Final Ed Sullivan Show - 1971 The Ed Sullivan Show (called The Toast of the Town until 1955) debuted on CBS on June 20, 1948. The first season it aired live on Sundays from 9 to 10 p.m. For the next 22 years it aired on Sundays from 8 to 9 p.m. and became a television staple and a cultural institution. Fondly remembered, The Ed Sullivan Show is arguably the most important entertainment program in television history as it showcased the world's best singers, dancers, actors, musicians, magicians, circus acts, and comedians. (Many classic Broadway performances exist today solely because they were preserved on The Ed Sullivan Show.) Despite Ed's obvious shortcomings as a television host--he was extremely "wooden" as an emcee--the appeal of the show was that it provided something for everybody. One critic aptly declared, "Ed Sullivan can't sing, dance or tell jokes--but he knows who can!" By 1971 The Ed Sullivan Show was in decline, however. Ratings were still generally good, but the all-important demographics showed that younger viewers were no longer watching in sizable numbers. Accordingly CBS unceremoniously applied the ax. The last live show aired on Sunday, March 28, 1971. The performers on that final Sunday were folk singer Melanie; singing duo Tony Sandler & Ralph Young; Danny Davis & the Nashville Brass; mezzo-soprano Joanna Simon; impressionist David Frye; comedian Joey Adams; comedy duo Norman Wisdom and Tony Fane; comedian Lennie Schultz; and sleight-of-hand artist Vic Perry. Sullivan, who hoped to extend his show to at least 25 seasons, had no inkling the March 28, 1971 broadcast would be the last show, so there was no grand finale or tearful farewell. Reruns continued through June 6, 1971. The Ed Sullivan Show was replaced by the CBS Sunday Evening Movie--which lasted just one season. From all accounts, the cancellation of the show deeply affected Sullivan's health and well being. He began exhibiting signs of senility. Paul McCartney recalled encountering Sullivan about a year after the show's cancellation and Sullivan had no idea who McCartney was. Joan Rivers had a similar experience. Sullivan died on October 13, 1974--which was a Sunday--just a few months after being diagnosed with advanced esophageal cancer. He was 73 years old.

Jack Dempsey Restaurant A Broadway eatery owned by former heavyweight champion was a New York City hot spot for many decades. Visitors could often find the ex-champ on the premises greeting his fans and customers. (My grandparents met Mr. Dempsey that way!) Menus from the restaurant made excellent souvenirs.

Our Gang - Jean Darling Jean Darling was one of the last Our Gang alumni to have any connection with the silent film era. Born Dorothy Jean LeVake in 1922, Darling got her big break at age four when she was accepted for a part in Hal Roach's Our Gang series. (By that time her name had been changed to Jean Darling.) Darling appeared in 35 Our Gang films. She essentially replaced Mary Kornman as the troupe's pretty blonde, a role she held through 1929. Darling's stint in the Our Gang cast ended at age seven, but she continued to appear in films, including an uncredited appearance in Laurel and Hardy's adaptation of Babes in Toyland (1934), and as the young Jane in Jane Eyre (1934). A round of stage and radio shows followed. Darling began to study singing. In 1940 she was given a scholarship by the New York Municipal Opera Association. She turned down an offer to play alongside Mickey Rooney in one of the MGM Andy Hardy movies. Instead, she went on Broadway, making her debut in the musical Count Me In in 1942. Darling's stage career hit its apex when she landed the role of Carrie Pipperidge in the original Broadway production of Carousel in 1945. She appeared in 850 consecutive performances of the play. Her role as Carrie helped her win parts for radio and TV in the 1950s. She hosted her own television show for NBC in New York City titled A Date with Jean Darling. Her daily TV show for women, The Singing Knit-Witch, aired on KHJ-TV in Hollywood. Later in life Darling began penning short mystery stories. She had more than 50 published. Darling resided in Ireland for many years, but died in Germany in 2015 at the age of 93.
