September Morn Controversy A painting of a nude maiden standing shin deep in a lake created a major scandal in America in 1913. Matinee de Septembre (September Morn) was painted by French artist Paul Emile Chabas over three summers, ending in 1912. The next year, when it was in the window of a Chicago art gallery, a complaint was issued to the mayor's office and the owner of the gallery was subsequently charged with indecency. He beat the rap. Two months later a similar controversy erupted in New York City when the painting was displayed by another art dealer. Anthony Comstock, a self-appointed crusader against vice, vowed to file obscenity charges against the man but never followed through. The surrounding publicity naturally made September Morn the most sought after piece of art in America. Thousands of lithograph reproductions were made in the next decade. The painting is often denounced as kitsch by art critics who claim it lacks contrast, co-ordinated lines, and a worthy subject. Today the original painting is on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Family Affair 1966 Uncle Bill meets Jody for the first time and Sissy for the first time in many years. This wonderful family oriented series which ran from 1966-1971 explored the trials of well-to-do civil engineer and bachelor Bill Davis (Brian Keith), as he attempted to raise his brother's orphaned children in his luxury New York City apartment. Davis's stuffy English butler Mr. Giles French (Sebastian Cabot), also had adjustments to make as he was usually saddled with the responsibility of caring for 15-year-old Cissy (Kathy Garver) and the 6-year-old twins, Jody (Johnny Whitaker) and Buffy (Anissa Jones). Brian Keith was nominated for an Emmy three times for his role as Uncle Bill. On August 28, 1976, after partying all night at the beach town of Oceanside, California, Anissa Jones was found dead in the bedroom of a friend's house, she was only 18. The coroner's report listed her death as accidental drug overdose. Found in her system were cocaine, PCP, methaqualone and Seconal. The coroner who examined Jones reported that she had died from one of the most severe drug overdoses he had ever seen. In 1984, her brother, Paul Jones, also died of a drug overdose.

All Quiet on the Western Front  Final Scene One of the few movies that was better than the novel upon which it was based: All Quiet On The Western Front (1930). It's the story of a German youth, Paul Baumer, who patriotically volunteers for service in the First World War with his classmates. His enthusiasm quickly fades to cycicism as the horrors and brutality of modern warfare become apparent. This famous final scene (which does not appear in the novel) shows Baumer being shot by a French sniper while he reaches for a butterfly.

Pierre Trudeau Just Watch Me This 1970 clip of Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau is probably unknown to Americans, but it's very famous in Canada. In October 1970, a radical French-Canadian separatist group, the FLQ, began a reign of terror in the province of Quebec. James Cross, a visiting British diplomat, was kidnapped. Shortly afterward, Pierre Laporte, a Quebec cabinet minister, was also kidnapped. (Laporte's dead body was found a few days later.) Prime minister Trudeau responded by invoking Canada's War Measures Act which gave the government extraordinary powers to preserve order. The civil libertarians didn't like it, but it was the most popular thing Trudeau ever did. Watch him as he fields questions from a left-leaning TV reporter.

Princes Of The Universe This is just one of the many Queen songs used in the film Highlander. Released in 1986 this spawned so many offshoots that I've lost count. A Frenchman played a Scot and a Scotsman played a Spaniard, who'd have thought it???

French Sausage Ad This sausage ad from France is a little too graphic for my tastes. (However, it does present the opportunity for a pun: If a pig kills itself, is it suey-cide?)

The Immaculate Reception The most talked about play in NFL history was the 'Immaculate Reception' in a 1972 Steelers-Raiders playoff game. Franco Harris caught a last-minute touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw. Under 1972 NFL rules, an offensive player could not legally catch a forward pass that had been last touched by a teammate. To this day a debate rages about who last touched the ball before Harris. Was it Jack Tatum of the Oakland Raiders or Frenchy Fuqua of the Pittsburgh Steelers? Judge for yourself.
