Book Trailer, Beverly Hills Country Club by Earl Clark and Allen Singer, Arcadia Publishing


This is a trailer for the book, Beverly Hills Country Club, released January 25, 2010. amazon link: www.amazon.com The club was known by more recent generations as the Beverly Hills Supper Club, in Southgate, KY, which burned down in 1977. A major tragedy, and one of the nation’s worst nightclub disasters. However, the club had a long legacy, and was known as the Beverly Hills Country Club in the 1950s. This book features over 200 pictures taken behind the scenes during the 1950s. Movie stars, recording artists, Broadway actors, comedians, even dog acts. Much of the world’s greatest talent played at this little club just south of Cincinnati. Here’s the list of names in the photos in order of appearance: Constance Towers (book cover) Dorothy Dandridge Marie McDonald The Ritz Brothers Ben Blue, in center, with stooges Milton Berle Martha Raye Frank Fontaine Rose Marie Liberace The Andrews Sisters Tony Bennett Abbe Lane and Xavier Cugat Jimmy Durante with house musician Andy Jacob The first music cut came Stravinsky’s Firebird symphony, the second was “Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy” by June Christy. Christy appeared at Beverly Hills, and her photo is in the book. I thought it was a great song and appropriate for the trailer. contact me: allen@allensedge.com
