Gabriel Melgar - Replacement Chico Chico and the Man was a hit sitcom for NBC in the mid-1970s. Starring Freddie Prinze and Jack Albertson, the show debuted in 1974 and centered on the relationship between crusty, aging widower Ed Brown (a "seventh-generation WASP" whose garage was the last white-owned business in his Los Angeles neighborhood) and his Mexican-American employee Francisco (Chico) Rodriguez. Chico and The Man was a regular fixture in the top 10 until Prinze's shocking suicide at age 22 in January 1977. Enough shows with Prinze had been made in advance to last several weeks. The remaining episodes of the 1976-77 season focused on minor cast members. Common sense dictated that NBC should cancel the show, but instead a revamped Chico and the Man debuted in the fall of 1977. Twelve-year-old Gabriel Melgar was cast as illegal-immigrant orphan Raul Garcia who had stowed away in Ed Brown's car when he was returning from a fishing trip to Mexico. Brown referred to Raul as "Chico," explaining to the boy, "You're all Chicos to me!" Prinze's character was said to be visiting relatives in Mexico. However, in one episode Raul finds Chico's belongings in a closet and starts to play his guitar. Ed has an emotional meltdown, smashes the guitar, and eventually explains to Raul that Chico had died. Ratings for the revised version of Chico and the Man were terrible, so the show was axed at the end of the 1977-78 season. Melgar didn't do much in showbiz after the cancellation of Chico and the Man. He appeared in one episode of CHiPs, one episode of Love Boat, and he had a role in a forgettable 1979 action flick titled Jaguar Lives--and that was it. According to one fansite, Melgar is now employed in the biomedical field.

HMS Hood Explosion 1941 The battlecruiser HMS Hood was the pride of the British navy between the two world wars. It was actually obsolete by the time the Second World War started, but it was urgently needed despite its shortcomings. On May 24, 1941, in the Battle of the Denmark Strait, the Hood was engaged in an 11-minute skirmish with the German warships Prinz Eugen and Bismarck. A single 1700-pound armor-piercing shell from the Bismarck ripped into the Hood causing a giant fireball and a subsequent massive explosion. The Hood split into two sections and sank in just three minutes. About 150 minutes later, only three surviving British sailors from the Hood's crew of 1,415 were plucked from the cold Atlantic by the destroyer Electra: Ted Briggs, Robert Tilburn, and William Dundas. None was older than 20. The sinking of the Hood and the loss of more than 99.7 percent of its crew stunned the British public. The three survivors became reluctant celebrities and were always emotional when pressed to talk about that day in 1941. Dundas died in an automobile accident in 1965. Tilburn died in 1995. Briggs, the youngest of the three, died in 2008 at the age of 85. Briggs participated in a 2001 ceremony in which a memorial plaque was laid on the Hood's wreckage and debris field.
