This Saturday: A COMEDY TONIGHT

Hollywood’s “Golden Age” started with the first “talkies" in 1927 and lasted until to the late 1950's, when television’s increasing popularity changed society's entertainment habits. The Golden Age incorporated the glamour, style, sex-appeal, talent, and sheer razzmatazz of an era which produced many of the greatest films, directors, and stars ever to grace the screen.
