The Capitol Tower – a film from 1958

A interesting cheesy promotional film narrated by country music star Tennessee Ernie Ford by Capitol Records from 1958. The shows several “stars” from the time including: Barbara Gayle, Leonard Pennario, Mora Lympany, Micky Katz, and John Browning. It also briefly features an appearance by Glen Wallichs, Capitol Records’ former president and one the original co-founders (the other co-founders were Johnny Mercer and Buddy DeSylva). One of the best bits is the meeting of the ‘album committee’ choosing future releases!
