50 years since 'Pretty Little Dolly'
On Friday Dec. 15, 1966, Sleepy Hollow resident Mona Abboud Auer performed “The Pretty Little Dolly” song live on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. The obscure little song might not have become a huge hit, but watch as Mona sings this little ditty, and Johnny does what he does so well. As many of you know, most of the material from the the first ten years of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson no longer exist, so it’s great that this clip survived and we can get a glimpse into the beginning of Johnny’s reign as King of Late Night. We had planned to blog about this during the holidays, but the holiday season biz took priority, so better late than never. Also be sure and check out the following article about Mona’s appearance here. Enjoy!
