GOLDEN GIRL IN THE GOLDEN AGE OF TV - THE BETTY WHITE SHOW - NBC-TV - CIRCA DECEMBER 1954
In the Fall of 1954, a multi-talented broadcaster, who would ,decades later,become America's most beloved Golden Girl, was already a major player in what we look back upon nostalgically, as televsion's Golden Age.
The Betty White Showon NBC-TV starred the versatile actress,host and singer in a daily 30 minute talk show , accompanied by musical conductor Frank DeVol.
The breezy, informal offering was produced LIVE in living monochrome at the NBC Studios in Burbank. Her producer was Don Fedderson, who brought American television viewers a wide range of cathrode ray tube confections, ranging from MY THREE SONS to FAMILY AFFAIR and THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW.
By 1954, Ms. White was a video veteran, having hosted one of the first,LIVE, unrehearsed and unstructured shows on Los Angeles Television. In this rare episode, from the FOXEEMA YOU TUBE site, the affable Ms. White sings, talks, leads to commercials and introduces a canine cameo by one of early, network television's most beloved stars.ENJOY!!!!!
My name is Paul Gluck ( aka PAGEONE ) and while I have been working in Television for over 30 years, I have watched Television for my entire life.From the very first, monochrome images of Dave Garroway on the TODAY SHOW that I saw flickering across the screen of my parents 21",blond wood, Zenith console TV, to the vibrant video of SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL blazing across the LCD flat panel in my living room, I have always loved television. I have worked as a production assistant,a writer, an assignment editor, a producer,an executive producer, an executive editor,a news director and a station manager. My fascination with the medium , the programs we create and the people who produce that content, grows with each & every day. KINESCOPE HD is a site dedicated to classic television, creative content production and vintage performances on video. I hope you share my love of television.If you do, share your thoughts on the programs we post.Enjoy!!!!!
