The Smith Family - Forgotten Show The Smith Family was an ABC program that couldn't decide if it wanted to be a comedy or a drama, so it tried to be both. It ran from January 1971 to June 1972. It had two very different openings for its two seasons, as this clip shows. Henry Fonda starred as Chad Smith, a veteran Los Angeles police officer. Janet Blair played his wife Betty. Ron Howard (billed as Ronny Howard) played the oldest son. The first season focused on the light-hearted family aspect of officer Smith's life. When that failed to generate the expected ratings, the emphasis was put on the policing aspect of Smith's life in the second season.

Jeremy Gelbwaks - Original Chris Partridge The Partridge Family was an ABC musical sitcom that ran for four seasons from 1970 to 1974. The show's premise was that recently widowed mother Shirley Partridge and her five children decide to form a pop group to make ends meet and earn money for the children's college funds. The show was loosely based on the real family musical group The Cowsills. In the show's first season Chris Partridge, the drummer and youngest son, was played by Jeremy Gelbwaks. (He seldom had more than two lines in an episode. In fact, in the last episode Gelbwaks appeared in, he had no lines whatsoever.) After the 1970-71 season Gelbwaks was replaced in the cast by Brian Forster. The reason why the change was made varies depending upon whom you ask. Gelbwaks' father was a federal government employee whose job forced him to relocate from California to Virginia just as the show's first season was concluding. The move made it difficult for Jeremy to continue his role as Chris Partridge. However, stories persist that Gelbwaks was a hellion on the set and the show's producers wanted to get rid of him. Danny Bonaduce (who played middle son Danny Partridge--and was admittedly no angel himself) once stated in an interview that Gelbwaks was "psychotic." David Cassidy (who played oldest son and teen heartthrob Keith Partridge) apparently couldn't stand Gelbwaks' on-set antics--which included kicking other cast members just before the director called "Action!" Whether Gelbwaks left on his own accord because of his family's out-of-state move or whether he was was forced out of the cast because of his bad behavior remains a matter of conjecture. Perhaps it was a combination of the two. ABC received zero letters of complaint regarding the cast change. Gelbwaks never worked in show business again. According to a fansite, Gelbwaks is married and lives in New Orleans. Gelbwaks appeared on Danny Bonaduce's short-lived syndicated talk show in 1995 when most of The Partridge Family cast gathered for a 25th anniversary reunion. Both Chrises made appearances on that program and there seemed to be no animosity among those who were present. (David Cassidy was unavailable to appear, however.)

Brady Bunch - Final Episode The final first-run episode of The Brady Bunch aired 40 years ago today: Friday, March 8, 1974. It was the 116th installment of the show. Robert Reed (who played father Mike Brady) thought the script was so bad he refused to appear in the episode. Here's the plot: The two youngest Brady kids come up with separate ideas to make a fortune. Bobby acquires a case of hair tonic from a mail-order company and tries to sell the stuff door-to-door at $2 a bottle. Cindy intends to breed rabbits. Bobby has no luck as a salesman. Oldest brother Greg--who is about to graduate from high school--takes pity on Bobby and buys a bottle of the tonic. When he uses it, however, his hair turns a ghastly shade of bright orange! Five shampoos only serve to make Greg's hair even more hideous. Eventually a dye job at Carol Brady's favorite beauty parlor restores Greg's hair to its normal shade of black just in time for his big night where he graduates with honors. (Mike is noticeably absent when the family returns home from the ceremony. He is said to be out of town on business.) Meanwhile, Cindy's rabbit-breeding efforts are in vain because she discovers she has only male rabbits. When Bobby tries to pour his unsold tonic down a drain, he accidentally spills some of it on Cindy's rabbits. Bobby and Cindy agree to make the best of the situation by selling orange rabbits. By the 1973-74 season, The Brady Bunch was in severe decline. The kids were all over 12 years old and the show's original premise of two families merging into one was long gone. In an attempt to appeal to a younger demographic, Robbie Rist was brought in as Cousin Oliver for the final six shows. It didn't work. NBC's Sanford and Son was clobbering The Brady Bunch in the ratings so ABC pulled the plug. The last rerun aired on ABC on August 30, 1974. Still, the remarkable cult following of The Brady Bunch was strong enough to garner three failed reincarnations: The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, The Brady Brides, and The Bradys. A 1988 Brady-based made-for-TV Christmas movie drew enormous ratings.

First Goalie Mask - 1929 In 1929 Clint Benedict of the Montreal Maroons became the first goalie to wear a mask in a National Hockey League game. Benedict had suffered a broken nose in a previous game. To continue playing, Benedict commissioned a Boston leather goods company to make an experimental mask for him. The novelty didn't last very long--just one game. Benedict said the contraption obscured his view on low shots. New York Ranger goalie Charlie Rayner wore a partial mask for a few games in 1947 to protect a broken jaw, but he too complained of impaired vision and discarded it. Another dozen years would pass before NHL goalie Jacques Plante ushered in the modern goalie mask in 1959.

Marion Parker Murder - 1927 Fair warning: This story is unsettling. One of the most brutal crimes in American history was the kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old schoolgirl Marion Parker. On Thursday, December 15, 1927 a young man appeared at Mount Vernon Junior High School in Los Angeles claiming to be an associate of Perry Parker, a prominent local banker. The man coolly told the school's registrar that the banker had been seriously injured in a car accident and had requested to speak to his daughter. There were actually twin Parker sisters enrolled in the school--Marion and Marjorie. By chance the registrar fetched Marion who rode off with the man. He was later identified as 19-year-old William Edward Hickman. The Parker family became alarmed when Marion did not return from school. Shortly thereafter they received a ransom note and phone calls from the kidnapper asking for $1500 in gold certificates in exchange for Marion's safe return. One attempt by Marion's father to pay the ransom was thwarted when Hickman spotted police detectives lurking nearby. Another meeting time was secretly arranged by Hickman and Marion's father on December 17 where the money was given to a man in a parked car. Perry Parker saw his daughter wrapped in a blanket slumped in the back seat with her eyes open. At gunpoint the ransom was paid and the driver pushed the girl onto the street and drove away. Marion's father was horrified to find that his daughter was dead. Her eyelids had been sewn open to give the illusion that she was alive. Worse, her head had been severed, her arms and legs had been cut off and she had been disemboweled. (The missing limbs were found the next day in a city park.) The ghastly crime spawned the largest manhunt in southern California's history, one that included 20,000 volunteers. A reward of $100,000 was offered for the capture of the culprit. Several clues, including the discovery of the stolen car used on the night of the money exchange, led to Hickman being named as the key suspect. He was eventually arrested in Echo, OR after spending some of the gold certificates there. Hickman had been a former employee at Parker's bank and had been fired for embezzlement in a forged check scam. He served prison time for the crime. The fingerprint records from the embezzlement charge were used to match those found on the stolen car from the kidnapping. Hickman willingly told police in graphic detail that he had decided to kill Marion because she had discovered his name. She had only been dead about 12 hours before the money exchange. Hickman said he had choked her with a towel to make her unconscious and then began his dismemberment while she was still alive. Hickman--who said he intended to use the $1500 to pay his tuition to attend a bible college!--hoped to avoid the gallows by claiming insanity. He was one of the first defendants in California to try that ploy after it had become an acceptable legal defense. It failed when a fellow prisoner claimed Hickman had asked his advice on how to appear crazy. A jury rejected Hickman's insanity defense in February 1928. Hickman was executed at San Quentin Prison eight months later on October 19. His hand-written confession is on display at the Los Angeles Police Museum. Marion Parker's ghost is said to occupy her former house.

Risque Partridge Family Scenes A few years ago I posted a clip from The Brady Bunch that was seemingly okay when it aired in November 1972, but it has since been deleted from syndicated prints. (The scene involved Bobby and Cindy on their way to their new neighbors' skinny dipping pool party! Alice stops them, thankfully!) Similarly, here are assorted scenes from the fortieth episode of The Partridge Family, titled Home Is Where The Heart Was. It first aired on January 7, 1972. The plot centers around the two youngest Partridge kids deciding to run away from home after being scolded. The first 3-1/2 minutes are benign, but there's absolutely no way a TV network today would approve of the scenes in the following minute. Wow! Nudity and minors looking at porn on The Partridge Family! I must have missed this episode when I was a kid--or maybe it didn't mean anything to me at the time.
