Our Gang - Dorothy DeBorba Dorothy DeBorba was a regular in the early talking period of the Our Gang comedies. Recognizable by her Mary Pickford-type curls and hair ribbons, DeBorba was sometimes referred to as 'Echo' because she liked to repeat other characters' comments--or at least try. Years later DeBorba opined that the boys in the troupe always got the best lines. Yet she uttered some of the funniest lines in the long history of the Our Gang comedies. DeBorba's famous dialogue occurs in 'Love Business' when she tries to repeat the romantic lines lovesick Chubby was practising. Chubby: 'Oh, my darling, can you hear the pleas in my whispers?' Dorothy: 'Darling, I can hear the fleas in your whiskers.' Chubby: 'If love is like a rose, I will pick my rose in a bud.' Dorothy: 'If love is like a rose, I will stick my nose in the mud.' Chubby: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to trip and dance.' Dorothy: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to rip my pants.' DeBorba appeared in 24 Our Gang comedies from 1930 to 1933. She died from emphysema at age 85 on June 2, 2010.

Our Gang - Farina Allen Hoskins became part of Hal Roach's Our Gang troupe in 1922 before he was two years old. At first Hoskins' Farina character was androgynous; in some films he's a male, in others he's a female. Farina soon evolved into a fully male character--and one of the most popular of the late silent and early talkies period. Often dressed in a bizarre array of mismatched gaudy clothes, Farina's character was the stereotypical 'pickaninny.' By the time his tenure as Farina on Our Gang ended in 1931, Hoskins was the top-salaried performer, earning $250 per week. Hoskins briefly had a vaudeville act with his sister, but gradually drifted away from show business. 'I prefer jobs where I eat regularly,' he quipped. Hoskins served in WWII, rising to the rank of sergeant. Late in Hoskins' life he worked tirelessly with the disabled and mentally ill. Like his fellow black Our Gang performers, Hoskins was annoyed at the political correctness that caused the series to be heavily edited for TV in the early 1970s. While acknowledging that blacks were steroetyped in the Our Gang comedies, he pointed out that whites were too: There were the stereotypical fat kids, bullies, nerds, freckle-faced kids, and pretty blondes. He was also quick to point out that in an era when much of America was segregated, the racially mixed Our Gang kids played, socialized, and went to school together. Hoskins died of cancer a month before his 60th birthday in 1980.

Our Gang - Buckwheat One of the most recognizable characters in the Our Gang comedies was William (Buckwheat) Thomas who was a troupe member from 1934 until the series concluded in 1944. Thomas recalled his mother taking him to a tryout at age three--where he was quickly added as a minor character. He was being groomed to replace Stymie as the Gang's black character. Like Farina before him, Buckwheat's gender was a bit of a mystery at first, but he eventually grew into a male role. His trademark 'Otay!' was part of his garbled-English shtick. His wardrobe usually consisted of a striped shirt, a floppy hat, and pants held up by just one suspender. Thomas made an easy transition out of showbiz. He worked as a film laboratory technician for years and also served in the Korean War. (His gravestone wrongly lists him as a WWII veteran.) In August 1980 he was moved to tears after he was given a standing ovation by fans at an Our Gang reunion. Two months later Thomas died suddenly of a heart attack at age 49. Remarkably, Buckwheat got plenty of posthumous fame. Comedian Eddie Murphy had an ongoing Buckwheat-impersonation routine on Saturday Night Live. In 1990, the ABC news program 20/20 aired a segment about a man working in a Tempe, Arizona grocery store who claimed to be Buckwheat. The network was flooded with calls from knowledgeable Our Gang fans who pointed out that the real Buckwheat had died a decade earlier. An angry Spanky McFarland appeared on television to denounce the fraudster, a man named Billie English who had been masquerading as Buckwheat for 30 years. The producer of the 20/20 segment was summarily fired for his shoddy research. Buckwheat's son sued ABC for negligence.

Our Gang - Mary Ann Jackson Mary Ann Jackson was the main female character in the Our Gang series during its transition period from silent movies to talkies. Jackson joined the troupe in 1928 at age six. She came from a family with plenty of acting experience. Jackson's mother was a stage actress while her older sister had roles in some D.W. Griffith films. Jackson herself had movie experience dating back to 1925. Our Gang Director Robert McGowan preferred casting children with no acting experience in order to project natural child-like behavior, but he made an exception in Jackson's case. Jackson was a tomboyish 'plain Jane' character who was vastly different from all the female Our Gang leads that came before and after her. She had the ability to both deliver a wisecrack and elicit pathos. Jackson's last Our Gang appearance came in 1931. She then abruptly quit the business at age eight, seldom acting again. Jackson died of a heart attack at age 80 in 2003.

1933 World Series Scorecard The 1933 World Series pitted the National League champion New York Giants versus the American League champion Washington Senators. (The team was officially the Nationals, but they were commonly called the Senators by baseball writers and fans.) Both managers were player/managers. Bill Terry, New York's first baseman, was in his first full season as Giants' manager. Likewise, Joe Cronin was in his first full season as the Senators' pilot. Cronin played shortstop for Washington. This is what a souvenir scorecard from Washington's Griffith Stadium looked like. The Giants won the first two games at the Polo Grounds, lost the third game at Griffith Stadium, but won the next two--both in extra innings--to capture the World Series in five games. To date, Game Five, on October 7, was the last World Series game played in Washington.

Cassius Clay and the Beatles 1964 When the Beatles arrived in the United States in February 1964, Miami was a tour stop. (One Ed Sullivan Show was broadcast from there.) During their time in Florida the Beatles dropped in on Cassius Clay who was in training for his upcoming title encounter with world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. The Fab Four and the Louisville Lip posed for a few publicity photos together, like the one shown below. According to some reports, Clay--soon to be Muhammad Ali--had no idea who the Beatles were.
