Man Catches Bullet Between His Teeth This clip is an excerpt from an old 50's TV program called 'You Asked For It', a popular human-interest show that originally aired on TV between 1950-59. On the show, viewers were asked to send in postcards describing something that they wanted to see on television, such as the reenactment of William Tell shooting an apple off his son's head. (1950 US National Archery Champion Stan Overby performed the feat, shooting an apple off his assistant's head.) Short film clips were also presented, with the selections based upon viewer requests. As a consequence, many of the clips were presented multiple times. Some of the more popular clips included a tour of the bizarre Winchester Mystery House and the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The program was named 'The Art Baker Show', after the series creator and host. In April 1951, the show's title was changed to 'You Asked For It'. Originally airing on the cash-strapped DuMont Network from December 1950 to December 1951, it moved to ABC, where it remained until the end of its original run in September 1959. The show was sponsored by Skippy peanut butter and Studebaker Automobiles. I remember watching this series as a kid, but if I'd seen this show it would have definitely stood out in my memory! No way did this man perform this 'feat', but it sure must have left kids wondering back then..he probably had the bullet already in his mouth and the officer was shooting blanks...duh..I mean..shooting a real bullet almost point blank into a man's face on live tv is going to be messy, to say the least..

Our Gang - The Champeen 1923 Here is an eight-minute excerpt from the silent era of the Our Gang comedies. This clip is from the 1923 film The Champeen. It was just the seventh Our Gang film ever made. Here's the plot: A policeman catches Sammy Morrison stealing $1 worth of apples. The cop threatens to send Sammy to jail unless he can come up with $1. Sammy comes up with the idea of exploiting the rivalry between Mickey Daniels and Jackie Davis (who are both smitten with pretty Mary Kornman) by staging a boxing match between the two amorous boys and charging admission. Though the film is dated, it has its funny moments! Boxing matches were featured in at least two other Our Gang comedies in the series' later years.

Phantom Tag Call - 1973 World Series It's Game #2 of the 1973 World Series. The game is tied 6-6 in the top of the tenth inning. The New York Mets have a runner (Bud Harrelson) at third base with one out. Felix Millan lofts a fly ball to Oakland's Joe Rudi in left field. Harrelson tries to score on the play. Catcher Ray Fosse catches Rudi's strong throw on one hop and attempts to apply a sweep tag on Harrelson who does not slide. Veteran NL umpire Augie Donatelli assumes an unusual position to make the call--and declares Harrelson out. You decide if the call was right. (The Mets eventually won the game 10-7 in 12 innings.)
