1959 MiniBook: 61th Birthday or Anniversary Gift
Take a trip down memory lane with this look back at 1959. Elizabeth Taylor converted to Judaism, the religion of her soon-to-be-4th-husband, Eddie Fisher; Fidel Castro arrived in Havana, seizing power in Cuba; Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon sizzled in “Some Like it Hot”; Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper are killed in a plane crash in Iowa; and Bobby Darin has the year’s top hit with “Mack the Knife.”
Our full-color MiniBooks come packed with a year's worth of rare pictures, stories, and ads! Remember the movies, music, TV & radio, headline news, people, sports, fads, and events that made 1959 your special year!
