Betty White came from a background of live radio (The Betty White Show) and TV (Hollywood on Television) in the late '40s and early '50s. In 1952, the extremely ambitious 29-year-old formed her own production company, becoming one of the first women to wield power both in front of and behind the camera. Includes: Life With Elizabeth (1952) - Whistler's Sister and Nursery Rhymes; The Betty White Show (1954); A Date With Angels (1957) - Return of the Wheel and Tree on the Driveway; The Betty White Show (1957) - Vacaton and Jealousy
2 episodes of "Life with Elizabeth" (show aired 1952-1955). Always a fun show, Betty shines as a housewife who seems to be smarter than she lets her husband (and most of the audience) think. Still, this has been seen on plenty of other DVD releases. An episode of the daytime version of "The Betty White Show" from November 29, 1954. Not a good show, not a big surprise that it was short lived, but there is a few solid moments, including Betty singing a cute song ("It's A Good Day"), and an enjoyable musical performance of "Sing, You Sinners" by an African-American performer. The last 10 or so minutes ("Wish Day") are nearly unwatchable, though (odd, since a "Wish Day" segment in another episode, sadly not on this DVD, was very good). Two episodes of "A Date with the Angels", a fluffy 1957 sitcom, "Return of the Wheel" and "Tree on the Driveway". Dated storylines, but the jokes for the most part are pretty good. Two episodes of the prime-time comedy/variety show "The Betty White Show" from 1958. Both are quite good, though at least one of the episodes is obviously incomplete.
Though not her best work (and, for the most part, not among the better shows of the 1950s), these vintage TV episodes are interesting, and with possibly one exception, certainly entertaining.
