 What Are Little Boomer Girls Made Of?

Under Development & layout

In 1955 I was five years old when Rebel Without a Cause starring James Dean, Sal Mineo and Natalie Wood hit the silver screen. It was the story about an emotionally confused suburban, middle class teenager. The film was a groundbreaking attempt to portray the moral decay of American youth, critique parental style, and explore the differences and conflicts between generations. That pretty much always sums up the era whenever some writer or historian tackles the subject matter and describes what it was like in the fifties.

The Feminine Touch for Oldsmobile 

This 1969 Oldsmobile sales film stars Bess Myerson, the 1945 Miss America winner who became an iconic spokeswoman, game show personality, and consumer advocate. The musical backing exemplifies the Brazilian musical craze of the time--it's Burnell Whibley's "Riviera Bossa Nova."
