DION AND THE BELMONTS Then and Now In 1957 the group formed when Dion DiMucci joined The Belmonts - Carlo Mastrangelo, Freddie Milano, and Angelo D'Aleo - in late 1957. In 1958 they recorded 'I Wonder Why', which made it to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and Dion and The Belmonts appeared for the first time on Dick Clark's American Bandstand. This success won Dion and the Belmonts their first major tour in late 1958, with The Coasters, Buddy Holly and Bobby Darin. This was followed up by the 'Winter Dance Party' tour with Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. On February 2, 1959, after playing at Clear Lake, Ohio, Dion decided that he couldn't afford the $36 cost of a flight to the next show. The plane crashed, Buddy Holly and the other stars were killed. Even after that time the hits kept coming for the group. In 2004, Dion gave a live performance at the Tropicana in Atlantic City with Dion (lead vocals, electric and acoustic guitars) Butch Barbella (keyboards, backing vocals), Louie Colleti (backing vocals), Jamie "King" Cotton (sax, percussion, backing vocals), Al Korosy (lead guitar), and Charlie Powers (drums, vocals.) Though this performance wasn't with the Belmonts, Dion sounded just like we remember him after 47 years! He's keeping R&R and Doo-Wop alive!

Whats My Line - First Episode Historic television: The very first episode of What's My Line from February 2, 1950 in its entirety. Despite having two really dull panelists, contestants with mundane occupations, and a mediocre mystery guest (New York Yankees' shortstop Phil Rizzuto), WML got off the ground. With a bit of tweaking it would soon be the best panel show on television.

Little Lulu  A Memory of the 30s Old enough to remember Little Lulu? The comic strip first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post on February 23, 1935 in a single panel comic strip, and ran until Dec 30, 1944. Lulu appeared in a series of theatrical animated shorts from 43-48. Her voice was done by Mae Questal, who also did Betty Boop and Olive Oyl. In the late 50's the cartoon was syndicated to tv. The Little Lulu anime is extremely rare and has been out of print in the US for years, although some full-length English-language episodes recently turned up on YouTube, and were said to have all been removed....

Disneys Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was first released in 1937. It was the first animated feature film produced by Walt Disney. It was the first full-length animated feature to become widely successful within the English-speaking world, and the first to be filmed in Technicolor. It made its premiere at the Carthay Circle Theater on December 21, 1937, and was released to theaters by RKO Radio Pictures on February 4, 1938. Walt Disney had to literally fight to get the film produced. Both his brother Roy, and his wife, Lillian, attempted to talk him out of it, and the Hollywood movie industry mockingly referred to the film as 'Disney's Folly' while it was in production. He even had to mortgage his house to help finance the film's production, which eventually ran up a total cost of just over $1.5 million, a whopping sum for a feature film in 1937. It has been well documented that Adolf Hitler watched this film with a room full of children, and was delighted by Disney's adaptation of the German fairy tale. In fact, Hitler offered Disney anything he wanted in exchange for Disney's creation of feature-length animated features in Germany. Though this is the basis for the 'Walt Disney is a Nazi' rumors, Disney's biographer Bob Thomas proved that Disney declined Hitler's invitation, and in fact soon entered production on such anti-German projects as 'Der Fuhrer's Face' and 'Victory Through Air Power'.

Roy Orbison In Dreams 1963 "In Dreams" is a song composed and sung by American rock and roll performer, Roy Orbison. An operatic ballad of lost love, it was released as a 45rpm single on Monument Records in February 1963. The song's opening line refers to "A candy-colored clown they call the Sandman". The Sandman is a character in Hans Christian Andersen's children stories who brings sleep and dreams by sprinkling magic sand onto the sleeping. It became the title track on the album In Dreams, released July 1963, and also appears on his 1989 posthumous album A Black & White Night Live from the 1988 HBO television special. "In Dreams" was used famously in an infamous whorehouse scene in David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986). An effeminate drug dealer, played by Dean Stockwell, lip synchs the song at the insistence of a sadistic criminal played by Dennis Hopper. Later, Hopper's character utters the lines "In dreams I talk to you... in dreams you're MINE - all the time!" as he threatens Kyle Maclachlan's character. The song also appeared in and provided the title for Neil Jordan's 1999 psychological thriller In Dreams. If the structure of a standard pop song is ABABCAB (verse-chorus, verse-chorus, bridge, verse-chorus), then the structure of "In Dreams" is ABCDE: the lyrics "A candy-colored clown," "I close my eyes," "In dreams I walk with you," "But just before the dawn," and "It's too bad that all these things" all introduce sections of new musical material that are not repeated. In 1988, songwriters Will Jennings and Richard Kerr wrote a response to "In Dreams", called "In The Real World", which Orbison recorded for his 1989 album Mystery Girl. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine named "In Dreams" as one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time."

Iwo Jima Flag Raising One of the most famous and powerful images of the Second World War: Joe Rosenthal's dramatic photo of the Marines raising the American flag atop Mount Suribachi during the horrendously bloody Battle of Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945. (Actually only five of the six are Marines; one is a Navy corpsman.) Three of the men pictured here were killed in action before the terrible battle finally ended more than a month later.

GWTW Actress Alicia Rhett Dead at 98 Alicia Rhett, the actress who played India Wilkes (Ashley Wilkes' sister) in the classic 1939 movie Gone With the Wind, has died at age 98 at a retirement home in Charleston, SC where she had resided since 2002. She would have turned 99 on February 1, 2014. GWTW was Rhett's only movie role, although she had a lengthy career as a stage actress. David O. Selznick saw one of Rhett's performances and asked her to audition for the role of Melanie Hamilton. She did not get it, of course. (Olivia de Havilland did.) Rhett instead got the much smaller role of India Wilkes who greatly dislikes Scarlett O'Hara and can see through her southern belle facade. Rhett did not care for Hollywood and returned to South Carolina once her commitment to GWTW was over. At the time of her passing, Rhett was the oldest of four living GWTW cast members whose names appear in the film's credits. (Olivia de Havilland now holds that distinction.) Rhett's great-grandfather was a secessionist senator.

Muhammad Ali Says I Am King Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali graces the cover of the April 1964 edition of The Ring magazine, modestly proclaiming himself to be 'the king' after his title-winning upset over Sonny Liston in February. After his victory, Clay announced to the world that he was shedding his 'slave name.' He briefly called himself 'Cassius X' before adopting the name Muhammad Ali. Nevertheless, many media folks continued to refer to him as Cassius Clay well into the 1970s.
