JOE'S 2019 ONLINE
HOLIDAY ADVENT CALENDAR





Welcome to Day 5 of our 2019 Holiday Advent Calendar.  This year we are celebrating Radio City Music Hall, the amazing Rockettes, who have graced the Radio City Music Hall stage since 1932, and the many movies that premiered on the Radio City Music Hall screen.





Accurately self-proclaimed as “The Showplace of the Nation,” Radio City Music Hall opened on December 27, 1932, as a cornerstone of Rockefeller Center. 

It was planned as the ultimate theatre for live performances - everything from popular entertainment to opera and ballet and symphonic music.  All of those elements were represented in the first night's program, but with a five-hour running time, it was a tad too long, to say the least.   The critics castigated the show, but the theatre itself got rave reviews.  It was — and is — the ultimate Art Deco masterpiece of architecture and interior design. 





So, two weeks after opening (and losing about $100K a week,) the format was switched to a movie and a stage show - four times a day.  And this was the rule at Radio City Music Hall until 1979 when the film business had so changed, it was no longer enough to sustain the theatre.  For the last 40 years, Radio City has become, as was the original plan, the premier location in New York for live performances.





But from 1933 to 1979, a film could have no better launch than premiering at Radio City Music Hall.  Over 600 films had that honor, and over the next 25 days, we going to spotlight several dozen of them with film clips and trivia tidbits.

Every day a different movie (or two) will be featured, along with links to video clips from the movie or from the stage show, or about the movie or the stage show, or about Radio City or about the Rockettes.  So, even if you've temporarily sworn off doll purchases in December (hard to imagine though that is), you still might enjoy coming back every day just to see the video clips.





You'll also find each day a different assortment of ten or more doll items that we are featuring:  something pretty to look at; something to add to your Wish List; something to order before it gets away. 

Items will stay listed (as long as we have them in stock) throughout the 25 day Holiday Advent Calendar period.

Today is Day 5.  Just click on "Day 5" below -- and let the fun begin.
