Arguello's Spanish nickname translated to 'The Explosive Thin Man.' You'll see why. Watch carefully: The knockout punch comes suddenly. Howard Cosell calls the action.

Roosevelt Hotel Extremely historic place for Hollywood buffs. Spanish Revival style. Opened in 1929 with owners including Louis B. Meyer, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford. The first academy awards were held here in 1928 or 1929 (then called the "Merit Awards") in the "Blossom Room". The set for the TV show "This is Your Life" was located here. The Cinegrill was a famous 1940s nightclub still existing inside. Marilyn Monroe used to stay here and her ghost is said to still haunt the halls (hey - it helps business). Reasonable rates, but rooms facing Hollywood Blvd may be a bit noisier. You can see the hotel in the films Beverly Hills Cop II and Charlie's Angels 2.

Ben E King     Stand By Me In 1960, a singer named Ben Nelson left the Drifters after failing to gain a salary increase and what he felt to be a fairer share of the group's royalties. He then assumed the more memorable stage name Ben E. King in preparation for a solo career. Remaining on Atlantic Records, King scored his first solo hit with the stylish, Latin-tinged ballad "Spanish Harlem" (1961). "Stand by Me" was his next recording. Written by King along with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, "Stand by Me" was voted one of the Songs of the Century by the Recording Industry Association of America. "Stand by Me" and "Spanish Harlem" were named as two of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and were both also given a Grammy Hall of Fame Award. In 1986, Stand By Me was re-issued following its use as the theme music to the movie of the same name. This video was made in the late 80's, with Ben E King and two of the stars of the film, River Phoenix and Will Wheaton.

Spanish Flu Pandemic Here's an interesting video about the world medical catastrophe of the 20th century: The Spanish Influenza Pandemic. In a matter of a few months in 1918-19, 21 million people around the world died from the flu. To put this in perspective, about nine million combatants had been killed from 1914 to 1918 in the First World War.

Jose Feliciano Performs Light My Fire Vocalist and guitarist Josť Feliciano experienced significant international success when he released his version of "Light My Fire" in 1968 as a single on the RCA Victor label. It is perhaps the best known cover of this song, reaching #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts, only a year after the original had been a #1 hit on the same chart. Feliciano's remake blended Latin influences, including a mixture of classic Spanish guitar and flamenco, with American pop sounds and Feliciano saying "Light my fire light my fire light my fire" over and over again. The single helped to spur the worldwide success of its album, Feliciano!, which was nominated for multiple Grammy awards in 1969. ("Light My Fire" is a song originally performed by The Doors which was recorded in August 1966 and released in January 1967)

Among the teams in the ten-team league are the San Diego Seduction, Dallas Desire, Los Angeles Temptation, Chicago Bliss and Miami Caliente. ('Caliente' means 'hot' in a lusty way in Spanish.) Chicago topped Miami 29-19 in the season opener.

Al Martino passes at age 82 Singer Al Martino, who played the Frank Sinatra-type role of Johnny Fontane in "The Godfather," died Tuesday afternoon at his childhood home. He was 82. Publicist Sandy Friedman, of the Rogers & Cowan public relations firm, confirmed Martino's death in the Philadelphia suburb of Springfield, in Delaware County, but didn't cite a cause. Starting in 1952, Martino was known for hit songs including "Here in My Heart," "Spanish Eyes," "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "Volare."

I Love Lucy Pilot Episode Rediscovered I Love Lucy was the first American sitcom to be shot and preserved on 35-mm film, thus ensuring every episode could be shown forever in reruns. However, the pilot episode had mysteriously vanished after it had aired in 1951. For nearly four decades it could not be located, much to the frustration of the show's devoted fans. In 1990, the widow of Pepito Perez, a Spanish clown who had appeared in the pilot episode, announced the good news: She had found the missing episode while dusting under a bed in her home! Apparently Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz had given the only existing copy of the episode to her late husband as a thank-you gift--and quickly forgot about it. It had sat undisturbed in Perez's home for nearly 40 years. Perez had died in 1975. Both Lucy and Desi had also died by the time the pilot episode had been rediscovered. With only a slight bit of restoration needed to the film, CBS aired it as part of an I Love Lucy retrospective on April 30, 1990. Some notable differences in the pilot from the rest of the series: Lucy and Ricky's last name was Lopez instead of Ricardo; their apartment was markedly different; and landlords Fred and Ethel Mertz were nowhere to be seen. Lucy was quite obviously wearing maternity clothes in the pilot, although no mention was made of her pregnancy. The child in the womb was Lucy Arnaz--who hosted the 1990 retrospective show.
