Bob Hope on Whats My Line 1958 Bob Hope was the mystery challenger on this episode of What's My Line from April 13, 1958. Most noteworthy is the fact that it is one of the rare WML episodes not hosted by John Daly. (There were only four such occasions in 17.5 years!) Clifton Fadiman does the honors instead.

In Their Own Words In Their Own Words .. Remembering the Forgotten Theater of World War II The China - Burma - India Theater Throughout the history of the world, in times of peril and aggression, nations have called upon their military forces for defense against their enemies. Our country has been very fortunate for, whenever the men and women who comprise our Army, Navy, air forces and other services have been called upon; they have served their country bravely and faithfully, regardless of where they were sent or what they were asked to do. Many Americans remember their dedicated service and are appreciative of their performances, but, too soon after the danger is over, the services of these veterans fade into oblivion. 1st Lt.

Makin It - Failed Disco Sitcom In 1979 ABC figured the time was ripe for a disco-themed sitcom. Actually, the timing was bad. The disco fad was already on the decline, but that didn't stop ABC from giving the public nine episodes of Makin' It. The series was set in Passiac, NJ. David Naughton starred as college student Billy Manucci. Billy worked part time at Tasty Treats (an ice cream store) and spent his evenings at Inferno, Passiac's hottest disco. Ellen Travolta played the mother of Billy, an older son named Tony (who was the best dancer at Inferno), and daughter Tina. Some people have said Makin' It attempted to be a hybrid of Happy Days and Saturday Night Fever. (I think that's a fair comment. The first episode was titled Stayin' Alive. The opening credits are certainly Happy Days-like.) Here's the opening montage. Makin' It debuted on February 1, 1979 and last aired on March 23. Interestingly, the show's catchy theme song, performed by lead actor Naughton, became a hit after Makin' It had been cancelled by the network. It reached #5 on the Billboard Top 40.

Rodney Allen Rippy Rodney Allen Rippy was well known for a few years for his appearances in television commercials, most famously for his work in ads for Jack-In-The-Box restaurants. His fame got him a few small TV roles. (He played himself as the absentee landlord in an episode of The Odd Couple.) By 1975 he had pretty much faded out of show business and into anonymity. As a young man, Rippy earned a university marketing degree. The largely forgotten 42-year-old Rippy made news in September 2010 when he was seriously injured in a motorbike accident.

Queen For A Day Total Television calls Queen For A Day, '...possibly the most maudlin game show ever broadcast'--and for good reason. Considered a forerunner of modern-day reality TV, QFAD was a successful radio program beginning in 1945 before airing on daytime television from 1956 through 1964. At the peak of the show's popularity in the late 1950s, NBC expanded it from 30 to 45 minutes to sell more commercials, at a then-premium rate of $4,000 per minute. QFAD opened with host Jack Bailey asking the largely female studio audience, 'Would YOU like to be queen for a day?' After this, the contestants were introduced and interviewed. Each contestant talked about recent financial and emotional hard times she had been through. The sob stories were rated on an applause meter. Bailey began each interview gently, asking the contestant first about her life and family, and maintaining a positive and upbeat response no matter what she told him. The interview climaxed with Bailey asking the contestant what she needed most and why she wanted to win the title of Queen for a Day. Often the request was for medical care or therapeutic equipment to help a chronically ill child, but sometimes it was as simple as the need for a hearing aid, a new washing machine, or a refrigerator. Many women broke down sobbing as they described their plights, and Bailey was always quick to comfort them and offer a clean white handkerchief to dry their eyes. The more pitiful the story a contestant had, the likelier the studio audience was to reach the applause meter's highest level. The winner, to the musical accompaniment of Pomp and Circumstance, would be draped in a sable-trimmed red velvet robe, given a glittering jeweled crown to wear, placed on a velvet-upholstered throne, and handed a dozen long-stemmed roses to hold as she wept, often uncontrollably, while her list of prizes was announced. The prizes began with the necessary help the woman had requested, but might include a vacation, a night on the town with her husband or escort, silver-plated flatware, an array of kitchen appliances, and a selection of fashion clothing. The losing contestants were each given smaller prizes; no one went away from the show without a meaningful gift. Bailey's trademark sign-off was 'This is Jack Bailey, wishing we could make every woman a queen--for every single day!' A 1970 short-lived syndicated revival of QFAD quickly fell into disfavor with viewers when it was revealed the 'contestants' were actually actresses.

Ron Palillo Actor Ron Palillo is best known for his role as the timid, dorkish Arnold Horshack on the 1970s sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter. Palillo was born on April 2, 1949, in Cheshire, CT. He became interested in acting at an early age. By age 14, Palillo had started a profitable summer theater enterprise in his hometown. After high school, Palillo attended the University of Connecticut where he majored in drama. After graduation, Palillo took a job with a touring Shakepeare company. Palillo later moved to New York City and acquired a role in the successful off-Broadway play Hot-L Baltimore with which he stayed for over a year. Palillo's stage success led to his role as Horshack on Welcome Back, Kotter in 1975. Although he was playing the part of a high school student, Palillo was 26 years old when the show debuted. In contrast, teacher Gabe Kotter (played by Gabe Kaplan) was only 30. The Horshack character is fondly remembered for his odd, nasal, hyena-like laugh and his childish way of yelling 'Oh! Oh! Oh!' whenever he raised his hand to answer a question. When the sitcom was axed in 1979, Palillo found it difficult to obtain new acting roles. To distance himself form the Horshack character, he had a nose job and a chin job. Palillo did make onetime appearances in a few TV shows such as Love Boat, Cagney and Lacey, and The A-Team, but he has definitely faded from the limelight. One website, Washed Up Celebrities, claims Palillo will talk to anyone for a $20 fee.
