Enjoy a Trip to New York City to see Ernie Kovacs in the 1950s

The poster of this video explains that their mother had befriended Ernie Kovacs when he was in Philadelphia. When Kovacs moved his show to New York, she went to visit him and took this home movie. It is a great time capsule of mid 1950s fashion and also a behind the scenes look at a popular celebrity from the time. I just wish they had picked more appropriate background music for the video.
