  • Notes

    • Victor Jackson invented a lubricant for quieting squeaks in various piano parts. Called "VJ Lube," (after his initials VJ) this mixture is still in use today in 2004 by piano technicians. The recipe: One 7.5 oz jar Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, heated in a double boiler until liquid. Add as much talcum powder as the Vaseline will hold, making a thick mixture. Add 1 teaspoon lanolin, stir well. Store in small 35mm film cans. Use sparingly for lubing the pins and springs of pedals and trapwork. - Suzanne (2004)

      Tony Curtis promoted his upcoming 1955 film, "Six Bridges to Cross." He said it will be opening on January 19, 1955. He also said it was based on the Brinks Robbery in Boston, then quickly corrected himself by saying he wasn't supposed to say that! However, the cat was already let out of the bag. The famous 1950 Brinks robbery occurred in Boston when a team of people wearing Navy pea jackets and rubber masks robbed a Brinks armored car terminal of $2.7 million in cash and securities. The culprits were eventually caught. - Suzanne (2004)
