One of the most famous images in film history comes from a movie that no one but silent movie nerds ever watches: in 1923's Safety Last. , Harold Lloyd hung from the hands of a clock that hung from a set that sat on top of 908 S. Broadway in Downtown LA, and swung into America's hearts. he became one of the richest comedians of the silent era and built Los Angeles's most ridiculously lavish movie star estate, Greenacres , in 1929. Safety Last. It was shot mainly in Hollywood and Downtown, and many of the places it features are still around today, incredibly, but Safety Last. (with a big debt to John Bengtson's Chaplin-Keaton-Lloyd film locations (and more) blog , which includes a handy Downtown walking tour among many other resources).
Data from 11 years of reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, plus numbers on car crashes from California's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System suggest that more accidents do happen when it's rainy (duh). The visualization below ( via CityLab ) shows that dry weather crashes (red lines) usually top out around 10 per hour, even during rush hour. But rainy weather crashes (blue lines) far surpass those numbers, coming close to 15 crashes in the three o'clock hour. " Those are all logical-sounding and may even be true, but there isn't a chart yet for cities that are famously soaked, like Seattle or Portland, or even a sort of middle ground city (any place not in the middle of a megadrought would do) to... But it's possible that there are more cars on the road in the rain, as people who otherwise would have walked, biked, or taken public transit decide to drive instead. The guy who made the graphic has been contacted by an employee of the NOAA who said that the organization is working on rolling out a similar analysis of the relationship between rain and traffic collisions, so there's still a chance this LA...
They are old men now in their 70s, two robbers who were famous long ago and now sport white hair, Butch and Sundance in twilight. Five decades ago, Jack Murphy (a. k. a. , “Murf the Surf”) and his partner Allan Kuhn were high-spirited beach boys who gave swimming lessons at Miami Beach hotels and had a lucrative second occupation—as jewel thieves. In 1964, bored with preying on wealthy divorcees and tourists, these athletic young men drove to Manhattan and pulled off the most audacious jewel heist of the last half-century. Climbing up the stone walls of the American Museum of Natural History on the evening of October 29, 1964, they broke in through a window and stole priceless gems from the J. P. Morgan jewel collection: the Star of India sapphire, the DeLong Star... Murphy, now garrulous and robust at age 77, explains, “Just like mountain climbers and skiers, as a jewel thief, you go for the challenge. With the jewels nowhere to be found, an ambitious 23-year-old Wellesley graduate, Nora Ephron, landed her first front-page story for the New York Post by sneaking into the hotel where the thieves had stayed. Only after a bizarre series of events—including a Miami chase scene that included Kuhn jumping out a hotel window, double-dealing by a fence, and ransom money paid by.
