Do you remember when your TV screen was only ten inches wide, when it broadcast only five hours a day. When neighbors came in every Saturday nights watch Sid Caesar and kids were in every afternoon to see Howdy Doody? Max Wilk, one of television's first writers, has given us a wonderful memoir of the days when the mighty screen was indeed golden -- it's creation rough, spontaneous and unforgettable. Was Jack Benny really funny off camera? Why was I Love Lucy one of the biggest breakthroughs in TV technology? How did James Dean, Grace Kelly, and Paul Newman become household names? Listen as Art Carney talks about "The Great One, " Jackie Gleason. Max Wilk probes deep into the recesses of the TV monolith, and has given us a hilarious and touching memoir of the days when the mighty screen was indeed golden.
