1964 Fashions and Cars Frothy souffle textures revved up in shades of gold will get the attention of that Big Wheel in your life, according to this 1964 ad from the August Seventeen magazine. And it looks like the British Motor Corporation is willing to take that risk! And there is Ford Model Agency's model Colleen Corby in blue, wearing one of the vervy, vivid trio of sweaters to prove it! The guy double parked next to her doesn't stand a chance. Sigh. Such was the summer of '64.

1964 Hairstyles Here is the brunette Colleen Corby in the August 1964 issue of Seventeen magazine to remind us all of what a girl had to suffer before she could create her hairdo! Ouchie! Whether you used these brush hair rollers or orange juice cans for curlers, sleeping in these was a chore, not to mention a pain. Anything for beauty, right? But once you got the important stuff out of the way, like rolling up your hair, THEN you could concentrate on your chemistry homework and fidget with your slide rule, a portable mechanical analog computer. To sum it up, today we use handheld electronic calculators; But women STILL go to great lengths and pains for their hairstyles!

Billy West - Chaplin Impersonator Billy West (September 22, 1892 - July 21, 1975) was an actor, producer, and director of the silent film era. He is best known as a terrific Charlie Chaplin impersonator. Born Roy B. Weissburg in Russia, West adopted his professional name some time after emigrating to America. He appeared in many short films, first in Apartment No. 13 in 1912. In 1917 movie theaters couldn't get enough Charlie Chaplin comedies, and an enterprising producer hired West, who had been doing comic pantomimes on the vaudeville stage, to make imitation-Chaplin subjects to meet the demand. West, wearing the identical tramp costume and makeup, copied Chaplin's movements and gestures so accurately that modern audiences often mistake West for the genuine performer. Chaplin himself saw the Billy West company filming on a Hollywood street, and allegedly told West, 'You're a damned good imitator.' Some West comedies were later deceitfully re-released on the home-movie market as 'Charlie Chaplin' pictures. Most of the West comedies of 1917-18 resembled the Chaplin comedies of 1916-17, with Oliver Hardy approximating the villainy of Eric Campbell, and Leatrice Joy in the Edna Purviance ingenue role.

Addie Joss Benefit Game 1911 On July 24, 1911 the first 'all-star game' in MLB history took place at League Park in Cleveland. It predated the first official ASG by 22 years. The contest was a benefit game to raise money for the widow and two children of Cleveland pitcher Addie Joss, who had died of meningitis at age 31 three months earlier. Joss was a hugely popular and dominant pitcher whose death stunned the baseball world. The plan was to have a team of American League All-Stars face Joss' Indians. The idea was popular with the players but not so with AL president Ban Johnson who was worried about the disruption of the AL schedule. He threatened to fine any players who left their clubs to participate in the benefit game. In the end public pressure persuaded Johnson to withdraw his objection. The All-Stars, led by Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, and several other future Hall-of-Famers, won the game 5-3. More than $11,000 was raised for the Joss family. Box seats that normally cost $1 were sold by special subscription for $100 apiece.

KO Magazine KO Magazine ('The Knockout Boxing Magazine,' as it was billed) was a boxing publication that at one time rivalled The Ring, the longtime stately 'Bible of Boxing,' for readership. It first appeared in 1980 as a monthly publication when pro boxing was experiencing a renaissance. KO quickly captured the attention of boxing fans with its well written stories, lengthy interviews--and especially its color centerfolds of prominent fighters. Its annual award issue was often filled with laugh-provoking absurdities. (One such kudo targetting TV's irritating boxing announcers was the Howard Cosell Talks A Lot But Says Nothing Award. The shortest TV fight of the year was given the Don't Get Up To Get A Beer Award.) Steve Farhood, who now writes excellent boxing pieces for Sports Illustrated, got his start at KO. KO eventually became a victim of boxing's declining popularity. It was eventually acquired by The Ring and absorbed into the latter. The last distinct issue of KO was published in 2006. Heavyweight champion Larry Holmes is shown on the cover of this issue from 1982.

The 51st State of America-Jefferson--almost In October 1941, the mayor of Port Orford, Oregon, Gilbert Gable, announced that the Oregon counties of Curry, Josephine, Jackson, and Klamath should join with the California counties of Del Norte, Siskiyou, and Modoc to form a new state, later named Jefferson. The first blow was the death of Mayor Gable on December 2, followed five days later by the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7. Secessionists focused their efforts on the war effort, which crippled the movement

1963 Teens In The News What? Look at that skinny kid named Steve Spielberg. If only he had tried a little harder he could have made something of himself. LOL And we all know that 16-year-old pianist Andre Watts made musical history right out the gate! Amazingly, 14-year-old Francine Fox earned an Olympic silver medal one year later in Women's Kayak Doubles! At the 1964 Olympic Summer games in Tokyo, Francine Fox and Gloria Perrier paddled to a silver medal, trailing a German pair by two seconds. The pairing was interesting for the disparity in ages, as, in 1964, Fox was a 15-year-old high school student, while Perrier was 20 years older. I couldn't find the other teen in the news singer Nancy Hawk in Google, but these vintage Seventeen magazines have lots of fun surprises to offer!
