The Year was 1956 and the Milton Berle Show, one of the most popular programmes of the Golden Age of Television was broadcast live from the deck of the USS Hancock, docked at the Naval Air Base in San Diego, California. The show starred the beautiful Esther Williams, Berle's comedy sidekick, Arnold Stang and the Harry James Orchestra featuring Buddy Rich. There was also a kid making one of his first television appearances by the name of Elvis Presley. Presley was already becoming a rising and thousands of Navy personnel were wowed by his rendition of Shake Rattle and Roll. Heartbreak Hotel, followed by another Elvis song that turned into the rock and roll anthem. Blue Suede Shoes. Berle and Presley also do a fabulous comedy spot together that is a classic.
