Emmy Night from TheArchive

Image
If you haven’t had enough of the Emmys yet, TheArchive has dug deep and pulled out a few of our many Emmy titles. Cedric wasn’t around when most of these shows were nominated, nor was RuPaul or Ted Lasso, but who doesn't love Tom Selleck who hosted in 1984 when Samson and Delilah had an Emmy nom? And guess what? The nominee also styled Selleck’s luscious mane for Magnum P.I. What are the chances? Anyway, please excuse the digression, as we highlight a few Emmy favorites from a bygone era. In  Gun , a star-studded six part series and two time Emmy nominee, the lives of several unrelated characters change dramatically when they encounter the same pearl-handled .45 semiautomatic pistol. The series features appearances from Rosanna Arquette, James Gandolfini, Daryl Hannah, Kirstin Dunst, Martin Sheen, and Carrie Fisher.

Yes, he's indeed enj

This President’s day TheArchive honors the men who have led our country through conflict. Some have guided us past it while others caused it.   Either way, it’s challenging at the top and these stories of leadership have carved their way into our zeitgeist. In Ronald Reagan, The Hollywood Years, and Ronald Reagan, the Presidential Years , we track Reagan’s rise to power and his brush with the kind of conflict he could rise above. From that iconic moment on stage with Goldwater in 1964, to his governorship shortly thereafter, to his presidency, Reagan is celebrated as one of the most popular presidents of our time. But we also learn that the Iran-Contra affair certainly led to some unseen conflict that unraveled his favor but only for a short while.
