Book Description:


In 1977, at the Beverly Hills Supper Club in Southgate, Kentucky, 165 people died in a tragic fire. Covered by news outlets across the country, many still associate tragedy with this popular entertainment destination. The club's legacy, however, stretches back to the 1950s, when it was known as the Beverly Hills Country Club. Folks from across the nation came here to see the best shows in town and to gamble in the casino. Considered the finest nightclub in the Cincinnati area, it showcased lavish entertainment at a time when television and rock and roll were still in their infancy. Beverly Hills presented all of the day's top entertainers: Liberace, Milton Berle, Carol Channing, Mel Torme, Jimmy Durante, Tony Bennett, and a galaxy of other world-famous headliners. This book reveals a host of those wonderful and diverse performers as they prepare backstage for their shows, chat with musicians, and strike poses for the camera. Featuring photographs taken by Earl W. Clark, who played saxophone in the Beverly Hills house band from 1951 to 1962, Images of America: Beverly Hills Country Club includes hundreds of the talented artists who graced the stage, as well as the crowds who saw them perform.

Author Bio: Allen J. Singer is the author of three Arcadia Publishing books and lives in Covington, Kentucky. As a writer and historian, Singer teamed up with Earl W. Clark to compile this rare and captivating collection.
