Product Description

Steve McQueen, Ann-Margret, Edward G. Robinson. A young Depression-era hustler in New Orleans takes on the reigning king of poker in this tense drama. 1965/color/102 min/NR.

From the Back Cover

The 1975 World Series is treasured by baseball fans and historians as one of the most exciting, dramatic, and important events in the history of Major League Baseball. The mighty Cincinnati Reds lineup was stacked with players who would win the MVP award six times between 1970 and 1977. The Boston Red Sox defeated the three-time World Champion Oakland A's and were led by Fred Lynn, AL MVP and Rookie of the Year. For eleven days these stellar clubs staged an unforgettable performance that capture the attention of the entire sporting world, and in the process created some of the most indelible baseball television images in memory.

This unprecedented seven-DVD collector's edition preserves all of the remarkable history of the 1975 World Series with the actual broadcast of each game! It was unbelievable the first time--today the game action and heroics are even more exhilarating. Intensify your viewing of each game with the official stats, data, and game summaries on SleeveStats, the perfect companion to the ultimate baseball DVD experience.

Size: Reds
This has been put up there as the greatest or one of the greatest World Series ever played. It has all the credentials. Sparky Anderson had put together a great team that would remain great for many years. They had Tony Perez, Joe Morgan, Pete Rose, Johnny Bench and more. The Red Sox had Jim Rice, Fred Lynn and Carl Yastremski for an outfield and Carlton Fisk for a catcher. Yet it is the little known player not destined for Cooperstown who sometimes have a big moment in the World Series. Billy Martin and Bobby Richarson for the 1952 and 1960 Yankees respectively. Al Gionfreddo for his catch on Joe D. in 1947. Sandy Amoros for his catch on Yogi Barra in 1955 and many others. In this series there was a very clutch home run by Bernie Carbo of the Reds.

Of course the most famous home run of th series was Carlton Fisk's because
(1) It won game 6 for the Red Sox and (2) it took the series to a decisive 7th game and (3) it was so close to the left field foul pole that Fisk went down the first base line and tried to "wave" the ball fair (a very familiar sight every time the home run is shown).

------------------------------------------------

It's hard for me to imagine owning a better collectible keepsake of the stellar 1975 World Series than what A&E Home Video and Major League Baseball Properties have put together for baseball fans here -- a 7-Disc DVD compilation featuring all seven games from the original NBC-TV network telecasts (with Tony Kubek, Curt Gowdy, Joe Garagiola, and Reds' play-by-play man Marty Brennaman, among others, at the microphones calling the action).

All of these games are presented complete and uncut, with two exceptions -- a half-inning of Game 2 (top of the 2nd) and 1-and-a-half innings (plus one additional batter) of Game 3 are missing on these DVDs. Evidently that video footage could not be obtained by A&E/MLB for this collector's set.

The missing moments of Games 2 and 3, however, do not involve either team's scoring. So no big home runs, RBIs, or crucial plays are part of the AWOL footage.

The Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox battled each other over the course of seven memorable baseball games during the fall of 1975.

The World Series (Collector's Edition)s are the only way to relive the Fall Classics because they include every game broadcast on seperate DVDs, that's the entire broadcast of each contest now, and they include some pre or post game highlights, comments, interviews, etc.; in this case mostly first pitches and, usually, the end game wrap-up with disc 7 showing the triumphant Reds locker room. The half-inning breaks inlclude minimal announcer chatter and this series was interesting because of the announcer musical chairs they played between network broadcasters Joe Garagiola and Curt Gowdy (with Tony Kubek on the field) and team announcers Dick Stockton (Red Sox), Ned Martin (a seasoned sports commentator for New England area professional, and even college, sports) and Marty Brenneman (Cincinnati).

Because of the memories of the children begging mom to let us stay up and see the ends of the schoolnight games, the long school day afterwards, the head-lolling (and balk-move to first) of Luis Tiant - not to mention 3 rather impressive 100+ pitch appearances by the "pith and guile" veteran - because there were some guys playing baseball who might be out on a construction crew, or telling at a bank, or sacking groceries, or driving truck, to make ends meet the next week, because of a love of "The Big Red Machine" (because the Cubbies were never available to root for in the post-season), because my sister had a crush on "Davey" Concepcion, well, you get it... because this was one of the great Series of all time when ML baseball was "still a game" I made this my first World Series Collector's Edition purchase and have completely enjoyed watching it a couple of times (so far). I love seeing it in color as we had to settle for B&W in the day.

What holds this set back from a full five stars are the audio glitches. Along with the Game 1 ten-second delay, there is another game where the audio is a little off from the video. Speaking of video, the video quality of the games are generally good, however there are some exceptions. I'm glad that MLB is releasing these classic World Series games on DVD. This one is very good, without the audio mistakes this is an easy five stars.
