Top Hat & Tales: Harold Ross And The Making Of The New Yorker

Harold Ross didn't choose where he was born, but he did choose where he lived. When he founded The New Yorker in 1925, he masterfully captured the Jazz Age spirit of popping Champagne corks. Broadway glamour, and ultra-dry wit. Ironically the magazine that became a hallmark of the city's sophistication was created by a high school dropout and miner's son from Colorado.

Incorporating a rich array of film clips from the 20s and 30s - speakeasies, jazz bands, rising skyscrapers - Top Hat And Tales evokes an image of a metropolis that still glitters. Interviews with celebrated editors, writers and artists - such as John Updike, David Remnick, Roz Chast, Lee Lorenz, Charles Schulz and Roy Blount Jr. - shed light on how The New Yorker's signature style and content were shaped by its early contributors, including E.B. White, James Thurber, Charles Addams, Janet Flanner, J.D. Salinger and more.
