5th Avenue (candy)

The candy bar was reportedly introduced in 1936 by Luden’s, at the time a subsidiary of Food Industries of Philadelphia.[3] This date is uncertain because information about this product has been subject to misinformation[4] from The Hershey Company for marketing and perhaps legal reasons.[5] It is difficult to find marketing material for this product before 1962.[6]

Get fresh with Rotten Tomatoes’ perfect-scoring movies

We go down a Wikipedia Wormhole with: List of Films With A 100-Percent Rating On Rotten Tomatoes

Strangest fact: While the list includes some of the greatest and most revered films ever made—Citizen Kane, Ben-Hur, Hiroshima Mon Amour, Singin’ In The Rain—it also includes, as Wikipedia puts it, “entries with dozens of positive reviews which are considered surprising to some experts.” Some are controversial picks like The Birth Of A Nation, D.W. Griffith’s unquestionably groundbreaking yet unapologetically racist film from 1915. Some are TV movies that only got a handful of reviews by film critics, including Bender’s Big Score, and 24: Redemption. And there are simply movies one wouldn’t expect, like 1971’s Pam Grier women-in-prison movie The Big Doll House, Sidney Poitier/Tom Berenger 1988 thriller Shoot To Kill, 2003’s dark revenge flick King Of The Ants, 2006 horror movie The Gravedancers, or Disney’s 1959 reinforcin’ o’ the stereotypes Darby O’Gill And The Little People.

Putinism

Although there had not been giant statues of Putin put up across the country (like those of Joseph Stalin before), he had the honor of being the only Russian leader to have had a pop song written about him: “I want a man like Putin”, which hit the charts in 2002.

GIOSTRA DEL SARACINO
@gruppomusici_arezzo
•••••••
The Saracen joust of Arezzo (Giostra ad burattum) is an ancient game of chivalry. It dates back to the Middle Ages.
It was born as an exercise for military training. This tournament was regularly held in Arezzo between the 16th century and the end of the 17th century, when memorable jousts in baroque style were organized. The game went on for the whole Modern Age, having an important social function within the urban community. The joust was indeed a great public event during the visit of important authorities (sovereigns, princes, etc.), or it was used to make certain civil feasts more solemn (e.g. carnivals and nobless weddings). The joust – which became a typical tradition of Arezzo at the beginning of the 17th century – declined progressively during the 18th century and eventually disappeared, at least in its “noble” version. After a brief popular revival between the 18th and 19th century, the joust was interrupted after 1810 to reappear only in 1904 in the wake of the Middle Ages reappraisal operated by Romanticism. Finally, the joust was definitely restored in 1931 as a form of historical reenactment set in the 14th century, and quickly acquired a competitive character.
