On December 31, 1961, America's fascination with New Year's Eve revelry was in high gear. It was a time of growth, celebration and excess. Drinking, smoking and celebrating were all the rage.
John F. Kennedy was president, the Jackie look was in and Camelot was in full swing.
The Hustler starring Paul Newman was the #1 movie and as you can see on the left, he celebrated midnight kissing his young wife, Joanne Woodword.
The Beach Boys performed for the first time on New Year’s Eve 1961…more than two year before the Beatles would first appear on the Ed Sullivan Show.
