The front-page headline of the Liverpool Evening Express on July 6, 1957,
read “MERSEYSIDE SIZZLES,” in reference to the heat wave then gripping
not just northern England, but all of Europe. The same headline could well
have been used over a story that received no coverage at all that day: The
story of the first encounter between two Liverpool teenagers named John
Lennon and Paul McCartney. Like the personal and professional relationship
it would lead to, their historic first meeting was a highly charged combination
of excitement, rivalry and mutual respect.

It’s easy to assume that John and Paul would eventually have met on some
other day had a mutual friend not chosen that hot and humid Saturday to
make the introduction. But as much as they had in common, the two boys
lived in different neighborhoods, went to different schools and were nearly
two years apart in age.

Only John was scheduled to perform publicly on July 6, 1957. The occasion
was the annual Woolton Parish Church Garden Fete, a parade and outdoor
fair at which John and his Quarrymen Skiffle Group had been invited to play.

A NEW MOVIE RATING ON THIS DAY IN 1984

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), which oversees the
voluntary rating system for movies, introduces a new rating, PG-13 on
this day in 1984.

The initial rating categories were G (appropriate for all ages), M (for
mature audiences, but all ages admitted), R (persons under 16 not
admitted without an accompanying adult) and X (no one under 17
admitted). The M category was eventually changed to PG (parental
guidance suggested), the R age limit was also raised to 17 and on
July 1, 1984, the PG-13 category was added to indicate film content
with a “higher level of intensity.” According to the MPAA, the content
of a PG-13 film “may be inappropriate for a children under 13 years
old” and “may contain very strong language, nudity (non-explicit),
strong, mildly bloody violence or mild drug content.”

The Georgia Mansion That Inspired “Gone With the Wind”


(Fox News) – “Take a good look my dear. It’s an historic moment you can tell
your grandchildren about,” Rhett Butler told Scarlett O’Hara in the 1939 flick
“Gone with the Wind,” as the “old South” fell.

Interested buyers – and fans of the beloved but controversial film – can take
the same advice in sizing up a gorgeous Georgia mansion with a special connection to the legendary movie, with auction bids opening on July 4 at
$1 million.
