An audio one-liner from Hogan’s Heroes:
Sgt. Schultz, played by the great John Banner, had multiple opportunities to bust Hogan and his men for their extracurricular activities (demolitions, helping POW’s from other camps escape Germany, impersonating Nazis, etc.), but always managed to look the other way for a piece of apple strudel or a chocolate bar. Often, he would walk away, exclaiming “I KNOW NOTHING!” Banner himself escaped Austria for the US when the Nazis took over and spent World War II serving with distinction as an Army supply sergeant.

You know Anissa (uh-NEE-suh) Jones from Family Affair, which ran from 1965 until CBS’s “rural purge” of 1971. It was her biggest role and her last, although she was considered for the role of Regan in 1973’s The Exorcist (which eventually went to Linda Blair) and Iris in 1976’s Taxi Driver (which became an iconic role for Jodie Foster). When she tragically took her life with a drug overdose in 1976, she was being considered for the role of Violet in 1978’s Pretty Baby, a role that eventually went to Brooke Shields. IMDb tells us “Her fatal overdose was of a combination of cocaine, angel dust, Quaaludes and Seconal. The San Diego County coroner said it was one of the most severe cases of drug overdose he had ever seen in San Diego County.” Wow.

Tomorrow is Opening Day in the Major Leagues. Most of you will recognize my one-liner (okay, it’s four or five) as part of the speech Terence Mann (played by James Earl Jones) gives Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) toward the climax of the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, possibly one of the best baseball movies ever. It helps if you can think of Jones saying this, but why imagine? Here’s the whole speech, from the movie.

I might have used that one before. I don’t care.

Found out the other day that Dial soap was first manufactured by Armour & Co., a Chicago company that also made hot dogs and Treet (like Spam, but different).
