The Conqueror- Nuked Many Actors Filmed near the site of contemporaneous nuclear testing grounds, the set was contaminated by nuclear fallout. After location shooting, much dirt from the location was transported back to Hollywood in order to match interior shooting done there. Scores of cast and crew members developed forms of cancer over the next two decades, many more than the normal percentage of a random group of this size. Quite a few died from cancer or cancer-related problems, including John Wayne, Susan Hayward, Pedro Armendáriz (who shot himself to death soon after learning he had terminal cancer), Agnes Moorehead, 'Thomas Gomez' , John Hoyt and director Dick Powell. People magazine researched the subsequent health of the cast and crew, which it published in November 1980. By the time of the article's publication, 91 of the 220 members of the film's cast and crew had contracted cancer, and half of these had died from the disease. The figures did not include several hundred local American Indians who served as extras on the set. Nor did it include relatives who had visited cast and crew members on the set, such as the Duke's son Michael Wayne. The People article quoted the reaction of a scientist from the Pentagon's Defense Nuclear Agency to the news: "Please, God, don't let us have killed John Wayne".

The Conqueror 1956 There are not many bad John Wayne movies--but The Conqueror (1956) qualifies as a turkey. In it Wayne plays Temujin, a Genghis Khan-type character whose armies run amuck. He captures a Tartar woman (played by Susan Hayward) who is considered spoils of war. Says Temujin: 'I feel this Tartar woman is for me, and my blood says, take her. There are moments for wisdom and moments when I listen to my blood; my blood says, take this Tartar woman.' Of course a romance blossoms. The movie was universally panned by critics and is seldom seen on television. The Conqueror was filmed near an atomic testing site in Utah. Five notable cast members (Wayne, Hayward, Agnes Moorehead, Thomas Gomez, and Pedro Armendariz) all died of cancer.

First MLB All-Star Game 1933 The first MLB All-Star Game was played n 1933. Arch Ward, the Chicago Tribune's sports editor, came up with the idea for the game. It was to coincide with the celebration of the city’s 'Century of Progress' Exposition. By the 1930s, baseball had already established itself as America’s favorite pastime and the national exposition provided the perfect stage to introduce baseball’s best to the rest of the country. The game was originally conceived as a single, one-time event to help lift the spirits of the country during the Great Depression. However, its enormous popularity made the All-Star Game an annual event. That first All-Star Game was played on July 6, 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago on a day when both leagues had no games scheduled. Retired Giants' manager John McGraw was chosen to manage the National League team, while Philadelphia Athletics' manager Connie Mack led the American League team. More than 47,000 fans attended. There was one player in particular who excited fans and players alike. 'We wanted to see the Babe,' said NL starting pitcher Bill Hallahan. 'Sure, he was old and had a big waistline, but that didn’t make any difference. We were on the same field as Babe Ruth.' (The National League team is shown in the photo below.) The first run was scored in the second inning, when AL starting pitcher Lefty Gomez drove in Jimmie Dykes with a single. In the next inning, Ruth gave the fans what they came to see--a two-run homer into the right-field stands. The crowd 'roared in acclamation' for the homer, according to Baseball Almanac. The AL went on the win the game 4-2, bolstered by Ruth’s home run, Jimmy Dykes' two hits, and seven innings of two-run pitching by Lefty Gomez, who got credit for the win. The National League was led by the 'Fordham Flash,' Frankie Frisch of the St. Louis Cardinals, who had two hits (including a home run) and two hits by Bill Terry, the first baseman of the New York Giants.

Andre Agassi and the Wig Andre Agassi burst upon the pro tennis scene in the late 1980s. His rebel style--plus the fact that he was incredibly talented--won him a lot of youthful fans. A big part of his image was his long locks of hair. To the surprise of many, Agassi revealed in Open, his 2009 autobiography, that his famous hair was actually a wig. Agassi started to lose his hair in 1987 at age 17 and began wearing a hairpiece during his matches. (Agassi's rug disintegrated the night before he was to play in the 1990 French Open final versus Andres Gomez. He repaired it with bobby pins, but was so worried about it coming apart that he lost the match--one he probably should have won.) In 1995, his fiancee Brooke Shields convinced him to go with the sheared look he wore until he retired in 2006 and continues to have to this day.
