For the end of our second TWTV book club, stunt casting aplenty! Or rather, a discussion of what it meant and continues to mean for TV.
This week’s book club explores the early sitcoms and the women who made them possible.
The drama anthology host isn’t around much these days, but a look at them in 1950s says a lot.
Chapter 2 asks what it took to be a television personality in the 1950s, and the TWTV book club asks how those standards play into the current day.
We discuss Hollywood history and whether the Web is the new TV for actors in this week’s book club.
We talk with Christine Becker, the author of It’s The Pictures That Got Small, about the book’s inspiration and its appeal for TV and film history buffs.
