Catch a Falling Star: 1958

Foil stars and a moon hang from the ceiling at a school dance in the Itawamba Junior College gymnasium in Fulton fifty years ago during 1958. Selections by such artists as Ricky Nelson, Elvis Presley, The Chordettes, Pat Boone, Chuck Berry, The Platters, Perry Como and Bobby Darin were probably played by the school orchestra. It was the year The Bridge Over the River Kwai won the Academy Award for Best Picture and such television programs as Concentration, The Huckleberry Hound Show and the Donna Reed Show premiered on the small screen.
