Opera and Audrey Hepburn and Calculus. OH MY.


Frank Sinatra fans at the Paramount Theater in New York, October 1944. On Sinatra’s first day at the venue, now known as the Columbus Day Riot, some 30,000 people, most of them teenage girls, swarmed Times Square to see their idol. His fans were known as bobbysoxers and marked the beginning of teen culture in America. The New Republic editor Bruce Bliven called it “a phenomenon of mass hysteria that is only seen two or three times in a century.”
