For fans of TV history, a walk through the "Television: Out of the Box" show at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills is like a grand stroll through our collective past.
Visitors to the exhibition, which celebrates nearly 60 years of Warner Bros. television, can view such items as Clint Walker's buckskin costume from the western "Cheyenne" and Connie Stevens' sundress from "77 Sunset Strip." From more modern times, there's a section devoted to NBC's long-running medical drama "ER," which features such items as George Clooney's stethoscope and the County General Hospital badges worn by the cast.
"We brought in the situation board from the last episode [of "ER"] where in-jokes were written," noted Leith Adams, corporate archivist for Warner Bros. Entertainment. "You can see somebody is in the hospital for an insulted ego."
