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. You’ll 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. You’ll hear from the legends, including James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Rocky Marciano, Bogart & Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd. And you’ll roar at the best punch lines of Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca, Jackie Gleason, Steve Allen, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Extra Features: '50s Vintage Kitsch - Fads and Follies, Newsmakers, Sports Sensations.
