Judy Garland Movie Debut 1929 Seven-year-old Frances Gumm (Judy Garland) and her two older sisters perform The Good Old Sunny South in the movie short 'The Big Revue' (1929). This is Judy's movie debut! That's little Judy saying 'Yes, sir!' throughout the number. Sorry for the poor sound quality; I hope you'll overlook that shortcoming because of the historical significance of this clip.

Walter Johnson One of my all-time favorite baseball players: Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators. The scouting report on Johnson's blazing fastball noted, 'You can't hit what you can't see.' Once Johnson pitched three complete-game shutouts in a single weekend. For years his lifetime total of 3,508 strikeouts seemed insurmountable. Johnson retired in 1927. It took nearly 50 years for another pitcher to reach 3,000 strikeouts. Johnson became a beloved baseball figure--largely because he had the misfortune to spend his entire career with the lowly Senators. In 1924, when Johnson finally got to pitch in a World Series at age 36, the public rejoiced when he won the seventh and decisive game to give Washington its only World Series triumph.

The Beatles  Hello Goodbye Hello Goodbye is a 1967 song. It was the Christmas single for 1967, and topped the charts in both the United States and Britain where it spent seven weeks at number one. The song also appeared on the British 'Magical Mystery Tour' EP, as well as the American Magical Mystery Tour LP, which was later adopted as the official UK version of the album. Though the songwriting credit is Lennon/McCartney, it was written only by Paul McCartney.

Sangria Seventies i love this photo . . it seems to capture the '70s Northern California culture . . the hair; the clothes; the round oak table; the funky old apartment and, of course, the giant bowl of sangria. . .

Listowel Arena Disaster 50th Anniversary Fifty years ago today, on Saturday morning, February 28, 1959, in a small Canadian town not far from where I live, a terrible tragedy occurred: The roof of the Listowel (Ontario) Arena collapsed due to a heavy accumulation of snow and inadequate construction. Seven peewee hockey players (aged 10, 11 and 12) and Listowel's recreation director were crushed to death by the debris while they were on the ice surface. A group of other young players preparing for their upcoming game in the arena's dressing rooms were completely unscathed. The arena was only four years old.

Jan and Dean  Baby Talk Jan Berry and Dean Torrence first became friends on the football team at L.A.'s University High, but Dean's first success came with Arnie Ginsburg (not the Boston DJ the duo scored a big doo-wop hit as Jan and Arnie with 1958's "Jennie Lee." That song, actually written about a stripper, gained Berry some friends in the business, including Herb Alpert and producer Lou Adler. Together with friend Torrence, who'd just returned from an Army stint, they developed a song called "Baby Talk." It was a smash, but it wasn't until 1963, with the release of the Four Seasons' inspired "Linda," that the Jan and Dean sound began to take shape. After meeting the Beach Boys on the L.A. scene, Jan befriended leader Brian Wilson, and thw two began work on what would become "Surf City." Inspired by the local scene and Wilson's very recent hits, "Surfin'" and "Surfin' Safari" -- and benefiting from Berry's amazing self-taught production skills, it went straight to Number One. The duo of Jan and Dean flourished well into the mid-sixties, weathering even the British Invasion. But on April 12, 1966, Berry's Stingray slammed into a parked gardener's truck (not at the site mentioned in "Dead Man's Curve," despite legend), and Jan entered a decade-long nightmare of physical recovery, drug abuse, and depression. By the mid-Seventies, amazingly, Berry could perform almost at normal, and the duo began an amazing comeback that lasted well into the mid-Eighties. Berry passed away in 2004.

Mark Spitz 1972 Olympics The hero of the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich was American Mark Spitz, who won seven gold medals in swimming and set seven world records in the process. Here is an IOC profile of the great Spitz. (His feats are being relegated to the history books because of the sensational exploits of Michael Phelps at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.)
