1931 Bela Lugosi Movie Poster Lugosi, the youngest of four children, was born Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó' in Lugos, Hungary on October 20, 1882. On arrival in America, the 6-feet-1 inch, 180 lb. Lugosi worked for some time as a laborer, then returned to the theater within the Hungarian-American community. He was approached to star in a play adapted by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston from Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. The Horace Liveright production was successful. Despite his excellent notices in the title role, and appearances in some American silent films, Lugosi had to campaign vigorously for the chance to repeat his stage success in Tod Browning's movie version of Dracula (1931), produced by Universal Pictures.

McDonalds Arch Deluxe flop McDonalds has had a few flops on their menu over the years. None was more costly than the Arch Deluxe fiasco of 1996. McDonald's marketed the sandwich as an adults-only burger. A very odd $100-million advertising campaign was launched to emphasize the point. Commercials featured kids who didn't want anything to do with the burger. (Some even said it was yucky.) Surveys showed the bizarre ad campaign was turning off potential customers from all demographic groups. Moreover, the Arch Deluxe was the highest priced burger on the menu, which did not help sales either. McDonald's then tried to salvage the burger with a more traditional advertising approach: This time the commercials showed McDonald's icon Ronald McDonald enoying the burger while doing adult activities, such as playing golf. It was too late, though. Even coupons allowing people to buy the burger for just a dollar failed to save the Arch Deluxe from extinction. McDonalds discontinued the sandwich in 1997.

VJ Day Smoochers This famous photo was taken by Life Magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt during the impromptu VJ Day celebrations in New York City's Times Square. For years no one knew who the two anonymous smoochers were. In 1980 Edith Shain came forward, claiming to be the nurse. When the 50th anniversary approached, Carl Muscarello declared himself to be the sailor. The two kissers got together once again in 1995 to recreate their famous pose on Tom Snyder's television program.

Mothers Day Intruder on Whats My Line Why live TV is better than taped shows: On May 10, 1959, an intruder rushed onto the set of What's My Line. Milton Berle had just been revealed as the mystery guest. The Associated Press reported what occurred: "...a man in the studio audience of 550 left his seat, walked to the stage, and approached the official guest, comedian Milton Berle. The man shook hands with Berle. He then announced "I finally made it on Mothers Day." Without another word, the man walked backstage. Police later identified him as Cornelius McConell, 44, a New York City postal worker. He was sent to Bellevue Hospital for psychiatric examination."
