to fold since 1942.

Michael Jordan - Baseball Career The sports world was stunned by Michael Jordan's sudden retirement from the NBA in 1993. Equally surprising, in 1994 the 31-year-old Jordan decided to pursue a career as a professional baseball player in the Chicago White Sox organization. He spent the 1994 season as an outfielder with the AA Birmingham Barons of the Southern League. Jordan recorded 88 hits in 436 at-bats for a paltry .202 batting average. He had three home runs, 51 RBIs, and stole 30 bases. Defensivley he committed 11 errors and had a .952 fielding percentage. Jordan returned to the NBA in 1995.

Citizen Kane - Final Scene This is the final scene of what many film critics consider the greatest movie ever made: Citizen Kane (1941). The movie begins with the lonely death of Charles Foster Kane (based on the life of William Randolph Hearst) in his vast gated mansion. Kane's dying word was "Rosebud!" A reporter wants to know the significance of the word so he tracks down and interviews colleagues of the deceased great man. Kane's life is shown in retrospect from childhood until his death. Kane's mother had run a boarding house in Colorado. She acquired the deed to a mine in lieu of payment from a boarder. The mine provided enormous wealth for young Kane who lived a life of privilege and became famous as a mud-raking newspaper baron and a scandal-plagued failed political candidate. So what's the significance of Rosebud? It was the name of his sled he had when he was an ordinary child. It means everything...or nothing at all. It's up to the viewer to decide.
