    A policewoman plays duck-duck-goose with children in Harlem, NYC, New York, US in 1978. Photo taken by the legendary photographer Leonard Freed. Source: Reddit. This classic old-school photograph features an NYPD officer taking a break from chasing criminals to play an innocent game of Duck Duck Goose with a group of local kids spending their summer vacation on the streets of Harlem. Photojournalist Leonard Freed is the man responsible for capturing this awesome, smile-inducing moment in the summer of 1978.`

    `Alfred Hitchcock serving tea to Leo, the MGM Lion, 1957.

    `His companion here is none other than Leo the Lion, mascot for Hollywood film studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as well as its predecessors, Goldwyn Pictures. Leo was featured in the studio's production logo. Since 1916 there have been seven different lions used for the MGM logo. Only the current lion (pictured here), who has been in use since 1957 (a total of 60 years), actually bore the name Leo.`

    `A boy watching television for the first time from the shelf of a store in 1948`


    Don't let his young age fool you, everyone was equally fascinated with the magical box that was quickly dubbed "the home screen" upon its arrival.

    The late 1940s is when color television got its start in America but it wasn't really a commercially viable option for people until the early 1950s.

    Even black and white televisions weren't a common sight in people homes in the mid to late 40s. Only 0.5% of households in the United States had a television in 1946, but sales started to take off as the '50s neared.

    By 1954 that percentage jumped to 55.7% and by 1962, 90% of the population had their very own television set at home.

    `Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef in the company of a Spanish policeman during the shooting of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. (circa 1965)`




    Clint Eastwood came from a wealthy background but did so poorly in school that he was held back; rumor has it that he never actually graduated at all. He tried his hand at acting and now he's a legend.
    Between the years of 1954 and the 1960s, Clint had minor roles in numerous films and TV shows and was often uncredited. It wasn’t until the 70’s that his work finally received major and positive reviews. He had another turning point in 1971 when he made his debut as a director for the film Play Misty for Me; the New York Post praised his performance and skills as a director.

    `Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve hailing a cab back in 1981. `



    Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve became lifelong friends after meeting and rooming together at Julliard back in 1973.

    Then, in 1978, they both became aliens that crash-landed into popular culture; Williams as Mork on the hit TV sitcom Mork & Mindy, and his best friend Reeve as the Kryptonian superhero himself, in Richard Donner’s film, Superman.


    Reeve later recalled first meeting Williams in his autobiography, Still Me: “I’d never seen so much energy contained in one person. He was like an un-tied balloon that had been inflated and immediately released.

    I watched in awe as he virtually caromed off the walls of the classrooms and hallways. To say that he was ‘on’ would be a major understatement.

    There was never a moment when he wasn’t doing voices, imitating teachers, and making our faces ache from laughing at his antics. His name, of course, was Robin Williams.”
