Muhammad Ali SI Cover 1980 "He's no Liston. He's no Frazier. He's only Larry Holmes and he's nothing..." Muhammad Ali's brave trash talk about world heavyweight champion Larry Holmes prior to the former's ill-fated comeback graced the cover of this 1980 issue of Sports Illustrated. It rang hollow, though, as Holmes destroyed Ali in a horribly one-sided fight, stopping the old champ in 10 rounds.

Andrea True- Singer of Disco Hit Dies at 68 Andrea True, the disco star who had such hits as 'More More More' and 'What's Your Name, What's Your Number,' died Nov. 7 in a Kingston, N.Y. hospital, the Daily Freeman reports. True, born Andrea Marie Truden, originally planned to become an actress in New York but became a porn star in films such as Deep Throat Part II and Lady on the Couch. True's career in music began when she went to Jamaica to film a commercial in 1975 but was not allowed to leave the country with the money she had earned. Instead of handing over her money, she recorded an early version of her eventual hit "More, More, More" and left Jamaica with the master tape. The song was remixed and released in 1976, becoming one of the iconic songs of the disco era. Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/andrea-true-dead-at-68-20111123#ixzz1gMVzOEHC

Marketing Blunder - White Coca-Cola Cans On December 1, 2011, Coca-Cola temporarily replaced its traditional red cans with a white design to draw attention to the plight of polar bears in the warming arctic. While the cause may have been good, the public's reaction to the move was overwhelmingly negative. People routinely mistook regular Coca-Cola for Diet Coke which comes in a silver can. The company received complaints from devoted fans of both Coca-Cola and Diet Coke: Diabetics and others who cannot consume sugary drinks were especially miffed when they bought the wrong product. Sales suffered as people who were looking for the traditional red cans couldn't find them. One convenience store owner in New Jersey reported that several customers tried to return opened cans when they realized they had purchased regular Coke instead of Diet Coke. On January 1, 2012, Coca-Cola ended the polar bear 'awareness program' and announced a return to the red cans of its popular 125-year-old beverage. The lesson of Coca-Cola's white can debacle? "Don't mess with the brand," said one marketing expert.

Johnnie Ray 1927-1990 Johnnie Ray is almost forgotten today, but he was a huge singing star in the early 1950s. At the peak of his career, Ray's income was $35,000 a week. Born in Oregon in 1927, Ray had top 40 hits until 1957. Despite being skinny, pigeon-toed, half-deaf and effeminate, this highly emotional performer was the most popular male singer of the pre-Elvis Presely era. Indeed, when Elvis first started out, he was often introduced on stage as "the new Johnnie Ray". Known as "the Prince of Wails" for his distinctive singing style, Ray is mostly remembered for his lip-quivering early 1950s hits such as Cry; Please, Mr Sun; and The Little White Cloud That Cried. His live performances, in which he sometimes played the piano, were wildly unpredictable. It was not uncommon for Ray to break into tears or flop to the stage floor while belting out a tune. His 1954 recording of Such A Night was the first chart hit to be banned by the BBC for its "suggestive" lyrics. Several American radio stations followed suit. Nevertheless, it still ended up topping the British charts. Ray had an interesting personal life: He became deaf in his right ear at age 13 after an accident at a Boy Scout camp and prominently wore a large hearing aid for the rest of his life. He was twice arrested in Detroit for soliciting sex from men. The first arrest was in 1951 just before he became famous. (He quietly pled guilty and paid a fine.) The second arrest was in 1959, but he was acquitted by an all-female jury. He is rumored to have had a long affair with newspaper writer Dorothy Kilgallen (of What's My Line? fame) that began after his first of two mystery guest appearances on the show. Ray was a heavy drinker who was hospitalized for alcoholism in 1960. He died in 1990, at age 63, from liver disease.

Hal March Hal March, born Harold Mendelson, was best known as the host of the popular 1950s quiz show The $64,000 Question from 1955 to 1958. This TV Guide cover is from August 1955 when the show was ascending to the top of the TV ratings after just three months on the air. Although no scandal was ever associated with the show, The $64,000 Question was axed in 1958 when rigging scandals involving other prime time game shows soured the public's appetite for them. March was also an actor. He appeared on a 1966 episode of The Lucy Show as a comedian whose partner was a very large monkey (played by a man in a monkey suit). March was hoping to make a comeback as a game show host in the fall of 1969 with It's Your Bet, but ill health quashed those plans. After completing about 13 weeks of tapings, March complained of weakness and tiredness. A medical exam confirmed the worst: March, a lifelong heavy smoker, had an advanced case of lung cancer. He died on January 22, 1970 at the age of 49.

Lauren Bacall and Harry Truman The photograph from February 1945, taken at the National Press Club in Washington, was considered almost scandalous in its day: Lauren Bacall, a sultry 20-year-old Hollywood newcomer, sits on a piano being played by Vice-President Harry Truman.

Marion Lorne - Aunt Clara Even though Marion Lorne had five decades of stage work on her resume, she didn't become widely famous as an actress until the last few years of her life. Her occasional role as the befuddled, forgetful, and utterly lovable Aunt Clara on the sitcom Bewitched made her a TV favorite. In her episodes on the show, Clara (who was one of Samantha Stevens' relatives, and thus a witch) would unintentionally cause chaos in the Stevens household with her inability to control her spell-casting powers. Lorne was awarded a well deserved Emmy for her role in 1968. Sadly, the award came posthumusly; she had died of a heart attack at age 82 a few weeks earlier. Elizabeth Montgomery accepted the Emmy on Lorne's behalf.
