calling back the past

Several months ago, I came across a submission by Linda Jenista Smith that immediately captured my imagination. She told a remarkable tale about how an article her father, Eugene, wrote for Reminisce about his World War II service unlocked the mystery of another man’s military experience—and brought a son, Charles Micheals, closer to the father he missed and longed to know more about. Linda and Charles are so grateful for their newfound connection that we wanted to offer the same chance to others. Their story inspired us to bring back a beloved Reminisce feature that has been dormant for a few years: military Roll Call. You’ll find Linda’s article, along with the hopeful pleas of others who’d like to find service members, in “Roll Call Reunions,” beginning on page 30. Be…

GOTTA DANCE! Each year of the 1950s offered movie musicals filled with catchy songs and spectacular dancing—with 1954 being especially tuneful. Tap your memory of the melodic delights that graced screens that year. 1 Vincente Minnelli directed this story of two Americans who find a mystical Scottish town. 2 This star revolutionized the movie musical in the 1950s with innovative choreography and complex dance sequences. 3 Judy Garland starred in this remake of a 1937 drama about an actress who becomes more famous than her mentor. 4 Michael Kidd put dancers through their paces in this musical set in the wilds of Oregon. 5 This seasonal favorite has Bing Crosby singing the top-selling holiday song of all time. 6 Can you name the redheaded comedian who was Bing’s co-star in that holiday musical? 7 Dorothy Dandridge was the…

players’ conference off the field

My friend Randy Story and I were at a restaurant in West Plains, Missouri, when he nudged me. “There’s Preacher,” he said, referring to pitcher Preacher Roe, who played with the St. Louis Cardinals, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1938 to 1954. Randy was a teacher at West Plains schools and Roe’s son was on the school board. Randy had met Roe before and knew of my affinity for baseball history. We debated about interrupting Roe’s dinner. I knew I might anger him, but it was a lifetime chance to talk baseball with one of the greats. So we barged in on the former player’s meal. Roe was gracious and seemed appreciative that someone remembered his career. I asked him about his Brooklyn days playing with Jackie Robinson, and…
