Editorial Reviews

The 50’s were the Golden Age of television’s game and quiz shows. In 1957, 5 of the top 10 programs on TV were quiz shows. Five days a week, the voice of Jack Bailey, master of ceremonies, carried across the nation via the ABC network to ten million viewers who settled in to see another Cinderella story unfold. After hearing the often heart wrenching personal misfortunes of the candidates, the live audience in the Hollywood, Moulin Rouge Theater voted for their Queen. Using an "Applause O Meter", the winner would be crowned "Queen for a Day." This is the original pop culture television classic, which coined the phrase "Queen for a Day." Between radio and TV, the show had a run of nearly 20 years. These are the only surviving seven episodes of this influential show.
