Good morning, Netizens…
I discovered what I believe to be a genuine gem in my Internet reveries this morning. Point your browser to http://www.emmytvlegends.org/ and settle in with a cup of your favorite beverage, as once you have started, you simply cannot quit.
This is a collection of television and movie stars being interviewed. Most of the stars/starlets were there when television was in its infancy, and they tell about various aspects of their performance histories. As far as I can tell, most of the interviews were unrehearsed, and stand as near-historical documents in my opinion.
The site features a good search engine, and includes a wide variety of luminaries, many of whom are either well up in years or deceased. If you loved early television, this site will take you back in time when television all began.
