Froggy - Our Gang Billy (Froggy) Laughlin was added to the Our Gang cast in 1940 after an MGM executive heard him do a Popeye imitation at a movie theater. From 1940 through the end of the series in 1944 Laughlin played the cross-eyed, bespectacled Froggy, a character who spoke in a croaky voice. (Many Our Gang fans still mistakenly assume that was Laughlin's true voice!) Laughlin was tragically killed on August 31, 1948 in La Puente, CA. While delivering newspapers on a motor scooter with a friend, the pair made an unsafe U-turn and were struck by a truck whose driver had no time to react. Laughlin's friend suffered only minor injuries in the mishap. Laughlin was just 16 years old.

Mysterious Life of Rudolf Hess One of the strangest stories of the Second World War was the bizarre flight of Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, who unexpectedly parachuted into Scotland on May 10, 1941 on a mysterious mission, apparently undertaken on his own. (This photo shows the wreckage of his plane.) The details of Hess' mission are still shrouded in mystery; the British government will not release its official documents until 2016. Historians tend to believe that Hess boldly 'dropped in' on Britain to negotiate a separate peace with the western Allies so Nazi Germany would not have to fight a two-front war. (Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union would begin six weeks later.) Hess was promptly captured by locals and imprisoned for the remainder of the war. An enraged Hitler ordered that Hess be shot on sight if he ever again set foot in Germany. The British believed Hess was mad. His initial behavior at the Nuremburg Trials in 1946 seems to confirm this: Hess constantly counted on his fingers and laughed for no apparent reason. He claimed no knowledge of his days in Nazi Germany. His antics so unnerved fellow defendant Hermann Goring that Goring asked not to be seated beside Hess in the prisoners' box. Later in the tral, Hess' sanity seemed to return. Hess and six others were given life sentences, to be served in Spandau Prison in West Berlin. By 1966 the other six prisoners had been released. As Hess aged, the western Allies repeatedly asked for Hess to be released on humanitarian grounds. The Soviet Union always vetoed the request. Hess was the only prisoner at Spandau for 21 years until his curious death on August 17, 1987. He was found hanging in a garden house, strangled by an electrical wire. It was ruled a suicide. Family members doubted the accuracy of the report because by 1987 the 93-year-old Hess was so enfeebled that he could no longer tie his own shoes. Further conspiracy theories state that the man in Spandau Prison was not even Hess at all, but in fact a double. Spandau Prison was demolished after Hess' death so it would not become a shrine for Nazi sympathizers.

1912 British Olympic Womens Swim Team These four swimmers represented Great Britain at the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. They won the gold medal in the 4 x 100 relay. My research says they are Belle Moore, Jennie Fletcher, Annie Speirs, and Irene Steer, although I don't know which one is which. (I don't know who the dour lady in the middle is. A chaperon or coach, perhaps? She looks like a million laughs.) Women's swimming made its debut in these 1912 Olympics. The British team's winning time was five minutes, 52.8 seconds. By comparison, the gold-medal-winning time of the Australian team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics was three minutes, 52.69 seconds--more than two full minutes ahead of the 1912 pace. The entire 1912 Olympic swimming program was contested in just one day.

Ron Palillo Actor Ron Palillo is best known for his role as the timid, dorkish Arnold Horshack on the 1970s sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter. Palillo was born on April 2, 1949, in Cheshire, CT. He became interested in acting at an early age. By age 14, Palillo had started a profitable summer theater enterprise in his hometown. After high school, Palillo attended the University of Connecticut where he majored in drama. After graduation, Palillo took a job with a touring Shakepeare company. Palillo later moved to New York City and acquired a role in the successful off-Broadway play Hot-L Baltimore with which he stayed for over a year. Palillo's stage success led to his role as Horshack on Welcome Back, Kotter in 1975. Although he was playing the part of a high school student, Palillo was 26 years old when the show debuted. In contrast, teacher Gabe Kotter (played by Gabe Kaplan) was only 30. The Horshack character is fondly remembered for his odd, nasal, hyena-like laugh and his childish way of yelling 'Oh! Oh! Oh!' whenever he raised his hand to answer a question. When the sitcom was axed in 1979, Palillo found it difficult to obtain new acting roles. To distance himself form the Horshack character, he had a nose job and a chin job. Palillo did make onetime appearances in a few TV shows such as Love Boat, Cagney and Lacey, and The A-Team, but he has definitely faded from the limelight. One website, Washed Up Celebrities, claims Palillo will talk to anyone for a $20 fee.

1962 Easter Church Etiquette For Teens From Seventeen magazine March 1962. An Easter tutorial about attending church. Just amazing. What didn't the vintage Seventeen magazine's cover? Who talks about this stuff today? It's not even politically correct to say you even GO to church today! There's some useful material here if you look past gloves and stockings being necessary. LOL My parents stopped letting me bring a friend with us to church because all we did was giggle. Kids. We'd just look at each other and start to laugh. I think it was because we knew we weren't supposed to laugh in church, but that made it harder NOT to. I like the part about preparing for the collection ahead of time. I remember all those people who held up the basket and made jingling racket while searching their pockets for coins. Another thing about being prepared, you won't accidentally give a ten dollar bill instead of the miserly one dollar you actually MEANT to give. LOL
