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.

Eery Boxing Photo 1913 This is one of my favorite sports photographs. It isn't a particularly great photo--in fact, it's quite poor from a photography standpoint--but is does show an eery ray of sunlight breaking through the clouds to illuminate the prone Luther McCarty. The date was May 24, 1913. McCarty, a 21-year-old 'white hope' from Nebraska, was being groomed for a chance to meet Jack Johnson for the world heavyweight title. McCarty had already beaten a couple of top contenders. He was pitted against lightly regarded Arthur Pelkey in Calgary, Alberta as a keep-busy fight. To everyone's shock, McCarty collapsed in the first round after absorbing a very light punch from Pelkey. (Some reports say it landed on McCarty's body; others claim in struck his head.) Regardless, it wasn't a very hard punch. McCarty dropped to the canvas unconscious and never rose. The crowd booed, believing the fight was fixed. It wasn't. McCarty had died of a brain hemorrhage. It was likely caused by a fall from a horse a few days earlier that his managers had kept secret from sports writers. Writers and fans alike agreed the strange ray of light only illuminated the spot where McCarty lay dying--and nowhere else in the ring.

Name the Singer It seems every actor (and non-actor) in the 1950's and 60's needed to record an album. Unlike Telly Savalas, who has at least four under his belt, I believe this performer only cut this one album. (The Seekers have nothing on this guy-!)

NHL Hockey Fight When did hockey first start letting fighting go on? I mean all other sports it is not allowed without serious consequences. Don't get me wrong I like it. Curious as to how that happened. Enjoy the Olympics!
