The year is 1949. Milton Berle was television’s first superstar. “Uncle Miltie” owned Tuesday night during the late 1940s and 1950s. His comedy-variety show featured vaudeville style skits and broad humor – which was an immediate hit with early television audiences. To his credit, Milton Berle was one of the first TV hosts to recognize and appreciate the talent of a 21 year-old former Memphis truck driver named Elvis Presley.

In today’s colorized photo, Uncle Miltie “conducts” the Duke Ellington Orchestra during an appearance on his show, Texaco Star Theater, on September 20, 1949.

At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the exciting, vibrant lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!
