Supertrain Anyone remember Supertrain? NBC had high hopes for this TV series about an atomic-powered train that could travel across the country in 36 hours. It had one of the most expensive sets ever designed for a TV series. Vacillating between comedy and drama, the series never attracted much of a following. It lasted only five months before being derailed in 1979. Here are the show's opening credits.

High Hopes From the movie 'Hole In The Head' 1959 and recorded as a single in 1961 this is a song I still get that chill of enjoyment from. I thought about this as a fitting memory to post on the anniversary of Franks passing. Doesn't seem like ten years.

Maurice Chevalier on Whats My Line Here's an eery episode of What's My Line from April 1965: Maurice Chevalier, closing in on his 77th birthday, appears as the mystery challenger. There's nothing eery about that. The freaky part is host John Daly's comment about how energetic he hopes he'll be when he's 77. John Daly died of a heart attack just four days after his 77th birthday in 1991.

Hot L Baltimore - Sitcom Flop 1975 ABC had high hopes when its risque and controversial sitcom Hot L Baltimore debuted in 1975. Ultimately, though, the show never captured the hearts of TV viewers and was summarily axed less than five months into its run. The show, based on a successful off-Broadway play, took place in the rundown Hotel Baltimore in Baltimore, MD. It drew its title from the cheap establishment's neon marquee, which had a burned-out letter "e" that had never been replaced. The half-hour series premiered on January 24, 1975 and was produced by Norman Lear for ABC. (It was, in fact, the first Lear property to air on ABC.) The cast included Conchata Ferrell, James Cromwell, Richard Masur, Al Freeman, Jr., Gloria LeRoy, Jeannie Linero, and Charlotte Rae. The show's plots focused on the lives of the odd assemblage of disparate characters who called the seedy hotel home. The series had several controversial elements, including two primary characters who were prostitutes--one of whom was an illegal immigrant--and one of the first gay couples to be depicted on an American television series. Because of its storylines, Hot L Baltimore was the first network television show to have a warning during its opening, cautioning viewers about mature themes. ABC gave Hot L Baltimore a full publicity campaign, but it failed to win an audience and was canceled after just 13 episodes; its last telecast was June 6, 1975. This series is notable as the first failure for producer Norman Lear after a very successful streak of mega-hit TV series beginning with All in the Family in 1971 and continuing with Sanford and Son, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, among others.

Forgotten Sitcom - The Partners In 1971 NBC had high hopes for a new sitcom titled The Partners. It starred Don Adams as Detective Sergeant Lenny Crooke and Rupert Crosse as his partner Detective Sergeant George Robinson. Both cops were prone to acts of comic carelessness but Crooke was the more bumbling of the two. Rare for its time, The Partners had no opening montage or theme song. Its title and credits were simply interspersed among the opening scene. (Music did accompany the closing credits, however, and the same tune was occasionally heard leading into some scenes.) Adams had hoped the series would address serious social issues, but NBC preferred to recast Adams in a purely comedic role similar to his Maxwell Smart character from Get Smart which had ended in 1970. The Partners scored very well with test audiences, so NBC slotted it at 8 p.m. on Saturday night beginning on September 18, 1971. In a stroke of bad luck, in the fall of 1971 CBS decided to move its surprise hit All in the Family to the same time slot to replace the fading My Three Sons. The Partners was crushed in the ratings. It was pulled from NBC's lineup in January 1972 although a few unaired episodes were shown in the summer.

Awful Lucille Ball Statue has Fans in Uproar In 2012 a bronze statue of beloved comedienne Lucille Ball was unveiled in her hometown of Celeron, NY. The reaction to 'Scary Lucy' (as the locals call it) has been overwhelmingly negative. Most Lucy fans think the statue bears little resemblance to the late, great TV icon. One person described it as "looking like a drunken zombie." There has been renewed interest in Scary Lucy because recently a Facebook page was created by upset fans who want the statue taken down. In a 2015 interview, artist Dave Poulin said he too was disappointed with the final product and hopes to get a chance to create a better replacement. The statue was funded by private donations.

LA Dodgers on Joey Bishop Show Fun stuff: Six members of the defending World Series champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers, perform a clever musical number on the Joey Bishop Show in the spring of 1964. The tune from High Hopes stays the same but the lyrics discuss the Dodgers' 1963 NL pennant victory and World Series triumph. The musical Dodgers are Moose Skowron, Willie Davis, Tommy Davis, Ron Perranoski, Frank Howard and the tuxedo-clad Don Drysale.

Bedroom of WWI Soldier Unchanged Since 1918 In October 2014, a French publication reported on a remarkable tribute to one of France's fallen soldiers from the First World War. A home in Belabre, a small central French village, contains a young man's bedroom that has remained unchanged since its occupant died in the final year of the Great War. Dragoon officer Hubert Rochereau was killed in Belgium on April 26, 1918. His grieving parents, as a tribute to their late son, left his room exactly as it was the last time he set foot in it. Over the years the house has changed ownership numerous times, but each new owner has kept the promise not to alter the bedroom's appearance that accompanied the original sales agreement made by the Rocherau family--although it is completely unenforceable by law. The room contains several articles of clothing, photographs, books, and other personal effects. The mayor of Belabre hopes the recent publicity surrounding the bedroom will eventually lead to the house being converted into a museum.
