Hollywoods  Sex Goddess   Rita Hayworth Rita Hayworth was born Margarita Carmen Cansino in Brooklyn NY, on October 17, 1918. She found fame as an American actress during the 1940's as the era's leading sex symbol. Although there was prejudice against Hispanic actors at the time, she is now widely regarded to be one of the first Hispanic-American "sex goddess" of "Golden Age" Hollywood with leading roles in film. Rita left her film career in 1948 to marry Prince Aly Khan, the son of the Aga Khan, the leader of the Ismaili sect of Shia Islam. After the marriage collapsed in 1951, Rita returned to America to star in a string of hit films, Affair in Trinidad, Salome, and Miss Sadie Thompson. Then she was off the big screen for another four years, due mainly to a tumultuous marriage to singer Dick Haymes. In 1957 she starred in Fire Down Below. Her last musical was Pal Joey. She got good reviews for her acting in such films as Separate Tables, and The Story on Page One, and continued working throughout the 1960s. It was during that time that she suffered an early onset of Alzheimer's disease, which was not diagnosed until 1980. In 1964 she appeared with John Wayne in Circus World and in 1972 she made her last film, The Wrath of God. She died of complications from Alzheimer's disease in 1987 at age 68.

The Wombles This kids show ran for years in the UK. Based on the book by Elisabeth Beresford these furry long nosed creatures recycled rubbish left behind by us untidy humans. Mike Batt provided the music and at the time kept some of the biggest bands in the world from the top spot on the charts here. All the voices for the characters were provided by Bernard Cribbens, a well known British actor of the time.

Dan Quisenberry One of my favorite baseball personalities was the quotable Dan Quisenberry, ace relief pitcher for the Kansas City Royals--when the Royals had a good team. The submarine-style hurler recorded 244 career saves, but he was most fondly remembered for his offbeat sense of humor. One year in the Royals' press guide he listed his hobby as 'tinfoil chewing' and said his favorite thing about baseball was 'no homework.' Regarding baseball salaries, Quisenberry said, 'No man is worth another, and none is worth more than $12.95.' On the future, he noted, 'I've seen the future, and it's much like the present, only longer.' Diagnosed with brain cancer in 1998, Quisenberry was typically philosophical: 'I've had so many good things happen to me. So why not me?' He died later that same year at age 45.

Michael Landon Final Tonight Show Appearance In April 1991, TV icon Michael Landon was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer. A month later, on May 9, 1991, Landon was in high spirits when he made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show. He died seven weeks later. I apologize for the poor quality of the clip, but it's worth watching.

Final Ed Sullivan Show - 1971 The Ed Sullivan Show (called The Toast of the Town until 1955) debuted on CBS on June 20, 1948. The first season it aired live on Sundays from 9 to 10 p.m. For the next 22 years it aired on Sundays from 8 to 9 p.m. and became a television staple and a cultural institution. Fondly remembered, The Ed Sullivan Show is arguably the most important entertainment program in television history as it showcased the world's best singers, dancers, actors, musicians, magicians, circus acts, and comedians. (Many classic Broadway performances exist today solely because they were preserved on The Ed Sullivan Show.) Despite Ed's obvious shortcomings as a television host--he was extremely "wooden" as an emcee--the appeal of the show was that it provided something for everybody. One critic aptly declared, "Ed Sullivan can't sing, dance or tell jokes--but he knows who can!" By 1971 The Ed Sullivan Show was in decline, however. Ratings were still generally good, but the all-important demographics showed that younger viewers were no longer watching in sizable numbers. Accordingly CBS unceremoniously applied the ax. The last live show aired on Sunday, March 28, 1971. The performers on that final Sunday were folk singer Melanie; singing duo Tony Sandler & Ralph Young; Danny Davis & the Nashville Brass; mezzo-soprano Joanna Simon; impressionist David Frye; comedian Joey Adams; comedy duo Norman Wisdom and Tony Fane; comedian Lennie Schultz; and sleight-of-hand artist Vic Perry. Sullivan, who hoped to extend his show to at least 25 seasons, had no inkling the March 28, 1971 broadcast would be the last show, so there was no grand finale or tearful farewell. Reruns continued through June 6, 1971. The Ed Sullivan Show was replaced by the CBS Sunday Evening Movie--which lasted just one season. From all accounts, the cancellation of the show deeply affected Sullivan's health and well being. He began exhibiting signs of senility. Paul McCartney recalled encountering Sullivan about a year after the show's cancellation and Sullivan had no idea who McCartney was. Joan Rivers had a similar experience. Sullivan died on October 13, 1974--which was a Sunday--just a few months after being diagnosed with advanced esophageal cancer. He was 73 years old.

Gunilla Hutton-Nat King Cole Romance Gunilla Hutton was the Swedish singer/dancer who was the second actress to play eldest sister Billie Jo Bradley on Petticoat Junction. She was also a regular on Hee Haw for many years; her character was appropriately named Nurse Goodbody. Less well known is Hutton's involvement with Nat King Cole. At age 20, she began a romantic tryst with the legendary singer, who was 47, while she toured with his show. Had the public learned about it at the time (1964), the interracial affair and their age difference would have been a major scandal. Still, Cole was prepared to divorce Maria, his wife of 21 years, but ill health entered the equation. Cole was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Knowing he had only a short time to live, Cole opted to stay with his wife instead of Hutton.

Ernie Harwell Dies The Detroit Tigers say longtime broadcaster Ernie Harwell has died today (May 4, 2010). He was 92. Harwell called Tigers games for more than four decades and was one of Michigan's most beloved sports figures. Spokesman Brian Britten said Tuesday that the team learned about Harwell's death from his agent. Harwell announced in September 2009 that he had been diagnosed with inoperable cancer of the bile duct. Harwell started with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1948 and continued with the New York Giants and Baltimore Orioles before joining the Tigers in 1960. The Baseball Hall of Fame honored Harwell in 1981 with the Ford C. Frick Award, given annually to a broadcaster for major contributions to baseball. The Detroit Free Press said Harwell died at his home in Novi, Michigan.
