Rutles On Ed Sullivan 1964 I think everyone remembers where they were when they first saw the Rutles perform on the Ed Sullivan show on April 1st, 1964. I don't because I was stricken with childhood amnesia. At least I think I was. Anyway, I remember where I am now but I'm sure that will change.

Citizen Kane - Final Scene This is the final scene of what many film critics consider the greatest movie ever made: Citizen Kane (1941). The movie begins with the lonely death of Charles Foster Kane (based on the life of William Randolph Hearst) in his vast gated mansion. Kane's dying word was "Rosebud!" A reporter wants to know the significance of the word so he tracks down and interviews colleagues of the deceased great man. Kane's life is shown in retrospect from childhood until his death. Kane's mother had run a boarding house in Colorado. She acquired the deed to a mine in lieu of payment from a boarder. The mine provided enormous wealth for young Kane who lived a life of privilege and became famous as a mud-raking newspaper baron and a scandal-plagued failed political candidate. So what's the significance of Rosebud? It was the name of his sled he had when he was an ordinary child. It means everything...or nothing at all. It's up to the viewer to decide.

Postmortem Photography It seems a little bit creepy today--well, actually it seems extremely creepy by modern standards--but it was quite common in the late 19th century to photograph your loved ones in lifelike poses after they had died! Photography was generally very expensive in the 19th century. Often families had no photographs of loved ones while they were alive. Accordingly, as part of a funeral ritual, the recently deceased person would be dressed, posed in a very lifelike position--much like the gentleman in this example--and his/her image was preserved for posterity. Frequently they were posed alongside siblings and parents as part of a family portrait. Because of the slow shutter speed of cameras in those days, dead people were actually the best subjects for photographers as they were guaranteed to stay still. Postmortem photography was surprisingly commonplace in Europe and North America (especially of dead children because childhood mortality rates were very high). It remained quite common until photography became cheaper and families were more likely to have photos of their relatives taken while they were still in the land of the living.

Theda Bara - Forgotten Movie Star Theda Bara is a largely forgotten movie star for two reasons: Her career ended in 1926 so she did not make a single sound film, and most of her 40 feature films were lost in a 1937 studio vault fire. Although she was born in Cincinnati in 1885, studio publicists tried to make her ancestry more exotic than it really was. At one point Bara was listed as being born in a Middle Eastern desert to French and Arabian parents. Bara's faux first name was either a childhood nickname or an anagram of the word 'death'--depending on which fan magazine you read. Her birth name was Theodosia Burr Goodman. Be that as it may, Bara became very famous for her portrayal of Cleopatra in a 1917 feature film. She wore a risque costume and described herself as a 'vamp'--an abbreviation of the word vampire. Only a few seconds of her breakthrough performance survives. She declared she would continue playing vamps 'as long as people sin.' After getting married in 1921, Bara only made two more films before retiring five years later. She died of stomach cancer in 1955 at age 69. Only four of her films are known to exist.

1952 Corn Pops Commercial The two stars of The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok, Guy Madison and Andy Devine, promote Kellogg's Corn Pops in this 1952 commercial. The syndicated western ran from 1951 though 1958. More than a dozen feature films were made by combining various TV episodes. Bit of trivia: Andy Devine's very recognizable gravelly voice was the result of an odd childhood accident. He damaged his vocal chords when he fell while he had a stick in his mouth! Although he has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Guy Madison, who died in 1996 at age 74, is largely forgotten in North America. He had greater success in Italy where he stared in low-budget westerns and combat films in the 1960s.
