>> charles: and now a page from our sunday morning almanac. today is purple heart appreciation day. the medal of honor is still the highest decoration. the purple heart is the oldest. this is what is looks like now, but is it began like this. the budget of military merit, an extraordinary piece of
9:19 am
american history. >> the badge of military merit is the inspiration for the purple heart. >> peter is the program director of the national purple heart honor in new york. one of the only original three of the purple mother badge of merit originally designed by george washington himself. let it be known he ordered he who wears the order of the purple heart has given of his blood in defense of his homeland and shall ever be revered by fellow countrymen. >> the purple dye was expensive, and the average person couldn't afford a purple garment. so it was a status. >> charles: after independence, though, the merit badge was forgotten. but in 1932, on the bisin

9:21 am
receive, because you have to get wounded or killed. >> it's special to me. every morning whether i walk out the door i see the medal hanging there. there's a lot of pain to get that medal. >> charles: next. >> we had lunch and he was very angry, and strongly suggest i consider changing my name. >> the other mapplethorpe. i accept i do a shorter set i acthese days.t 22 i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't play anything less than my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'm going for it. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin,
9:22 am
plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin... eliquis had both... that's what i wanted to hear. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't play quite like i used to. but i'm still bringing my best. and going for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
9:23 am
what's in a name. >> when you hear the name mapplethorpe, it may be this man that comes to mind. robert mapplethorpe, a photographer who took pictures like these. made headlines with these, and stirred controversy with images, some pornographic that we can't show you. but you've probably never heard of this mapplethorpe, robert's younger brother, photographer, edward mapplethorpe. >> i took no interest in being a baby photographer. >> but he does take baby pictures, hundreds of them, in fact. and full disclosure, that's my little girl haming it up for the cam ra. >> this is just one part of an extensive range of edward's
9:24 am
work that has had very little exposure, ask that has much to do with sibling rivalry. >> we grew up in a very suburban middle class neighborhood. we had a great childhood. >> in the 1980s, robert mapplethorpe became a prominent figure in a new york city subculture of artists and performers. a recently released hbo documentary called look at the pictures tells the story of his life through the eyes of those who knew him best, including edward, who grew up idolizing his mysterious and exciting older brother. >> i can say i was his earliest fan. he would come home, and i would almost get a nervous feeling in my stomach and want to impress him and talk to him. >> you were at that age thaw
9:25 am
knew something special >> i knew it was something special about him, but i also knew there was something within myself that was a creative side. >> a budding photographer, x*erd ward to new york city after graduating college in 1981. with a little push from their mother, robert gave his brother a job. edward worked for robert for two years, but he never stopped taking his own pictures. that's when things started to go wrong. >> he didn't take interest in what i was doing. >> this is great work. his great, edward. >> no. >> when their name appeared together on a program for a photography exhibit, robert drew the line telling edward, the world has room for only
9:26 am
one mapplethorpe. >> that was one of the worst days of my life. we had lunch and he was angry and made it clear he wasn't going to be a path for a successful career for me and strongly suggests i consider changing my name. i thought he had a point. i always wanted to do it on my own. so i was like, okay, why not. and that's how edward mapplethorpe disappeared from the art world. taking his mother's maiden name, he became known his edward maxey for the next 20 years. it was the beginning of a downward spiral. >> i was living on the west coast of california, and that's when the drugs starred taking hold, and then i heard that robert was hiv positive. >> despite the hardship and the hard feelings, edward returned to new york to care
9:27 am
for robert when he died. that's when he hit rock bottom. i went to my doctors in tears and told him that i had no control over my drug use, and my life was either end or end up in jail. >> robert died of aids in 19 89. that same year, edward kicked his drug habit. later, he would take back what was rightfully his, the name mapplethorpe. >> you know there are a number of pivotal points in one's life, and i can point them out, when you realize you have the strength of character to do what you need to do to make your life better. >> and life did get better. in 1997, edward met and later married art curator michelle, and at age 54, he became a father.
9:28 am
with a new outlook on life, he returned to the dark room. >> i heard of it was edward mapplethorpe. i was like edward mapplethorpe? new york city gallery owner has seen his work twice. >> the work i showed was purely abstract. it was all created in the dark room. >> using only chemicals, light and paint, he became to find his creative foothold. >> it gave me the ability to go beyond what he thinks is expected of him in photography, and what's expected of photography in general, and to go beyond that for him, i think is really what sets him apart photographically, not only from robert but other historic photographers. >> all the while, edward never stopped taking these photos. charging thousands of dollars per portrait. it's the kind of work that
9:29 am
pays the bills. >> as the years went on i became enamored by it, and it's one of the most rewarding things i do. >> and that's why these siblings, drooling, no nonsense, dubious little faces are the subject of edward's first book called "one." with a recent book tour and a larger than life display in a new york city city department store, edward is experiencing his most public success to date. >> it's almost like you had been living and working under the shadow of robert mapplethorpe, and you somehow now are working in the light of it. >> it has shifted. i certainly don't have the name and recognition that my brother does and the legacy, but not everyone has to be a star. as long as you can continue to
9:30 am
do good work and look at life as a creative individual, for me, anyway, that's okay. >> charles: growing up on andrew lloyd webber next.
9:31 am
9:32 am
donald trump: i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell them to go f--- themselves! you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever... you gotta see this guy. ahh, i don't know what i said, ahh. "i don't remember." he's going like "i don't remember!"
9:33 am
>> charles: with one look, the show stopper in the 1990s musical, sunset boulevard. composer, andrew lloyd webber, whose shows are back on broadway in a big way. here he is with mo rocca. >> what makes a great musical, and you write it because you want to write it. >> and if andrew lloyd webber writes it, there's a good chance it's a hit. this is a man with three shows simultaneously running on
9:34 am
broadway. phantom of the opera. school of rock. and the brand new revival of cats. >> the newest of the school of rock, based on the jack black movie about a washed up musician who teaches people how to open up their inner rock. >♪take it. >> and presently, hopefully, you take something away from it. it's got some catchy songs.
9:35 am
>> in fact, lloyd weber received some of the best reviews of his life for school of rock. >> the show isn't entirely new territory for him. early on, he and lyricist tim rice teamed up for one of the first rock musicals, jesus christ superstar. this song from the 1971 show -- i don't know how >> it was so popular, two versions of it landed on the charts at the same time. >> that was the song i thought was a story. >> telling stories of music
9:36 am
started early for lloyd webber. >> in a tradition of the director of the london college of music, the future impresario fashioned a miniature stage from a record player. >> was your musical tastes typical? >> no. certainly not typical. it was considered to be very, very abnormal. it may sound amazing to people today, but hammerstein was considered as an opinion making -- and off the scale of sentimental. i remember you know, i say little, and it was like carousel. what? >> after dropping out of the royal college of music lloyd webber began collaborating
9:37 am
with rice in his mid-teens. and they did super star with evita, eva peron, the wife of the argentina president. ♪argentina. >> it was a dramatic moment. ♪all through my wild days. >> evita was a hit. and then cats based on it. f. elliot, lloyd's first without rice, was a megahit. >> i played cats so many times my brother almost killed me. he came in my room and said
9:38 am
i'm sick of hearing of the jellicle cats. >> you know what jellicle cats are? >> i don't. >> they're a corruption of what the english posh say. little cats. those dear little cats become jellicle cats. >> dear abbey would say, dear little cats. >> are you a cat person? >> absolutely. >> how many do you have? >> at the moment, i have four. all turkish cats. they're swimming cats. >> are they friendly? >> friendly, but extremely strong willed. >> with cats, ask then phantom of the opera, lloyd webber became famous beyond musical theater. >> in the movie with the name -- >> you have --
9:39 am
>> and i turned it down. it was one of those things. the more i said no, the more they thought it was a great idea. i said i'm flattered, but if i play the role, it has to be my music. >> good idea? >> no, no. >> lloyd webber seems keenly aware of his own limits. he writes the music, but not the words. >> why don't you write the lyrics? >> i can't. >> i tried. writing lyrics is something very specific. they have a certain place in the way i writing them. x÷xxxxxxx÷x÷x@xx

>> charles: it was 50 years ago this past week that it became all too commonplace. >> a tale of loss of innocence. >> it's a summer day in austin, and students at the university of texas stroll the campus. a day much like the one 50 years ago, long before anyone knew the term mass shooting. >> this is where -- >> yeah, yeah. >> and it's the day and the spot where claire wilson james
9:47 am
will never forget. >> so as you lay here, you can see the towe tower over you. >> yes. >> walter cronkite and a special report. >> climbed to an austin landmark at noon today. >> a man perched atop the university of texas clock tower began firing on the people below. >> cut down on the west and south sides of the campus as the sniper zeroed in on his targets with accuracy. >> he shot at random for more than 90 minutes. claire, an 18-year-old student, eight months pregnant was walking on campus with her boyfriend, tom ecman. at first she didn't know what was happening. you never heard the shot? >> no, i never heard a shot.
9:48 am
i just felt a big jolt, and i then i started falling. >> as she fell to the pavement, her boyfriend tom turned to ask her what was wrong. the next thing she knew he was lying dead, and she couldn't move. >> you thought you were dead? >> i thought i was going to die, yeah. >> the killer was 25-year-old charles joseph whitman, a former marine sharp shooter. unknown to anyone, he had already killed his wife and mother in his home before heading to the tower observation deck with multiple guns. it was the first school mass shooting in modern u.s. history. >> so many lives in that one day. >> martinez was a young police officer with the austin police department at the time. arriving on campus he couldn't
9:49 am
believe what he saw. >> i could hear all of this shooting going on. it was like a war. >> back then, there was no such thing as rapid response team. it was left to martinez and the civilians followed by a fellow officer, to climb to the top of the tower to face off against the sniper and his arsenal. as martinez described it at the time -- >> he kept firing. and i could tell by the impact, that i hit him. mccoy shot and hit him, and he started going down. >> the shooter was dead. he killed 16 people that day, and injured dozens more. the mass shooting brought fundamental changes to the police department, and led to
9:50 am
the creation of s.w.a.t. teams around the country. for decades the only reminder of this terrible day could be found on this rock. keith matelin wondered why he didn't hear more. >> this is a story anybody who grew up here knew about it. there isn't much to fill in the blanks. >> so he made a documentary called tower. >> under the clock on the south side of the university of texas tower. using animation and archival footage to tell the story of that day. >> then what? >> then everybody ran. >> it was my understanding, that the way people went
9:51 am
through this, and how did it impact you and how does it impact the community. >> the worst days of life. >> in the process he wound up reconnecting people who hadn't seen each other since that day 50 years ago. >> people like claire whimson james, andartry. >> he was just a teenager at the time. he was running out in full view of the sniper to pick her up and carry her 100 yards down the steps to safety. something he said he felt he had to do. >> because she was shot. she was obviously pregnant. >> i didn't go to war. that was my war. >> because why? >> the blood, the death, the
9:52 am
horror. the loss of innocence. >> i think what i probably learned the most is that you have to deal with trauma, and for people who didn't give themselves an opportunity or weren't given an opportunity, it sits with them and eats away with them over the course of their lives. >> even people you way not expect, like martinez who before he was a police officer was a combat medic. he told us on the way to the tower to stop the sniper that day, he was forced to run past claire as she lay bleegd without stopping to help her. >> that day i was thinking like a medic and a policeman. i saw her wounded, and i felt it was my duty. >> in the movie version of
9:53 am
this, you're the guy who shoots the sniper and saves the day, and you're telling me that each you are racked by government? >> yes. if you're a human being, and you care for people, yes. >> the university is now taking steps to remember those lost. this past week, a new larger memorial was dedicated with the names of those killed, including claire wilson james wilson, and also her unborn baby. >> and in the shadow of the tower, there is now friendship and healing for survivors. and from claire, something else. >> and you forgive him? >> yeah. god's forgiven me everything i've done, and he's kept me from being that kind of person, you know, that decided to go that way.
9:54 am
i mean, how could i not forgive him? i mean, he was just a really mixed up kid. >> steve hartman, just ahead, horsing around. >> steve hartman.
9:55 am
fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we wired the wagner's house with 100 meg internet. which means that in the time it takes mr. wagner to pour a 20 oz. cup of coffee, tommy can download 30 songs, and jan can upload 120 photos. 12 seconds. that's the power of fiber optics. and right now you can get 100 meg internet with equal upload and dowloads speeds, tv and phone for just $69.99 per month online. cable can't offer internet speeds this fast at a price this good. only fios can.
9:56 am
>> now, steve hartman. >> 24 hours. >> as long as parents could remember, breana carsey had a crazy dream. she wanted a brood mare that would give birth to a baby horse that would grow up to be a champ. >> it was a fairytale for her. we had to go somewhere. >> it sounds expensive >> yeah. >> why not say no? >> she has me wrapped around
9:57 am
her finger. >> her foal was moern in 2013. he named is m.j. got faith. >> i love him. >> but that quick bond posed a problem for his push over dad. see, for whatever reason, brian thought once he explained, it was a run from poor breeding stock, she would agree to sell it. >> she's like there's no price, daddy. i was talking to my wife, and i said we're in a mess. i don't know how we're going to get out of this. so we staged it in the races. the horse i thought we should have gotten rid of. >> brian was stuck committed to boarding and training his long shot to end all long shots, and it's not a wealthy family. and harness style racing is a
9:58 am
900 million a year industry. >> m.j. got faith barely qualified to compete, and then somehow, some way won his first race. his second, third and fourth, qualifying him for the state championship held in columbus, ohio. >> i said baby, if you finish third, you should be so thankful. >> she said daddy, if he finishes last, i'm going to be thankful, but he's going to win. >> and so this little horse with no pedigree, this pet with no reason to be here beyond the blind faith of a little girl won an ohio stakes championship. >> she said dad, i told you, you've got to have faith. breana took hem $100,000 that day. she gave half to charity, and
9:59 am
plans to buy a farm. >> i wanted to have a farm and walk out the back door and see him. >> since we first celle told th story things have the gotten better for breana. she got an award and book and movie deals are in the works. dad now has a race horse. perhaps because of that poor choice, brian has yet to win a single race. hopefully, his daughter will let him live on her farm. >> are you -- >> tracy smith talks with actor hugh grant.

10:02 am
it's the person standing with me now. >> it's "sunday morning", and here is charles osgood. >> charles: that's one of hugh grant's memable moments. grant has been in countless films since and has a new one opening on summer screen. he spoke to >> there are few leading men more charming than hugh grant. by his own admission, more difficult to work with. are you a perfectionist? yes. i get people mad on films that i've made i. to try new lines and interfere in the editing process, and interfere in the advertising

10:04 am
