Friday Video: The Year was 1963

From Cliff Richard to a Miss World contest to the Beatles.  An interesting year in hairstyles, too.  We can reflect as well upon what was deemed a great figure in 1963.  And I have to wonder if anybody out there actually owns one of those Beatles wigs.

What a fun way to start the day! My favorite: "Don't worry -- she's only fainted!"
