1920 Houdini Poster In the 1920s, after many years entertaining crowds as an escape artist, Houdini changed his show to expose the methods and motivations of the Spiritualists, a group who claimed they could contact the dead through sťances. Testifying against them in Congress, he also exposed their tricks while on stage, an act he turned into a Broadway show. Soon, Houdini received death threats from the group.

Price Is Right cheater This is just so wrong. A dim-witted Price Is Right contestant exposes the correct price in Flip-Flop. Amazingly, not only isn't he immediately disqualified, Bob Barker awards him the prize! Great lesson there, huh?

Freddy Boom Boom Cannon Frederick Anthony Picariello, or as he was known to us, Freddy Cannon, was born in Boston in 1940. When he was very young he learned to play a guitar and in high school he formed his own band. As a vocalist, he copied the style of Little Richard. He eventually signed with Swan Records in Philadelphia, a recording studio in which master music promoter Dick Clark had an interest, and who brought him national exposure through numerous appearances on American Bandstand. In 1959 he changed his name to Freddy Cannon, and was dubbed "Boom Boom" because of his thundering musical renditions, he had three Top 10 hits. Freddy also played himself in the final episode of a teen soap opera called Never Too Young in 1966. He now lives in Tarzana, California, and at 67, still continues to perform in concert. I still remember listening to his songs on a little GE transistor radio...those were the days huh?

Jimmy Swaggart scandal Television evangelists seemed to be in the news for a lot of unholy behavior in the 1980s. In 1988 Jimmy Swaggart got caught with his pants down (literally). Marvin Gorman, another minster, had been exposed by Swaggart in 1986 for having an affair with one of his parishioners. Two years later Gorman got his revenge. Gorman hired a private detective to follow Swaggart. The private eye managed to take incriminating photographs of Swaggart cavorting in a motel with a New Orleans prostitute. Remember Swaggart's tearful confession? Here it is.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Here's another wonderful performance by Judy Garland that brings back alot of memories, and some tears as well. It's from the 1944 film, Meet Me in St Louis. It tells the story of four sisters living in St. Louis at the time of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition World's Fair in 1904. Judy met her future husband while making this film, he was the director, Vincent Minnelli. In 2005, Time.com named Meet Me in St Louis as one of the 100 best movies of the last 80 years.

Aimee Semple McPherson Scandal 1926 Sex scandals involving evangelists are not new. The first one occurred back in 1926, when the leading radio evangelist of the day, Aimee Semple McPherson, was allegedly involved in a doozy with a married man. On May 18, 1926, the 35-year-old McPherson arrived at Ocean Park Beach in California with her secretary for a day of swimming. Shortly after their arrival, McPherson disappeared. McPherson's mother delivered a sermon that night in place of Aimee and informed the congregation that Aimee was 'with Jesus.' The following day, hundreds of concerned parishioners ventured to Ocean Park Beach to look for their beloved Sister Aimee. One parishioner drowned and another died of exposure in the unsuccessful search. Not long after Aimee vanished, Kenneth G. Ormiston, the married engineer of the radio station McPherson owned, also disappeared. Five weeks later, Aimee emerged from the Mexican desert in a town just across the border from Douglas, Arizona. She claimed she had been kidnapped, drugged, tortured, and held for ransom in a shack. Aimee further stated she had escaped from her captors and walked 13 hours through the desert to freedom. Her story was implausible, to say the least. No shack was ever found. Aimee's shoes showed no signs of a 13-hour desert trek. (Moreover, they had grass stains on them!) She was last seen wearing a bathing suit, but reappeared in a dress and wearing a wristwatch she hadn't taken to the beach. Several witnesses claimed they had seen McPherson with Ormiston at various motels during the 35 days she was missing. McPherson and her mother were eventually charged with obstruction of justice, but the charges were dropped early the following year.

Expo 67 Montreal One of the most successful world's fairs ever held was Expo '67 in Montreal. It happened to coincide with Canada's centennial year. The fair was held on two artificial islands built in the St. Lawrence River. The islands were created using the dirt excavated from Montreal's subway construction. Expo was the place to be that summer!

Lucia Zarate Worlds Tiniest Person Lucia Zarate looked like a doll and weighed less than most house cats. Born in San Carlos, Mexico in 1864, Zarate is considered the lightest person who ever lived. At maturity, the perfectly formed, doll-like woman stood less than 20 inches tall and weighed about five pounds. Billed as the Mexican Lilliputian, Lucia first appeared on tour in the United States at age 12. Her pay reputedly rose to $20 per hour--a fantastic figure in the 1870s. Unfortunately her career ended in tragedy. Zarate was travelling by train through the Rocky Mountains in 1890. The train stalled during a snowstorm and the fragile Zarate died of exposure.

Ironic Steve Garvey SI Cover 'Is Steve Garvey Really Too Good To Be True?' asked the cover of Sports Illustrated in its 1982 baseball preview issue. Garvey, the Los Angeles Dodgers' popular first baseman, had spent years carefully cultivating a squeaky clean image that abruptly disintegrated the following year. He and wife Cyndy endured a scandalous public divorce in which Garvey's trysts with other women were exposed. Must have been that SI cover jinx!
