Biograph Girl Florence Lawrence Canadian born Florence Lawrence was America's first big movie star--but no one knew her name. During the first decade of the twentieth century, movie companies did not publicize their actors' names in order to keep their salaries down. Florence Lawrence made dozens of films for D.W. Griffith's Biograph Company and became the studio's most noteworthy star. Nevertheless she remained anonymous. Known to her fans only as 'the Biograph girl,' she was earning just $25 per week. When she left Biograph in 1910 to join the newly formed IMP company, her new studio started a false rumor that she had been killed in a streetcar accident in St. Louis. It then announced that 'the Biograph girl' was Florence Lawrence. She was alive and well and about to star in a new film for IMP. This was likely the first Hollywood publicity stunt. Lawrence appeared in more than 300 films, but her popularity waned almost as quickly as it had grown. By the 1920s she had only uncredited bit roles and was earning $75 per week. The Great Depression ruined her finanacially and she endured three unhappy marriages. In December 1938, a week before 53rd birthday, Lawrence committed suicide by ingesting ant paste.

Mike Tyson SI Cover There was once a time when Mike Tyson was a positive force for boxing. He was six months shy of his 20th birthday when he first appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1986 billed as 'Kid Dynamite.' Tyson's story made good copy: He was a tough kid from the projects who was more or less adopted by boxing guru Cus D'Amato and turned into a champion with frightening power. D'Amato also instilled in Tyson a love of boxing history--a rare commodity among modern pugilists. D'Amato died not long afterwards. So did another one of Tyson's handlers, Jim Jacobs. Tyson wed actress Robin Givens, but the marriage was a disaster. Things spiralled downward from that point...

Auchincloss Family Photo While born of the same mother, Jacqueline Bouvier and James Auchincloss had different fathers. Divorce and remarriage resulted in a blended Auchincloss and Bouvier family, and Jackie and young "Jamie" lived together at the Auchincloss family home in Newport, R.I., for a time. Jackie considered herself a big sister to Jamie and even had him carry her train at her 1953 marriage to JFK at the Auchincloss estate. Ten years later he would walk directly behind her in the funeral procession after having been entrusted to spend the previous couple of days shielding John Jr. and Caroline from the news of their fatherís death...

America   Sister Golden Hair A very good live version. The song is about a man trying to get up the courage to take his girlfriend to the altar to marry, however he is plagued by self-doubts. He pleads for her understanding and re-affirms his love and affection for her, but he says he is not yet ready for the altar. She is only identified as "Sister Golden Hair." He asks her to meet him half-way, which is taken to be a proposal that they live together. The song, while immensely popular, was criticized in conservative circles as a plea for common law marriage and living in sin. This may also have been why the song was so popular with the younger generation. 1975

Marriage Proposal Rejected At Basketball Game I've been waiting for this to happen at one of these public marriage proposals: At a February 13, 2008 basketball game, a Houston Rockets fan asks his girlfriend to marry him--and she says no! (On the bright side, the Rockets did beat the Sacramento Kings 89-87 that night. I'm sure that cheered up the poor fellow!)

Charlie Chaplin Lita Grey Marriage 1924 Lita Grey, born in 1908, became Charlie Chaplin's second wife in 1924. Charlie was born in 1889. Do the math. She was 16 while Charlie was 35. Lita was pregnant at the time and the couple married in Mexico to avoid a scandal. (Chaplin could have been charged with statutory rape in California.) Grey had made Chaplin's acquaintance when she played a dancer in a dream sequence in The Kid (1921) when she was 13. The two had virtually nothing in common and divorced in 1927. Chaplin was ordered to pay a financial settlement of $600,000 plus another $100,000 in trust for each of the two children the marriage produced. It was a record divorce settlement at the time.
