RollerGames - 1989 When pro wrestling experienced a resurgence in the 1980s could roller derby be very far behind? In 1989, RollerGames debuted in syndication in 96 percent of American TV markets. This clip is a preview of a match. It usually aired in the wee hours of the morning or on Saturday afternoons. It was roller derby with a twist. The track was a figure eight that featured a "wall of death". A live alligator pit in the track's "infield" was featured in the opening show. (Honest!) Teams in the six-team league included Hot Flash, Maniacs, and Bad Attitude. Despite halfway decent TV ratings--especially among the high school and university demographic--the show lasted just one season because its producer went bankrupt.

Friendly Giant LOOK UP WAY UP The Friendly Giant was a popular Canadian children's television program that aired from September 1958 through to March 1985. It featured three main characters: a giant named Friendly (played by Bob Homme)who lived in a huge castle, along with his puppet animal friends Rusty (a rooster who played a harp and lived in a book bag hung by the castle window) and Jerome (a giraffe). The two principal puppets were manipulated and voiced by Rod Coneybeare. The Friendly Giant was a wealthy man who paid for and produced the show himself. That is why it is so good. He always had creative control of the show. He made it fun for kids and didn't sell them out.

Ali-Liston Phantom Punch Fight - 1965 Perhaps the most controversial fight in boxing history: Ali-Liston II in Lewiston, ME on May 25, 1965. Ali (then Cassius Clay) had upset Liston on February 25, 1964 in Miami to win the world heavyweight title. The rematch, scheduled for Boston, was delayed by a few months because Ali needed emergency hernia surgery. By the time Ali had healed, he was tremendously unpopular because of his ties with the Black Muslims. Liston had connections in organized crime. Boston wanted no part of the fight, so it was moved to a high school hockey arena in Lewiston. Rumors that something odd would happen circulated before the fight. Watch Ali's famous "phantom punch" knock out Liston, a man who had never been floored before. Some people think it is a perfect punch. Others think Liston took a dive. Also watch ex-champ Jersey Joe Walcott botch the refereeing. Ali never goes to a neutral corner, yet Liston is somehow counted out. Ali wasn't exactly a one-punch knockout artist. He only had two first-round knockouts in his pro career. Renowned sports writer Red Smith, one of many respected journalists who maintained the fight was fixed, said, "I saw the punch; it wouldn't have crushed a grape."

Freaks Movie Trailer - 1932 This is a contemporary trailer created for the cult classic film Freaks long after its original 1932 release. This Tod Browning film is set in a circus sideshow and centers around the camaraderie of the "freaks"--and uses real carnival sideshow performers. The plot has two able-bodied members of the circus plotting to poison a midget to gain his inheritance. Originally planned for 94 minutes, it was cut to about an hour after very bad test screening results. (One woman claimed to have suffered a miscarriage from viewing the film.) It was a box office disaster in 1932--losing about $150,000. In the United Kingdom, Freaks was considered so shocking that it was banned for 30 years. The film was rediscovered by horror buffs in the 1960s. Shown at special midnight screenings, it developed an appreciative audience and has become a celebrated film.

Laurel and Hardy - The Music Box (1932) This is the full (27-minute) version of Laurel and Hardy's classic 1932 comedy The Music Box in beautiful black and white (as it should be!). The premise is simple: L&H are hired to deliver a piano to an address which requires them to haul it up a monumental flight of stairs. This film won an Academy Award for best short subject. It was filmed on location in a residential area of Los Angeles. The staircase still exists today, although it's dificult to find because the grassy hill now has buldings on it. There's a plaque at the site to tell fans that it actually is the real flight of stairs from the film. Unfortunately, any L&H fans who want to visit the site must risk their lives to do so. According to one report, the neighborhood is now apparently overrun by crime and street gangs.

Peter OToole passes at age 81 Hollywood legend Peter O'Toole died peacefully in his sleep last night. Peter had been in countless films -- including "Lawrence of Arabia", "Goodbye, Mr Chips" and "Venus" -- and holds the record for most Oscar nominations without ever winning. He was given an honorary Academy Award in 2010 to make up for it.

Taxi - Reverend Jim Drivers Exam One of the best written sitcoms ever was Taxi. In the show's first season, Christopher Lloyd appeared in one episode as "Reverend Jim," a burnt-out relic from the 1960s who was hastily procured to officiate at Latka's sham wedding. In the third episode of the second season Jim was brought back and made a regular character. In this famous scene, Jim applies for his driver's license so he can become a cabbie. The episode is titled "Reverend Jim: A Space Odyssey."

WWII: Massacre at Oradour-Sur-Glane On June 10, 1944, four days after the Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, German SS troops descended on a small, peaceful French village, Oradour-Sur-Glane, in which about 700 people lived. In a matter of a few hours, Oradour-Sur-Glane ceased to exist. Virtually every person who lived there was indiscriminately shot or burned alive. Every building was also destroyed. After the war, the French government decided to leave Oradour-Sur-Glane's ruins as they stood as a solemn reminder of the horrors of war.
