In 1882, Actor Bela Lugosi was born in Hungary. Best known for his role as the vampire count in “Dracula,” Lugosiʹs heavy accent limited him to mostly B-movies. He died in 1956 during the filming of Ed Woodʹs cinematic low-point “Plan Nine from Outer Space,” and reportedly was buried wearing his Dracula cape.

In 1930, Ten + 20 = 30

In 1954, “Peter Pan” starring Mary Martin opened at Winter Garden Theater New York City for 149 performances.

In 1955, One of singer Harry Belafonteʹs most popular hits was recorded for RCA Victor Records, under its original title, “Day-O.” It was written by Carl Carleton, Eric Darling and Alan Arkin, who were the Terriers at that time. It made its way to the Pop charts in 1957 after being re-titled “The Banana Boat Song (Day-O).” Stan Freberg had some fun with that song in a send-up of the hit song afterwards.

In 1956, R.C., “Now You Has Jazz” by Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong peaked at #88 on the pop singles chart.

In 1963, The Beatles recorded their first of seven Christmas fan club records.

In 1972, In a Brady Bunch episode called “Cyrano de Brady”, Peterʹs crush on Janʹs new girlfriend Kerry is frustrated so he enlists Gregʹs help; after his own efforts fail to attract Kerry, Peter goes to Greg for help. Greg plays Cyrano for Peter but it results in Kerry rejecting Peter for Greg.

In 1973, “The Six Million Dollar Man”, TV Scifi Adventure starring Lee Majors, debut on ABC.

In 1974, “Weekend” debuts on NBC with host Lloyd Dobyns. An experimental mix of hard news, odd features (“The Pigeon Wars”), sarcastic commentary and running cartoons, this offbeat late-night newsmagazine airs once a month, and will alternate with “Saturday Night Live” once that program starts.

In 1976, Charlieʹs Angels starlet Farrah Fawcett accidentally pops out of her detective outfit, exposing a bare breast, during an episode called Angels in Chains. (Apparently, the editors were too engrossed in the plot to catch this mistake before airtime.)

In 1990, On the cover of TV Guide: “Marge Simpson, Oprah Winfrey, Delta Burke”. Other Articles: Best and Worst Dressed, Sharon Gless

In 1991, NBC enlists Jeannie to fend off ABCʹs “Dynasty: The Reunion” with another reunion movie — “I Still Dream of Jeannie.” As Hagman still doesnʹt want to return to his previous role, the writers send Colonel Nelson is on a long-term, top-secret space mission. As a genie canʹt survive on earth for more than three months without a Master, she eventually finds someone new to serve — Ken Kercheval, Larry Hagmanʹs archenemy from “Dallas.” Whew!

In 1991, “Dynasty: The Reunion” aired on ABC as part one. Opposite it was another reunion movie “I Still Dream of Jeannie”.

In 1992, “Beverly Hills, 90210” album (soundtrack) was released. Why? I donʹt know. I guess releasing a soundtrack to the “Blossom” TV show wouldnʹt have sold many albums.
