Editorial Reviews

Milton Berle was 67 years old when this brutally honest discussion took place. Hediscussed the tragedies, regrets and triumphs he expereinced overa 60+ plus year career.

Berle is almost teary eyed as he recalls how his mother, Sarah, propelled him into a successful career but also smothered his personal life, lest he become unfocused. Often, Berle, as the sole family breadwinner was all that stood between his family and starvation.

Those who remember the Golden Age of the TV talk show, fondly remember producer David Susskind, who for nearly 30 years interviewed celebrities - whether entertainment or political - on his weekly show. It began on local New York City television in 1958 on the independent TV station WNTA. (The same station that aired his "Play of the Week Series") When WNTA became a public broadcasting station, the show - "Open End" went into syndication. It also changed its name sometimes to "The David Susskind Show"

Unlike the Dick Cavett Show - which I have devoured on DVD - Susskind was more serious in interviewing a guest during his one- hour or two-hour show (less commercials). I'd compare him more with Charlie Rose - but with a decidedly New York accent. And he could be sarcastic.

To my knowledge none of the "Open End" shows has been available on home video until last year when S'more Entertainment began releasing them (a two-hour Jerry Lewis interview was the first).

This 55-minute DVD has comedian Milton Berle as his only guest. Berle was making the talk show circuit in 1974 promoting his just published autobiography (titled "Milton Berle: An Autobiography") and that is the source of much of the discussion. We learn how poor Berle and his family were growing up in New York. ("We ate rice every day; the SAME rice!") and this poverty is the fucus of the conversation for nearly the first 16 minutes. Though I quote one "joke" above, there are very few funny in this show. This is the most serious I have seen Berle in front of a live audience. Berle entered show business at about age seven and was a huge success in vaudeville and on the New York stage and that is where the rest of the show is focused. WE learn virtually nothing about his life after age 33.
