Oct. 19, 1960: Casey Stengel, the most successful baseball manager of modern times, was fired by the New York Yankees Tuesday only because of his age and despite his heated insistence that at 70 he is "just as good as I ever was," The Times says. 

Note: I’ve actually seen “Not as a Stranger” (which is a pretty good book, as I recall) but “Studs Lonigan?”   I missed that one. On the jump, “College Confidential” with Steve Allen, Jayne Meadows and Mamie Van Doren.  And no, neither "Studs Lonigan" nor "College Confidential" is on Netflix.
