The product was exactly as described and worked very well. Installation was pretty straight forward. I had mudflaps on both front and rear of my truck and I understand from other reviews that the two items flares and flaps were not compatible with each other. I found that to be true, however, I was able to make some modifications to the flaps which allowed me to mount them in conjunction with the flares. I'm very happy with the product. I have bought several of these type of fender flares, these are the best that I have ever purchased!!
Very good looking fender flares and good quality. The fit was perfect. It did take awhile to install because I had factory mud flaps which I had to modify to get them to fit and also I had to remove the original Z71 stickers which the fenders overlapped a small amount. Typical Chevy Silverado rust around the wheel wells. These will hide it and make the truck look better for a little longer.
Took about 3 hours to install. We were able to reuse the mud flaps so it made it look factory. Hopefully the 3M tape will hold up. I've used these a couple of times with great fitment. Showing Slide 1 of 1. Goodyear , in which the court decided against a woman demanding pay equity with her male counterparts, Ginsburg argued, "The court does not comprehend or is indifferent to the insidious way in which women can be victims of pay discrimination.
And in a dissent to Shelby County v. Holder , when the majority on the court overturned a key part of the Voting Rights Act protecting the franchise for Black and other minority voters, she likened it to "throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet. Her standing as one of the most vital liberal voices on the court, and her persistence despite several bouts of cancer, inspired generations of women, and earned her comic portrayals on "Saturday Night Live" and a tongue-in-cheek moniker: "The Notorious RBG.
In a sign of her willingness to seek consensus in the court's chambers, Ginsburg revealed to "Sunday Morning" that she credited her long and happy marriage to a piece of advice from her mother-in-law: "She said, 'Dear, in every good marriage it helps sometimes to be a little deaf. Journalist and author Winston Groom March 23, September 17, was best known for his picaresque novel, "Forrest Gump," about a slow-witted mathematical savant whose life trajectory put him squarely at the center of some of America's most momentous events, crossing paths with the rich, famous and infamous.
As he noted in a New York Times interview, the movie version "took some of the rough edges off" his character. He did manage to incorporate his character's movie fame into a book sequel, "Gump and Co. He wrote 16 fiction and nonfiction books in all, including a Pulitzer Prize finalist, "Conversations with the Enemy," about a American POW accused of collaborating with the North Vietnamese.
His most recent novel was 's "El Paso. Critic and essayist Stanley Crouch December 14, September 16, was a ferocious and influential voice for jazz, as a passionate advocate for revolutionaries in the arts, and a cantankerous detractor of genres he deemed fads. Raised in Los Angeles by his mother, he read Faulkner and Twain, and was by turns radicalized and then de-radicalized by the Black Power movement in the s.
But his radicalism continued unabated in his musical scholarship. He celebrated the "tommy-gun velocity" improvisations of Charlie Parker, and disparaged gangsta rap as "'Birth of a Nation' with a backbeat. He appeared as a commentator in the Ken Burns documentary series "Jazz.
He likened the aesthetics of jazz — individuals contributing to a collaborative vision — to democracy itself. As he explained to journalist Harvey Blume in , "In a jazz band, you'll often have the same thing happen that happens when a person wants to convince other people that his or her policy idea should be embraced. The great bassist Ron Carter said that in a band whoever is playing the strongest idea will convince everybody else to come his way. In a sense it reflects the democratic process.
Five-time Grammy-nominee Toots Hibbert December 8, September 11, was a beloved reggae star who gave the music genre its name, and helped make it an international movement. The Maytals began with ska, continued to rise during the transition to the slowed-down rocksteady, and were at the very forefront of the faster, more danceable sound of the late '60s.
Their uptempo chant "Do the Reggay" is widely recognized as the song which gave reggae its name, even if the honor was unintended. I was playing one day and I don't know why but I started singing: 'Do the reggay, do the reggay' — it just stuck," he told the Daily Star in Never as immersed in politics as his friend and great contemporary Bob Marley, Hibbert did invoke heavenly justice in "Pressure Drop," preach peace in "Revolution," righteousness in "Bam Bam," and scorn his s drug arrest and imprisonment in " That's My Number.
As with other reggae stars, Hibbert's following soared after the release of the landmark film, "The Harder They Come," which starred Jimmy Cliff as a poor Jamaican who moves to Kingston and dreams of a career in music. Hibbert appeared in the film as himself, recording "Sweet and Dandy" in the studio while Cliff's character looks on with awe. By the mids, Keith Richards, John Lennon, Eric Clapton and countless other rock stars had become reggae fans, and Hibbert would eventually record with some of them.
Grammy nominations for Hibbert included best reggae album of for "Reggae Got Soul" and best reggae album of for "Light Your Light. But in the beginning, she told "Sunday Morning" correspondent Anthony Mason in , she was never confident as an actress: "Never. God, no. You see, I came from a Yorkshire family, and compliments were never given. Their way of loving you was telling you what was wrong with you.
But at 17, she earned admission to drama school in London, followed by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Then, suddenly, in she shocked her Shakespearean colleagues and left it all — for a TV show. The show, in which Rigg dispatched bad guys using martial arts while wearing leather catsuits, made her an international sensation.
Her character was embraced, she said, "because she was ahead of her time. Because she was highly intelligent, capable, witty, sexy, independent. I haven't got a clue! She left the series after two seasons, to become the only woman to marry James Bond, in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," and to return to the stage.
She would win a Tony Award for the Greek tragedy "Medea. Though she appeared only sporadically in films, her TV presence included hosting chores for the PBS anthology series "Masterpiece: Mystery! A former model and Columbia University doctoral student who grew up in a conservative Midwestern home, Hite deigned to study the female orgasm not a topic of much research , and used anecdotes she compiled from surveys of 3, women about their sex lives into a frank testimonial to female sexuality.
Her finding that women were not generally satisfied sexually by men alone — that more than intercourse was required — raised her feminist standing, while also inviting tremendous controversy. Hite's book became an international bestseller, selling 50 million copies worldwide.
She followed it with a sequel in , "The Hite Report on Male Sexuality," based on surveys of more than 7, men ages 13 to Her work generated such criticism about her methodology, and backlash about her conclusions even receiving death threats , that Hite would leave the U. She later moved to London with her second husband. In discussing the development of the women's movement, Hite told The New York Times in , ''I don't think women lose their sex appeal at But women have to decide how they're going to feel about how society sees them at that age.
For me, I'm most grateful for that, to still be relevant since [we were] As a child, art and antiquities dealer Forrest Fenn Aug. Late in life, Fenn earned renown for launching other lovers of adventure on a quixotic hunt. The idea of a treasure hunt started after he survived a bout with cancer, he told "Sunday Morning" in : "I said, 'I've had so much fun collecting all of these things.
Why not let somebody else have the same opportunity that I've had? Over the course of a decade countless buffs sought to find the treasure. He received tens of thousands of emails, as seekers tried to decipher the clues. At least four people died in its pursuit, while some were lost during the hunt and had to be rescued. In June of this year Fenn announced that the chest had been found in Wyoming , though he did not disclose the identity of the person who found it.
Asked how he felt, Fenn told the Santa Fe New Mexican , "I feel halfway kind of glad, halfway kind of sad because the chase is over. Louis Cardinals win three league championships and two World Series during the s. Traded by the Chicago Cubs to St. Louis in June , Brock was nicknamed the Running Redbird and the Base Burglar, for stealing bases during his year career. He led the National League in steals eight times, and set a league record in by stealing bases.
A lifetime. For Brock, base stealing was an art form and a kind of warfare. He was among the first players to study films of opposing pitchers and, once on base, relied on skill and psychology. The very business of disconcerting him is marvelously complex. He helped the "Amazing Mets" to their first World Series championship in , an improbable outcome for a franchise routinely mired in last place in their early years.
But pitcher Tom Seaver November 17, August 31, , who won the National League's Rookie of the Year Award in , more than earned his nicknames of "Tom Terrific," or — given his ability to raise the New York baseball club from ignominy to mastery — "The Franchise. Tom said, 'We want more than. The race to a World Series win captured the imagination not just of New York City whose National League post-season combatants, the Giants and Dodgers, had long before upped stakes for the West Coast , but of the nation.
The Mets pushed past the Chicago Cubs in the Eastern Division, finishing the regular season with a record — 25 of those victories pitched by Seaver, including one near-perfect game. In September alone, Seaver went in his last 11 starts, with no relievers, a 1. The Mets then defeated the Atlanta Braves in three games in the playoffs, and took down the Baltimore Orioles, , in the Series. Pandemonium broke out at Shea Stadium when fans poured onto the field in jubilation. In his year career, he was a five-time game winner.
He went with a 2. He pitched one no-hitter, in , while wearing the uniform of the Cincinnati Reds, to whom he was traded following a contract dispute. In , after retiring to run a vineyard in California, Seaver was asked by The New York Times was he was most proud of in his career: "Pitching well consistently over long periods of time.
And I love what I did. I adored what I did. Basketball coach John Thompson September 2, August 30, took over a moribund Georgetown basketball program in the s and molded it in his unique style into a perennial contender, culminating with a national championship team anchored by center Patrick Ewing in At 6-foot, with an ever-present white towel slung over his shoulder, Thompson literally and figuratively towered over the Hoyas for decades, leading Georgetown to 14 straight NCAA tournaments , 24 consecutive postseason appearances 20 NCAA, 4 NIT , three Final Fours , , and won six Big East tournament championships.
Thompson compiled a record. Though aware of his influence, Thompson did not take pride in becoming the first Black coach to take a team to the Final Four, and he let a room full of reporters know it when asked his feelings on the subject at a news conference in I don't take any pride in being the first Black coach in the Final Four. I find the question extremely offensive. During his career, Thompson said what he thought, shielded his players from the media, and took positions that weren't always popular.
He never shied away from sensitive topics — particularly the role of race in both sports and society — and he once famously walked off the court before a game to protest an NCAA rule because he felt it hurt underprivileged students. After retirement, he became a sports radio talk show host and a TV and radio game analyst, joining the very profession he had frustrated so often as a coach.
He loosened up, allowing the public to see his lighter side, but he remained pointed and combative when a topic mattered to him. Actor Chadwick Boseman November 29, August 28, brought regal qualities of determination and grace to his portrayal of heroes both real-life and imagined, from baseball great Jackie Robinson, to "Godfather of Soul" James Brown, to crusading attorney Thurgood Marshall, to Wakandan King T'Challa, a.
Black Panther, in the Marvel superhero films. During college he visited Africa for the first time, working with director Mike Malone in Ghana to preserve and celebrate performance rituals on stage. The trip, he told the Associated Press, was "one of the most significant learning experiences of my life. After roles in the TV series "Lincoln Heights" and "Persons Unknown," Boseman's performance as Jackie Robinson in the biopic "42," and his dazzling portrayal of James Brown in "Get On Up" the following year, made him a star, even before entering the blockbuster arena of Marvel.
Boseman was offered the role of T'Challa without an audition. He introduced Black Panther in the film "Captain America: Civil War," but assumed the full weight of his character — steeped in the lore of comic books and the power of African self-determination — in the origin story "Black Panther. It's always been, 'What is this going to do to make me better? The film's phenomenal critical and commercial success certainly spoke to the public's desire to see a big-budget film featuring a predominantly African American cast and crew.
We know what's like to be beneath and not above. And that is what we went to work with every day," Boseman told the Associated Press. We knew that we had something to give. In her bestselling book "Passages: Predictable Crises of Adult Life," Gail Sheehy November 27, August 24, examined the myriad challenges facing adults struggling with mid-life crises, marital failures, changing gender roles and cultural shifts, and a questioning of identity.
Sheehy wrote in the book's foreword, "It occurred to me that what Gesell and Spock did for children hadn't been done for us adults. It's far easier to study adolescents and aging people. Both groups are in institutions schools or rest homes where they make captive subjects. The rest of us are out there in the mainstream of a spinning and distracted society, trying to make some sense of our one and only voyage through its ambiguities. She drew upon more than interviews, research and personal stories to examine familiar patterns in aging and to express a hopeful message — that there is happiness to be found beyond youth.
An enormously influential work, the success of "Passages" set off a cottage industry of similar books by Sheehy that examined menopause, men's issues, caring for aging family members, and sex. In Sheehy recalled to the Los Angeles Times that when New York publisher Clay Felker her mentor, and later her second husband asked her to cover the presidential campaign of Robert F.
Kennedy, "I said, 'How can I? I've never written a political story! No matter how good they are, you're not going to start a new conversation. What you have to do is tackle big stories and find the why. Her articles, such as her undercover exposes on prostitution, became the basis of such books as "Hustling," while she told the story of her dissolved first marriage in the novel "Lovesounds. While covering the violence in Northern Ireland in the early s, she was nearly hit by bullets on "Bloody Sunday" while talking to a young boy whose face was blown off.
Sheehy escaped the massacre but was deeply traumatized; the experience led her to think about time, the "arithmetic of life," and to "Passages. Sheehy also profiled major political figures, including Gary Hart, George H. She published books on Mikhail Gorbachev and Hillary Clinton. In her memoir, "Daring: My Passages," she wrote about having convinced her editor to let her cover the March on Washington in , only to let her husband — fearing the teargassing of protesters — put the kibosh on traveling there while pregnant.
I would dare to be there as history happened and write what I saw. The Queens-born, L. The band's output would be erratic over the next thirty-odd years, as the group disbanded, then reconstituted with different lineups, Banali being the sole common denominator through Quiet Riot's album, "Hollywood Cowboys. In addition to Quiet Riot, Banali played with W. He also participated in a heavy metal ensemble charity recording titled "Hear 'n Aid," raising money for African famine relief.
In a interview with Modern Drummer magazine , Banali said, "My main concern is not playing drums. My main concern is playing songs. I'm really a song-oriented musician. I'll find the right feel for the song and take out all the drum fills that shouldn't be there. I take out the things that most drummers would definitely like to put in and keep in. I'm beyond that sort of thing. I don't ever expect to be voted the winner of any drum awards or drum polls because I'm a band player.
I don't like to stick out. British actor Ben Cross December 16, August 18, had appeared in films and TV and on the stage for more than a decade before his most prominent role, as Olympic runner Harold Abrahams, in the Oscar-winning film "Chariots of Fire. In a interview with The Scotsman newspaper , Cross recalled shooting the film's slow-motion opening scene at the seaside in St. Andrews: "The water was freezing. And we had bare feet — completely ridiculous. If you spoke to a sports trainer about running barefoot in ice-cold water they'd ask you if you were mad.
But, look, it made for a good opening sequence, so that was that. He laughed about reviews of his athletic performance in the film: "In the original review of the movie, the color magazine of one daily journal, which shall remain nameless, referred to me as a 'plodding plough horse.
Neither is true of course. Photographer Dan Budnik May 20, August 14, was noted for his portraits of artists in New York in the s, and for documenting the civil rights movement. He was accepted into the prestigious Magnum Photos group in and photographed atrocities in Cuba the following year. He photographed the March on Washington including striking portraits of Dr.
King," Budnik told The Guardian in Instead of standing in front of the stage with the rest of the photographers, I climbed on stage and stood in the crowd behind him. Although I could barely see him, I'd worked out he would have to walk past me to get off the stage. I was jammed in and hurt my leg — I've still got a scar — but then suddenly the crowd parted and I could see Dr. He seemed to be in this deep, meditative zone and I managed to capture this beautiful profile. By the late s, Budnik began to devote much of his time to Native American causes.
He photographed the elders of 20 Native American nations across the country. He shot a series of iconic images of O'Keeffe, which were published in People magazine in I told them: 'You want to print pictures that can survive years. There, professors tried to dissuade him from even bringing a guitar onto the school grounds.
But his extracurricular jobs playing guitar — in clubs and for movies and radio — helped him pluck out a career despite his father's misgivings. In the s he took up the Renaissance lute, toured in Europe and the United States, and formed the Julian Bream Consort to record Elizabethan ensemble music.
He recorded dozens of albums over the past 60 years, and won four Grammy Awards, with 20 nominations. Nonetheless his playing career faced a steep challenge in when he broke his right elbow in an automobile accident. Surgeons reset his arm in what Bream felt would be the proper position from which to manipulate guitar strings.
He continued to play until , after suffering injuries in another accident, knocked to the ground by a neighbor's dog. In a interview with Classical Guitar magazine , Bream said, "All my technique — on the guitar, the lute, the baroque guitar, and not forgetting the vihuela [an early Spanish guitar] — was totally homemade.
I've never really been taught how to play these plucked instruments. Therefore, I have an ideal of sound in my head and I get as near as I can to realizing that sound. Director Terrence Malick described Linda Manz August 20, August 14, as "a sort of street child we had discovered in a laundromat. But apart from her remarkable screen presence, it was her narration — lines she pretty much made up in response to rushes after shooting ended — that gave the romantic drama on the sweeping Great Plains an even greater air of haunted tragedy and skewed innocence.
In , a grandmother living in California's Antelope Valley, she ruminated to The Village Voice about her lack of an acting career, projecting a familiar-sounding ironic indifference. I dunno. His father taught Trini how to play, and he graduated from street corners to Dallas nightclubs that didn't allow Mexican American patrons. Glaciologist Konrad Steffen January 2, August 8, was a leading researcher of the effects of climate change on the Arctic, including the Greenland ice sheet, which has experienced increased summer melts over the past four decades.
Its melting has been a significant contributor to rising sea levels. Steffen constructed a camp in Greenland to monitor ice and snowmelt levels rebuilding it over time as ice underneath it disappeared. In a interview with the Global One Project , Steffen lamented that when he talks about climate change to policymakers and politicians, "They think only in two years, election cycles.
What is two years? At 28, the Boston-born Sumner Redstone May 27, August 11, left a lucrative law career to take over his family's business, a collection of drive-in movie theatres. Redstone would rebuild National Amusements into one of America's largest movie theatre chains. As the first Chairman of the Board of the National Association of Theatre Owners of America, he sued the major Hollywood studios over booking practices.
He then bulldozed over drive-ins in favor of a new cinema concept: multiplex theatres. It was one of many examples of Redstone engaging in fierce corporate battles to dominate the entertainment market. In Redstone bought a controlling interest in the media company Viacom. In succeeding years the two companies would split and then, in , merge once again, to become ViacomCBS.
Redstone's determination, so evident in his business dealings, also saved his life during a hotel fire in Boston, which he survived by clinging to a third floor window ledge until firefighters rescued him. He received third-degree burns on nearly half of his body. The millions of dollars he received in a settlement from the hotel he donated to Massachusetts General Hospital, which named its burn center — one of the largest in the Northeast — in his honor. In he talked to the Boston Globe about the fire in which he'd nearly died: "There has been a lot of mythology about that fire.
People talk a lot about how it changed my life, changed my values. That is not true. My values are largely the same. But what is interesting is that the most exciting things in my life have happened after that fire. Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft March 19, August 6, was the only person to serve as national security adviser in two different administrations, playing a prominent role in American foreign policy for Presidents Gerald Ford and George H. The Utah native graduated from the U.
The crash of an F put him in the hospital for two years with a broken back. He then refocused his military career on strategy and planning; earned a master's degree at Columbia University; and taught Russian history at West Point. Following an embassy posting in Yugoslavia, he taught political science at the U. Air Force Academy. After earning a doctorate in international relations, he was appointed military assistant to President Richard Nixon, in , and later became deputy assistant for national security under Henry Kissinger.
Though he left the White House upon the election of Jimmy Carter, he served on President Carter's advisory committee on arms control. Later he served as chairman of President Ronald Reagan's Commission on Strategic Forces, and on the Tower Commission which investigated the arms-for-hostages affair that occurred during the Reagan administration. Scowcroft served as President Bush's national security adviser, and later the two co-authored a book about the Cold War, "A World Transformed.
In , Scowcroft publicly expressed the view that there was little evidence tying Saddam Hussein to terrorist organizations, and warned that a war with Iraq [which President George W. Bush ultimately launched] could damage, if not destroy, U. In August Scowcroft appeared on "Face the Nation" and explained to Bob Schieffer that deposing Hussein should be of secondary importance to addressing terrorism and al Qaeda: "Let's suppose, for example, we're all ready and we launch an attack on Saddam Hussein tomorrow.
It will be tough. It will not be a cakewalk. But can we take him out? Yes, we can take him out. Now, what would the world, or what would the region, look like if we did that right now? I think we could have an explosion in the Middle East. In , one year after the U. The Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board said the White House made "no deliberate effort to fabricate" the claim that Iraq tried to buy uranium in Africa. Their final report was not made public.
A tireless worker used to hour days, Scowcroft offered a self-assessment to The Washington Post on the eve of the George H. Bush administration: "I don't have a quick, innovative mind. I don't automatically think of good, new ideas. What I do better is pick out good ideas from bad ideas. It is comforting to be doing things that make a difference.
In the end, it's the job that's more important. Hamill grew up in Brooklyn, which he described as "a capital of immigrants. Though he grew up poor, and dropped out of high school, he claimed he was not impoverished. What made the difference, he said was the library. He became a library regular before he could even read: "It gave me a sense that there was a world beyond the limits of where I lived here in Brooklyn," he told "Sunday Morning" in Hamill worked with his hands, as a sheet metal worker in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, before joining the Navy, completing high school, immersing himself in Fitzgerald and Hemingway, and attending Mexico City College.
A meeting with Post editor Jimmy Wechsler would usher him into the world of journalism. His crusading stories would touch on topics as varied as those close to the thrum of the city murders, politics, riots, baseball to those in distant lands Vietnam, Nicaragua, Lebanon, Ireland. He'd interview both celebrities, like John Lennon , and the dispossessed. As Hamill wrote in his book, "Piecework" : "I had grown up under the heroic spell of the Abstract Expressionist painters, and one of their lessons was that the essence of the work was the doing of it.
At twenty-five, I thought I had started late and therefore had to hurl myself into the work — and the life that went with it. In my experience, nothing before or since could compare to walking into the New York Post at midnight, being sent into the dark, scary city on an assignment, and coming back to write a story for the first edition. No day's work was like any other's, no story repeated any other in its details. Day after day, week after week, I loved being a newspaperman, living in the permanent present tense of the trade.
I had no idea as a young man that from my initiation into the romance of newspapers would flow novels, books of short stories, too many screenplays, a memoir, and millions of words of newspaper and magazine journalism. I didn't know that I was apprenticing to a trade that I would practice until I die. He also had a brief sojourn as editor of the Post when the paper was mired in bankruptcy proceedings; the new owner fired him, causing the staff to rebel, and Hamill edited that day's edition from a nearby diner.
He later took the reins at the Daily News. You could see it on the subway. You were trying to help the new arrivals to understand the city, and the older people to understand the new arrivals. He also wrote screenplays including, improbably, a western , 21 novels, and a bestselling memoir, "A Drinking Life. You can't write unless you read. Read the classics. If you've never read 'Madame Bovary,' it's a new book!
Utah native and former Marine Wilford Brimley September 27, August 1, spent two decades traveling around the West, working at ranches and racetracks. Encouraged by Robert Duvall, Brimley sought out more prominent jobs, and landed the role of a nuclear power plant engineer in the thriller "The China Syndrome. He also starred in the TV series "Our House. Brimley also made recordings as a jazz vocalist. In recent years, he appeared in commercials for Quaker Oats oatmeal and Liberty Medical. I've never been to acting classes, but I've had 50 years of training," he said in a Associated Press interview.
I was lucky to have had that experience; a lot of newcomers don't. The truth. He migrated from copywriting ads to directing commercials, and wrote his first screenplay, "Melody," in Parker mortgaged his house to finance his first film as a director, "No Hard Feelings," a tale of a London couple during the Blitz, as part of a planned series of World War II-themed stories.
As Parker wrote on his website , "Basically, no one was interested — especially in a couple of oiks from TV commercials who had been daft enough to spend their own money on making a film. On one occasion, carefully taped up cans of the film were returned from Granada TV with a note saying, 'Sorry, we see no place for your production in our schedules.
In during a talk at the National Film Theatre , Parker described the arc of his career: "I started with 'Bugsy Malone,' which was like a ridiculous pragmatic exercise to try and get any kind of film done; and then I did 'Midnight Express. If people don't like them, it's my fault. I don't blame it on to the film studios or anybody else. Because I've lived a charmed life. I've been in absolute control of my work, even though I work in a very difficult area of the Hollywood machine.
They've not interfered with what I've done, and therefore if they end up well or if they're not liked, it's no-one's fault but mine. The ambitions of businessman Herman Cain December 13, July 30, would have seemed beyond those of a son of a man who worked as a janitor, a barber and a chauffeur in the segregated South.
We had to work up to poor! Though he was hired as a civilian mathematician by the U. Navy, he would write that he wanted to be president of "something His corporate career took him from Coca-Cola to Pillsbury and its Burger King subsidiary, eventually taking control of the struggling Godfather's Pizza chain, turning the franchise to profitability. He hosted a radio talk show in Atlanta that dished up his political views and life story to conservatives and Tea Party supporters, and he served as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City for four years in the s.
He publicly tussled with the Clinton administration over health care plans that would force businesses to buy health insurance for their employees, claiming it would force job cuts. His increased visibility led to his becoming president of the National Restaurant Association. His unlikely White House run was dogged by accusations of sexual harassment, but even after dropping out, he maintained a visible presence in the Republican Party with his views on such issues as abortion, homosexuality and climate change.
In his bestselling memoir, "This Is Herman Cain! My Journey to the White House," he recalled what his campaign's chief operating officer told him, which he characterized as the best, most calming advice he'd ever received: "Herman, you don't have to be perfect out there. Just be Herman Cain. Born in Tokyo, the daughter of a British patent attorney, de Havilland moved to California as a child along with her sister, Joan Fontaine, after her parents separated. While in school she was cast in Max Reinhardt's theater production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," and then was hired to repeat her role in the Warner Bros.
Off-screen, de Havilland was a fighter who butted up against the Hollywood studio system and successfully litigated her way out of her contract with Warner Bros. De Havilland was also the target of gossip about her and her sister, with whom she had an estranged relationship and even competed against in the Best Actress Oscar category. In a interview , de Havilland referred to the late Fontaine as "Dragon Lady," and described her as "a brilliant, multi-talented person, but with an astigmatism in her perception of people and events which often caused her to react in an unfair and even injurious way.
In the Associated Press interview at her home in Paris, de Havilland reflected on her longevity: "All the artists I had known during the Golden Era live elsewhere," she said, "including the after world. Actor John Saxon August 5, July 25, had nearly movie and TV credits to his name, beginning as an extra in the mids and working up to a teen heartthrob and, ultimately, becoming a familiar face in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise.
Born Carmine Orrico, Saxon grew up in Brooklyn, and did modeling work as a teenager. A magazine cover would lead him to Hollywood, where his striking looks led to regular work on screen, frequently as ethnic characters. He was best known for his starring roles in genre pictures in the s and '80s, most notably opposite Bruce Lee in the martial arts classic "Enter the Dragon," and Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and two of its sequels.
His voluminous TV credits included appearances on "Bonanza," "Dr. In a interview for a Bruce Lee fan site , Saxon who was proficient in judo and karate himself commented on the public's enduring fascination with "Enter the Dragon":. As a result I once daydreamed that [I was] walking during the dead of night across an empty parking lot, except for my car, with the only light shining on it coming from a nearby street lamp, [as] I drew my keys to open my car door. At which point a guy sprang up from the other, passenger side, of my car pointing a pistol at me, saying: 'Gimme those keys, or else I'll, I'll …' Then lowering the pistol he said: 'Man, you're John Saxon.
What was it like working with Bruce Lee? The Guinness World Record holder for most hours on television more than 15, in all , TV personality Regis Philbin August 25, July 24, won over generations of fans with his charm and genial repartee during a show business career lasting more than six decades. An easy-going companion for morning TV viewers, and a bracing, funny guest for late-night audiences, Philbin also performed stage shows and recorded music as well as hosting game shows like "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and "America's Got Talent.
