Ruth Etting This Photo of Ruth Etting was taken by Alfred Cheney Johnston, the official photographer of the Ziegfeld Follies and was taken in 1923. Ruth Etting (November 23, 1896 – September 24, 1978) was an American singing star of the 1930s, who had over sixty hit recordings . . . as well as a quite colorful life: In 1937 she fell in love with her pianist, Myrl Alderman, who was consequently shot by her husband, Moe Snyder — but survived. Snyder was jailed for the assault, and Etting divorced him on November 30, 1937. She married Alderman in December 1938, but the scandal effectively ended her career. . . today, she would just be MORE famous . .

ETTA JAMES     AT LAST       2007 Etta James taped live at the Playboy Jazz Fest 2007. She was born Jamesetta Hawkins on January 25, 1938, and became an American blues, soul, R&B, and jazz singer and songwriter. In the 1950s and 60s, she had her biggest success as a blues and R&B singer. She is best known for her 1961 ballad "At Last", which has been classified as a "timeless classic" and has been featured in many movies and television commercials since its release. She's now sixty-nine and can still belt out a song better than most.

The Hindenberg Disaster 1937 On May 10, 1937, in Lakehurst, NJ, thirty-five persons died and scores of others were injured as the Hindenberg dirigible exploded three hundred feet over the landing field at the end of her first voyage of the season from Europe. A terrific burst of flame engulfed the stern of the ship and spread with the rapidity of lightning to the bow. The inferno of blazing hydrogen gas cremated all living beings in its path, as the twisted skeleton of the balloon settled quickly to the ground. Rescue crews braved death to save sixty-three persons, some of them horribly burned.

Charlie Chaplin Grave Robbery On Christmas Day 1977, Charlie Chaplin died at the age of 88 at his estate in Vevey, Switzerland. He was buried in a local cemetery. Sixty-eight days later, on March 3, 1978, Chaplin's coffin was disinterred by grave robbers. Shortly thereafter Chaplin's family began receiving calls from a man demanding $600,000 for the return of Chaplin's remains. Mrs. Chaplin had no intention of paying any ransom, but she kept in contact with the criminals so the police could hunt them down. Eventually they were nabbed 11 weeks after the crime. The culprits had reburied Chaplin's coffin in a corn field. Chaplin's coffin was reinterred in its original burial place--under six feet of concrete to deter further grave-robbing attempts. The criminals, recent refugees from eastern Europe, were convicted of 'disturbing the peace of the dead.'

Loch Ness Monster Photo 1934 Although reports of a strange aquatic creature inhabiting Scotland's Loch Ness have been around since the seventh century A.D., the first purported photo of 'Nessie' did not appear until this image was published in the Daily Mail on April 21, 1934. It became known as the 'surgeon's photo' because the picture was sent to the newspaper by Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson, a gynecologist, who insisted on anonymity. Sixty years later the photo was revealed to be a hoax. The image was created with a submerged toy submarine and a head and neck sculpted of plastic wood (a material commonly used in model construction). Sculptor Christian Spurling made the creation at the request of Marmaduke Wetherell, a big-game hunter who had been mocked by the Daily Mail. Wetherell used Dr. Wilson as a go-between to get the hoax published in the newspaper.

Fred Snodgrass Obituary Below is a 1974 New York Times obituary for baseball player Fred Snodgrass. Snodgrass was the New York Giants' usually sure-handed center fielder. But during the deciding game of the 1912 World Series versus the Boston Red Sox, Snodgrass dropped a routine fly ball that led to a Red Sox comeback victory. Sixty-two years later, that error was still paramount in baseball fans' minds.
