Bette admitted, “It was so bizarre to have been these characters 27 years ago. And to put all that gear on…it was so bizarre because we fell into exactly the same relationship we had and the same style of behaving on screen that we had 27 years ago. As if we had been off for a weekend!”

Lawsuit By Michael Jackson Accuser Dismissed By Judge A Second Time

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

A judge has formally dismissed the lawsuit by one of the accusers of Michael Jackson presented in the documentary Leaving Neverland. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young found that James Safechuck, 42, could not sue the two corporations that Jackson owned. Additionally, he says Safechuck’s lawsuit did not demonstrate that he had a relationship with either of these two corporations, MJJ Productions Inc., and MJJ Ventures Inc.

Jackson estate attorneys Howard Weitzman and Jonathan Steinsapir have since released a statement on the decision. “We are pleased that the court dismissed Mr. Safechuck’s case by ruling that he had no grounds to pursue such a lawsuit,” they say.

This is the second time a case from Safechuck has been thrown out. A judge dismissed it back in 2017, but an appeals court revived it this year when California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a new law, which gave those who allege childhood sexual abuse longer to file lawsuits.

The other accuser of the two, Wade Robson, also had one of his lawsuits appealed and it remains active currently. Despite any of this, the Jackson estate maintains that the accusations are false and no form of child abuse ever happened.

The Leaving Neverland documentary showcased the alleged child abuse that when on behind closed doors between Jackson and Safechuck and Robson. The official Jackson estate is suing HBO over airing the documentary.

Whatever Happened To Charmian Carr From ‘The Sound Of Music’?

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Charmian Carr is best known for her role as Liesl, the eldest child of the seven children of the von Trapp family in 1965’s The Sound of Music. Well, she’s actually best known for this role because it was her only major acting role in her lifetime. Her family was full of the influence of the arts, both her parents being involved in vaudeville and musicianship.

In addition, her sisters were also both actresses, so it was destined for Carr as well. Her family would soon move to Los Angeles when she was just 10 and actually took part in sports such as basketball and volleyball. She was also a cheerleader. “She had never had a singing lesson and had never tried to act,” according to Wikipedia.

What happened to Charmian Carr?

Just before she signed to work on The Sound of Music, Carr was attending San Fernando Valley State College, studying speech therapy and philosophy, and working for a doctor. It was actually her actress mother who set up the audition for her, despite having no true arts training prior.

“I was going to college and getting extra spending money by modeling in fashion shows in one of the stores. One of the girls who modeled with me knew that Robert Wise, producer-director of The Sound of Music had been conducting a four-month search for someone to play the part of 16-year-old Liesl,” Carr notes in a 1964 interview. “My friend, without my knowing it, sent in my picture and explained in a note that I sang and danced. I received a call from Mr. Wise to come for a tryout. It took me completely by surprise.”

The entirety of filming The Sound of Music was generally very enjoyable for Carr. However, fans of the film may remember this behind-the-scenes mishap that caused her an injury. Fans may remember the dance scene between Liesl and Rolf in the gazebo, where the costumers actually had forgotten to put no-slip pads on her shoes. As a result, she slid through a window of the gazebo during filming and injured her ankle. She had to continue the dance scene in agonizing pain. Ouch!

When did Charmian Carr die?

Carr had one additional role in 1966 in the series ABC Stage 67 alongside actor Anthony Perkins. It was after that role that she would retire from acting altogether aside from appearing as herself in documentaries about The Sound of Music.

Beyond acting, she owned an interior design firm, Charmian Carr Designs, and wrote two books, Forever Liesl and Letters to Liesl. Carr sadly died from complications related to frontotemporal dementia at the age of 73 in 2016. Prior to her death, she was greatly involved with Sound of Music reunions and even recorded “Edelweiss” with the great-grandchildren of the von Trapps on the album Dream a Little Dream by the von Trapps and Pink Martini in 2014. We miss her so much!

The cover artists featured musicians from all over the world putting their own musical spin on Dolly’s songs. One band called Love Raptor performed what Dolly called a “rock, kinda funky” twist to “9 to 5.” An artist from the UK named Seb Skelly covered the same song on his trumpet. And Dutch girl group O’G3NE put their own spin on “Jolene.”

Steve Knill covered Parton’s song “I Will Always Love You” and got a little emotional watching her reaction.

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Tom Bosley played the patriarch Howard Cunningham, married to Marion Cunningham. In real life, he was married to Patricia Carr-Bosley. In one episode, she actually guest-starred on Happy Days. Do you remember the episode titled “Howard’s Bowling Buddy”?

In the episode, Howard and Marion bowl together perfectly in a league. However, Marion gets injured and Howard has to find a new bowling partner. His new bowling buddy is a bank teller named Fern… aka Patricia.

In the episode, Fonzie is suspicious of Fern and doesn’t want her to come between the Cunninghams. Of course, alls well that ends well but it is interesting to know that the actress was married to Tom Bosley in real life! That must have been an exciting episode to film because they were already so comfortable with each other.

Tom and Patricia got married in 1980, two years after his first wife died from a terminal illness. All of this happened during the filming of Happy Days, which was between 1974 and 1984. Tom and Patricia were married for 30 years until his death in 2010.

He once said, “The most adverse thing I had to face was the loss of my first wife. After we lost her, I had to go through that extremely awkward period of being both a father and a mother. Then all of a sudden, getting over the loss of my wife and realizing that I had to go on, that life has to go on. And I went through that terrible phase of having to date.”

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

The official Graceland Instagram account always makes sure to feed the audience with fun facts about Elvis from time to time. One of the facts that was surprising to us was that Elvis didn’t sing on-screen in only one of the movies he starred in. Can you guess which one?

“Fun Facts: Did you know that “Charro!” is the only one of #ElvisPresley’s movies where his character does not sing on screen? #Elvis actually recorded two songs for the 1969 film, however, only the title song ended up being used in the movie,” the caption reads.

Fun Facts: Did you know that "Charro!" is the only one of #ElvisPresley's movies where his character does not sing on screen? #Elvis actually recorded two songs for the 1969 film, however, only the title song ended up being used in the movie. #ElvisPresleyFans #ElvisHistory

A post shared by Elvis Presley's Graceland (@visitgraceland) on Oct 15, 2020 at 12:28pm PDT

Charro! was a 1969 Western starring Elvis (in some mighty fine facial hair, may we add) and the film featured no songs other than the main title music. So, with that being said, Elvis didn’t sing at all. In the film, he plays a former outlaw called Jess Wade. Elvis also produced two other films that year, The Trouble with Girls and Change of Habit.

Prior to that big year of films, Elvis had just performed the ’68 comeback special and was ready to leave acting behind. He was intending to focus on music. But, it looks like the universe had other plans! Elvis’s last two films were music documentaries; 1970’s Elvis: That’s The Way It Is and 1972’s Elvis on Tour.

Elvis starred in a total of 31 feature films and two theatrically released concert documentaries (the ones we previously mentioned). While many will never forget him as The King of Rock and Roll, he certainly was a very gifted actor as well!
