SOPHIA LOREN  Still a Sex Symbol at 72 Born Sofia Villani Scicolone, in Rome Italy on September 20, 1934. An illegitimate child from a poor home in Naples, she became a teenage beauty queen and model. Her film debut was as an extra. She came under contract to film producer Carlo Ponti, later her husband, and blossomed as an actress. An international career followed and she won an Oscar for La Ciociara, (1961, translation Two Women). Frequently appearing with Marcello Mastroianni, her many films include The Millionairess (1961) and Marriage Italian Style (1964). In 1979 she published Sophia Loren: Living and Loving (with A E Hotchner) which was filmed for television as Sophia Loren: Her Own Story (1980), in which she played herself and her mother. She received an honorary Academy Award in 1991. How she stays so gorgeous is anyone's guess, but being Sicilian myself, I would be willing to bet there's something in the olive oil, no kidding. In any case, I better get me a few barrels of it lol

Anna Kournikova Ah, yes...adorable Anna Kournikova! She was the Russian tennis goddess with the incredible good looks and the incredibly mediocre record. Anna reached the semifinals of Wimbledon in 1997 at the age of 16--and never did much after that. Despite never having won a professional title in singles, Anna was always among the tour's leading earners in endorsements. (Gee, I wonder why.) She famously dated Russian the two hockey stars pictured here, Pavel Bure and Slava Fedisov. Both experienced declines in their careers after dating Anna.

Whats My Line - First Episode Historic television: The very first episode of What's My Line from February 2, 1950 in its entirety. Despite having two really dull panelists, contestants with mundane occupations, and a mediocre mystery guest (New York Yankees' shortstop Phil Rizzuto), WML got off the ground. With a bit of tweaking it would soon be the best panel show on television.

Charlie Chaplin Receives Honorary Oscar 1972 At the 1972 Academy Awards, 83-year-old Charlie Chaplin received a long overdue honorary Oscar for his immense contributions to cinema. The presenter was Daniel Taradash, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It was the first time Chaplin had set foot in the United States since 1952. (Chaplin had never obtained American citizenship and, after a vacation abroad, he was refused admission into the U.S. during the Red Scare era because his political views were thought to be pro-communist. Idiocy!)

Louis-Roper Fight  - 1939 During Joe Louis' long reign as world heavyweight champion, there weren't many quality contenders who could give him a good tussle. Case in point: On April 17, 1939, Louis defended his crown against Jack Roper in the challenger's hometown of Los Angeles. Here is the complete fight in which Roper was separated from his senses inside of one round. Roper's career record was a mediocre 63-43-10. No wonder the press began derisively referring to Louis' opponents as the Bum of the Month Club.

Mark Spitz 1972 Olympics The hero of the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich was American Mark Spitz, who won seven gold medals in swimming and set seven world records in the process. Here is an IOC profile of the great Spitz. (His feats are being relegated to the history books because of the sensational exploits of Michael Phelps at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.)

Jesse Owens 1936 Olympics This is an IOC profile of Jesse Owens, the famed American athlete, who won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. I've always loved the story about how Luz Long helped Owens qualify for the long jump finals.

Olympic Black Power Salute 1968 Most of the time controversies at the Olympics have to do with the Games themselves. At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, it was the podium antics of two American medallists that created the biggest stir of the Games. The gold medallist from the 200 metres, Tommie Smith, and bronze medallist John Carlos used the occasion to give a 'black power' salute. The IOC, citing a 'misuse of the podium to make a political statement,' sent the two Americans home immediately afterward.

Joe Garagiola on Whats My Line From the syndicated version of What's My Line circa 1969, likable television personality Joe Garagiola is a mystery guest. A former major league catcher (of mediocre ability) Garagiola was a longtime baseball broadcaster on NBC's Game of the Week. He also was a mainstay of The Today Show. Garagiola was also a fairly decent game show host.
