The 1950s brought comedy, politics, the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and rock n roll right into our living rooms through the new medium of television. We saw Lucille Ball develop into a comedy legend; "Ike" become President, Elvis Presley and James Dean capture a generation of young Americans, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speak to the conscience of America. TV gave us classic satire from Sid Caesar and Steve Allen , and a brash young interviewer named Mike Wallace. This program captures the unique personality of the 50s the decade that set the stage for the development, growth, and change of the rest of the century. Youll thrill to great 50s music from Nat "King" Cole, Liberace, Jerry Lee Lewis, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley. Enjoy debuts by Frankie Avalon, Robert Wagner, The "Peanuts" Gang, Jonathan Winters, and more. Youll hear from the legends, including James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Rocky Marciano, Bogart & Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd.
