Biograph Girl Florence Lawrence Canadian born Florence Lawrence was America's first big movie star--but no one knew her name. During the first decade of the twentieth century, movie companies did not publicize their actors' names in order to keep their salaries down. Florence Lawrence made dozens of films for D.W. Griffith's Biograph Company and became the studio's most noteworthy star. Nevertheless she remained anonymous. Known to her fans only as 'the Biograph girl,' she was earning just $25 per week. When she left Biograph in 1910 to join the newly formed IMP company, her new studio started a false rumor that she had been killed in a streetcar accident in St. Louis. It then announced that 'the Biograph girl' was Florence Lawrence. She was alive and well and about to star in a new film for IMP. This was likely the first Hollywood publicity stunt. Lawrence appeared in more than 300 films, but her popularity waned almost as quickly as it had grown. By the 1920s she had only uncredited bit roles and was earning $75 per week. The Great Depression ruined her finanacially and she endured three unhappy marriages. In December 1938, a week before 53rd birthday, Lawrence committed suicide by ingesting ant paste.

John Wayne on The Beverly Hillbillies This is the last couple of minutes from my favorite episode of The Beverly Hillbillies (The Indians Are Coming). It's political incorrectness at its best! Granny learns that a native tribe has a territorial dispute with the Clampett land claim back in Tennessee. She expects the worst and assumes the 'Injuns' will soon be attacking. In order to prevent the Clampetts from going back to Tennessee to fight the Injuns, Mr. Drysdale arranges for some Hollywood stuntmen to simulate an Injun attack on the Clampett home in Beverly Hills! Throughout the episode Granny wishes John Wayne were present to help fight the Injuns. He shows up at the very end in a brief cameo appearance.

Ann Meyers Ann Meyers made sports history in 1979 when she inked a deal with the Indiana Pacers, becoming the first female NBA player. She didn't last long. She was cut before the regular season started. Her signing was widely considered to be a publicity stunt. Red Auerbach of the Boston Celtics commented, 'I know Annie, and she's a nice girl, but this is reminiscent of Bill Veeck signing that midget.'

Buster Keaton Falling Wall Stunt From the 1928 silent film Steamboat Bill Jr., this 18-second clip is one of the greatest stunts ever filmed--and all Buster Keaton had to do was stand still. That wall weighed five thousand pounds! Many of the movie crew were convinced Keaton would be killed and chose to walk off the set rather than watch this incredibly dangerous stunt.

Do Re Mi - Belgian Railroad Station Naomi alerted me to this terrific video a couple of weeks ago. It's too good not to share with everyone. At 8 a.m. on Monday, March 23, 2009, this joyful, creative stunt was staged at Antwerp, Belgium's Central Station. It was designed to publicize a cast search for The Sound of Music. Watch as dozens of dancers (in regular street clothes) emerge from the crowd and begin their surprise show! This is really uplifting. I wish I had been there!

Only Film Clip of Houdini Funeral On November 4,1926 Harry Houdini was buried in New York at Machphela Cemetery. 2,000 mourners attended. The short black and white film clip is as enigmatic as the man himself. He was interred in one of his own stunt coffins at age 52.
