TV Flop - Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show Despite Chuck Barris and NBC constantly clashing over the content of The Gong Show, the network was desperate for any prime-time hit in the late 1970s. Therefore, in early 1978, the zany Barris was permitted to create and host The Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show--an hour-long variety program that featured guest appearances by celebrities and encore performances by some of the more memorable oddball acts from The Gong Show. Few people saw it as it was scheduled on Tuesdays from 8 to 9 p.m--directly against the two most popular TV shows in America at the time: Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. It was cancelled in April after eight episodes had aired. Noel Holsten, the Orlando Sentinel-Star's TV critic, wrote, "[Barris] reeled around the stage as though he'd been gobbling hallucinogenic mushrooms and looking somewhat like a subterranean fungus." Barris accepted Holsten's bad review with cheerfulness: He read it during an episode of The Gong Show. (The Gong Show was booted off NBC in June.) Here's a brief promo for the February 28 premiere episode of the Rah-Rah Show.

Lou Gehrig Farewell Speech - Full Version Most baseball fans have seen the newsreel footage of Lou Gehrig's poignant 1939 farewell speech. (I posted it a while back.) For some unfathomable reason, the speech was severely edited. On the 75th anniversary of it in 2014, Keith Olbermann added the missing dialogue.

Confederate Veterans Give the Rebel Yell This newsreel clip, probably from the early 1930s, shows a handful of aged veterans of the Confederate Army giving the famous 'rebel yell.' As you can see, there was no single type of rebel yell. Many varieties existed.

Canada Beats USSR - 1955 IIHF Tourney The International Ice Hockey Federation has been holding world championship tourneys since 1908. Prior to 1977 the events operated as strictly amateur tourneys much like the Olympic Games once did. Canada typically sent local teams to the IIHF championship and still routinely dominated the tourneys against European national teams. In 1954 the Soviet Union sent a team to world championship for the first time and surprised Canada 7-2 to win the title in Stockholm. With the tournament being held in West Germany in 1955, Canada sent its national amateur finalist team--the Penticton (BC) Vees--to regain national honor. Nine teams competed in the round-robin event. Both the Soviet Union and Canada were 7-0 going into their meeting, so the winner would get the gold medals. The crowd in Krefeld, West Germany included numerous Canadian military personnel stationed nearby along with boisterous German locals who hated all things Russian. The Vees--led by the three Warwick brothers--won handily, 5-0. The Canadian team only allowed six goals in eight games. Here is about a minute of silent newsreel footage of the last game--including two Canadian goals. There's a terrific monument in Penticton that honors the 1955 Vees. History does repeat itself: Sixty years later Canada won the 2015 tourney by defeating the Russians again by five goals. This time the score was 6-1.

Funeral of Queen Victoria - 1901 When Great Britain's Queen Victoria died at age 81 in 1901, it marked the end of a record reign lasting more than 63 years. Some historians claim the end of the Victorian Era also was the end of the heyday of the British Empire. Here is British Pathe's newsreel footage of Victoria's funeral cortege. Look at the enormous crowds lining the route.

Shirley Temple Birthday 1935 Here's a brief clip, narrated by Lowell Thomas, chronicling Shirley Temple's birthday festivities in 1935. This newsreel says Shirley is celebrating her sixth birthday. That's what Fox studios and Shirley herself thought. Nope. She actually had her seventh birthday in 1935. (Her mom had chopped a year off her age, listing 1929 to be Shirley's year of birth instead of 1928. Mrs. Temple had been advised by the father of another child actor to fudge the year of Shirley's birth to make her appear even younger. It was supposed to enable her to get more acting roles. I guess it worked.) Be that as it may, Shirley was an adorable child--at any age.

Maureen Connolly Training for Comeback - 1954 Nine-time Grand Slam tennis champion Maureen Connolly is featured in this newsreel clip training for an attempted comeback in late 1954 or early 1955. Five months earlier, just after winning her third successive Wimbledon singles title, 19-year-old "Little Mo" had her right leg horribly fractured in a horseback riding accident. (Look at the awful surgical scar!) This clip shows Connolly steadfastly working to try to regain her leg strength and agility through a regimen of ballet, tap dancing and tennis drills. Despite her optimistic statement at the end of this clip, Connolly's comeback never materialized. Connolly was unsatisfied with her progress and felt she could never regain her championship form. In April 1955 she abandoned her return to tennis.
