Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The Tony Award-winning actress and songstress Carol Lawrence, for years a toast of Broadway and the centerpiece of innumerable stage musicals, became one of the staple vocalists of the Bell Telephone Hour, a network musical showcase that drew significant audiences on NBC from 1959-61 by featuring performers of adult standards. Lawrence joined the program in 1960, under the aegis of producer Barry Wood and conductor Donald Voorhees. Carol Lawrence: The Bell Telephone Hour Appearances 1960-67 compiles excerpts from many of Ms. Lawrence's appearances on the program over the course of seven years, with a combination of rare black-and-white and color archival footage, in this release from VAI Distribution.
