Description
Justine Carelli and Bob Clayton Autographed 45

In the early days of American Bandstand, certain favorite dancers who frequently attended the show were granted the special status of "regular." They received a membership card that allowed them to bypass the enormous waiting lines outside the studio. This assured that there would always be a sufficient number of attendees and provided continuity for the viewers. Within a few weeks of the show's network debut, fan mail for the regulars began pouring in at 15,000 letters per week. Many of these regulars achieved a minor celebrity status, as they were known to millions of TV viewers.

Among the most popular regulars were Bob Clayton and Justine Carelli. The minimum age requirement to appear on the show was fourteen, but at the age of 12 Justine applied heavy makeup to get on the show, and was initially turned away by "Bob the Cop" at the studio entrance. The next week she again tried to gain entry, this time carrying her older sister's birth certificate, and was successful. She soon became a regular. In the summer of '56, a young man named Bob Clayton was watching Justine on TV from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, and soon became smitten with the vivacious Justine. This prompted him to attempt to appear on the show; soon thereafter Justine and Bob became arguably the most popular couple on the American Bandstand. This 45 rpm of "Drive-In Movie" by Bob and Justine on Fransil records is autographed by Justine in red ink, "To Howard Best Wishes Justine Carelli" and Bob has written in blue ink, "To Howard Best of everything Bob Clayton." Frame: 15 x 22
