See the first performances of struggling amateurs such as Frank Sinatra, Nick Carter, Gladys Knight, Ann-Margret, Robert Klein, Raul Julia, Beverly Sills, and others. In this 2-DVD set, Pat Boone also shows us some of the wildest and wackiest novelty acts from "The Original Amateur Hour." From one-legged tap dancers to impressionists. And from crazy kitchen bands and one-man-bands to jugglers and saw players, the series that made the "gong" and "the wheel of fortune" famous, had them all. DVD "extras" include 2 complete "Amateur Hour" TV episodes, just as they originally aired . commercials and all, plus 2 1930's era motion picture "shorts" devoted to the series.
A must-have set for anyone who watched "American Idol" and anyone who remembers the classic radio and tv series that started it all.
This is a 2 DVD set!
"The Original Amateur Hour will offer up a wonderful aura of wistfulness and innocence. This is TV before the boob tube went tawdry, a chance to see the basics of broadcasting before marketing and merchandising ruined the ride." - Bill Gibron, DVD Verdict
"A nice nostalgia trip for someone who remembers watching the show when it was on." - DVDtalk.com
