The summer of 1969, which saw the first moonwalk, Woodstock and the Manson murders, was marked by another watershed moment: a police raid on a Mafia-run Greenwich Village gay bar called the Stonewall Inn that would spark a three-day riot and, in many eyes, launch the gay rights movement. This rebellion — it's been called the "Rosa Parks moment for gays" — and the decades of oppression that led up to it are vividly chronicled in the documentary "Stonewall Uprising."

John Smith, a popular actor in the 1950s who humorously adapted the common name as his stage name, has died. He was 63. Smith died Jan. 25 in his Los Angeles home, said Richard Lamparski, a Hollywood historian who had profiled Smith in one of his volumes titled "Whatever Became of . . . ?" The cause of death may have been a combination of cirrhosis and heart problems, said Smith's former wife, actress Luana Patten Smith. Smith shared top billing with Robert Fuller on the television series "Laramie", which ran from 1959 to 1963.
