Love on a Rooftop - Failed Sitcom Judy Carne and Peter Deuel (a.k.a. Peter Duel) starred in Love on a Rooftop, an ABC sitcom that had potential but was not renewed beyond its premier 1966-67 season. This is the opening sequence. The plot revolved around a newlywed couple, Dave and Julie Willis, and their humorous struggles to survive in San Francisco on Dave's meager weekly salary of $85.37 he earned as an apprentice architect. Matters were complicated by the fact that Julie came from a well-to-do family. Her father did not approve of their less than luxurious lifestyle and often took it upon himself to try to improve it--causing friction with Dave. Rich Little appeared as neighbor Stan Parker. The show began its 30-episode run on Tuesday nights but switched to Thursday in January 1967. It drew better ratings than another new sitcom, That Girl, that followed it on ABC's Thursday lineup. Strangely That Girl was renewed and ended up having a solid five-year network run while Love on a Rooftop pretty much entered sitcom oblivion. ABC aired reruns during the summer of 1971 partly to promote Peter Duel's new light-hearted western show Alias Smith and Jones. Duel committed suicide on December 31, 1971. He was 31 years old.

Henry Ford Invents Charcoal Most people realize that Henry Ford was responsible for the assembly line--a groundbreaking factory innovation that made the manufacturing of automobiles (and everything else) go much faster. Few people, however, know that Ford also invented modern charcoal briquets! Amazingly, Ford's auto assembly line led to the development of the blackened fuel chunks. Here's what happened: One day in the 1920s Ford visited his Dearborn automobile plant and was aghast at the amount of wood that was wasted in the manufacture of his Model T cars. Ford found all types of waste to be unacceptable, so he wanted the wood bits left over from his cars' wheels and interiors to be put to a good and profitable use. He figured that since wood chips were highly flammable, they could be used as a handy portable fuel source. He consulted with some chemists and came up with the idea of charcoal pieces suitable for barbecues. Furthermore, they fit in nicely with promotional literature of the era that encouraged American consumers to buy Ford automobiles for peaceful, long drives in the country. What better way to cap off a serene weekend drive than to have a cookout using Ford's charcoal? This photo shows a package of 1920s briquets bearing the familiar Ford logo.

Shirley Temple 1939 Assassination Attempt On Christmas Eve 1939, child movie star Shirley Temple was appearing on a live radio show in Los Angeles which was both a charity benefit and a means of promoting her new feature movie The Blue Bird. While singing one of the songs from the film, a woman in the audience stood up and pulled a handgun from her purse. Shirley saw the gun and remarkably continued singing--albeit a little bit off key. The woman was subdued and luckily never fired her gun. Police learned that the deranged woman believed that Shirley had 'stolen the soul' of her daughter. Apparently the woman had given birth to a girl on April 23, 1929, but the baby died not long after being delivered. The woman--who was obviously mentally ill--discovered that Shirley Temple was allegedly born on that same day. Employing twisted logic, the woman convinced herself that killing Shirley would be an act of vengeance. Shirley correctly pointed out in her autobiography that the woman had gotten her birth date wrong. Shirley was actually born in 1928. Shirley's mother, Gertrude, had lopped a year off her age to make it appear she was younger than she actually was. Shirley herself was unaware of her correct birth date until she was nearing her birthday in 1941. Only then did her mother tell her she was actually going to be 13 years old instead of 12.

Hulk Hogan Meets Johnny Carson - 1982 In the early 1980s, pro wrestling was a regional enterprise with only a niche following. In 1982, Sylvester Stallone recruited Hulk Hogan to portray the role of Thunderlips in Rocky III, elevating Hogan to a new level of stardom and introducing him to a wider audience. This amusing clip is the 28-year-old Hogan's first appearance on The Tonight Show in June 1982. At that time, Hogan was employed by the American Wrestling Association (AWA). He had been with Vince McMahon Sr.'s World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF) from 1979 to 1982 but was fired for accepting the role in Rocky III. When Vince McMahon Jr. took over the reign of the WWWF (and shortened its name by one W to the WWF), Hogan was brought back into the organization in late 1983 and groomed to be its champion. (Excuse the two minutes of music and NBC promos in the middle of the clip.)

The Second Hundred Years - Sitcom Flop The 1960s were famous for producing far-fetched sitcoms. Here is another that aired briefly on ABC: The Second Hundred Years. Starring Monte Markham and Arthur O'Connell, its crazy plot had O'Connell playing Edwin Carpenter, a man whose gold-prospecting father (Luke) was swept by an avalanche into an Alaskan glacier in 1900. Another avalanche 67 years later conveniently exposed Luke's frozen carcass. Miraculously he was revived--without having aged in the intervening years! Thus Luke now physically resembled his 33-year-old grandson, Ken. (Luke and Ken were played by the same actor, of course, Monte Markham.) Furthermore, for national security reasons, the general public was not allowed to know about this remarkable incident. The show's plots frequently focused on Ken and Luke being able to take the other's place in social situations, and in the culture shock Luke experienced in suddenly going from 1900 to 1967. (In one episode Luke saw a go-go dancer in a cage, thought she was being held against her will, and "rescued" her.) The Second Hundred Years premiered on September 3, 1967 to fairly strong ratings, but it was universally panned by TV critics. Within a very short time it dropped into the bottom 25 network shows and was cancelled after 26 episodes. Here is a promotional clip that aired on ABC just before its premier.
