Wiesbaden, West Germany, December 1951: The Hollywood "Surprise Package" show at the Camp Lindsey gymnasium included performances by two celebrity couples whose weddings in 1951 made headlines across the U.S.: Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, shown here being interviewed for AFN radio, and Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner. Also performing for the crowd of 3,900 at the event, which was one of several scheduled on a tour of U.S. bases in West Germany, was actress Rhonda Fleming.
