Co-Ed Fever - Forgotten Sitcom There have been a handful of sitcoms that lasted just one episode. This is one of them: the college-based Co-Ed Fever. This CBS show aired just once, on Sunday, February 4, 1979. It followed CBS' screening of the movie Rocky which drew very good ratings. When the overnight ratings for Co-Ed Fever were disappointing, CBS panicked and cancelled its commitment for at least five other episodes which were to have a Monday evening time slot. The show was set in Brewster House at Baxter College, an eastern women's school that had just recently allowed male students to enroll. Total Television calls Co-Ed Fever a "hapless sitcom." Cast member Heather Thomas, who would later have a substantial roll on The Fall Guy, once joked that Co-Ed Fever "was cancelled after the third commercial." Jane Rose, who played Mrs. Selby (the matron at Brewster House), died a few months after Co-Ed Fever was axed. Alexa Kenin (who played Mousie and later had film roles in Little Darlings and Pretty in Pink), died at age 23 in 1985. Her cause of death has never been made public. Here is the show's opening montage.

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.

Our Gang - Dorothy DeBorba Dorothy DeBorba was a regular in the early talking period of the Our Gang comedies. Recognizable by her Mary Pickford-type curls and hair ribbons, DeBorba was sometimes referred to as 'Echo' because she liked to repeat other characters' comments--or at least try. Years later DeBorba opined that the boys in the troupe always got the best lines. Yet she uttered some of the funniest lines in the long history of the Our Gang comedies. DeBorba's famous dialogue occurs in 'Love Business' when she tries to repeat the romantic lines lovesick Chubby was practising. Chubby: 'Oh, my darling, can you hear the pleas in my whispers?' Dorothy: 'Darling, I can hear the fleas in your whiskers.' Chubby: 'If love is like a rose, I will pick my rose in a bud.' Dorothy: 'If love is like a rose, I will stick my nose in the mud.' Chubby: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to trip and dance.' Dorothy: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to rip my pants.' DeBorba appeared in 24 Our Gang comedies from 1930 to 1933. She died from emphysema at age 85 on June 2, 2010.

Our Gang - Mary Kornman Pretty Mary Kornman was the first notable female star of the Our Gang comedies. When Hal Roach announced in 1922 his intention to produce a series of films starring ordinary kids, six-year-old Mary was suggested by her parents. (Mary's father was one of Roach's photographers.) The cute blonde replaced Peggy Cartwright as the most noteworthy female cast member. She appeared in more than 40 Our Gang shorts in the silent era, often as the heartthrob for smitten boys. This photo was taken in 1924 when Mary was nine. She was dropped from the troupe before her eleventh birthday in 1926 when she was judged to be too old--and was replaced as the lead female by Jean Darling. Mary's younger sister, Mildred, had several non-speaking roles in Our Gang movies from 1926 through 1935. Mary kept acting until 1940. One role had Mary playing the female lead opposite John Wayne in one of his early low-budget westerns. She returned to do two Our Gang shorts in the sound era. Mary appeared as herself, along with a few other Our Gang 'old-timers,' in Reunion in Rhythm (1937). She also played the role of the school teacher in 'Fish Hooky' (1933), which is considered one of the best Our Gang films. Mary died of cancer in 1973 at the age of 57.

Carling Bassett For a short time in the 1980s, pretty Carling Bassett was the heartthrob of the female tennis tour. Born in Canada in 1967, she came from a wealthy background. Her father was a publishing mogul; her great-grandfather was a brewing magnate. 'Darling Carling' was the best female tennis player in Canada by age 14. Her peak ranking on the WTA tour was #8. Her best result in a grand slam event was a semifinal appearance at the 1984 U.S. Open. She never did live up to the lofty expectations, but Bassett did manage to capture two career singles titles and two doubles titles. She married tennis pro Robert Seguso in 1987, became a mother, and vanished from the pro circuit. She and her husband (along with Chris Evert) now run a tennis academy.

Giants Final Game at Polo Grounds On September 29, 1957, the famous New York Giants baseball team--once the most feared outfit in the National League--played their final game at the Polo Grounds before about 11,000 nostalgic fans. The Giants had represented New York City in the NL since 1883 and had played their home games at four different ballparks known as the Polo Grounds since 1891. Once the city's sports darlings, the Giants had slowly become second bananas to the more glamorous Yankees since the 1920s. One embittered journalist declared, "The real baseball fans in New York supported the Giants. We left the Yankees for the tourists." The Giants lost that last game 9-1 to Pittsburgh. Once the final out was made, fans stormed the field to voice their displeasure with owner Horace Stoneham who had arranged to move the club to San Francisco for the 1958 season. Stoneham wisely did not make an appearance.
