Happy Birthday Barbara Walters Barbara Jill Walters was born September 25, 1929. She is an American journalist, writer and media personality who has been a regular fixture on morning television shows (Today and The View), an evening news magazine (20/20), and on The ABC Evening News as the first female evening news anchor. Walters was first known as a popular TV morning news anchor for over 10 years on NBC's Today, where she worked with Hugh Downs and later hosts Frank McGee and Jim Hartz. Walters later spent over 20 years as co-host of ABC's newsmagazine 20/20. She was the first woman to co-anchor the network evening news, working with Harry Reasoner on The ABC Evening News. With all due respect to Ms Walters, I just couldn't help myself with this one.

Miss Jane Powell here at age 17 (her studio says 16), had her first pin-up photo shot taken. This was taken right after she was in HOLIDAY IN MEXICO in 1946. (PLOT "Ambassador Jeffrey Evans (Walter Pidgeon), a widower living in Mexico, has his hands full with his teenage daughter Christine (Jane Powell). Christine runs the entire household and tries to manage her father's private life as well. But love threatens to wreck all her carefully made plans: an earnest young classmate (Roddy McDowall) is hopelessly in love with her. . .Ambassador Evans is smitten with a beautiful singer (Ilona Massey). . .and poor Christine isn't sure where she fits in anymore! Top top it all off, Christine develops a crush on famed pianist Jose Iturbi, who is much older than she." TRIVIA: One of several films in which a young Fidel Castro appears as an extra, mostly in crowd scenes.

Apples Way intro Does anyone besides me even remember this show? It was supposed to be a modern version of The Waltons (which was also created by Earl Hamner). I do remember that Apple's Way was the butt of some comedians' jokes for being way too unrealistically wholesome.

Featured Member -Nbmike Hi everyone. My name is Michael “Nbmike” Cormier. I will be turning 44 yrs old this summer, so while I may not be as old as the trees, unicorns, and dinosaurs, I’m definitely older than Compact Discs, MP3 Players, and Plasma TV. I am a single dad to my beautiful daughter Rhiannon (She thinks she’s 14 going on 40, which makes me often feel like I’m 80 lol). Ever since I found this site in November, I have enjoyed the trivia and memories found here. The people here are top notch at providing info when your memory kind of escapes you. I want to thank you all for welcoming me so warmly the last few months, and a big thanks to Steve for creating such a great site. OK, a little about me. I was born here in Saint John, NB Canada in 1965. I grew up in a small community outside of Saint John called Grand Bay, and lived there until I moved to the big city,(lol ….big city for NB, population, 70000 or so) In 1984, I started working as a radio announcer in town doing weekend and swing shifts. The job lasted a couple of years, but started a lifelong love with musical trivia, or even trivia in general. It was there that I found out about such things as plagiarism (Brian Wilson can say it was unintentional, but SURFIN USA just sounds like Chuck Berry’s SWEET LITTLE SIXTEEN with new lyrics)! We also played vinyl records back in those days, so I kinda feel like a dinosaur sometimes. lol After leaving the radio announcing job, I became a jack of all trades, until nagging back problems left me unemployed in 1994, and now I concentrate on raising my child and trying to develop projects. I have always had an interest in writing comedy, and have written some musical parodies that have made a few people laugh on a few occasions. I’m not egotistical about my writing by any means, but I have a rule of thumb. If I’m not laughing when I write the lyrics, then I keep running scenarios through my mind until I find the funniest scenario to me. I figure if I don’t find my writing funny, then how is anybody else supposed to? My hometown has some Hollywood connections. Louis B Mayer’s family moved here from overseas when he was a small child, and he grew up here until he left for Massachusetts when in his late teens, Actor Walter Pidgeon was born and raised here, as well as Lyman Ward, who played Ferris Beuller’s father, and Donald Sutherland was born here, but moved to Nova Scotia with his family when he was a teen. One Hollywood story I have heard is when Walter Pidgeon screen tested for MGM, Louis B Mayer thought he was sucking up to him, and summoned him to his office, and told him in no uncertain terms, that if Walter thought of putting Saint John NB as his hometown was going to gain him favor in Mayer’s eyes, it wasn’t going to work. When he told Mr.Mayer that Saint John WAS his hometown, then they had a laugh together. I am desperately shy in real life, but online I come out of my shell usually. I love participating here, just wish I had more time to contribute. Raising a teenager is like studying for a long and hard exam. You hope you have all the right answers, and you spend every waking hour trying to prepare for what’s coming up, but deep in your heart, you know you’re just flying without a net and hoping for the best, but I wouldn’t trade her for the world. The funny thing is that twenty years ago, I never though I had what it takes to be a Dad. I look forward to meeting new members and continuing to engage in trivia challenges and sharing memories with all. Thanks again for such a warm welcome here.

Singer Teresa Brewer Makes 3  Passes today at 76 NEW YORK - Singer Teresa Brewer, who topped the charts in the 1950s with hits like "Till I Waltz Again with You," and performed with jazz legends Count Basie and Duke Ellington, died Wednesday. She was 76. This is a clip from her 1981 concert. Brewer died at her New Rochelle home of a neuromuscular disease, said family spokesman Bill Munroe. Her four daughters were at her bedside. Brewer had scores of hits in the 1950s and a burgeoning film career, but she pared down her public life to raise her children. She re-emerged a decade later to perform with jazz greats Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Wynton Marsalis.

Oct 22nd     Happy  65th Birthday  Annette Annette Funicello reminisces about her singing career and how the "Annette" sound was created. She announced in 1992 that she suffers from multiple sclerosis. She had kept her condition a secret for many years, but felt it necessary to go public to combat false rumors that her impaired carriage was the result of alcoholism. That same year, she was inducted as a Disney Legend. In 1993, she opened the Annette Funicello Fund for Neurological Disorders at the California Community Foundation. She is truly a beautiful and courageous lady, who will always be loved and admired by all of us.
