Profumo Scandal 1963 The British love a good sex scandal or a good political scandal, so the combination of the two was irresistible in 1963. That year it was revealed that John Profumo, the British Secretary of State for War, who was married, had, in 1961, been having an affair with a much younger showgirl named Christine Keeler (pictured here). What made this especially troublesome for Profumo was that Keeler had also been liberally sharing her renowned horizontal pleasures with Yevgeny Ivanov, a naval attache to the Soviet Union's London embassy. During the height of the Cold War, the potential for dangerous pillow talk was a bigtime security breach. When the affair leaked out, Profumo at first denied the charges in parliament. Three months later he admitted they were true and was forced to resign. His prime minister, Harold MacMillan, himself resigned due to poor health a month later. It was undoubtedly exacerbated by the priapic shenanigans of Profumo. Keeler didn't come out of the scandal unscathed: She served nine months in the sneezer for perjury. The British government's report on the scandal became a national best-seller.

McBroom took the pictures at Farrah's poolside Bel Air, California home!! --On September 22, 1976, the first episode of Fawcett playing the character Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie's Angels was aired. Around the same time, her swimsuit poster was released. It went on to sell a still-unrivaled 12 million copies and she became known for her tousled hair and bright smile.

Jackpot Here's another 1970s game show I liked that didn't last too long: Jackpot. It aired on NBC from January 7, 1974 through September 26, 1975. Contestants had to solve riddles to win cash prizes. Geoff Edwards was the host. Sadly, only two episodes of this game show are known to exist on videotape!

The real Barbara Mackle police photo This is the real Barbara Mackle (police photo) In 1968, while a student at Emory College, Barbara Jane Mackle was kidnapped and buried alive in a plywood box containing food, water, and pipes leading to the outside air. The kidnappers demanded $500,000 in ransom, which Mackle's parents paid. She was rescued three and a half days later, and her captors were arrested and sent to prison. Her story was first told in the TV movie The Longest Night (1972) (TV). She wrote her own account in 1971, and this book served as the basis for another TV movie: 83 Hours 'Til Dawn (1990) (TV).

Guest Dies During TV Talk Show On June 5, 1971, Jerome Irving Rodale (pictured here) was a guest on Dick Cavett's prime time talk show. Rodale, a pioneer in organic foods and a longevity guru, had stated he intended to live to be 100 years old. When Cavett began interviewing his next guest (political journalist Pete Hammill), Rodale made a snoring-like sound and slumped over. Cavett thought Rodale had fallen asleep. 'Are we boring you, Mr. Rodale?' asked Cavett. Nope. The 72-year-old Rodale had succumbed to a fatal heart attack. The show was never aired.
