The 50s were the Golden Age of televisions 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.

What I watched here was a treat in "movie" form. These 3 stories were not the miserable, hard luck tales someone wrote about. Each one of the stories was special and had meaning. The last was my favorite and had a very good lesson to teach. It would be great if this one could be shown in our schools...about making fun of other people.
I agreed with the one who wrote about a clear showing of what the culture, dress, mannerisms etc of the 50's was.
Look for Mr. Spock as a chef, think it's the 2nd story, This was what, at least 13 yrs. before Star Trek? Hope you enjoy it.
