Their onscreen and sometimes offscreen antics added to their mystique By DONALD LIEBENSON

ReMIND Magazine Tony Curtis once said that he enlisted in the Navy after seeing the Cary Grant submarine classic Destination Tokyo (1943). Since they first flickered on the screen, movies have been a window to observing human behavior and presenting archetypes that audience members could be inspired by. Guys especially wanted to ride tall in the saddle like John Wayne, take nothin’ from nobody like James Cagney’s gangster characters and be dashingly heroic like Errol Flynn’s outlaws. These and other legends from Hollywood’s golden age seemed to know the secret of what it takes to be a man. Whether they were playing heroes or antiheroes, this now vanished breed of movie star talked the talk and walked the walk, onscreen and off. We didn’t condone everything they did in their private lives, but their bad boy behavior, very much in character, only added to their mystique. Lee Marvin, for example, a later-inlife movie star (he won his Oscar when he was 42), was bounced from a lot of schools growing up and was a World War II veteran. Onscreen, they didn’t come any meaner, tougher or more hard-boiled, as witnessed in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) and Point Blank (1967). When making The Dirty Dozen (1967), he would reportedly party all night and show up on the set with other cast members in tow in time to film. But the best story came from film critic Roger Ebert, whose in-

terview with Marvin was interrupted by Marvin’s dog, who entered the room with women’s panties in his mouth. “Keep those panties out of sight,” Marvin said. Bad dog. Humphrey Bogart was initially best known for playing gangsters from the “dead end” streets. He, too, played the tough guy when the cameras stopped rolling. A producer once took him to a Sunset Strip gambling joint, but they were refused entry because of past disturbances caused by Bogart. When the producer insisted that he was now sober, the bouncer told him to look behind him; Bogart was fighting with two parking lot attendants. Perhaps legendary restaurant owner Dave Chasen

said it best: “The trouble with Bogart is that he thinks he’s Bogart.” Robert Mitchum is a film noir poster boy. His father died in a railroad accident when Mitchum was a toddler. He was expelled from schools. He was sentenced to a chain gang when he was a teenager. He bummed around Depression-era America. He was busted for marijuana … in 1948! When it came to Hollywood, he had a take-it-or-leave-it attitude, yet still became a cinematic legend with films like The Story of G.I. Joe (1945), Angel Face (1953), El Dorado (1967), Cape Fear (1962), The Night of the Hunter (1955) and more than 100 other films to his credit. He once said, “People

can’t make up their minds whether I’m the greatest actor in the world — or the worst. Matter of fact, neither can I.” Some Hollywood icons were considered geniuses of their craft. Perhaps that gave them license to, shall we say, act out. Marlon Brando, who revolutionized screen acting with a film resume that included classics like A Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront and Mutiny on the Bounty, was known for his belligerent behavior and open contempt for his profession. Pity the director he didn’t respect. He initially demanded that his Jor-El character in Superman (1978) be designed to look like a suitcase or a green bagel. But no matter; he remained revered, and the chance to work with him was — you guessed it — an offer you couldn’t refuse. Much to Brando’s disdain, James Dean actually patterned his rebellious ways after the legend. The cult of Dean, however, is very much wrapped around the tragic car crash that ended his life at the age of 24, with only three feature films to his credit. In two of those films, East of Eden (1955) and Rebel Without a Cause (1955), he defined 1950s teen angst, which was anything but happy days. Not for nothing was Steve McQueen the King of Cool. As a prisoner of war in The Great Escape (1963) or a tough cop hunting killers in Bullitt (1968), there was no one cooler. He raced cars, never watched his own films and was a style icon. He was also a notorious womanizer, which might have saved his life. According to an ex-wife, he picked up a woman and then backed out of dining with Jay Sebring and Sharon Tate the night followers of Charles Manson slaughtered them. These screen icons have stood the test of time because they were authentic. Their images were not tailored by publicists. What you saw was what you got, and we still can’t get enough.

Why do shows have to kill off anyone? Question: Regarding Lasalle’s departure from NCIS: New Orleans: Why do TV shows have to kill off anyone? Just have a character decide to move on to explore other opportunities. Then if they decide to come back, it’s less demeaning to the audience’s intelligence than pretending they never died. (See Ziva on NCIS, Bobby from way back on Dallas.) —Claire Matt Roush: Given that Dallas never really recovered from that absurd Bobby-inthe-shower moment, and that NCIS at least lived up to the old TV rule that “if you don’t see the body, they’re probably not really dead” with Ziva’s hardly unexpected return, in this case we do need to accept the fact that Lasalle (Lucas Black) isn’t coming back, which was the actor’s choice. Also the producers’, who when dealing with Black’s desire to leave wanted to give him a significant, heroic exit that would have an impact on the show and its ensemble going forward. When you ask why a show has to kill off anyone, my answer will always be that in the perilous world these shows portray, there are no stakes if everyone is seen as immortal. While it’s unlikely that Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Pride (Scott Bakula) or any other series lead will ever take the fall, shows like this must occasionally grapple with loss — preferably not reversible — to even have a shred of credibility.

2 Minot (N.D.) Daily News, TRADING POST, December 3, 2019

BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL Companies that have been in business for a long time often have updated and changed the logo or slogan used in advertising. Collectors can usually identify the age of the ad from the words and pictures that were used. Cracker Jack was first sold in 1896 from a cart in Chicago. The mixture of popcorn, molasses and peanuts, sometimes called the first junk food in America, was very popular. It sold well at the Chicago World’s Fair and got even more notice when the familiar song sung at ball games said, “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack.” The company developed a box that held a single serving, added coupons for prizes in 1910, then small toys in 1912, and in 2013, a code that leads to an online puzzle or game. The box has pictured the sailor boy (the founder’s son) and his dog Bingo since 1918, often changing their looks. This 9-by-14-inch die-cut cardboard store sign pictures an early version of the sailor boy. It sold at a Kimball Sterling auction for $615. The early toys are popular with collectors, and there is even a Cracker Jack Collectors Association. The most expensive prize? The baseball card series from 1914-1915, worth over $100,000. Q. I have a Josef Originals “Doll of the Month” figurine for the month of July. She’s holding a gray kitten in her left hand. A gold and black sticker on the front of her dress says “July.” A second

sticker says “Josef Originals.” Some of the sticker is gone. The hang tag has a little poem. What is the value of the doll? A. Muriel Joseph George began making ceramic figurines in the basement of her home in California in 1945. A printer’s error on the first labels changed the spelling from “Joseph” to “Josef” and that became the company name. Production moved to Japan in 1962. The company was sold several times beginning in 1982. Copies of some of the original figures were made in Taiwan. The company closed in 2011. The value of your figurine is $25 to $40. Q. I saved your article on cleaning collectibles and find it very helpful. I have a lovely lacquered tray on a stand that has several dull spots. We lived in Japan for five years and bought the tray there. At some point, my cleaning help used a rag that probably had polish of some sort on it. How can I restore the finish? A. Lacquer should be kept out of strong light, which can dull the finish. It should be dusted with a feather duster, not a cloth that might have residual polish on it or one that could scratch the surface. Sources online suggest using carnauba wax and a lambswool buffer to restore damaged pieces, but if only some of the finish is damaged, this isn’t a good idea. If it’s a piece you love and want to keep on display, it would be worth taking the tray to someone who restores antiques. A good restoration by an amateur is almost impossible on lacquer.

Q. A porcelain group showing a wicker basket with four babies’ faces peeking out from under the lid has been in my family for years. The basket is actually a box with a removable lid. It’s decorated with leaves and a lock and key and is 9 1/2 inches long by 8 inches high and 6 inches deep. A very lightly impressed mark with a rounded top is on the bottom. Can you provide any information on it as well as possible value? It is in perfect condition. A. Gebruder Heubach, or Heubach Brothers, was a firm known for bisque dolls and doll heads. It operated in Lichten, Germany, from 1840 to about 1938. They also made bisque figurines beginning in the 1880s and glazed figurines in the 1900s. Heubach made the rare “Four Babies in a Basket” figural bisque group about 1910. Even more rare is the largersized basket, like yours. It’s prized for the realistic-looking wicker and baby faces with intaglio eyes, sculpted hair, molded teeth, blushing cheeks and chubby arms. A Gebruder Heubach mark, the sunburst over initials G and H that was registered in 1882, is incised on the bottom. We’ve seen a few sell from $1,300 to $3,000. But be careful. Modern reproductions have been made in Germany from the

1940s using original Heubach molds. Many have the same markings and can be very difficult to tell apart from originals. Look for crude, less detailed decoration and paint, or an incised mark that is less distinct. If you have questions about yours, an auction house that specializes in dolls can help. TIP: Dust glass Christmas ornaments with a feather duster.

Salvation Army Capts. John and Faith Woodard, pictured with a kettle at Dakota Square Mall on Monday, said volunteers are needed for the kettle campaign this season.

Volunteers needed for kettle campaign: Salvation Army hopes to raise $103,000 this season to help needy

Calling all bell ringers! Salvation Army Capt. John Woodard said the organization’s kettle campaign is in need of volunteers for the holiday season. People who are willing to volunteer for a few hours can sign up at Woodard said bell ringers will be stationed at all of the Marketplace Foods sites in Minot, along with CashWise Foods, Scheels and JC Penney at Dakota Square Mall, Home of Economy, Kmart, Hobby Lobby and Walmart. The bell ringing campaign will run through Dec. 24. Organizers hope to raise $103,000 during this holiday season. Woodard said the funds raised during the campaign go to support operations and social services provided by the Salvation Army throughout the year, such as the food pantry, help with utility payments or gas vouchers. Other drives support other needs during the holiday season. The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program is also set up at different sites in the city and helps provide gifts for underprivileged kids. Trees are set up at different locations and people can pick an ornament off the tree, which includes the age and sex of an underprivileged child, along with his or her Christmas wishes. Then the donors can purchase presents and return the unwrapped gifts to the location of the angel tree or at the Salvation Army church at 315 Western Avenue in Minot. Christmas gift Distribution Day will be Dec. 17 and Dec. 19 at the Salvation Army Church at 315 Western Avenue, said Woodard.

they go home,” he said. “I think we need to talk about the people that have the nontraditional lives – where they’re not getting off until midnight or 11 o’clock at night. “I would support the freedom of the business owner to decide whether they want to be open until 2 a.m. If they don’t want to be open until 2 a.m., they sure don’t have to be,” added Lakoduk, who noted he closes his business at 11 p.m. Monday through Wednesday if there’s no customers. Sherri McGlaughlin with The Spot said she would like the option to be open. She said she might choose not to open beyond 1 a.m. on a regular basis but would like the option when hosting pool tournaments. “It causes people not to come here and stay in hotel rooms,” she said of the 1 a.m. bar closing. McGlaughlin also said limiting the closing time doesn’t address over-consumption. “You aren’t stopping people, necessarily, from drinking. You stop them from drinking at my bar, which we cut people off or monitor what they’re drinking,” she said. Jason Huus with Broadway Liquor, said he would feel it necessary to open his bar until 2 a.m. if permitted by city ordinance. “Personally, I don’t want to. But if everybody else is going to do it, we’ll do it,” he said. “That adds seven more hours to our lives, which are also nontraditional. Whatever happens, happens, but that’s what changes our lives.” Cindy Sessions of Minot asked the council to give the matter more consideration.

Christmas cheer for Minot AFB airmen: Cookies needed for annual Airmen Cookie Drive

It’s time to bake cookies again for the annual event when the Minot community provides Christmas cookies to airmen at Minot Air Force Base. Collections in Minot for the annual Airmen Cookie Drive begin on Dec. 10. The cookies are distributed to the nearly 1,200 first-term airmen who live in the dorms on base. The airmen are between the ages of 18-20 and are required to live in the dorm. It is probably the first time they have been away from family for the holidays. Cookies also are delivered to airmen working during the holidays. The overall goal between the base and downtown is 1,200 dozen cookies, which means one dozen homemade holiday goodies per person for the first-term airmen. Baking cookies is just one small way the Minot community can show its appreciation to the men and women serving in the military, said Randy Hauck, chair of the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce’s Military Affairs Committee. He said they are asking community people to bake a few dozen cookies, as homebaked cookies are really appreciated, and drop them off at the donation station at the Chamber office at 1020 20th Ave. SW. The drop off dates and times are Dec. 10-13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cookies will be delivered to the base where they will be boxed and distributed to airmen. The Minot Spouses’ Club at Minot AFB sponsors the annual Airmen Cookie Drive. For more information contact the Chamber at 852-6000.

City bars get an extra hour: Council votes to allow bars open longer

Minot bars will be able to decide whether to stay open until 2 a.m. The Minot City Council voted 4-3 to allow bars to remain open the extra hour after hearing from a few establishment operators. The bar hour provision was attached to an ordinance change allowing Thanksgiving on-sale alcohol, which the council passed two weeks ago on first reading. The council voted on the amendments on second reading to give final passage Monday. Council member Josh Wolsky proposed pushing back the closing of alcohol establishments from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. as allowed by state law. “This is one of those areas where I would rather not see Minot any more restrictive of commerce than the state of North Dakota, so I simply want to put us in line with the state and what is becoming a more common closing time in the larger cities in North Dakota,” he said. Jon Lakoduk with The Tap Room and Saul’s said some of his customers have requested a 2 a.m. closing because they live nontraditional lives. People such as nurses, servicemen and servicewomen and restaurant industry workers don’t always work hours that fit with a 1 a.m. bar closing, he said. “When they get their closing duties done, they don’t even have time to maybe unwind and relax, decompress a little bit before

6 Minot (N.D.) Daily News, TRADING POST, December 3, 2019

Curious Tradition Animal Help Now, a group that assists in “animal emergencies,” has gathered almost 160,000 signatures on a petition to repeal legislation allowing “Possum Drops” in North Carolina. In a number of communities in the state, the custom of putting an opossum in a transparent box, suspending it in the air and then slowly lowering it to the ground is a feature of New Year’s Eve celebrations. Organizers in Brasstown told the Raleigh News & Observer they ended its Possum Drop after the 2018 event because it’s “a hard job to do, and it’s time to move on,” but they maintained that the tradition does


“absolutely nothing to harm” the animal. Animal Help Now, however, is continuing its campaign against the state statute that makes it legal for people to treat opossums however they wish between the dates of Dec. 29 and Jan. 2.

Bright Ideas

— Maybe they’re betting no woman will reveal what she weighs in public, but the Fusion Club in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is offering women free drink credits based on their weight. For example, a woman who weighs 150 pounds would receive about $18.50 in free cocktails. Anil Kumar, spokesman for the club, told Insider that


while they have a scale behind the bar, they will also accept a woman’s word about what she weighs. “They can just write the weight on a paper and give it to the bartender discreetly,” he said. “Very simple, no strings attached. We wanted the ladies to surprise their partners and friends that it’s good to gain weight!” — A 16-year-old boy was detained by U.S. Border Patrol agents on Nov. 17 after an agent saw him hiding in brush about a mile north of the Otay Mesa Point of Entry near San Diego. Authorities said the teenager had a remote-control car with him, along with two large duffel bags stuffed with


50 packages of methamphetamines, weighing more than 55 pounds and worth more than $106,000. Border Patrol spokesman Theron Francisco told The San Diego Union-Tribune that authorities believe the car was used to carry the bundles across the border, making many trips through the bollard-style fence from the south side and driving to the teen on the north side. The boy was charged with drug smuggling and held in Juvenile Hall.

Yeah, No

If you’re passing through the seaside city of Fukuoka, Japan, here’s a tip for a cheap hotel: A night in room No. 8 at the Asahi Ryokan will cost you just $1. And your privacy. In return for the low rate, your entire stay in your room will be livestreamed on YouTube. Hotel manager Tetsuya Inoue told CNN on Nov. 20 that while the world can watch the room’s guests, there is no audio, so conversations and phone calls can remain private. Also, the bathroom is out of camera range. And, of course, guests can turn out the lights. “Our hotel is on the cheaper side,” Inoue said, “so we need some added value, something special that everyone will talk about.”

Bodybuilder Kirill Tereshin, 23, a former Russian soldier also known as Popeye, underwent surgery in Moscow in mid-November after doctors told him that the petroleum jelly he had been injecting into his biceps to increase their size might result in the amputation of his arms.

Suspicions Confirmed

Over the past five years, 12 separate bundles of cash, totaling nearly $45,000, have turned up on sidewalks in the quiet, beachside English village of Blackhall Colliery, posing a mystery for local Detective Constable John Forster. “These bundles are always ... discovered by random members of the public who have handed them in,” Forster told 9News, although he did admit he suspects some bundles have not been turned over to police. Officials have no evidence of a crime committed related to the bundles, usually containing about 2,000 pounds apiece. After a period of time, if no one claims them, the folks who discovered the bundles will get to keep them.

After the death of their uncle, Sifiso Justice Mhlongo, in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, Thandaza Mtshali and Thobeka Mhlongo ran into trouble trying to settle a claim on his life insurance. According to The Daily Star, Old Mutual required confirmation the man had passed away and delayed payment because they were waiting for “additional assessments.” So on Nov. 19, the women went to the funeral home, retrieved their uncle’s body and took it to the company’s local office. “They said they had paid the money into our bank account and we wanted to be sure,” Mtshali said, “so we left the body at their office and went to check at the bank.” When they had their money, they returned the body to the funeral home, and Mr. Mhlongo now rests in a family burial plot. Old Mutual pronounced the incident “most unsettling,” and promised a full investigation, but Muzi Hlengwa, spokesman for the National Funeral Practitioners Association of South Africa, said the matter was far from over: “The rituals that were supposed to be done to move the body from one place to another were not done. The soul of that man is still left at the Old Mutual, so they will have to cover the costs of performing these rituals.”

Compelling Explanation

Police and firefighters in Liberty, Ohio, were called to the Liberty Walmart on the afternoon of Nov. 16 to find a car on fire in the parking lot, reported WFMJ. Owner Stephanie Carlson, 40, told them there was a can of gas in the trunk and she had lighted a candle to get rid of the smell, but she later admitted she had poured gas on the seats and started the fire with a lighter because the car was dirty and there was a problem with the front wheel. The car belonged to her husband, who said he had been looking for her all day, and also told officers she had allegedly been found Send your weird news huffing mothballs and paint items with subject line WEIRD thinner recently.
