In 1905, Academy Award-winning actress Joan Crawford was born Lucille Fay LeSueur in San Antonio, Texas. A Jazz-Age flapper, she danced her way into a contract at MGM and went on to star in such films as “Tramp, Tramp, Tramp,” “Our Dancing Daughters,” “Possessed,” “Grand Hotel,” “Rain,” “The Women,” “Strange Cargo,” “A Womanʹs Face,” “The Women,” “Grand Hotel,” “Above Suspicion,” “Humoresque,” “Possessed,” “Sudden Fear,” “Johnny Guitar,” “Queen Bee,” “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”, “Strait-Jacket,” “I Saw What You Did,” “Berserk” and “Trog.” She won a best actress Oscar for 1945's “Mildred Pierce.” Her daughter, Christina, penned an unflattering portrait of her mother in the best-selling book, “Mommie Dearest,” which later became a film starring Faye Dunaway in the title role. Crawford died of cancer on May 10, 1977.

In 1923, Frank Silver and Irving Cohn released “Yes, We Have No Bananas”.

In 1940, “Truth or Consequences” was first heard on radio beginning this day. The Ralph Edwards produced program was hosted by Mr. Edwards before he discovered a young announcer named Bob Barker. Barker also was the showʹs host on television more than a decade later. The radio show was originally heard on only four CBS stations. Later, NBC Radio picked up the show where it eventually became the most popular of all radio quiz shows.

In 1950, “Beat The Clock” starring radioʹs original “Superman”, Bud Collyer, premiered on CBS-TV. A lady named Roxanne was Collyerʹs assistant from 1950 to 1955. Beverly Bentley was the clock beaterʹs assistant from 1955 through the last show on February 16, 1958. It was another one of those Mark Goodsen and Bill Todman productions.

In 1951, The Goofy film, “Home Made Home” is released. The Donald Duck film, “Corn Chips” is released. Chip ʹnʹ Dale also appear.

In 1951, “On Top Of Old Smokey” by Weavers entered the Top 40 chart.

In 1960, “The Charley Weaver Show”, TV Variety; last aired on ABC.

In 1963, R.C., “Pepinoʹs Friend Pasqual (The Italian Pussy-Cat)” by Lou Monte peaked at #78 on the pop singles chart.

In 1963, The Beach Boys released the single “Surfin' U-S-A.”

In 1965, Astronaut, John Young became the first man to eat a corned beef sandwich in outer space. When it comes to events of progress, we will certainly add this to the record book, now wonʹt we?…along with that golf club stunt of Alan Shepardʹs from the surface of the moon years later. Young smuggled the sandwich on board in order to supplement the astronautsʹ meals of dehydrated foods, including powdered fruit juice (Tang).

In 1967, The animated short film, “Scrooge McDuck and Money” is released. Huey, Dewey, and Louie also appear.

In 1977, “How Do You Like Your Eggs?” began airing on QUBE

In 1981, CBS Television announced plans to reduce “Captain Kangaroo” to a 30-minute show each weekday morning and to place the show on at 6:30 in the morning. The reason, according to network brass, was to allow more time for its morning news programming. “The CBS Morning News” continued to struggle against NBCʹs “Today” and ABCʹs “Good Morning America”.

In 1982, Because America canʹt get enough of Erin Moran and Scott Baio (and they canʹt get enough of one another), ABC moves “Joanie Loves Chachi” into its own timeslot and 90 miles south-by-southeast to Chicago, where the coupleʹs band manages to play a few numbers each episode in (his new stepfather) Alʹs restaurant. And while audiences love the show Tuesday nights right after “Happy Days,” they arenʹt able to find the show when it moves a month later to Thursday nights, and its ratings plummet. In May 1983, Americaʹs sweethearts move back behind Fonzie, but by September ABC cancels their gig. Somehow, it was a number one show in an Asian country because the name Chachi translated into a word you cannot print in a family newspaper.

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan called for the development of an anti-missile defense system to protect the United States from potential nuclear attacks. The Strategic Defense Initiative was dubbed “Star Wars” by some. Frank Zappa says “Star Wars wonʹt work” in one of his recordings.

As “Revenge” for showing her undergarments at school, she hopes to have him put in a straitjacket (I guess the same one Napoleon XIV wore when two men in white coats took him away to the funny farm) and lifted up into the heavens by helium balloons.

In 1993, Bruce Springsteen surprises the audience at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey, when he rips off his shirt and launches into Billy Ray Cyrusʹ “Achy Breaky Heart.” “Everybody gets a giggle out of it,” he says, “but that tune is just damn good”
