First up, by special request, an oldie but goodie--the famous New York City Checker Cab--it's part of a collection of vintage taxis, courtesy of auto histprian Alden Jewel; see more at http://bit.ly/29kk1QC
Next is a fab publicity ad for Frank Sinatra, 1944. He's followed by a 1970 ad from the days when stations like NBC did extravagant holiday productions. We sure wish this Thanksgiving special--FESTIVAL AT FORD'S THEATRE--was available on DVD (we checked, it isn't--please let us know if it is and we've just missed it!)
It features James Stewart as narrator, hosted by Andy Williams, with Pearl Bailey, Tennessee Earnie Ford, Bobbie Gentry, Burl Ives, Henry Mancini, The Supremes and Dionne Warwick. We sliced it into two for easier viewing.
Again, click on the photos.
