Charlie Chaplin sings The only time we ever heard the Little Tramp's voice was in Modern Times (1936) when he sang a nonsense song in a cabaret. If you don't understand the lyrics, it's okay. Nobody does. They are a mishmash of words from several languages with a bit of jibberish thrown in. (Some film historians claim that Chaplin was trying to make the point that actions speak louder than words.) Nevertheless it is rather odd to hear sounds come from the mouth of the silent cinema's greatest star.

Paul McCartney Death Story Remember this balderdash? The strange claim first appeared in Drake University's student newspaper in September 1969. It gathered momentum a month later when Russ Gibb, a Detroit-area deejay, broadcast that Paul McCartney had died in a November 1966 car mishap and had been secretly replaced in the Beatles by the winner of a lookalike contest. The supposed clues to Paul's untimely death could be found by playing Beatles' records backwards, by looking at imagery on album covers, and by examining various song lyrics. Yeah, right.

1933 Adolf Hitler Baby Photo Hoax In 1933, this supposed baby picture of Adolf Hitler circulated in newspapers in England and the United States. When it appeared in the Chicago Tribune in October 1933, the German consulate in that city denounced the photo as a hoax and provided a real baby photo of Hitler (which I posted on this website a little while ago). The hoax photo came from the London Bureau of Acme Newsphotos and originated from an unknown source in Austria. In 1938, Mrs. Harriet Downs of Lakewood, Ohio saw the photo in a magazine and recognized it as a doctored version of a photo of her two-year-old son, John May Warren, taken in 1932! The photo had been deliberately altered to make the child look sinister. How a baby photo from Ohio ended up in the hands of a hoaxer in Austria has never been discovered. Tragically, the boy in this photo died a few months later, at the age of eight, in a bicycle mishap.

First Automobile Fatality 1896 On August 17, 1896, Mrs. Bridget Driscoll, age 44, became the first recorded autombile fatality. She stepped off a curb in the Crystal Palace section of London, England and was struck by a demonstration car travelling 4 miles per hour driven by Arthur Edsel. (Really! That was his true name!) She was knocked to the ground and suffered a severe head injury which killed her. At the inquest following Mrs. Driscoll's untimely death, the cause was ruled to be an accident and Edsel was absolved of all blame. Coroner William Percy Morrison stated that he hoped such a tragic mishap would never happen again.

USS Forrestal Burns- July 29 1969 This is clipped from Trial by Fire: A Carrier Burns, a 1973 film produced by the United States Navy about the devastating 1967 fire aboard USS Forrestal off the coast of Vietnam. The film is unique in that it was produced from actual footage of the fire and emergency response efforts, both successful and unsuccessful, taken by on board cameras. Due to the first bomb blast killing nearly all of the specially trained firefighters on the ship, the remaining crew, who had no formal firefighting training, had to improvise. Though there were many firefighting tools available on the Forrestal, including emergency respirators, the general crew was not trained in their use and so were unable to use them correctly. In response to this tragedy, recommendations made were: development of a remote-control fire-fighting system for the flight deck, development of more stable ordnance, improvement in survival equipment, and increased training in emergency response and fire survival. This film has been used to teach new recruits firefighting and emergency response lessons learned in the mishap.

Ray Chapman Tragedy On August 16, 1920, Ray Chapman, the Cleveland Indians second baseman, became the only fatality in the history of major league baseball. Chapman died as a result of being hit in the head by a pitch thrown by New York Yankees pitcher Carl Mays. Chapman batted in an exaggerated crouch, so Mays' pitch was just barely out of the strike zone. Chapman died of a severe skull fracture about 12 hours after the mishap. Mays voluntarily turned himself into police and was quickly exonerated of all blame. Chapman's death prompted major league baseball to institute a policy that required soiled or damaged balls to be replaced by spotless white ones so batters could better see pitches. The days of the 'dead ball' and overwhelmingly dominant pitchers were over.
