Bewitched - Final Scene Today we are used to favorite sitcoms ending their runs with big finishes. That seldom used to be the case. Here is the last scene of the 252nd and final episode of Bewitched. It was produced in December 1971 and aired in March 1972. The episode's title is "The Truth, and Nothing But the Truth, So Help Me Sam." It's ordinary plot revolves around a unicorn pin which, because of a spell that Endora has placed on it, compels any mortal close to it to always tell the truth. There is no farewell scene--just Samantha and Darrin fittingly expressing their love for each other as the episode ends. By 1972, Bewitched had been moved by ABC to a deadly Saturday time slot directly against All in the Family. Neverthless, it still attracted decent enough ratings. There were initial plans for a ninth season. However, Elizabeth Montgomery and her husband Bill Asher (who produced the show) were divorcing, so the continuation of Bewitched would have been awkward.

Charley Ross Abduction Case - 1874 The first prominent child abduction in American history was the Charley Ross case. On July 1, 1874, four-year-old Charley Ross was playing with his five-year-old brother Walter in the front yard of their home in the affluent Germantown section of Philadelphia. Two men pulled up in a horse-drawn carriage. They offered the two brothers candy and fireworks if they would take a ride into town with them. The naive youngsters agreed. After a short ride, the carriage stopped in front of a store. Walter was given a quarter to buy fireworks. When he came out of the store, the carriage was gone. A sobbing Walter was found by a policeman. Walter explained what had happened. He described one of the men as having "a monkey nose." Not long afterward, ransom demands were mailed to Charley's father, Christian Ross, from various post offices in and around Philadelphia. The notes demanded the enormous sum of $20,000 for the boy's safe return. Christian was heavily in debt following the 1873 stock market crash and could not afford to play the ransom. The Pinkerton Detective Agency circulated thousands of handbills with an artist's drawing of Charley's face which made the case national news. Attempts to meet with the kidnappers on several occasions failed when the abductors never showed up. There were no significant developments in the case until December 1874 when two career criminals were shot while attempting to burglarize a judge's home in Long Island. One intruder, Bill Mosher, died instantly. The other, Joe Douglas, was mortally wounded. Before he died, Douglas confessed that he and Mosher had kidnapped Charley Ross in July. Contradictory statements were given as to whether the boy was still alive. Walter was taken to Long Island to identify the dead twosome. He agreed they were the men who had taken him for the carriage ride in July. Mosher was easily identified because of his deformed "monkey nose." The Ross family resolutely continued to pursue leads for Charley well into the 1930s. Hundreds of would-be Charley Rosses were investigated. None could be proven as legitimate. It is believed the admonition, "Don't take candy from strangers" was inspired by the Charley Ross kidnapping.

Babe Ruth - Just Pals This 1931 film, titled Just Pals, was one of a series of short baseball instructional films that Babe Ruth made in the early 1930s. The plot is a little bit on the corny side, but it is a fun peek back in time. Ruth was still in pretty good shape in 1931.

Charlie Chaplin - Great Dictator Speech The 1940 film The Great Dictator was Charlie Chaplin's first feature film in which he talked and did not play his famous Little Tramp character. In the movie Chaplin plays the dual role of a Jewish barber and his lookalike, Adenoid Hynkel--the fascist dictator of Tomania (an obvious caricature of Adolf Hitler). In this climactic scene, the barber impersonates Henkel and makes a radio speech to try to diffuse a world conflict. It's still powerful more than 70 years later.

1912 Olympics - Standing Long Jump The summer Olympics used to include standing jumping events: long jump, high jump and triple jump. Here's a film clip of the standing long jump competition from the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden. The 1912 Games were the last Olympics to feature standing jump disciplines. Norway is the last remaining country to feature them in their own national athletics championships. The United States Air Force Academy and Canada's Royal Military College still use the standing long jump as a way to gauge the physical fitness levels of their students.

Vanishing TV Character - Thorny Thornberry The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet ran for 435 episodes over an amazing 14 seasons on ABC from 1952 to 1966--a record for a non-animated sitcom that still stands today. From 1952 to 1957 Don DeFore played the Nelsons' good-natured next-door neighbor "Thorny" Thornberry in 96 episodes. (Whatever Thorny's real first name was, it was never mentioned). Thorny often exchanged playful barbs with Ozzie Nelson and gave him ill-timed advice. Sometimes he got caught up in whatever amusing complications befell the Nelson patriarch and his family. DeFore was nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in 1955 and was generally a popular part of the program. However, the show began to focus on different neighbors in the late 1950s (primarily Joe and Mary Jane Randolph and Doc Williams). Thorny, despite his popularity, just vanished without any explanation. DeFore later had a starring role in the 1960s sitcom Hazel in which he played Hazel's employer George Baxter.
