Ann Bancroft Born as Anna Maria Italiano in the Bronx in 1931, Anne Bancroft didn't quite fall into the category of a 'classic' actress. She didn't break into films until 1952. But she appeared on screen with Marilyn Monroe, Richard Widmark, Cornel Wilde, Susan Hayward, and Victor Mature. After appearing in her first film, but not really finding the roles she wanted, she returned to New York and the stage, finding success, and a Tony award opposite Henry Fonda in 'Two For the Seesaw' (1958). The following year she appeared in the stage version of 'The Miracle Worker', and eventually returned to Hollywood in 1962, starring with Patty Duke in the film adaptation of the play, and winning a Best Actress Oscar with her first nomination. She was on a roll throughout the 60's, including a second Best Actress Oscar nomination for 'The Pumpkin Eater' (1964), then '7 Women' (1966), and finally her famous role as Mrs. Robinson in 'The Graduate' (1967), resulting in another Oscar nomination and a lifetime association with the part. She was nominated five times for Best Actress. Ann was married to the great comedy director Mel Brooks since 1964, and worked with him many times. She was still a very young 73 years old when she passed away on June 6, 2005, and is missed by so many of us.

New York City Bike Messengers I only put this up for people that went to NYC to jar their memory.When they crossed the street, they stopped to let by, what they thought was some nut ready to hit them. 1st way to spot a tourist,and afterwards they probally saw something they thought wasn't possible on a bike!Because you threw their timing off.When in fact they have your walking pace timed for an opening between your legs if they could fit!My heroes! In my early 20's I road raced hoping for a career,found out I was average.In my late 20's I lived across the river in Bayonne took my bike over on the commuter ferry for a job interview for messenger.So before I went I fueled up (too much) to "show em' my stuff!" Never made it;Good thing because you need total focus and concentration.Besides playing & listining to music and riding like this. Nothing has given me this rush of adrenaline and dopamine.A silver medal in the olympics was won by a messenger,they mainly use track bikes with no brakes,hold on to cabs, cabbies don't mind. For that slingshot effect.And when I found out in the 80's they could make as much as $800.00 a wk. I hopped on the ferry.

Silent Film Night Before Christmas TOM EDISON This is for the real old timers.I went to his museum in West Orange N.J. in the early 60's and one of his actual former employees gave the tour!It's one thing I want to revisit. I actually heard Mary Had A Little Lamb.The 1st recording played back; with Edisons voice which led to the 1st phonograph.The museum is now run by the U.S.National Park System.

Does This Remind You of any Rock Bands We Know Rock stars need beef. They can play forever with red meat and groupies. Here's a funny Public Sevice spot from the United Kingdom about how much energy meat protein provides.

Greta Garbo laughs in Ninotchka 1939 My favourite scene from one of the many great movies that Ernst Lubitsch directed. One of the reasons why I love all films! Greta Garbo plays this tough, cold, extremely serious Russian who ends up being a lovely, shiny, funny woman, full of love and full of life. Starring beautiful Greta Garbo and the great Melvyn Douglas.

1924 Olympic Hockey Tournament The inaugural Winter Olympic Games in Chamonix, France in 1924 featured a hockey tournament that was far from competitive. The two North American teams handily crushed all European opposition. The eight-team event had Canada in one four-team pool and the United States in the other. The Canadians, comprised of amateur players solely from Toronto, won their first three games by ridiculous scores of 30-0, 33-0, and 22-0 versus Czecholslovakia, Switzerland, and Sweden respectively. The Americans were having an equally easy time vanquishing Belgium, France and Great Britain by a combined score of 65-0. In the semifinals Canada thumped Great Britain 19-2 while the United States whipped Sweden 20-0. Canada beat the US 6-1 in the gold-medal match. None of the champion Canadians ever played pro hockey. Canada's performance was so daunting that at the 1928 Winter Olympics, the Canadians were awarded an automatic bye to the finals while the other 10 teams battled each other to see which nation would get the honor of being pummelled. Switzerland emerged from the pack as the challenger--and promptly lost 11-0 to a team wholly comprised of students from the University of Toronto.

Bobby Thomsons Home Run The single most dramatic moment in American sports history: Bobby Thomson's home run that won the 1951 National League pennant for the New York Giants. The Giants had trailed the Brooklyn Dodgers by 13.5 games in August, but they won 38 of their last 44 games to finish tied with the Dodgers at the end of the season. A three-game playoff was needed to settle matters. The Giants and Dodgers split the first two games. The Dodgers were leading the deciding game 4-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth. The Giants scored a run and had two men on base with one out. Bobby Thomson came to bat...
