For a Halloween party in 1947, Ingrid Bergman decided to masquerade as a witch. She made herself up until she was satisfied she was absolutely unrecognizable, and allowed a photographer [Bud Graybill] to record the transformation. In her disguise she could not resist the temptation to pay a call on Alfred Hitchcock, who was ailing and confined to bed. “When Mrs. Hitchcock answered the door,” recalls Joe Steele, Ingrid’s agent at the time, “we signaled her not to say anything, and she took us up to the master’s bedroom. Hitchcock was lying there with his eyes closed. He opened them, took one look at the witch hovering over him, and said, calmly, ‘What are you doing here, Ingrid?’”

Back on the Radar of the Day: Anti-Semitic Elmo is Back in Court for Trying to Extort Girl Scouts
Hide your kids, because the infamous anti-Semitic Elmo is back in the spotlight. Dan Sandler, the disturbing New York City street performer who has earned notoriety for spewing hate speech against Jews, is currently facing charges for a $2 million extortion scheme against the Girl Scouts of America. In a series of bizarre e-mails, the fifty-year-old man threatened his ex-boss at Girl Scouts (that’s right, he once temped as a programmer for them) that he would try to ruin the organization’s name by accusing them of running an underage prostitution ring under a rather unsavory name, which happens to be a self-reference to the illegal website that he was running in Cambodia before his arrest in 1999. In exchange for his silence, Sandler reportedly demanded either a $150,000 telecommuting job or $2 million in cash.
“Enchanted River - Phillipines
‘NO ONE HAS EVER REACHED ITS BOTTOM’
Enchanted River is found in the Phillipines. It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including scuba divers have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear.
They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00pm, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.”
