Budgie Budgie in 1971 along came one of my favorite tv series... Budgie. it was written by Keith Waterhouse,an starred Adam Faith as Ronald 'Budgie' Bird - a chirpy cocky cockney, just out of prison, and scraping a living on the edge of the law. Budgie was an eternal failure and every scam, and every attempt to make his fortune landed him further and further into trouble, either with the police, or with his untrustworthy sometime boss, the cynical Charlie Endell, a respectable club owner on the surface, and underworld villain below it.

Louella Parsons on Judy Garland i wish Louella Parsons "GOOD NEWS" from a 1949 MODERN SCREEN magazine had indeed been correct . . . she died twenty years later of an accidental overdose of barbiturates. . " WHAT IS really the matter with Judy Garland? That is the question hurled at me everywhere I go. All right, let's get at it. Judy is a nervous and frail little girl who suffers from a sensitiveness almost bordering on neurosis. It is her particular temperament to be either walking in the clouds with excitement or way down in the dumps with worry. The least thing to go wrong leaves her sleepless and shattered. She has never learned the philosophy of "taking it easy." Last year, when she was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, she got in the habit of taking sleeping pills -- too many of them -- to get the rest she had to have. I'm not revealing any secrets telling you that. It was printed at the time. But for a highly emotional and highly strung girl to completely abandon sedatives, as Judy attempted to do when she realized she was taking too many, puts a terrific strain on the nervous system. The trouble is, Judy does not take enough time to rest. The minute she starts feeling better she wants to go back to work. She cried like a baby when she learned she was not strong enough to make The Barkleys of Broadway with Fred Astaire so soon following The Pirate and Easter Parade. "I'm missing the greatest role of my career," she sobbed. With Judy -- each role is always the greatest. Sometimes I believe Judy's frail little form is packed with too much talent for her own good. She is an artist, and I mean ARTIST, at too many things. She sings wonderfully and dances almost as well. And as for her acting -- well, listen to what Joseph Schenk, one of the really big men of our industry and head of 20th Century Fox (not Judy's studio) has to say. I sat next to Joe the night we saw Easter Parade. He told me, "Judy Garland is one of the great artists of the screen. She can do anything. I consider her as fine an actress as she is a musical comedy star. There is no drama I wouldn't trust her with. She could play such drama as Seventh Heaven as sensitively as a Janet Gaynor or a Helen Mencken." And I agree with every word Joe said. I am happy to tell you as I report the Hollywood news this month that Judy is coming along wonderfully, resting and getting back the bloom of health. Soon we will have her back on the screen -- her long battle with old Devil Nerves behind her and forgotten."

Carsons Early Bloopers on Who Do You Trust A bit of classic Johnny Carson on his earlier show "Who Do You Trust" from 1959. These were live segments. When you're watching a live television show you never quite know what will happen. Unlike most 50's TV footage that exists on grainy kinescope film, this footage comes from early B&W quad videotape which is a rarity with any 50's show. This footage was featured on a program from 1983 called "Life's Most Embarrassing Moments" hosted by John Ritter.

Auchincloss Family Photo While born of the same mother, Jacqueline Bouvier and James Auchincloss had different fathers. Divorce and remarriage resulted in a blended Auchincloss and Bouvier family, and Jackie and young "Jamie" lived together at the Auchincloss family home in Newport, R.I., for a time. Jackie considered herself a big sister to Jamie and even had him carry her train at her 1953 marriage to JFK at the Auchincloss estate. Ten years later he would walk directly behind her in the funeral procession after having been entrusted to spend the previous couple of days shielding John Jr. and Caroline from the news of their fatherís death...

Charlie Chaplin Lita Grey Marriage 1924 Lita Grey, born in 1908, became Charlie Chaplin's second wife in 1924. Charlie was born in 1889. Do the math. She was 16 while Charlie was 35. Lita was pregnant at the time and the couple married in Mexico to avoid a scandal. (Chaplin could have been charged with statutory rape in California.) Grey had made Chaplin's acquaintance when she played a dancer in a dream sequence in The Kid (1921) when she was 13. The two had virtually nothing in common and divorced in 1927. Chaplin was ordered to pay a financial settlement of $600,000 plus another $100,000 in trust for each of the two children the marriage produced. It was a record divorce settlement at the time.

1905 Dawson City Nuggets One of the great sports stories of the twentieth century was the improbable challenge for the Stanley Cup made by the Dawson City Nuggets back in 1905. The Cup was still a challenge trophy at the time, and somehow a group of recreational hockey players from the distant Yukon Territory was granted permission by the Cup's trustees to play the powerful Ottawa Silver Seven for Lord Stanley's hardware in 1905. Now all they had to do was travel 4,400 miles to Ottawa for the best-of three series. The Nuggets made their way to the Canadian capital by bicycle, dog sled, boat, railroad, and on foot. They arrived in Ottawa exhausted just one day before the first game was scheduled. They promptly lost 9-2. The next game was even worse. The defending champs from Ottawa won 23-2. Frank McGee notched 14 goals for the winners.

Veteran Newsman Walter Cronkite Reported Gravely Ill There are reports that veteran newsman Walter Cronkite is gravely ill. The 92-year-old former anchor of "The CBS Evening News," who has been ailing for some time, has reportedly taken a turn for the worse, according to TVNewser and other online sites. CBS News spokesman Kevin Tedesco had no comment on Friday. Bob Schieffer said, "All of us are praying for the best, and our thoughts are with Walter's family." The host of CBS'"Face the Nation" and a longtime Cronkite colleague, Schieffer noted that he had no current news on Cronkite's condition. The face of CBS News for more than two decades, Cronkite was named "the most trusted man in America" in a 1972 "trust index" survey, and he ended each broadcast with the reassuring signoff, "And that's the way it is." He left the "Evening News" anchor desk in 1981, but after that kept a busy schedule both in journalistic and other activities. For 24 years, he served as onsite host for New Year's Day telecasts by the Vienna Philharmonic until ill health forced him to bow out earlier this year.

Worst MLB Team - 1916 Athletics The 1927 New York Yankees are usually considered by baseball history buffs to be the greatest MLB team ever assembled. But which team was the worst? My choice for the worst baseball team (of the 20th century, at least) goes to the pitiful 1916 Philadelphia Athletics. They finished at the bottom of the American League standings that year with an awful 36-117-1 record. What makes the A's horrendous showing so remarkable was that Philadelphia had won the American League in pennant in 1910, 1911, 1913 and 1914--and the World Series in three of those seasons. However, the A's were stunningly upset by the Boston Braves in the 1914 World Series. Miffed owner/manager Connie Mack quickly dismantled his superb team and attempted to restock it with castoffs and college hopefuls. The A's finished last seven years in a row before rebuilding their dynasty in the late 1920s. The 1916 Athletics are of particular interest to me because I'm a co-author of the book shown here: A's Bad As It Gets. (Blame my publisher for the punny title.) It is now available through McFarland Publishers or it can be purchased online via Amazon. Trust me: if you're a baseball fan you'll enjoy it! After the huge number of posts I've made on this website over the years (nearly 2,700) for everyone's enjoyment, I figure I'm entitled to one shameless, self-promoting commercial announcement.

Anissa Jones Anissa Jones was the first of a long line of child stars from the television era whose life spiralled downward after her acting career had ended. Jones first acted in a cereal commercial at age six in 1964. At age eight, in 1966, Jones was cast as Elizabeth (Buffy) Patterson-Davis in the sitcom Family Affair. Part of Buffy's persona were the amusing conversations she had with her doll, Mrs. Beasley. Mrs. Beasley dolls became popular toys. (Jones' tightly curled pigtails inspired Cindy Brady's similar hairdo on The Brady Bunch.) Family Affair went off the air in 1971 when Jones was 13. Jones commented she was glad the series ended so she no longer had to carry the doll. Although Jones was offered a teenage role in The Brian Keith Show, she turned it down to unsuccessfully seek movie roles. (In contrast, Jones' Family Affair co-star Johnny Whitaker worked regularly on television and in Disney movies for many years.) Jones enrolled in high school but dropped out before graduating. Her parents' nasty divorce cause a rift in her family. At one point Jones was working in a donut shop. When she turned 18 she was able to access her $180,000 in Family Affair earnings from a trust fund. Later that same year, on August 28, 1976, Jones died of a drug overdose at a house party. The coroner claimed it was one of the most severe overdoses he had ever encountered. Jones' brother also died of an overdose in 1984.
