Overview

Max Wilk, one of TVs first writers (who is now one of its foremost), has given us a touching memoir of the days when the mighty TV screen was indeed golden. Say what you will about TV, it has been, & is, undeniable our history. Whats left of the electronic artifacts of the mid-20th century tells a lot about ourselves. Wilk goes back to the days when TV began, back in 1947. He traces its first awkward steps, its flowering, & its departure, in the mid-50s, with the advent of videotape. He recalls such stars as Sid Caesar, Howdy Doody, Jack Benny, James Dean, Grace Kelly, Paul Newman, Art Carney & Jackie Gleason. Photos.
