Vintage Multi Pistol 09 by Topper Toys 60s The 60's spy craze on TV and in the movies was a natural segway into the toy market. Manufacturers wasted no time putting out a line of toys capitalizing on the success of James Bond, The Man from Uncle, The Avenger's, Secret Agent Man and others. Topper Toys wasted no time either and quickly put out a line of spy toys to compete with the other manufacturers. This is the Multi-Pistol 09. Every Junior Espionage Agent had to have one, including me!

Sunset Boulevard   1950 Trailer to "Sunset Boulevard" directed by Billy Wilder, starring William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim, Cecil B. DeMille & Buster Keaton. Joe Gillis, an unsuccessful screenplay writer, escapes the finance men who are trying to reclaim his car by driving into the garage of an old mansion on Sunset Boulevard. Assumed to be someone else, he is led by Max the butler to the mansion's owner, silent film star Norma Desmond. Wishing to make a comeback, she hires him to rewrite her "Salome" script, then falls in love with him. Joe moves into the mansion as a kept man. Secretly, Joe is collaborating with a pretty young screenplay editor, Betty Schaefer, on another idea. Though she is engaged to his best friend, Artie Green, an assistant director, Betty falls in love with Joe. When Betty finds out about Norma, she asks him to leave Norma for her, but Joe can't unsettle her life, too. He decides, instead, to leave Hollywood. As he is leaving, a crazed Norma tries to stop him. I adore William Holden, he's simply gorgeous.

Shipwreck Kelly - Flagpole Sitter One of the weirder phenomena of the 1920s was the popularity of flagpole-sitting, a strange publicity gimmick mastered by Alvin (Shipwreck) Kelly. In 1924 Kelly was hired by a Hollywood press agent to promote a new film by sitting on the flagpole above the Los Angeles theater where the movie was playing. He remained there for 13 hours and 13 days, starting a bizarre national craze. By 1928 Kelly was earning over $100 per day for his stunts--fantastic money in those days. The apex of Kelly's career occurred in 1930 when he spent 1,177 hours atop a 125-foot flagpole at Atlantic City's Steel Pier. The Great Depression, however, diminished the public's appetite for such stunts. By the end of 1930 Kelly's stunts were earning him little more than pocket change. His last public appearance of any significance occurred in 1939. Broke and on welfare, Kelly dropped dead in 1952 while walking between two parked cars in New York City. Clutched tightly in one arm was a scrapbook containing clippings and momentos from his glory days as King of the Flagpole Sitters.

Kansas City Bomber 1972 Although, this movie is not an Academy Award Winner, it has it's own type of charm. It cashed in on the Roller Derby craze of the early '70s. I had to admire Raquel Welch in this film because she actually did all of her own roller stunts.

Roller Boogie Here's one that needs to be included in any 1970s time capsule: The trailer for the 1979 film Roller Boogie. (In case you missed it, this Linda Blair flick was designed to cash in on the short-lived roller disco craze.)

Magnificent Marble Machine Here's a unique and forgotten game show: The Magnificent Marble Machine! Hosted by Art James, the show ran for 11 months on NBC starting on July 7, 1975. Designed to take advantage of the pinball craze, contestants were paired with celebrity partners to solve word puzzles, which, by some bizarre logic, entitled the winners to play an oversized pinball machine for cash and prizes! If the ball hit a bumper the contestant won a prize. Hey, I liked the show, but I was 11 years old at the time.

Dance Marathon Craze During the 1920s and 1930s, dance marathons were a popular diversion in the United States. It is estimated that at their pinnacle, dance marathons were the main source of livelihood for 20,000 frequent competitors, officials, promoters, and musicians. Rules varied from place to place, but generally a couple stayed in the running for cash prizes as long as they kept moving on the dance floor. Only short respites were allowed every few hours for meals and rests. One event in New York City in 1937 lasted 481 hours--slightly more than 20 days! By the late 1930s, several cities and states had outlawed dance marathons because of the health dangers that accompanied sleep deprivation. This colorized photo from 1925 shows a typically exhausted couple.

Farewell - Davy Crockett aka Fess Parker Passes at age 85 Fess Parker, a baby-boomer idol in the 1950s who launched a craze for coonskin caps as television's Davy Crockett, died Thursday of natural causes. He was 85. Family spokeswoman Sao Anash said Parker, who was also TV's Daniel Boone and later a major California winemaker and developer, died at his Santa Ynez Valley home. His death came on the 84th birthday of his wife of 50 years, Marcella. "She's a wreck," Anash said, adding Parker was coherent and speaking with family just minutes before his death.
