Wall to wall music in a one hour television special that introduced the Edsel to the world, complete with all of the original Edsel commercials.
The special replaced The Ed Sullivan Show, for the same sponsor, on CBS' Sunday lineup for one evening only and was broadcast live in the United States on October 13, 1957, intended to promote the Ford Motor Company's new Edsel cars. It was notable as the first CBS entertainment program to be recorded on videotape for rebroadcast in the western part of the country after the program was performed live for the East.
Ending theme song 'On the Sunny Side of the Street'.
Actors: Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra
