Pat Boone: Love Letters In The Sands Of Time

Episode 1 of 1

In 1957 Pat Boone was finishing his senior year at Columbia University. He also released five singles that hit the charts; four made the top 10 and two went all the way to number one. He starred in two movies, turned 23 and found out he was going to be a father... for the fourth time. It was quite a year. With everything else that was going on, ABC decided that Pat was going to be the youngest person... ever... to have his own television show. So... on October 3, 1957... the Pat Boone Chevy Showroom was born. During the hit show's three-year run, Pat's guest stars were the biggest names in the entertainment industry. This program is literally a time capsule of television variety entertainment, as it existed over half a century ago.
