Our Gang - Porky Eugene Lee played Porky in 42 Our Gang movies from 1935 through 1939. Born in 1933, Lee was spotted by a Hal Roach talent scout in Dallas who thought Lee resembled established Our Gang star Spanky McFarland, who also came from Dallas. Someone associated with Roach dubbed Lee 'Porky,' and he became part of the Our Gang troupe at age two. Porky's character seldom said more than one or two lines per movie. Still, it was Porky who first said 'Otay!' instead of 'Okay!' although Buckwheat seems to be more famous for its use. Porky had the good fortune of being part of the heyday of the Our Gang shorts. However, his career with the troupe came to an abrupt end when he grew five inches in 1939--and the not-quite-six-year-old was nearly as tall as 11-year-old Spanky. He was replaced by Mickey Gubitosi in the troupe. For a while Porky distanced himself from his childhood acting exploits, even to the point of legally altering his name to Eugene Gordon Lee. As an adult, Lee had a successful career as an educator. Lee had a change of heart in later years and embraced his fame as Porky. He frequently attended cast reunions and conventions. He even manufactured and sold Porky-themed memorabilia. Lee died of brain and lung cancer a few days before his 72nd birthday in 2005.

The Shining 1980 TV trailer Unfortunately thick with broadcast static as it was recorded via antenna in 1980, but the still-eerie television trailer for director Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the Stephen King novel "The Shining". Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd and Scatman Crothers star in the terrifying tale of a family subject to the horrors of a haunted resort hotel sealed off from the rest of the world by the winter snow.

Life With Lucy - 1986 Lucille Ball had 23 years of successful sitcoms from 1951 through 1974. During the next dozen years, Ball appeared only in specials and did the occasional game show. In 1986, after some serious negotiating, ABC persuaded the 75-year-old Ball to come out of retirement and do another sitcom, Life With Lucy, alongside 80-year-old Gale Gordon. Lucy would be paid for 22 episodes even if the series was cancelled before they aired or were even made. She also insisted that Bob Carroll and Madelyn Pugh--her two primary writers from I Love Lucy--would have final script approval. Lucy played a widow who moves in her with daughter's family. The first episode aired on Saturday, September 23, 1986. It ranked 23rd for the week. The reviews were not kind. Critics felt the scripts were old-fashioned and predictable. Some Lucy fans cringed watching the elderly Lucy and Gale perform stunts they did years earlier. Lucy’s timing was a bit off as well because she now needed cue cards to remember her lines. As the weeks went on, Life With Lucy steadily fell in the ratings. Within two months, it was among the lowest-rated shows on television. Lucy was shocked because she had never failed in a series before. There were occasional bright spots, though: Lucille Ball was likely at her personal best in an episode featuring John Ritter. (Each was a huge fan of the other.) An episode titled 'Mother of the Bride,' in which Audrey Meadows (of The Honeymooners) appeared as Lucy's sister, probably was the best of the bunch. Unfortunately, nothing could save what was becoming a major disappointment for ABC. Even though 13 episodes were filmed, only eight made it to the airwaves before the series was axed. 'Mother of the Bride' was the last one to air on November 15, 1986. Lucy was apparently devastated by the show's cancellation, tearfully declaring to longtime friend Ann Sothern that TV viewers only accepted a younger Lucy--not Lucy as a grandmother. ABC never aired any reruns. Life With Lucy has not yet been made available on DVD.

sammy sosa before and after 2009 Baseball legend and home run hitter Sammy Sosa had an unfortunate accident with his moisturizer cream he used to treat his sun damaged skin, it seems the cream turned his skin a pale white. Spotted at the Latin Grammy Awards a few days ago he showed up and caused quite a shock with his new look. Sammy insists he did not intentionally bleach his skin white like the dearly departed Michael Jackson openly admitted to because of his skin disease.

Chessboxing Invented - 2003 Yes, this is real! Chessboxing is a rapidly growing sport, most popular in Europe, that combines the brain power of chess and the physical violence of boxing. Invented in 2003, a chessboxing match begins with two minutes of chess, followed by two minutes of boxing, and then back to chess, then boxing, and so forth. A match can last up to 11 rounds. It ends with either a checkmate or a knockout.

Cynthia Lynn Lovely Cynthia Lynn (pictured here in a CBS publicity photo with Bob Crane) played Fraulein Helga, Colonel Klink's secretary, in the first season of Hogan's Heroes (1965-66). In the series' pilot episode, Helga unabashedly works with the prisoners to sabotage the German war effort. In the first season however, Helga only assists Hogan and his cronies with small favors usually paid for with bribes of luxury items. The next season, Lynn was suddenly replaced by Klink's new secretary, Fraulein Hilda, played by Sigrid Valdis (who later became Bob Crane's second wife!). Why was Lynn replaced? No one has ever satisfactorily answered that question for Hogan's Heroes buffs. One persistent rumor had Lynn engaging in an off-screen affair with the married Crane. When the romance became known, Lynn quit the show. Lynn did return a few times late in the show's run in bit parts.

Carnegie Libraries Andrew Carnegie made a vast fortune in the steel industry. His philosophy was that a man should spend half his life acquiring wealth and the other half using it for good works. Accordingly, Carnegie financed the building of the astonishing total of 2,509 public libraries in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. Carnegie's passion for libraries began at a young age. He saw the value of public libraries as places for learning and community centers. Cities or towns that wanted a Carnegie Library had to provide the building site and maintain the library after it was built. Carnegie's money paid for everything else. A carnegie library always had to have 'open stacks' so the public could browse, and it had to provide free service. Carnegie's foundation built libraries from 1885 to 1929. (Carnegie himself died in 1919 at age 84.) Many of these libraries are still in use today, such as the one pictured here in Grass Valley, California.
