Notre Dame defeated Army 13-7 in a college football game on October 18, 1924. Grantland Rice of the New York Herald-Tribune began his eloquent report this way: 'Outlined against a blue-grey October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds this afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down upon the bewildering panorama spread out upon the green plain below.' Rice's article was terrific, but what really made Notre Dame's Four Horsemen famous was this photograph. Once the victorious Irish arrived back on campus, team publicity man George Strickler posed Harry Stuhldreher, Don Miller, Jim Crowley, and Elmer Layden atop horses borrowed from a local livery stable. The photograph was widely circulated and Notre Dame's 1924 backfield became legendary.

Myers Lake, as it was affectionately called in the The Andy Griffith Show it is the opening scene for the show. Located in Beverly Hills CA not North Carolina. This location has been heavily used by the television and movie industry over the past fifty years. It was the lagoon in Creature from the Black Lagoon and it was the pond in On Golden Pond. Some other shows you have seen it in are Bonanza, Star Trek, How the West Was Won, Lassie, Falcon Crest, Camp Runamuck, and Rambo to name a few!

Lead singer Johnny Maestro had been around for awhile before recording this great Jimmy Webb song. He'd been lead singer with the Crests since 1957 and sang on all their hits. He even had a couple of solo hits before joining the Del-Satins. No hits there, but Maestro and the Del-Satins then joined with an outfit called the Rhythm Method (cool name)to form the Brooklyn Bridge. Jimmy Webb's "Worst That Could Happen" had previously been recorded by the 5th Dimension in 1967, but not released as a single. Perhaps it should have been. But then, we might not have got to hear Johnny's great vocal which went all the way up to #3 on the Billbord chart.
