Failed TV Series - East Side West Side In 1963 CBS introduced a bold new TV series that was way ahead of its time: East Side, West Side. It starred George C. Scott as Neil Brock, a New York City social worker whose job put him in the forefront with the seedy aspects of the big city. Topics included alcoholism, drug abuse, prostitution, race relations, and even statutory rape. Because of its controversial nature, some CBS affiliates chose not to air the hour-long show which was slotted at 10 p.m. on Mondays--right after The Andy Griffith Show. Predictably, East Side, West Side also had trouble getting sponsors. According to the reference book Total Television, "TV audiences in 1963 just weren't ready for a hard-hitting series focusing on social problems, especially one in which the problems remained unsolved at the hour's end." Only 26 episodes were made. By January 1964 CBS decided to ax East Side, West Side but aired the show occasionally until September of that year. Here is the opening montage for one episode.

Vanishing TV Character- Larry Mondello Robert (Rusty) Stevens played Larry Mondello in 67 episodes of the first three seasons of Leave It To Beaver between 1957 and 1960. That meant he appeared in approximately 2/3 of those 102 shows. Larry was Beaver's best buddy. Good-natured, obese, but not the brightest kid on the planet, Larry often led Beaver into various messes. We never saw Larry's father, but his harried mother (played by Madge Blake) was constantly threatening Larry with the consequences of his iron-fisted pop laying down the law on him once he got home from another business trip. After the 1959-60 season, however, Larry just vanished from the sitcom. According to some reports, Rusty Stevens' father took a job in Pennsylvania. Thus the Stevens family was suddenly uprooted from California, which effectively ended Rusty's TV career. However, a few reports--including comments made by Barbara Billingsley (who played June Cleaver) late in her life--indicate that Stevens' mother was an insufferable stage mom whose presence and antics rankled the producers. Eventually the brains behind the show had had enough of her and decided abruptly to drop Larry Mondello from the show.

Ernest Borgnine-Ethel Merman Failed Marriage On June 27, 1964, 47-year-old Hollywood star Ernest Borgnine and 56-year-old stage star Ethel Merman were wed. However, within five weeks they had separated. Within five months they were divorced. What went so terribly wrong? According to an interview Borgnine gave late in his life, an overseas honeymoon was a disaster. Everyone recognized the Oscar-winning Hollywood actor, but few recognized Merman whose fame did not generally extend into Europe. Merman became upset by this and took out her anger on her new husband. The two began fighting...and that was the end of the couple's brief union. In Merman's autobiography she devoted a chapter to her marriage to Borgnine. It consisted of one blank page.

Metropolis Metropolis is such an amazing movie. Perhaps one of the earliest science-fiction movies I have ever fallen in love with. If you're a fan of romantic science fiction movies, or silent films, this is a must see classic. Though its history is a flop in Weimar Germany, and its original film was lost throughout history, it is an interesting movie to watch. The special effects were ahead of it's time, the movie being from 1927, it is amazing how scenes like the Man-machine's transformation was carried out. I would recommend this to any sci-fi fan.
