Great Buzzkills In History Part 1

Carrie A. Nation (November 25, 1846 – June 9, 1911) was a member of the temperance movement—which opposed alcohol in pre-Prohibition America—particularly noted for promoting her viewpoint through vandalism. On many occasions, Nation would enter an alcohol-serving establishment and attack the bar with a hatchet. She has been the topic of numerous books, articles and even a 1966 opera by Douglas Moore, first performed at the University of Kansas.
Nation was a large woman nearly 6 feet (180 cm) tall and weighing 175 pounds (80 kg). She described herself as "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like,"[1] and claimed a divine ordination to promote temperance by smashing up bars.
The spelling of her first name is ambiguous and both Carrie and Carry are considered correct. Official records say Carrie which Nation used most of her life, but Carry was used by her father in the family Bible. Upon beginning her campaign against liquor in the early 20th century, she adopted the name Carry A. Nation mainly for its value as a slogan, and had it registered as a trademark in the state of Kansas. (Wikepedia)
You've got to admit, old Carrie had spunk. Check out the fictitious band the Carrie Nations in Russ Meyer's film of 1970, "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls". Deliciously bad.

The Bethlem Royal Hospital of London, which has been variously known as St. Mary Bethlehem, Bethlem Hospital, Bethlehem Hospital and Bedlam, was one of Europe's first and most notorious psychiatric hospitals. The word Bedlam has long been used for lunatic asylums in general, and later for a scene of uproar and confusion.

Ring of Fire

Ray Charles does Johnny proud on this fine rendition.

The story of love and hate

Don't get me wrong, the "Do the Right Thing" version of the story of Love & Hate is good, but Mitchum in "Night of the Hunter" takes the cake for his portrayal of a straight up creep.
