The Hollywood Squares - 1972
Remembering Cheyenne | starring Clint Walker
The Warner Brothers TV Western of the 1950's and early 1960's. Debuting in 1955, "Cheyenne" made history as television's first hourlong western and introduced brawny actor Clint Walker to the world as the jack-of-all-trades loner Cheyenne Brodie. Raised by an American Indian tribe after the death of his parents, the physically imposing Cheyenne calls upon the many skills learned from his past as he wanders the Old West, finding action and adventure at every turn. Like many other productions during the Golden Age of Television, "Cheyenne" had its share of guest stars who would later become famous in their own right, including Rod Taylor, Dennis Hopper, George Kennedy, James Garner, Richard Crenna and Michael Landon.
Evel Knievel - The True Story
Born Robert Craig Knievel, he changed his name to suit his personality and dangerous profession. Evel Kneivel was an American daredevil, entertainer, and international icon. Getting his start as the leader of a motorcycle stunt troupe called “Evel Kneivel’s Motorcycle Daredevils” in the 1960’s, Kneivel went out on his own, becoming famous for his death-defying motorcycle stunts. Between 1965-1980, Kneivel attempted over 75 spectacular ramp-to-ramp jumps, leaping his motorcycle over dangerous obstacles like snakes, sharks, and Greyhound buses. While his successful jumps were exciting to his thrill-seeking fans, his failed attempts and crashes were also record setting. The Guinness Book of World Records gave Evel Kneivel the distinction of surviving the ‘most broken bones in a lifetime’. On New Year’s Eve, 1967, crowds gathered to witness Kneivel’s motorcycle jump over the fountains of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, which earned him recognition worldwide and a great amount of broken bones. The riskier the stunts, the more his legendary popularity grew. Grabbing the attention of millions of fans, Kevel attempted increasingly dangerous jumps including a famous failed try to jump across Idaho’s Snake River Canyon in 1974 in a rocket powered motorcycle. A great showman with a sense of style often compared to Elvis Presley, Evel Kneivel was known for his spectacular red, white and blue leather jumpsuits. The image of watching Kneivel roar his motorcycle up a ramp and catapult over impressive obstacles including 20 parked cars, earned him recognition as ‘America’s Daredevil’ - an international icon and a folk hero for the ages. Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999.
