Thirty-minute talk show starring host, Gypsy Rose Lee.
Gypsy Rose Lee, who is generally credited with introing the idea of gab as an adjunct of peeling, is still talking on this ABC-TV syndicated strip now being distributed by Seven Arts.
This show debuted on KGO-TV in San Francisco (the station that produces it) in April and was picked up by KABC-TV in Los Angeles
a month later and is now on WBKB-TV Chicago.
Miss Lee is a greatly uninhibited and somewhat undisciplined hostess, both factors which provide the best and worst of the show. She's quite well-informed and widely experienced and has a considerable knack of showing interest in and contagious appreciation of her guests.
Guests: Lainie Kazan, Eartha Kitt.
This PBS musical special remembers and salutes the music of the early and mid 1950s which includes archival footage clips of this glorious era of song. Also includes clips of "New Faces Of 1952," a Broadway Revue starring Paul Lynde, Eartha Kitt, and Alice Ghostley, and a special sing-along with Mitch Miller.
Hosted by Peter Marshall, Nick Clooney, Patti Page, and Wink Martindale. Announcer is Mike Frazer.
Directed by T.J. Lubinsky.
