1948 What A Year It Was: Happy 71st Birthday or Anniversary Hardcover Coffee Table Book

Regular price $24.95 Sale

What A Year 1948 Was! Jimmy Stewart worked with Alfred Hitchcock for the first time. Superman was the hot new film serial, Betty Grable was tops and drive-in movies gained in popularity. Variety shows made their mark on TV in a big way, but radio was still tops with Burns & Allen and Jack Benny. Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole lit up the charts. Ghandi was assasinated and Harry S Truman took the White House in one of the greatest upsets in political history. Dick and Mac MacDonald invented fast food. The average salary was $2,933 and a Rolls Royce cost $18,500. The state of Israel was born, and so were Samuel L. Jackson & James Taylor.

Our big, classic hardbound yearbook is filled to bursting with stories, photos, and artwork detailing the movies, music, shows, sports, fashion, news, people, places, and events that made 1948 unique and memorable. Personalize it on the special dedication page for a handsome and much appreciated gift.
