Esther Williams 1921-2013 Esther Williams, the swimming champion turned actress who starred in glittering and aquatic Technicolor musicals of the 1940s and 1950s, has died. She was 91. Williams's died early on June 6, 2013 in her sleep, according to her longtime publicist Harlan Boll. Following in the footsteps of Sonja Henie, who went from skating champion to movie star, Williams became one of Hollywood's biggest moneymakers, appearing in spectacular swimsuit numbers that capitalized on her wholesome beauty and perfect figure. Such films as "Easy to Wed," "Neptune's Daughter," and "Dangerous When Wet" followed the same formula: romance, music, a bit of comedy and a flimsy plot that provided excuses to get Esther into the water. The extravaganzas dazzled a second generation via television and the compilation films "That's Entertainment." Williams' co-stars included the pick of the MGM contract list, including Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Red Skelton, Ricardo Montalban and Howard Keel. When hard times signaled the end of big studios and costly musicals in the mid-'50s, Williams tried non-swimming roles with little success. After her 1962 marriage to Fernando Lamas, her co-star in "Dangerous When Wet," she retired from public life. She explained in a 1984 interview: "A really terrific guy comes along and says, 'I wish you'd stay home and be my wife,' and that's the most logical thing in the world for a Latin. And I loved being a Latin wife -- you get treated very well. There's a lot of attention in return for that sacrifice."

The Rat Pack What a night in entertainment history. The Count Basie Band performed and Johnny Carson hosted. It was a closed circuit feed to movie theaters as a fundraiser for the Dismas House, the first fully functioning halfway house.

Why Frank Sinatra is the Chairman of the Board Frank Sinatra was frustrated with his record company in 1960, so he formed his own label, Reprise Records. Many of his buddies (Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr.) released records on Reprise, which is why they often referred to Frank as the Chairman of the Board.

Troubled Life of James Stacy Actor James Stacy first gained fame as Fred, a peripheral college-age character on The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, from 1958 through 1965. He became well known for the Bonanza-like western series Lancer, portraying hot-headed eldest son Johnny Lancer from 1968 to 1970. Stacy was involved in a major motorcycle mishap in November 1973. A drunk driver named Carter Gordon rammed his car into Stacy's motorbike on a Los Angeles road, killing Stacy's passenger (actress/girlfriend Claire Cox) and seriously injuring the actor. Stacy lost his left arm and leg. Stacy's ex-wife (Connie Stevens) organized a lavish benefit to help offset his medical and rehabilitation costs. Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand both performed at the function which raised $118,000. Stacy later won a seven-figure judgment against the Chopping Block Bar, a Beverly Hills tavern that had served the drunk driver. For a while Stacy returned to acting in roles specially designed to showcase his disability, such as playing a double-amputee Vietnam War veteran in the made-for-TV movie Just a Little Inconvenience. He also appeared on Highway to Heaven. However, Stacy became a pariah in 1995 when he pleaded no contest to molesting an 11-year-old neighbor girl in California. He fled to Hawaii to avoid sentencing and unsuccessfully tried to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff. Stacy likely would have been given no jail time for his crime based on his disability, but his post-arrest behavior and reports of him stalking two other young girls eventually got him a six-year prison sentence. Stacy died suddenly in 2016 in his doctor's office from anaphylactic shock after he had a severely adverse reaction to an injection of antibiotics. Stacy was 79 years old.
