The new TV season, 77 Sunset Strip, October 10, 1958


The new Friday shows of the 1958 TV season include some short-lived programs (Charles Bronson in "Man With a Camera") and one of the landmarks of the 1950s, "77 Sunset Strip."

Warner Bros. spun off this series into another hit, "Hawaiian Eye," a moderately successful show "Surfside 6" and a lesser-known program, "Bourbon Street Beat." 

Kookie, lend me your comb!

...about those Warner Bros. clone shows: don't forget "The Roaring Twenties" and the one set in Alaska during the gold rush, the name of which I just cannot pull out of my memory - guess it didn't last long enough to make a big enough impression. The format for each was basically the same: 2 good-looking guys & a great gal with a stray character for comic relief, fighting crime in an exotic locale (on the Warner backlot) & driving really cool convertibles. Ah...those were the days!
