"Bell, Book and Candle" opens and Gene Kelly says he's taking a hit show to Broadway, "Flower Drum Song." 

"Bell, Book and Candle"

1958_1110_sports The 1958 Rams were nearly too popular.

That's one explanation for the Rams drawing only 95,082 to watch their 56-7 rout of the San Francisco 49ers. More than 100,000 fans had attended the previous week's game at the Coliseum, a victory over the Bears.  Another 10,000 were turned away at the door.

The Times' Cal Whorton reported that a Rams official thought some people had been scared away by the previous week's crowd. They missed another explosive display by the Rams, led by the running game.

Joe Marconi rushed for 121 yards, 109 of them in the first half, as the Rams built a 35-7 lead.
