The Ghost and Mrs. Muir The Ghost and Mrs Muir was one of those TV programs that was liked by the critics but was generally met with a yawn by the public. It was based on a 1947 movie by the same name. The premise of the sitcom was that a young widowed writer with two children buys a house in Maine that is possessed by the ghost of long-deceased seafarer Captain Daniel Gregg (played by Edward Mulhare). After initial resentment of his house being occupied by strangers, Captain Gregg eventually looks out for the Muir family's best interests. Hope Lange had the starring role of Mrs. Muir and remarkably won Emmys for outstanding actress in a comedy series for each of the seasons the show aired on network TV. A total of 46 episodes were made over two seasons. The first season, 1968-69, aired on NBC. The second season, 1969-70, aired on ABC. Charles Nelson Reilly, before he wore a toupee, played Claymore Gregg, the nephew of the sea captain who sold his uncle's house to Mrs. Muir. This is the opening montage.

Funeral of King Edward VII This is a still photo of the funeral of Great Britain's King Edward VII in London on May 20, 1910. It brought together a remarkable collection of European royalty never before or afterward assembled. Mourning the 'uncle of Europe' was the new British king, Edward's son, George V. In addition, there were eight crowned heads in the procession: the German Emperor, plus the kings of Norway, Greece, Spain, Bulgaria, Denmark, Portugal, and Belgium. There were about 30 European princes among the mourners too--including Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. His assassination in 1914 was the powder keg that triggered the First World War. Most of the royalty present at Edward's funeral met inglorious ends as many European monarchies crumbled during the war or shortly afterward.

John Banner Here's a face that fans of 1960s TV can't forget: John Banner who played the bumbling and thoroughly lovable Sgt. Hans Schultz on Hogan's Heroes from 1965 to 1971. Apart from his steady role on Hogan's Heroes, the Austrian-born Banner made over 70 other television appearances between 1950 and 1972, including roles on Mister Ed, The Lucy Show, Perry Mason, The Partridge Family, The Untouchables, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. In a 1954 episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Banner and Werner Klemperer--who would later be cast as Colonel Klink in Hogan's Heroes--both had roles. Banner, a Jew, was on tour with an acting troupe in Switzerland when the Nazis occupied Austria in 1938. Banner opted to emigrate to the United States and continue his acting career there. By the 1960s, the once lean Banner's weight had increased to 280 pounds. This helped gain him the part of the kindly inept German POW camp guard in Hogan's Heroes. The gentle Banner was loved not only by the viewers, but by the show's other cast members too. Banner defended his character, telling TV Guide in 1967: 'Schultz is not a Nazi. I see Schultz as the representative of some kind of goodness in any generation.' After Hogan's Heroes was cancelled in 1971, Banner starred as the inept gangster Uncle Latzi in the short-lived television sitcom, The Chicago Teddy Bears. His last acting appearance was in the March 7, 1972 episode of The Partridge Family. He then retired to his native Vienna. There he died suddenly of an aneurysm on his 63rd birthday on January 28, 1973.

122-Year-Old Jeanne Calment - Oldest Person Ever Jeanne Louise Calment (21 February 1875 – 4 August 1997) was a French woman who had the longest confirmed human lifespan in history: 122 years and 164 days. She resided in Arles, France for her entire life. Calment outlived both her daughter and grandson. She entered the Guinness Book of Records in 1988 as the world's oldest living person. On October 17, 1995 she became the oldest person ever, having surpassed the highly disputed case of Shigechiyo Izumi of Japan. Calment became the last living documented person to have been born in the 1870s when the Japanese super-centenarian Tane Ikai (born 1879) died on July 12, 1995, and was thence more than five years older than any other living human being until her death more than two years later. She outlived no fewer than 329 undisputedly verified super-centenarians. (A super-centenarian is a person who has attained 110 years.) Calment's lifespan has been thoroughly documented by scientific study, with more records having been produced to verify her age than for any other case. She is the only person confirmed to have reached 120 years of age. Calment came to prominence at age 113 in 1988 during a local observance of the hundredth anniversary of artist Vincent van Gogh's 1888 visit to Arles. The 13-year-old Calment had briefly met Van Gogh at her uncle's store where the Dutch painter had gone to buy art supplies. Calment unflatteringly remembered the famed artist as being ugly, unfriendly and rude! The photo below shows Calment celebrating her 121st birthday in 1996.

Me at Graceland The Day Elvis Died This was the day Elvis had died August 16, 1977. I was stationed in Millington Tennessee while in the Navy. When I arrived at Graceland nobody was there, I guess the word was still getting out around the world. The next day the place was jammed. This is me with Elvis's uncle Victor, the girl owned the Polaroid camera that took this photo, I haven't seen her since. Not only did I get to meet Elvis's uncle but we were greeted inside the foyer of the mansion. That wouldn't happen in this day and age!

Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. “It was a beautiful spring day,” recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, “There’s someone shooting at people out there!” She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.
