Vanishing TV Character - John Burns of Taxi First airing in 1978, the ABC sitcom Taxi was an instant hit because of its clever writing and superb cast. In the pilot episode, a naive and somewhat dopey student named John Burns arrives in New York City and ends up in the Sunshine Cab building because he doesn't have a small bill to pay for his fare and main character Alex Reiger can't make change for a $50 note. By the end of that first episode, Burns has joined the rest of the gang as a cab driver. Randall Carver played Burns. Burns was by far the weakest character in the show's regular cast. Naivete was the key personality trait of Burns, but it was also the hallmark of Tony Banta (played by Tony Danza), an aspiring but largely unsuccessful pro boxer who made his living as a cabbie. Banta's and Burns' lines were so similar that they became almost interchangeable. A mid-season plot development in which Burns marries a girl after just one date failed to make his character stand out. At the end of the first season, John Burns just disappeared from the cast. What happened to him? Who knows? Not only was Burns' absence never explained, he was never mentioned again during the remainder of the series' successful run. Carver himself only had a handful of TV gigs in his post-Taxi acting career. Carver was essentially replaced in the Taxi cast by Christopher Lloyd whose burnt-out hippie character Reverend Jim Ignatowski was immensely popular. Lloyd won two Emmys for best supporting actor in a comedy series.

Harold Lloyd Bomb Mishap - 1919 On August 24, 1919, ascending silent movie comedian Harold Lloyd arrived at Pathe Studios to begin a publicity campaign to celebrate his new contract. He was posing for some publicity stills--unaware that such a seemingly benign activity was about to dramatically change his life. In one posed shot Lloyd was supposed to light a prop bomb with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. (The image supposedly played up Lloyd's typical devil-may-care attitude in his films.) Unbeknownst to anyone in the studio, some actual bombs from another film--which had been rejected for being too dangerous--had been placed in a box among some dummy bombs. The photographer innocently handed Lloyd one of the live bombs. When the fuse was lit, Lloyd sensed something was mildly wrong because it produced excessive smoke that would surely ruin any photographs. Just as Lloyd discarded the bomb on a nearby table, it exploded. Miraculously Lloyd was not killed as the blast ripped open a a 16-foot swath in the room. Nevertheless, Lloyd suffered numerous facial injuries and temporarily lost his eyesight. Only when extreme pain set in did Lloyd become aware that his right thumb and forefinger had been severed. He spent six weeks in a hospital recovering. He was overwhelmed by the number of fan letters which he said helped him overcome his depression about the accident. In all his subsequent films Lloyd wore a special prosthetic device concealed within a white glove to make it look like his right hand was absolutely normal. Lloyd did not want to dwell on his injury as he did not want moviegoers to watch his films due to pity. Lloyd continued to engage in very active physical comedy routines despite the handicap. His famous building-climbing scene in Safety Last occurred after the bomb accident--making it all the more incredible. Some years ago I posted Lloyd's 1953 mystery guest appearance on What's My Line. His deformed hand can clearly be seen when he shakes hands with the WML panelists as he departs.

Harold Lloyd - Human Tackling Dummy From the hugely underappreciated silent film genius Harold Lloyd, here is a scene from his brilliant 1925 comedy The Freshman. In this flick Lloyd plays Harold Lamb. Lamb tries to become the most popular man on the Tate University campus by, among other things, trying out for the school's football team. He spectacularly fails. But after the team's tackling dummy falls apart, Tate's coach puts Harold to use as a human version. As in all his films, Lloyd performed his own stunts, so he is taking all the blows in this clips. Some of the football players abusing Harold are members of the Southern Cal pigskin squad.
