мы делаем одно и то же, просто по разным поводам - 1960


Элвис только что дембельнулся. Вместо соревнования двух величин публике была представлена музыкальная концепция творческой дружбы.

It's March 26th at 6:15 PM in Miami. The year is 1960 and television history is about to be made
as legends Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley make television special "Welcome Home Elvis"
to celebrate the singer's return from his military service. The two men had been musical rivals
throughout the 1950s and the press had largely tried to exploit a rift between them. Yet Sinatra
arranged for his own daughter, Nancy, to meet Elvis at the welcoming party and gifted him
a box of dress shirts for his arrival.

The show, sponsored by the Timex watch company, aired on May 12, 1960 and captured the
attention of an estimated 67% of the entire television-viewing audience. Although critics were
divided, it's still exciting to see so many years later.
