TIP OF THE SPEAR
See the blood? I just killed Raquel Welch.


Which is the best prehistoric lost world adventure ever filmed? Is it One Million Years B.C. with Raquel Welch or When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth with Victoria Vetri? Don't get us wrong. Both are complete bullshit. Both show humans and dinosaurs living together, which never happened unless you're a fundamentalist who believes what you see in biblical museums. But apart from the scientific silliness of both movies, which is best? It's a question like Beatles versus Stones, California white versus Spanish red, or Kanye West versus Anderson Paak. It shows who you are. What you're made of. We're going with Vetri and Ruled the Earth, because the filming of Dinosaurs was basically a longform orgy and Vetri admits it. Also she shot her terrible husband in the chest, and we guess the only reason she used a gun was because her spear was in the other room. Total badass. This photo is from 1970.

PYRRHIC VICTORIA
Former Playboy centerfold gets nine years in prison for shooting her husband.


Actress and former Playboy model Victoria Vetri, aka Victoria Rathgeb, aka Angela Dorian pleaded no contest to attempted voluntary manslaughter earlier this week and was sentenced to nine years in prison. Last October Vetri was arrested after shooting her husband in the chest during an argument, and since then has been in custody, unable to produce the million-plus dollars needed to make bail.

Vetri claims her husband, Bruce Rathgeb, precipitated the shooting by slapping her in the face. Rathgeb, of course, says no slap was involved and his wife is simply a verbally abusive lunatic who was constantly accusing him of cheating. Vetri could have gotten life in prison if convicted of attempted murder, the original charge, so being offered a chance to accept the lesser offense of attempted manslaughter represents a victory—though a Pyrrhic one, without doubt. We’ll close the door on Miss Vetri with a shot of her in 1967, when she was a young centerfold calling herself Angela Dorian and could never have imagined, we’re pretty sure, what life had in store for her.

EMPHASIZING HER POINT
Former model and actress Victoria Vetri shoots her husband.
 
1966 Playboy Playmate of the Year, former b-movie star and Pulp Intl. favorite Victoria Vetri, aka Angela Dorian, was arrested for attempted murder yesterday after shooting her husband Bruce Rathgeb in the chest. The husband survived, and Vetri/Dorian is free on bail. Details are still sketchy, but we’d say Vetri has a significant legal problem. We can hear it now:
 
Prosecutor: “Ms. Vetri, will you kindly look at exhibit C and tell the jury what you’re holding in your hands in the photo?”
 
Vetri: *mutters unintelligibly*
 
Prosecutor: “I’m sorry, can you speak up please? I don’t believe the jury heard you. I ask again Ms. Vetri, or is it Mrs. Rathgeb? Frankly, I’m not sure what to call you. What's in your hands in the photo?
 
Vetri: It’s a publicity photo. It isn’t re—
 
Prosecutor: If it pleases the Court, instruct the witness to answer the question.
 
Judge: Answer the question lady.
 
Vetri: “Um, it’s a prop spea—“
 
Prosecutor: “A SPEAR! Ladies and gentlemen of the jury! A spear! A! Spear! Used for stabbing, cutting, and inflicting grievous bodily harm. This is a woman who has used deadly weapons before, indeed, who is comfortable with such weapons in her hands. We submit that the defendant is a violent maniac who takes pleasure in killing. State rests.”

1912—Piltdown Man Discovered
A hominid fossil known as Piltdown Man is found in England's Piltdown Gravel Pit by paleontologist Charles Dawson. The fragments are thought by many experts of the day to be the fossilized remains of a hitherto unknown form of early man, but in 1953 it is discovered to be a hoax composed of a human skeleton and an orangutan's jawbone. The identity of the Piltdown forger remains unknown, but suspects have included Dawson, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Arthur Conan Doyle and others.
