Bewitched Switches Darrins A great many TV sitcoms have experienced cast changes during their runs. None, however, was more startling to the average viewer than when the role of Darrin Stephens on Bewitched went suddenly from Dick York to Dick Sargent in 1969. York had portrayed Darrin since the series premiered in 1964. However, York had suffered a severe back injury while filming a movie in 1959. He became heavily dependent on pain killers for sleeping and getting through the day. By 1968 York's back injury was so crippling that he had to be written out of several episodes and/or the show's shooting schedule had to be changed to accommodate his absences. Often, when York was able to work, his scenes were structured so he could lie down on a couch or a bed. Finally in January 1969 he passed out during a taping and had to be rushed to a hospital. During York's hospitalization, producer William Asher asked York if he wanted out of the show. York knew he couldn't continue so he reluctantly agreed. He was replaced by the much taller Dick Sargent who played a more assertive version of Darrin. How did the show account for the dramatic change in appearance of its leading male character? One idea was to have Darrin the victim of a spell that made him grow. Eventually it was decided that nothing would be said; Sargent just assumed York's old role without explanation. Sargent played Darrin until the show's run ended in 1972. Bewitched fans constantly debate which actor played Darrin better. Sadly, York fell on hard times after leaving the series. Bad investments drained his savings. He died in poverty in 1992.

Its A Westinghouse the unique stove seen here is a circa 1920 Westinghouse Automatic Electric Range... the box above the burners on the stove as well as the clock sitting atop it was part of the original equipment: a mechanical device which apparently allowed for the "modern convenience" of pre-setting a specified time for the oven to turn on and off. "The Westinghouse Electric Range will enable you to shop or play or rest when you please, with the comfortable certainty that you will never find your dinner scorched or dried out, and that the finest flavors will be retained. Results are not only certain, but uniformly good, since the range, because of exact heat regulation, will always duplicate its happiest previous effort. The Westinghouse Automatic Electric Range is doing this kind of cooking for thousands of women, in kitchens that stay cool, at a cost for current more reasonable than you might expect, and with considerable savings in food weight."

2002 Breeders Cup Betting Scandal On October 26, 2002, Christopher Harn and two buddies masterminded one of the most talked about betting scandals ever. The annual Breeders Cup races are often called the Super Bowl of horse racing. Six races are run. The popular Pick Six wager requires a bettor to select the winners of all six races prior to the first race being run. The payoff can be enormous if anyone achieves the feat. As an employee of the computer company that handled off-track betting, Harn used his technical know-how to attempt to beat the system. On Breeders Cup day he placed a routine bet using a friend's off-track account. Then, after four races had been run, Harn took advantage of his knowledge of when the results were transmitted. Harn went to his office and altered his friend's original bet to give him the first four winners of the Pick Six. Then he 'boxed' the last two races, ensuring a winning ticket regardless of which horses happened to win the last two races. The payoff was an astounding $3 million. Unfortunately for Harn, the payoff was too rich for his own good. The bet was immediately flagged as suspicious because of the odd betting sequence and because too many longshots had won that day. Eventually investigators pried a confession out of Harn and his co-conspirators. They were convicted of fraud.

Thomas Ince Scandal 1924 One of Hollywood's most enduring and juicy scandals occurred on November 19, 1924. On that date producer/director Thomas Ince died suddenly on The Oneida, William Randolph Hearst's luxury yacht. Ince and several other celebrities were aboard the boat for a belated get-together for Ince's 42nd birthday. The official police report says Ince died of a heart attack. However, most Hollywood historians think the truth was more sinister. For years stories circulated that Ince had been shot to death by a jealous and enraged Hearst. One version has Ince getting way too friendly with Hearst's mistress, Marion Davies. Another version has Charlie Chaplin getting caught in the act with Marion--and Ince being accidentally shot by Hearst with a bullet meant for Chaplin. Chaplin's secretary stated she saw Ince being carried out of the yacht with a bullet hole in his head. The first edition of the next day's Los Angeles Times declared that Ince had been shot to death. Later editions of the newspaper had all references to gunplay expunged--an indication of how powerful Hearst was. Ince's body was quickly cremated, eliminating any chance his remains could be exhumed. Louella Parsons, a small-time entertainment writer from New York, was also aboard The Oneida. Immediately after this incident, she became a star writer in Hearst's syndicated newspaper chain. Was she rewarded for maintaining her silence about what happened on The Oneida that fateful day?

Canadas Most Famous Photo Here's a good question for this website's regulars: What's the most famous photograph in American history? Is it the flag-raising at Iwo Jima? Is it the VJ Day kiss in New York City. Is it Lee Harvey Oswald getting shot? How about the grieving girl at Kent State? There are probably a dozen photos that merit consideration. In Canada we have no such debate. This is it: Frank Orr's photo of Paul Henderson celebrating his series wining goal in Moscow in 1972. Orr got rich from its countless reprints.

Bill Clinton On The Arsenio Hall Show In 1992 then-Governor Bill Clinton was a guest on the original Arsenio Hall Show, where he jammed with the band on the saxophone and then sat down for an interview. The appearance became a watershed moment in pop culture, helping him to connect with younger voters and probably getting elected.

MECO - Close Encounters: Disco Theme (1977) Remember Meco? He was selling records by the truckload in the 1970s. This successful disco dance composer, American music producer Domenico Monardo made his mark in the business by creating highly popular strings of LP's and 45's; all in the middle of the 1970s with many film titles as his source of inspiration. Domenico had the opportunity working with Gloria Gaynor on an array of songs in the early 70s with a production company he had help create."Never Can Say Goodbye" was the 1st time a whole album would include non-stoppable dance beats set on a vinyl recording. Remember Donna Summer? She imitated this too. It wasn't Meco's recorded idea though. He was just a part of it at the time. He continued working with Gaynor in that time as well as briefly getting involved with Diana Ross. This time is was as a studio session musician. With the movies, turns out that he was just a fan of them like you. He was really impressed with the "Star Wars" movie soundtrack. He loved the film so much that he wanted to be a part of it. This version of John Williams "Close Encounters" theme was released in the later half of 1977 on an LP called by Meco called 'Encounters Of Every Kind,' from which the 45 single was played on AM radio for weeks after. Meco continued on with the "dance version" of movie compositions right through the early 1980s. He did among others, "Superman," "The Wizard of Oz," "Star Trek," and was especially known for getting his John Williams disco version of "Star Wars" played on radio waves worldwide. The album that sold bigger than the film soundtrack was entitled "Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk." *E*
