RIP VAN WINKLE starring Joseph Jefferson. 4 1/2 minutes
Filmed 115 years ago in 1896
It's pretty clear why Rip slept so long. He had several too many!

Margie Blake (Marjorie Woodworth), who wants to get married young and have two dozen kids, has a flat tire and traveling salesman Tom Wilson (Tom Brown), who believes in "loving 'em and leaving 'em" stops to help.
They soon discover they are polar opposites and dislike each other very much.

Alice's Wonderland, but NOT Alice in Wonderland! - 1923 (Walt Disney Studio)

Long before Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney had just Alice, (having no connection with Alice in Wonderland). She was played by Virginia Davis, as she interacted with cartoon characters. These shorts, of which there were 57, were soooo wonderful.....and I love them. This one was made in 1923 and has a very young Walt showing Alice around the studio...before the action begins.

W C Fields - The Dentist (1932)
One of a number of shorts that W.C. Fields made before he went into feature films. The scene where he extracts the woman's tooth may be one of the funniest he made, but a little risque. Although the Hayes Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 was in effect, it was pretty much voluntary until I think 1934. Anyway during the woman's tooth extraction, WC is between her legs when he works on her tooth, and she winds up with her feet in his pockets.

This is an absolutely wonderful 8 minute clip of My Three Sons, one of my very favorite 1960's series. This one from 1969.

Hollywood Squares (1979)
The Hollywood Squares with Little Anthony, Fabian, Bobby Vee, Connie Francis, Frankie Avalon, Patti Page, Martha Reeves and Dick Clark (1979)
Pity has been taken on WHS Oldtimers by limiting this clip to just 7 minutes.

1979 Television Montage

Jane Pauley news, some great commercials and a very young, 1970's coifed Alex Trebek hosting "High Rollers" all in 7:42. What more could a Washougal Oldtimer ask for?

PEG ENTWHISTLE : The Girl Who Jumped From the HOLLYWOOD Sign

In the years following her suicide, hikers and park rangers in Griffith Park have reported some pretty strange happenings in the vicinity of the Hollywood sign. Many have reported sightings of a woman dressed in 1930’s era clothing who abruptly vanishes when approached. She has been described as a very attractive, blond woman, who seems very sad. Could this be Peg’s ghost, still making her presence known? Could she also be linked to the pungent smell of gardenia perfume which has been known to overwhelm sight-seers in the park? Perhaps it is, as the gardenia scent was known to be Peg’s trademark perfume…

Author Gary Shaw - WHS '59


Gary Shaw, Washougal Class of 1959 is in the process of authoring a set of 6 books, titled The Eric English Chronicles, set in and around the Camas-Washougal area from the early 1960's through the present. I have attached a file that he sent me prefacing information about the books as well as introducing and relating a little about the main characters.... Also included is an outline of the happenings in the 19th Chapter of Book 1 intended for the  publishers. It is not the chapter itself. Here now is the author. Click on the orange to open.

Dick Schaefer (WHS '55) has written a new book that he has published on Amazon. Its' title is The Final Conflict, and a download to your Kindle is available for $4.99. If you do not have a Kindle, a free Kindle application is available for downloading to your PC that will allow you read the book on it.  Simply click on this link to get to Dick's book:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AJB3SD6

Here is a brief synopsis of the book.

A small town man is thrust into 11 days of conflict over Christmas of 1972, against the best air defense structure ever faced by strategic bombers to achieve President Nixon’s "Peace with Honor" exit strategy against North Viet Nam.
This is the Viet Nam "12 O’Clock High" told from the standpoint of the crew force flying the mission: telling the TRUE story----not the written history documented in the archives of the Strategic Air Command.

Dick informs me that his earlier book Mill Town is still available by mail for $15 including shipping from his address. Scroll down to the bottom of this main page for more information.

The following has nothing whatsoever to do with Washougal senior alumni or nostalgia. It is a small widget that connects every 10 seconds with a random webcam across the world. Some will work, some will not, but when they do, they work well, delivering real time moving images of sights around the world.
Simply click on the lettering name just below the image (not on the image itself as that will open an ad) and the webcam will open in a new larger window. It may take as much as a half minute to begin but when and if it does, it can be very rewarding....it does require a Java application which, if you don't have already, will be offered as a download right then and there.....it also works better with the Firefox browser than it does with Internet Explorer.
