Bill Haley and The Comets

[Bill Haley]

Bill Haley (William John Clifton Haley, Jr.)
Signed on with Decca in 1954.
For true rock n roll fans, "Bill Haley & The Comets"
were the real pioneers of rock n roll.
During the first recording session at DECCA records on April 12, 1954 "Rock Around the Clock" was recorded.
Chosen for the soundtrack to The Blackboard Jungle,
it became the #1 best Best Seller in 1955.
"Rock Around the Clock" became an anthem for rebellious Fifties youth.

[Bettie Page] BETTIE PAGE
The greatest pin-up of all time.
In the 1950s her photos rocked America,
violating taboos, provoking the wrath of a U.S. Senate committee and immortalizing her forever as a sexual icon.
Then, in 1957, at the height of her fame, she vanished without a trace.
5'5" MEASUREMENTS: 36"-23"-35"

1950's Anti-Drug Propaganda
found some of its most sensationalistic expression on the covers of mass marketed paperback books
SHE TRADED HER BODY FOR DRUGS AND KICKS
NEVER WAS THERE SO OUTSPOKEN A NOVEL AS THIS...TELLING THE PLAIN, UNCENSORED TRUTH ABOUT TEEN-AGE ADDICTS - AND THEIR DESPERATE SEARCH FOR THRILLS!
[Marijuana Girl]

"Nobody is telling Disney how to run their company.
Many people are just expressing their rights as Americans not to contribute to a company whose views run contrary to values they are fighting to preserve."
