Ultra Rare Bing: Crosby on TV

Dec 11 – 12, 2010
12:00 PM PT
Los Angeles

In advance of our Bing Crosby panel, please join us for a special weekend of Ultra Rare Bing—screenings culled from the Crosby family’s personal archive, most unseen since their original airdates. See Bing in a tour-de-force dramatic role with costar Joan Collins in a recently restored episode of The Danny Thomas Hour; singing with Diana Ross and the Supremes during a musical hour taped on the Parmount lot digitally restored from the original masters; starring in his 1964 situation comedy with Beverly Garland; and sharing reflections on his life in rare interviews including his first ever television appearance in color, a 1954 interview with golf great Jimmy Demaret.

Tickets are FREE but RSVPs are required.
