1950: 'The Arthur Murray Party' Begins
July 20, 2019  | By TV WW  | 2 comments
 
This day in 1950 marked the start of the Golden Age of Television's answer to Dancing with the Stars: Arthur Murray Party Time — which was later renamed (and best known as) The Arthur Murray Party.

The series cast famed dance instructor Arthur Murray and his wife, Kathryn Murray, as hosts of a party-like gathering featuring celebrity guests and performers. During the broadcast the Murrays — with the help of dance instructors from the Arthur Murray Dance Studio — demonstrated various dances.

During its decade-long run, The Arthur Murray Party ran on ABC, CBS, DuMont and NBC.

My father, Robert "Moose" Daniels worked for NBC. I found an old Bulova watch with Arthur Murray Award on it. I'm not sure if he worked on the show or not. Any idea of the origin of this watch?

I appeared 5 times on the Arthur Murray Party from when I was 5 years old. I am wondering if there is a place I can log into to maybe see some of the old shows. My partner and I danced a Ukrainian dance and we kept being asked to come back on. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
