Movie Legends Jane Russell Jane Russell was born Ernestine Jane Geraldine Russell in Minn on June 21, 1921. She first became interested in drama in high school, and in 1940, was signed to a seven year contract by millionaire Howard Hughes, who arranged for her motion picture debut in The Outlaw (1943), a story about Billy the Kid that went to great lengths to showcase her voluptuous figure. Although the movie was completed in 1941, it was released for a limited showing two years later. There were problems with the censorship of the production code over the way her ample cleavage was displayed. When the movie was finally passed, it had a general release in 1946. Together with Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth, Russell personified the sensuously contoured sweater girl look and became a popular pin-up with Service men during World War II. She went on to perform in an assortment of roles, which included playing Calamity Jane in The Paleface (1948); Mike Delroy in Son of Paleface (1952), Gentlemen Marry Blondes,The Revolt of Mamie Stover, Fate is the Hunter and many more. Though her screen image was that of a sex goddess, her private life lacked the sensation and scandal that followed other actresses of the time, such as Lana Turner. Although in her autobiography, Jane admitted that she had survived two attempted rapes un-harmed, that her first marriage had been speckled with adultery and violence, and that she had been an alcoholic since she was a teenager. She also revealed that in addition to this, however, she was also a born-again Christian, which was one of the things that had helped her cope. Jane Russell currently lives on the Central Coast of California.

Early Muppet Commercials In the 60's, the most popular of Jim Henson's commercials was a series for the local Wilkins Coffee company in Washington, D.C., in which his Muppets were able to get away with a greater level of slapstick violence than might otherwise have been acceptable with human actors. The first seven-second commercial for Wilkins was an immediate hit and was syndicated and reshot by Henson for local coffee companies across the United States. He ultimately produced more than 300 coffee ads.

What Ever Happened to ....CATHERINE BACH, who played Daisy Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard from 1979 to 1985. Like many 1970s TV stars, Catherine found the movie offers, poster contracts, personal appearances and talk-show gigs slowly evaporating as her series faded from the public's memory. In the past several years, she has been involved in wildlife conservation and domestic violence issues. In 1994 she testified before Congress on behalf of the Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act. Because of the feature film with Jessica Simpson playing the role of Daisy Duke, Bach has been asked to make more personal appearances.

Bath School Disaster 1927 It might surprise you to learn that the worst act of school violence in American history happened way back on Wednesday, May 18, 1927 at the Bath Consolidated School in Bath Township, Michigan. The perpetrator was a school board official named Andrew Kehoe who was angered by a new tax levy. Kehoe planned his revenge for months, secretly hiding hundreds of pounds of explosives beneath the school. On the morning of May 18, 1927, Kehoe killed his wife and fire-bombed his farmhouse. As fire officials raced to the Kehoe farm, Kehoe drove to the school and ignited the hidden explosives. As rescuers and concerned parents arrived at the school, Kehoe then blew up his car, killing himself plus several others who had survived the initial explosion. Kehoe's grim total for the day: 45 people killed and 68 others wounded. Most of the fatalities were students between the ages of eight and 12.

Call Her Savage   1932 Clara Gordon Bow was born in Brooklyn, New York (1905). Her early life was marred by poverty, mental illness (her mother was schizophrenic) and violence. Her mother slit Clara's throat in a rage over her decision to pursue a film career. During the early 1920s, Clara won a magazine beauty contest which led to a successful screen test. Her film career spanned eleven years from 1922 to 1933. During that time, Bow made 56 films. In 1928, she was the highest paid screen actor making $35,000 per week. With her nasal tone and heavy Brooklyn accent, her career began to decline with the advent of sound. Bow's career was damaged further by several highly publicized lawsuits for alienation of affection. She was also plagued by mental health problems that lead to repeated institutionalization throughout the remainder of her life. She died of a heart attack at age 60 in West Hollywood. . .

Lynch Mob Violence A victim of a lynch mob dangles from a bridge, circa 1910. Between 1889 and 1941, there were at least 3,811 known cases of lynching in the United States. There was never any federal anti-lynching legislation passed because southern politicians saw lynching as a necessity to maintain order in their communities. Many of these acts of vigilantism were photographed and sold as souvenir postcards!

Forgotten Sitcom - Chicago Teddy Bears The Chicago Teddy Bears was a short-lived CBS sitcom that debuted as part of the network's fall lineup in 1971. The Prohibition-era comedy was set at Linc & Latzi's Speakeasy in Chicago. Dean Jones played Linc McCray. John Banner (from the recently cancelled Hogan's Heroes) was lovable Uncle Latzi, Linc's partner. Because The Chicago Teddy Bears was a sitcom, there was no overt mob-related violence shown on the screen. It was only vaguely referenced. The show was yanked after just 13 episodes due to poor ratings. Here's the opening sequence.
