Steven Truscott Case 1959 Canada's most famous criminal case of the 20th century revolved around the rape and murder of 12-year-old Lynne Harper near Clinton, Ontario in 1959. A schoolmate, 14-year-old Steven Truscott, stood trial, was convicted of murder, and sentenced to hang. The sentence was eventually reduced to life imprisonment. With some doubts lingering over the accuracy of Truscott's conviction, and sympathy because of his age, Truscott was eventually paroled from prison in 1969. He lived for many years in Guelph, Ontario under an assumed name. In 2000 he shed his alias and began to publicly clamor for a new trial. Truscott's conviction was eventually overturned in 2007 because of what the Ontario Court of Appeals perceived as "a miscarriage of justice," though the court did not formally declare him innocent. Truscott was also awarded a $6.5 million settlement by the Province of Ontario. Is Truscott a murderer? Polls generally show Canadians think he is innocent by a 3:1 ratio. However the Harper family, usually forgotten by the media and the Truscott advocates, is convinced of Truscott's guilt. The victim's older brother has publicly called the payment to Truscott a travesty. The news of it seriously affected the health of Lynne's aged father. And little Lynne Harper remains 12 years old forever...

Magnificent Marble Machine Here's a unique and forgotten game show: The Magnificent Marble Machine! Hosted by Art James, the show ran for 11 months on NBC starting on July 7, 1975. Designed to take advantage of the pinball craze, contestants were paired with celebrity partners to solve word puzzles, which, by some bizarre logic, entitled the winners to play an oversized pinball machine for cash and prizes! If the ball hit a bumper the contestant won a prize. Hey, I liked the show, but I was 11 years old at the time.

South of Sunset - Forgotten Detective Show South of Sunset was a CBS detective show that lasted just one episode. Despite being heavily promoted by the network during its 1993 World Series coverage, South of Sunset was axed after its pilot aired on October 27, 1993. Some west coast affiliates never aired the show, preferring to stick with news coverage of the Malibu wildfires. South of Sunset drew an anemic 6.1 rating, believed to be the worst showing ever for a major network show's fall premiere. The detective show stared rocker Glen Frey as Los Angeles private eye Cody McMahon who partnered with and ex-thief named Ziggy Duane. Here's the opening of the only episode that ever aired on CBS.

Howard Cosell Loses His Toupee In one of sports broadcasting's nearly forgotten comical moments, ABC's Howard Cosell had his toupee knocked from his head in a post-boxing match melee. In happened on February 13, 1977 in Annapolis, MD. The scuffle occurred after a horrendous decision went against Scott LeDoux in a heavyweight bout versus Johnny Boudreaux at the infamously corrupt United States Boxing Championship tournament. Watch Cosell lose his headset--and his rug--at about 1:22 of this video clip.
