1972 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 6 Highlights For years it was believed only a few highlights of the 1972 Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers still existed. (Before 1980, TV networks often erased sports programming in order to reuse the expensive videotapes for other events. After all, the conventional wisdom was that nobody would be interested in seeing old sports events! For example, there is no surviving full videotape of Super Bowl I.) Someone at Madison Square Garden discovered the New York Rangers had filmed the sixth game of the Cup finals for their own purposes. In 2008 MSG network combined an audio tape of Dan Kelly's CBS broadcast (preserved by a Bruins fan) and dubbed it over the silent film the Rangers had made. The happy result is this 12-minute condensed version of the game in which the Bruins defeated the Rangers 3-0 to win their fifth Stanley Cup. Look for the brilliance of Boston's Bobby Orr to be the deciding factor. Note: You may have to crank up the sound to adequately hear the legendary voice of Dan Kelly do the play-by-play.

Tragic Child Actress Judith Barsi Judith Barsi was a prolific child actress who appeared in at least 72 commercials and a handful of movies and TV shows before her horrifying death at age 10 in 1988. Barsi was spotted by a talent scout at a skating rink when she was nearly six years old. He mistook her for a three-year-old. Extremely tiny for her age, she was able to play much younger roles. At age 10 she was only 3'8" tall. Excellent at understanding precisely what directors wanted from her, Barsi appeared in commercials advertising McDonald's restaurants, peanut butter, orange juice, potato chips, soup, and dolls. It is estimated that she was earning close to $100,000 a year from her acting gigs. Fans of the sitcom Cheers will recall Barsi playing the role of a new bartender's adorable little daughter in a 1986 episode titled Relief Bartender (see photo). One of Barsi's last projects was providing the voice of Ducky in the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time. Barsi's home life was a nightmare: Her father, Jozsef, had fled communist Hungary. He was a violent alcoholic who mentally and physically abused Judith and her mother Maria, who was also refugee from Hungary. Judith had told fellow actors that her father had threatened to kill her on several occasions. On July 25, 1988, Barsi was shot to death by her father while she slept in the family's Los Angeles home. He also killed his wife. He stayed with the bodies for two days before burning them and turning his gun on himself. Barsi was supposed to audition for another role on the day she was murdered.

Dorothy Arnold - Missing Socialite One of the most intriguing missing persons cases in American history centers around a 24-year-old New York socialite, Dorothy Arnold, who seemingly vanished into thin air one afternoon in New York City in 1910. Arnold was from a wealthy family, the daughter of the 73-year-old head of a prosperous import company and the niece of a Supreme Court justice. Educated at Bryn Mawr, Dorothy was an aspiring writer. On Monday, December 12, 1910, Dorothy left her New York City home at about 11 a.m. telling her mother she would be shopping for an evening gown for an upcoming event. Dorothy left the house with only the clothes on her back and about $30. Arnold went to a candy store and a bookstore where she bought items using the Arnold family credit. When she left the bookstore, Dorothy encountered Gladys King, a friend. King was the last known person to have seen Dorothy. No one who saw Dorothy on December 12 noticed anything odd about her behavior. She apparently never purchased the dress, so she had either lied to her mother or had been interrupted before she could buy it. On the day of her disappearance, Dorothy was fashionably dressed and was a familiar face in New York City. Therefore, it is unlikely that Dorothy could have ventured far without being noticed. That evening, when Dorothy strangely had not returned home for dinner, the Arnold family began making inquiries among her friends. They were unable to turn up any news of their daughter. Fearing some sort of scandal, Dorothy's family did not call the police right away--which was typical of the era. Anyone calling the Arnold home inquiring about Dorothy was told she was in bed with a headache. Dorothy's parents hired a lawyer who privately tried to find Dorothy for six weeks. His investigation got nowhere, so the police were finally contacted in late January of 1911. By that time, Dorothy's trail had gone hopelessly cold. Newspapers played up the story--especially in New York City. It led to several hoaxes, including two phony ransom notes being sent to the Arnold home and a postcard purportedly sent overseas by Dorothy. These were quickly dismissed as inauthentic. After 75 days, the police closed the case under the assumption that Dorothy was dead. However as late as 1935 the New York City police were still receiving tips about alleged sightings of Dorothy. So what happened to Dorothy? She had been unofficially engaged to a 42-year-old man named George (Junior) Griscom--a situation which displeased her family who considered him to be a loafer. There was absolutely no evidence that she and Junior had a falling out or had run away together. In fact, Junior put out several ads imploring Dorothy to contact him, but to no avail. He eventually moved on with his life. Another theory was that Dorothy was upset that her parents had cruelly mocked her for wanting to become a writer and because two of her stories had recently been rejected by magazines. Thus some people speculate Dorothy committed suicide believing that she was a failure. Still no one had evidence that she was anything but happy on the day she disappeared. Yet another theory is that Dorothy died at an illegal abortion clinic and her body was swiftly incinerated in the building's furnace--which was known to happen in 1910. In 1921, John H. Ayers, who headed New York City's Missing Persons Bureau, curiously told an auditorium filled with high school students that Dorothy's fate had always been known to the police and her family but he did not elaborate any further. When journalists pressed him for more details, he quickly claimed he had been misquoted.

Bobby Hull scores in 1963 NHL ASG They may sound unbelievable, but a long time ago NHL players took pride in the the league's annual All-Star Game. They actually played defense and cared about the outcome of the game. Here's a clip of Bobby Hull scoring in the 1963 game. At that time the ASG featured the defending Stanley Cup champions versus a team of all-stars from the other NHL clubs. This game ended in a 3-3 tie between the All-Stars and Toronto Maple Leafs. (Yeah, the Toronto Maple Leafs were once the defending Stanley Cup champions. Imagine that!)

Life With Lucy - Opening Credits After being away from sitcoms for 12 years, Lucille Ball returned to TV in the fall of 1986 with great fanfare at age 75 as the star of the ABC comedy Life With Lucy. (Here is the opening montage. The theme song was performed by Eydie Gorme.) Madelyn Davis and Bob Carroll, who had written scripts for I Love Lucy, were the show's producers. The premise of the show was that the recently widowed Lucy Barker decides to help out at the hardware store her husband ran. The only problem was she had had nothing to do with the store while her husband was alive, so she was clueless about everything. Eighty-year-old Gale Gordon also came out of retirement to play Lucy's husband's business partner Curtis McGibbon. Lucy had just moved in with her daughter Margo's family. Margo was married to Curtis's son, a law student. At the end of the first episode Curtis moves into the same house too. Got it? After a decent showing in the ratings for the first episode, Life With Lucy steadily plummeted downward. Even guest appearances by John Ritter and Audrey Meadows failed to halt the show's decline. After eight weeks it was dismally ranked 73rd out of 76 shows. Even though ABC had committed to 22 episodes, the scripts for 14 shows had been written, and 13 had been filmed, ABC pulled the plug after the eighth episode aired. Lucy was said to have been heartbroken that the public no longer wanted to see her on TV. She died about 30 months later.

Boston Bruins vs NY Rangers Fans - 1979 The NHL in the 1970s could often be wild. This was epitomized as the decade neared its end on Sunday, December 23, 1979. On that date the visiting Boston Bruins angrily invaded the stands at Madison Square Garden to administer frontier-style justice on a few New York Rangers fans who had taken some liberties. (It's hard to see the exact cause of the fracas in this video, but this is what happened: A fan, 30-year-old John Kaptain, reached over the glass and belted Boston's Stan Jonathan across the face with a rolled-up program and drew blood. Kaptain then grabbed Jonathan's stick. After that...mayhem ensued!) Among the most enraged Bruins was the normally peaceable Peter McNab. Feisty Terry O'Reilly, not surprisingly, was the most zealous participant. The enduring image, however, is Mike Milbury ripping a shoe from Kaptain's foot and beating him with it! Milbury eventually threw Kaptain's shoe onto the ice. O'Reilly and Milbury would both later coach the Bruins. Kaptain, who attended the game with his brother James and his father Manny, had to make his way home from Madison Square Garden minus one shoe. Some 300 Ranger fans attacked the Bruins' bus outside the arena. Because of this crazy incident, the NHL mandated the height of the protective glass surrounding all teams' ice surfaces be dramatically increased. John Kaptain died in 1999.

Missing Airplane From 1950 - Northwest Flight 2501 Commercial airliners vanishing are not new. On the night of June 23, 1950, Northwest Orient Airlines flight 2501 departed from New York City en route to its final destination of Seattle with a scheduled stopover in Minneapolis. It never made it to either stop. Sometime around 1:13 a.m. the DC-4 vanished over Lake Michigan near Benton Harbor, MI not long after its captain, Robert Lind, requested permission from air-traffic control to lower its altitude by 1000 meters to avoid stormy conditions. That permission was denied due to heavy air traffic. The airplane should have been spotted on radar near Milwaukee shortly thereafter, but instead it vanished. It was filled to capacity with 55 passengers and a crew of three. Some debris--including small body fragments--washed ashore but the plane itself has never been found, despite sonar-assisted searches and trawlers dragging the lake bottom. Thus no one knows what really happened to it. Researchers in 2008 discovered that the human remains were buried secretly in an unmarked grave without the victims' families being notified. At the time it was the worst airline disaster in American history.
