Last week saw the passing of Deanna Durbin, the wholesome star of Depression-era films, who wryly called her image that of “Little Miss Fix-It Who Bursts into Song.” Her stardom was meteoric and for a short 12-year period, she was hugely popular. Both Winston Churchill and Anne Frank were fans. Durbin is shown here with her beloved dog Tippy, said to have been purchased at a pet store for $2.

Congratulations to Don Nelson on being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame today. One of many great stories about “Nellie” … late in his career, Nelson returned as coach of the Golden State Warriors. Soon after arriving, he introduced the “66 rule.” The impetus was Monte Ellis, a young second-year player drafted straight out of high school who was prone to sulking. When things didn’t go his way he’d pout, so Nelson created the “66 rule” — “I’m 66, and too bleeping old to take this crap …”
