Children fleeing an American napalm strike 1972, A group of terrified children runs down a highway near Trang Bang. The girl in the middle had ripped off her napalm-burned clothing. This Pulitzer Prize winner was called a fake by U.S. General William Westmoreland, who suggested the girl in the picture had been burned “in a hibachi accident.”

Madonna 2000, she has built a $600-million empire by continually re-inventing herself for public consumption, but her greatest transformation—into a mother—has been played out largely in private. After bearing her first child, Lourdes, with personal trainer Carlos Leon, Madonna hung out in London, adopted an English accent, and tapped Brit director Guy Ritchie to father number two, Rocco, shown here hiding in Madonna’s very pregnant belly. After he was born, Madonna transformed herself once again: into a wife, when she made the whole thing official by marrying Ritchie.

Street execution of a Vietcong prisoner taken by Eddie Adams1968, for many Americans certain photographs came to symbolize the brutality of Vietnam War. One was Adam’s picture of a South Vietnamese police chief, Colonel Nguyen Ngoc Loan, shooting a Vietcong prisoner in the head point blank range in the streets of Saigon. It was in the midst of the wild street fighting during the Tet offensive, when the Vietcong were sweeping through the cities of South Vietnam. The picture won a 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Adams, who took it for the Associated Press. Ironically, he later became a friend of Loan’s and often attempted to explain the context for the brutal act that the picture alone could not provide: Vietcong guerrillas had recently massacred a South Vietnamese colonel, his wife and six children in their home.

Jackie Robinson steals home base taken by Ralph Morse 1955, Robinson’s gift for stealing bases was apparent from the time he became the first black player in the major leagues in 1947. To make this picture taken at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn during the 1955 World Series that pitted the Dodgers against the Yankees, Morse had a camera aimed down the third-base line that he operated with a foot switch. That left his hands free to hold a second camera for shots of other plays.

Richard Nixon 1993, he never made it easy to feel sorry for him. He was unrepentant after leaving the Oval Office in disgrace and stubborn in his attempts to keep his taped White House rants from the public. His steadfast wife, schoolteacher Pat Ryan, stood by him through it all, even when it was revealed that Tricky **** may have pulled a Slick Willy with Hong Kong hotel hostess Mariana Liu. Still, when his wife died—about six weeks before this photo was taken during a fishing trip off the coast of Long Island, where the coupled summered—it was clear to all that the old man was at sea. Eight months later, he died.

Brooke Shields, Michael Jackson, and Emmanuel Lewis 1984, “It’s the strangest friendship in Hollywood,” said a friend of Jackson’s, “a 25-year-old-man-child with a 13-year-old playmate.” Long before accusation of kiddy sex abuse surfaced against Jackson, his relationship with the 3’4” star of Webster raised plenty of eyebrows. The pair went everywhere together, with Jackson even carrying the 40-pound Lewis with him on “dates” with Brooke Shields, as seen here at the Grammy Awards. “If it wasn’t for Emmanuel,” Michael Jackson told his mother, “I’d go crazy.” Too late: In the mad, mad, mad world of Neverland, Jackson’s Encino, California, mansion, the two were often seen pretending to be Peter Pan characters and talking to a pet Llama in a language Jackson claimed the Llama understood

Dean Martin 1994, He arrives at his favorite Italian restaurant, La Famiglia, with a little help from the help: The once-robust crooner, now 76 and weighing only 120 pounds, dined alone that night while--just three mile away—former friend Frank Sinatra was celebrating his 80th birthday at a lavish, televised bash. Ol’ Blue Eyes had snubbed Deano ever since the legendary boozer pulled out of a 1988 Rat Pack reunion tour due to kidney problems. Sad and lonely, Martin visited La Famiglia often, ordering food but rarely touching it. “I want to die at La Famiglia with a scotch in one hand and a cigarette in the other,” he said during his final days. No such luck: In 1995, he succumbed to lung cancer and passed away quietly in his mansion.

Russian Peasant 1990, Ronald Reagan’s secret passion for fashion is revealed in this snapshot in which the former president models a cloth coat accessorized with a floral babushka and pitchfork. Actually, the subject is not the former commander-in-chief ---just an anonymous Russian farm woman who was unknowingly playing the Great Pretender. The photo was spotted by an eagle-eyed reader of The Enquirer, which published it for laugh.
