Ann Bancroft Born as Anna Maria Italiano in the Bronx in 1931, Anne Bancroft didn't quite fall into the category of a 'classic' actress. She didn't break into films until 1952. But she appeared on screen with Marilyn Monroe, Richard Widmark, Cornel Wilde, Susan Hayward, and Victor Mature. After appearing in her first film, but not really finding the roles she wanted, she returned to New York and the stage, finding success, and a Tony award opposite Henry Fonda in 'Two For the Seesaw' (1958). The following year she appeared in the stage version of 'The Miracle Worker', and eventually returned to Hollywood in 1962, starring with Patty Duke in the film adaptation of the play, and winning a Best Actress Oscar with her first nomination. She was on a roll throughout the 60's, including a second Best Actress Oscar nomination for 'The Pumpkin Eater' (1964), then '7 Women' (1966), and finally her famous role as Mrs. Robinson in 'The Graduate' (1967), resulting in another Oscar nomination and a lifetime association with the part. She was nominated five times for Best Actress. Ann was married to the great comedy director Mel Brooks since 1964, and worked with him many times. She was still a very young 73 years old when she passed away on June 6, 2005, and is missed by so many of us.

What Ever Happened to ....CATHERINE BACH, who played Daisy Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard from 1979 to 1985. Like many 1970s TV stars, Catherine found the movie offers, poster contracts, personal appearances and talk-show gigs slowly evaporating as her series faded from the public's memory. In the past several years, she has been involved in wildlife conservation and domestic violence issues. In 1994 she testified before Congress on behalf of the Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act. Because of the feature film with Jessica Simpson playing the role of Daisy Duke, Bach has been asked to make more personal appearances.

Zulu Better Known for his James Bond theme, John Barry also turned out just as memorable music for Zulu, Out of Africa and Dances With Wolves just to mention a few. This film was also Michael Caine's first major role on screen.

Suzanne Pleshette  Dies Jan 19th 2008  She Will Be Missed Suzanne Pleshette, the husky-voiced star best known for her role as Bob Newhart's sardonic wife, Emily, on television's long-running "The Bob Newhart Show," has died at age 70. Pleshette, whose career included roles in such films as Hitchcock's "The Birds" and in Broadway plays including "The Miracle Worker," died of respiratory failure Saturday evening at her Los Angeles home, said her attorney Robert Finkelstein, also a family friend. Pleshette underwent chemotherapy for lung cancer in 2006. "The Bob Newhart Show, a hit throughout its six-year run, starred comedian Newhart as a Chicago psychiatrist surrounded by eccentric patients. Pleshette provided the voice of reason. Four years after the show ended in 1978, Newhart went on to the equally successful "Newhart" series in which he was the proprietor of a New England inn populated by more eccentrics. When that show ended in 1990, Pleshette reprised her role - from the first show - in one of the most clever final episodes in TV history. It had Newhart waking up in the bedroom of his "The Bob Newhart Show" home with Pleshette at his side. He went on to tell her of the crazy dream he'd just had of running an inn filled with eccentrics. "If I'm in Timbuktu, I'll fly home to do that," Pleshette said of her reaction when Newhart told her how he was thinking of ending the show. Born Jan. 31, 1937, in New York City, Pleshette began her career as a stage actress after attending the city's High School of the Performing Arts and studying at its Neighborhood Playhouse. She was often picked for roles because of her beauty and her throaty voice. "When I was 4," she told an interviewer in 1994, "I was answering the phone, and (the callers) thought I was my father. So I often got quirky roles because I was never the conventional ingenue." She met her future husband, Tom Poston, when they appeared together in the 1959 Broadway comedy "The Golden Fleecing," but didn't marry him until more than 40 years later. Although the two had a brief fling, they went on to marry others. By 2000 both were widowed and they got back together, marrying the following year. "He was such a wonderful man. He had fun every day of his life," Pleshette said after Poston died in April 2007. Among her other Broadway roles was replacing Anne Bancroft in "The Miracle Worker," the 1959 drama about Helen Keller, in New York and on the road. Meanwhile, she had launched her film career with Jerry Lewis in 1958 in "The Geisha Boy." She went on to appear in numerous television shows, including "Have Gun, Will Travel,""Alfred Hitchcock Presents,""Playhouse 90" and "Naked City." By the early 1960s, Pleshette attracted a teenage following with her youthful roles in such films as "Rome Adventure,""Fate Is the Hunter,""Youngblood Hawke" and "A Distant Trumpet." She married fellow teen favorite Troy Donahue, her co-star in "Rome Adventure," in 1964 but the union lasted less than a year. She was married to Texas oilman Tim Gallagher from 1968 until his death in 2000. Pleshette matured in such films as Hitchcock's "The Birds" and the Disney comedies "The Ugly Dachshund,""Blackbeard's Ghost" and "The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin." Over the years, she also had a busy career in TV movies, including playing the title role in 1990's "Leona Helmsley, the Queen of Mean." More recently, she appeared in several episodes of the TV sitcoms "Will & Grace" and "8 Simple Rules ... For Dating My Teenage Daughter." In a 1999 interview, Pleshette observed that being an actress was more important than being a star. "I'm an actress, and that's why I'm still here," she said. "Anybody who has the illusion that you can have a career as long as I have and be a star is kidding themselves."

Teenagers From Outer Space with Trivia and Tidbits Are you ready for a really BAD movie? In 1959, on a shoe-string budget, director Tom Graeff produced, wrote, filmed, edited and had a starring role in his movie 'Teenagers from Outer Space', which was released as a double feature with the second Godzilla film 'Gigantis, the Fire Monster, and was shown mostly at drive-ins. Tom's boyfriend, Chuck Roberts, under the stage name of David Love, is one of a "gang of spaced-out teens" sent to Earth to prepare the way for a lobster-like race of invaders. When one of the 'delinquents', Derek (David Love), falls for an Earth girl, the others hunt him down with ray-guns. All the while, the alien monster grows so large it can attack the nearby town. Would you be honest enough to admit if you actually paid good money to see this?

Doubledy Deep in Chocolate MMMMMM...I'm such a chocoholic!! Here's a 60's 'Three Musketeers' commercial with Joe E Brown, that was shown somewhere between 'RUFF 'N' REDDY' and the 'DENNIS THE MENACE' shows on Saturday mornings. Brown was a big star in comedies in the 30's, but if he's remembered at all now, it's usually for his role in "Some Like It Hot". Three Musketeers got its name because it originally came in three separate pieces: strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate. Later it became just a single chocolate bar but the Mars Company kept the name.

With a Little Help From My Friends Performed By Joe Cocker And The Grease Band Joe Cocker - With a Little Help From My Friends. Joe Cocker & The Greaseband performing With a Little Help From My Friends (NOT @ WOODSTOCK)Recorded in London, it is vintage stuff, and 100 years from its making will no doubt be respected for the historic and studious record that it is. *****IN DEDICATION, With a Little Help From My Friends - The keyboard player was Chris Stainton, another Sheffield born man (known to his friends as Robin) who went on to tour extensively with Eric Clapton. The bassist was Alan Spenner, who went on to play in the UK white soul outfit Kokomo, with rhythm guitarist Neil Hubbard. Spenner is rumoured to be the first white man to be offered a session job at Motown Records. Drummer Bruce Rowland later joined Fairport Convention from 1975 through 1979. Henry McCullough was the lead guitarist, a role he later occupied in Paul McCartney's Wings, and continues today as a solo artist.
