Tragic Child Actress Judith Barsi Judith Barsi was a prolific child actress who appeared in at least 72 commercials and a handful of movies and TV shows before her horrifying death at age 10 in 1988. Barsi was spotted by a talent scout at a skating rink when she was nearly six years old. He mistook her for a three-year-old. Extremely tiny for her age, she was able to play much younger roles. At age 10 she was only 3'8" tall. Excellent at understanding precisely what directors wanted from her, Barsi appeared in commercials advertising McDonald's restaurants, peanut butter, orange juice, potato chips, soup, and dolls. It is estimated that she was earning close to $100,000 a year from her acting gigs. Fans of the sitcom Cheers will recall Barsi playing the role of a new bartender's adorable little daughter in a 1986 episode titled Relief Bartender (see photo). One of Barsi's last projects was providing the voice of Ducky in the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time. Barsi's home life was a nightmare: Her father, Jozsef, had fled communist Hungary. He was a violent alcoholic who mentally and physically abused Judith and her mother Maria, who was also refugee from Hungary. Judith had told fellow actors that her father had threatened to kill her on several occasions. On July 25, 1988, Barsi was shot to death by her father while she slept in the family's Los Angeles home. He also killed his wife. He stayed with the bodies for two days before burning them and turning his gun on himself. Barsi was supposed to audition for another role on the day she was murdered.

1980s Canadian Telemarketing Commercial This was one of a series of Canadian commercials, sponsored by a telephone company (of course) that introduced the new idea of 'telemarketing' as a way for businesses to expand their markets. I honestly think the original idea for telemarketing was for a legitimate business to keep in contact with its regular customers. It didn't yet have the negative connotations it has today (i.e. to call complete strangers at dinnertime from a phone bank in India to ask them if they want their ducts cleaned.)

Hockey Night in Canada - 1970 Here are the first five minutes of a Hockey Night in Canada broadcast from Toronto from February 7, 1970. The Oakland Seals are the visitors who face Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens. The classic HNIC theme is heard. Two Molson beer commercials are shown. There's opening commentary by host Ward Cornell. P.A. announcer Paul Harris instructs the crowd to rise for the national anthem. An instrumental version of O Canada is played. Play-by-play man Bill Hewitt sets the scene...and the puck is dropped.
