Four British Kings in One Photo This 1908 photograph is remarkable: Pictured are four British kings! On the far right is Edward VII, the reigning monarch at the time. At the far left is his his son, who would become George V in 1910. The two boys in the middle are Edward's grandsons who themselves would both become kings. The future Edward VIII is at the back. His brother, the future George VI, stands in front of him. The photo was taken by Queen Alexandra (the wife of Edward VII). It was published in a Christmas collection that was sold for charity.

Only Film Clip of Houdini Funeral On November 4,1926 Harry Houdini was buried in New York at Machphela Cemetery. 2,000 mourners attended. The short black and white film clip is as enigmatic as the man himself. He was interred in one of his own stunt coffins at age 52.

Rock n Rollen Rollen Frederick Stewart, also known as Rock 'n' Rollen and Rainbow Man, was a fixture in American sports culture for about a decade. He became famous for wearing a rainbow-colored afro-style wig and, later, for holding up signs reading "John 3:16" at sporting events around the United States and overseas in the 1970s and 1980s. Stewart, a born-again Christian, was determined to "get the message out" via television. He figured televised sporting events provided the best opportunities. Stewart would strategically position himself for key shots of plays or athletes. Stewart's first major appearance was at the 1977 NBA Finals where he seemed to constantly be on camera. By the time of the 1979 MLB All-Star Game, broadcasters were actively trying to avoid showing him. Undaunted, Stewart appeared behind NFL goalposts, near Olympic medal stands, and even at the Augusta National Golf Club. At the 1982 Indianapolis 500, he was behind the pits of race winner Gordon Johncock. Stewart's fame led to a Budweiser beer commercial and a Saturday Night Live parody sketch. Stewart was briefly jailed by Moscow police at the 1980 Summer Olympics for wearing a red, white, and blue afro wig. By the mid-1980s Stewart's began exhibiting irrational behavior. In the late 1980s, he began a string of stink bomb attacks. His targets included the Orange County Register, the Trinity Broadcasting Network, and a Christian bookstore. The stated intent of an attempted attack at the American Music Awards was to show the public that "God thinks this stinks." Stewart is currently serving three consecutive life sentences for a orchestrating a hostage-taking and attempted kidnapping at a California hotel in 1992. Reportedly, Stewart believed that the Rapture was due to arrive in six days. During the standoff, he threatened to shoot at airplanes taking off from nearby Los Angeles International Airport and covered his hotel room windows with "John 3:16" placards. His next parole hearing is in 2017.

Viktor Tikhonov - USSR Hockey Coach One of the most familiar faces of Soviet Union hockey was the dour puss of coach Viktor Tikhonov who ran the Central Red Army club team and the Soviet National team with an iron fist and almost unchecked success for 20 years. Tikhonov was born on June 4, 1930. As a player, Tikhonov was a defenceman with the Soviet Air Force and Dynamo Moscow clubs, but he wasn't well known internationally until he became the head coach of both the Central Red Army team and the Soviet Union's national team in 1977. At one point Red Army won 13 consecutive Soviet Elite League titles--which isn't all that surprising considering Tikhonov had the authority of a Red Army general and could immediately draft any player into the armed forces if he showed promise. The USSR won eight IIHF world titles under Tikhonov plus Olympic gold medals in 1984, 1988 and 1992. The USSR's national team also won the 1979 Challenge Cup and 1981 Canada Cup. Tikhonov had power over his players' lives and used it to control every aspect of his team. They routinely trained together for 50 weeks per year while living in army barracks. Canadian hockey great Phil Esposito said the so-called Soviet "amateurs" were more professional than NHL players. Humorless and ruthless, Tikhonov was known for his dictatorial coaching style. He exercised control over his players' lives. His expected absolute obedience--or else. His players quietly called him "the last Stalinist." With tongue-in-cheek humor, western media often referred to Tikhonov as "Chuckles." Tikhonov constantly feared his players would defect if they ever got the slightest chance. Anyone he merely suspected of defecting would be left off teams planning to travel outside the Iron Curtain. In 1991, for instance, he cut Pavel Bure, Valeri Zelepukin, Evgeny Davydov, and Vladimir Konstantinov just before the 1991 Canada Cup. All of them had been drafted by NHL teams, and Tikhonov suspected they were flight risks. Even after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Tikhonov stayed on as the national team coach of Russia for a few more years, but the newer players rebelled against his harsh authoritarian ways. Tikhonov mellowed slighty before going into retirement in 1996. After his retirement, Tikhonov lobbied the Russian government for more attention and better financing for the national team. His grandson plays on the current Russian national squad. Tikhonov died in November 2014.

NHL Goalie Takes Puck in the Face - 1959 I posted this video in 2012 but I discovered its source was removed--so here it is again. From a 1959 Stanley Cup playoff game, Boston goalie Harry Lumley takes a backhand shot to the face from Toronto's Dick Duff. Lumley lost two teeth and was badly cut on the play. Men were men in 1959, though. The play continued as usual for about 30 seconds before Lumley froze the puck and headed to to Bruins' bench for "repairs." Lumley must have been a sight! Check out the horrified woman seated in the second row near the Boston bench: She covers her eyes!

Sailor in iconic photo passes at age 86 Glenn Edward McDuffie-He's the sailor in Alfred Eisenstaedt's iconic Life magazine photo grabbing and kissing a nurse in the middle of Times Square after finding out World War II was over. McDuffie died on March 9, but news of his death was reported Friday. He was positively identified as the sailor in the photo in 2007 after many men claimed it was them. According to his obituary, McDuffie joined the Navy in 1942 when he was 15 years old. The obituary said he found a friend to forge his mother's signature, saying he was old enough to serve. On August 14, 1945, McDuffie was part of Eisenstaedt's legendary photo.

Original Howdy Doody Puppet The Howdy Doody Show was one of the most iconic, popular, and enduring kids' programs ever. When it first aired in 1947, however, star marionette Howdy Doody looked far different than he did for most of the show's run. In this NBC publicity photo, Howdy is the puppet on the far right. Why the change? By 1948 the show had become so popular that merchandisers were clamoring to sell Howdy Doody paraphernalia. Macy's Department Store was especially eager to carry any and all Howdy Doody merchandise. This presented a major ownership problem: Buffalo Bob Smith had used the unmistakable Howdy Doody voice for years (beginning on the radio) and owned the rights to the character, but the puppet was created for TV by Frank Paris. No agreement could be worked out between Smith and Paris, so one day, about four hours before a live broadcast, Paris walked out of the NBC studio and took his puppet with him. The producers came up with a quick and brilliant gimmick to explain Howdy Doody's absence. Howdy had gone on a nation-wide road trip to campaign in the 1948 election! A large map of the USA showed viewers where Howdy had travelled during his absence from the show. Furthermore, it was announced that Howdy was undergoing plastic surgery to look better in his public appearances. This gave NBC's Velma Dawson plenty of time to create a totally different--but more familiar--Howdy Doody marionette that was used until the show ended in 1960. The new, more appealing Howdy Doody was an immediate hit. Apparently nobody missed Paris' original marionette too much. Smith himself declared it to be "the ugliest puppet imaginable."
