His films include “The Tenderfoot,” “Fireman Save My Child,” “Elmer the Great,” “Alibi Ike,” “The Gladiator,” “Beware, Spooks!”, “Shut My Big Mouth,” “Pin-Up Girl,” “The Tender Years,” “Show Boat,” and “Itʹs a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”; perhaps his most memorable role was that of confused millionaire Osgood Fielding III in the classic Billy Wilder comedy, “Some Like It Hot.” Brownʹs 1959 autobiography was titled “Laughter Is a Wonderful Thing.” He died on July 6, 1973.

In 1930, The Silly Symphony film, “Midnite in a Toy Shop”, is completed.

In 1942, Spike Jones and the City Slickers recorded “Der Fuhrerʹs Face”. All the disc jockeys played the song because it was the start of World War II. The song dated back to 1936 when it was a tune originally written by British composer Oliver G. Wallace for the Walt Disney cartoon “Nutzi Land”, and was inspired by hearing the Slickerʹs sendup. The song stayed at number three on the pop charts for ten weeks.

In 1982, On “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC, Pro wrestlers Andy Kaufman and Jerry Lawlor fight on-air. This happened 15 years ago, so its popularity owes, much like the Glover incident, to word-of-mouth as much as anything. It started with Andyʹs provocative taunts, which led to Lawlor knocking Kaufman to the floor with a blow to the head. After a commercial break, Kaufman screamed obscenities at Lawlor and finished his tirade by throwing a cup of coffee on the enraged wrestler, who chased Kaufman out of the studio. A bewildered host remarked, “Iʹm not sure about any of those words, but you can be darned sure that FCC regulations prohibit throwing coffee.”

Arguably one of the most talked-about moments in all of television came at the end of a very scattered, and very funny, edition of “Late Night.” A wigged-out Glover, wearing uncomely attire and enormous platform shoes, stepped onstage and began whining like a lunatic. The panel lasted only a couple of minutes, but to Letterman it mustʹve seemed an eternity. Finally, Glover, growing more nervous by the second, stood up, weakly flexed a bicep, then made his famous declaration: “These are mine…I can kick!” And with that, he swung around and — nearly kicked Dave in the head. The host vanished, the show went to a commercial, and when play resumed, Crispin was gone…“He came very close to denting my head with those giant shoes,” Dave said. The next nightʹs episode opened with Paul waking Dave from a bad dream; only it wasnʹt a dream, said Paul, Glover really did try to kick him. “What a jerk,” said Letterman. Glover later apologized.
