Broadway: The Golden Age is the most important, ambitious and comprehensive film ever made about America's most celebrated indigenous art form. Award-winning filmmaker Rick McKay filmed over 100 of the greatest stars ever to work on Broadway or in Hollywood. He soon learned that great films can be restored, fine literature can be kept in print - but historic Broadway performances of the past are the most endangered. They leave only memories that, while more vivid, are more difficult to preserve. In their own words - and not a moment too soon - Broadway: The Golden Age tells the stories of our theatrical legends, how they came to New York, and how they created this legendary century in American theatre. This is the largest cast of legends ever in one film.

At 1313 Mockingbird Lane, Mockingbird Heights, lived one of America's strangest sitcom families, The Munsters. Strangest looking, that is, for beneath Herman's Frankensteinian facial features, Lily's vampiric visage, Grandpa's Dracula countenance and Eddie's Wolfman looks, lurked possibly the sweetest and most sensitive sitcom family ever to grace the small-screen.

Welcome to the Profiles in Courage guide at TV Tome. This series was based on the 1956 Pulitzer Prize winning book of the same name by then-Senator John F. Kennedy. Each of the historical dramas covered one public figure who served as a model of virtue and courage under pressure. Each subject took an unpopular stand and persevered in their pursuit of justice and the right path, in spite of the coercion and vilification of the majority. "This book is not just the stories of the past but a book of hope and confidence for the future. What happens to the country, to the world, depends on what we do with what others have left us."
”from the book's foreword by Robert F. Kennedy

Cavalcade Of America was one of the most prestigious dramatic shows of network radio, sponsored for 18 years (1935-1953) by DuPont as a means of enhancing the company's image and bringing great events in American History to an audience of millions. In 1952 DuPont brought the Cavalcade to TV, and the same meticulously accurate stories of American heroes both famous and infamous as well as obscure, in historical periods ranging from colonial days to the Revolution to the early 1900's. In 1955, the format was modified to include comtemporary stories of overcoming adversity and showing courage. For the first season the program was seen every two weeks, alternating with Scott Music Hall. And in 1955 it changed its name to DuPont Cavalcade Theater and again in 1956 to DuPont Theater. An absolute treasure of a show a definite must see for all. *The photo is from the episode, "The Boy Nobody Wanted", starring Johnny Crawford.
