Charlie Chaplin The Pawnshop 1916 Here's a 4.5-minute clip from the Charlie Chaplin film, The Pawnshop (1916), in which Charlie portrays a hapless pawnshop employee. The final two minutes are the most noteworthy. They feature one of Chaplin's best sustained comedy bits: his examination of a customer's alarm clock.

2002 Breeders Cup Betting Scandal On October 26, 2002, Christopher Harn and two buddies masterminded one of the most talked about betting scandals ever. The annual Breeders Cup races are often called the Super Bowl of horse racing. Six races are run. The popular Pick Six wager requires a bettor to select the winners of all six races prior to the first race being run. The payoff can be enormous if anyone achieves the feat. As an employee of the computer company that handled off-track betting, Harn used his technical know-how to attempt to beat the system. On Breeders Cup day he placed a routine bet using a friend's off-track account. Then, after four races had been run, Harn took advantage of his knowledge of when the results were transmitted. Harn went to his office and altered his friend's original bet to give him the first four winners of the Pick Six. Then he 'boxed' the last two races, ensuring a winning ticket regardless of which horses happened to win the last two races. The payoff was an astounding $3 million. Unfortunately for Harn, the payoff was too rich for his own good. The bet was immediately flagged as suspicious because of the odd betting sequence and because too many longshots had won that day. Eventually investigators pried a confession out of Harn and his co-conspirators. They were convicted of fraud.

Female Bouncer on Whats My Line A rather lovely young lady, employed as a night club bouncer, was a contestant on What's My Line on August 24, 1958. There's no way I would have guessed her occupation!

McDonalds Monopoly Scandal 2001 Mathematicians knew something was very wrong with the Monopoly-themed contest at McDonald's restaurants in 2001. Against all odds, a hugely disproportionate number of big-prize winners were being claimed by residents of South Carolina, even though that state accounted for less than one percent of McDonald's sales nationally. An investigation was launched. It was quickly discovered that the game pieces for the contest were printed in South Carolina. Unscrupulous employees of the security company--who had been hired to ensure the game was on the level--had conspired with insiders at the printing company to illegally obtain the key Monopoly pieces for large prizes. Your eighth-grade math teacher was right: Probabilities and outcomes apply to the real world.

Caluccis Department - Failed Sitcom The premise for the 1973 CBS sitcom Calucci's Department seemed promising: James Coco starred as Joe Calucci, a supervisor of a state unemployment office in New York City. According to Total Television, Calucci "tried to manage a motley crew of nincompoops and deadbeats." Calucci also had a romantic interest with his secretary, Shirley Balukis, played by Candy Azzara. Unfortunately, Calucci's Department was slotted on Fridays at 8 p.m. This placed it directly against NBC's very popular Sanford and Son, so it had trouble establishing an audience. Calucci's Department was axed after just 11 episodes despite garnering generally favorable reviews. Here's part of the opening montage.
