Editorial Reviews

It isn't easy boiling down a TV talk show that ran for more than 20 years and upwards of 5000 episodes into a highlight reel lasting less than an hour. The folks who compiled Mike Douglas: Moments & Memories have done that with notable success by staying true to the host's own style: i.e., focusing on the guests, respecting the audience, and providing a balance of interviews, performances, and other material guaranteed to appeal to a wide cross-section of viewers. Douglas, who died in 2006, was an up-and-coming singer (he provided the voice of Prince Charming for Disney's animated Cinderella in 1950) who moved into TV in the early '60s, and his daytime chat fest was a popular destination for celebs of every stripe, who recognized and appreciated that the confident but deferential host preferred to listen to his guests rather than compete with them and was more interested in making them look good than in promoting his own act. Moments & Memories contains clips with an extraordinary variety of visitors (from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Mother Teresa, from two-year-old Tiger Woods to Muhammad Ali, from Marlon Brando to Paul Newman, from Louis Armstrong to Kiss' Gene Simmons), but what distinguishes it from almost all DVDs of this ilk is the presence of complete musical performances, in this case by the Rolling Stones (performing "Not Fade Away" in '64, surely one of their very earliest TV appearances) and John Lennon (a nice version of "Imagine," backed by the Elephant's Memory band). Music fans will find those two gems alone worth the price of admission. Bonus features include about an hour's worth of additional interviews and Douglas bio material. --Sam Graham

Product Description

- Before there was Oprah or Dr. Phil or Ellen, or any of these people, there was Mike Douglas.- - Jay Leno, remembering Mike Douglas on The Tonight Show Legendary daytime talk show host Mike Douglas influenced many of today's biggest stars, including Barbara Walters, Jay Leno, Regis Philbin, and Rosie O'Donnell, among many others. He ruled daytime talk from 1961 to 1982, reaching as many as 15 million people with a single show and averaging an astounding seven million viewers a day. MOMENTS AND MEMORIES takes a look back at Douglas' tenure as talk-show-host extraordinaire. The program unlocks a plethora of amazing performances and interviews from the show's vaults, including Tiger Woods' first appearance on television and Marlon Brando's personal commentary on his role as The Godfather. Douglas' charming disposition drew in the viewers while also setting his high-profile guests at ease. Almost every major celebrity who hit it big in the 60s and 70s appeared on the show either as a guest or co-host. John Lennon and Yoko Ono co-hosted the program for a week in 1972, producing several poignant and memorable moments such as the duo's live performance of Imagine and their collaboration with Chuck Berry on the rock n roll classic Johnny B. Goode. A 2- year-old Tiger Woods also charmed the crowds like a seasoned performer, showcasing his early talent for golf while unknowingly matching wits with comedic heavyweight Bob Hope. Priceless moments like these captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers throughout the country. But it was Douglas' innate charm that endeared him to his fans. He frequently sang on the show, crooning out classic numbers like The Men in My Little Girl s Life. Douglas also kept the show light-hearted and entertaining, frequently choosing silly and outlandish stunts to make his audience laugh. Throughout the course of the program, Douglas wrestles with Andre the Giant, talks to a chimpanzee and clowns around with a variety of comedians. MIKE DOUGLAS MOMENTS AND MEMORIES gathers all these clips and more, taking viewers back to a bygone era filled with all the fun outfits, hairstyles, songs and attitudes of the 60s and 70s. 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb compilation! January 16, 2008
Verified Purchase
This seems to be the same material recently shown on PBS. Anyone who recalls coming home after school and watching The Mike Douglas Show because there was only one TV in the house and that's what Mom had on will thoroughly enjoy this trip down memory lane. And there won't be a dry eye for "The Men in My Little Girl's Life."
Plus, the price is fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Sixties March 26, 2008
There's some stellar material on this disc. We see a complete song performance of the Stones in their prime, a youthful rocking Mick and a harmonica playing Brian, doing Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away. There's the fabled hosting of the show by John and Yoko, with a lovely rendition of Imagine by John, who then joins with Chuck Berry in Johnny B. Goode. A two year old Tiger Woods shows his precocious skill, flanked by Bob Hope and Jimmy Stewart. Great clips of Alfred Hitchcock, MLK, Alex Haley; Rodney Dangerfield; it's a huge list of performers and prominent men and women who really made a difference, in marked contrast to the People Magazine celebrity, designer fashion, can't-write-or-play-but-is-a good-dancer present day line up of those in the public eye.

Mike Douglas was a great guy; calm, warm, hip, open-minded, aware of what really mattered in his day. This PBS special is a wonderful testimonial to him and his times; perhaps they'll come again, who knows. At the moment it's looking fairly promising!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good March 28, 2008
Verified Purchase
The main part of this DVD is a 1 hour special with short clips of the celebrities listed above but then you have the bonus extras which are longer clips of the same artist and gives you another hour. The transfer of these tapes isn't quite as good as I had hoped for, for instance the John and Yoko sections look so much better on the old VHS box set I have from Rhino. The Rolling Stones is a highlight for me since I'd been looking for a clip of it for 30 years.
All in all definitely worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike Douglas-Moments and Memories DVD- April 29, 2008
I saw parts of this video on a PBS special, and loved it and wanted to see the whole thing! I don't remember ever watching the Mike Douglas show when I was younger. He was a daytime talk show host like Johnny Carson was a night time talk show host. As I watched the video, soon my husband and 17-year-old daughter were watching with me, and we were all really enjoying it! There are great interviews, some funny, some poignant. In a way, it's a tribute to Mike Douglas the man, using those who knew him and interviews and clips from his show to illustrate their impressions of him. It's only about an hour, and we wished it were longer! We'll be watching it again with our other children when they come home to visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike Douglas is the BEST!! November 4, 2008
When I saw that anything on the Mike Douglas Show was coming on DVD I can't even explain my joy!! I remember so fondly watching 'Mike' as he was called in our house every afternoon- 'Mike' was on when my mom was cooking dinner, when I set the table, and lucky for us my dad came home from work about 6 p.m. so we got to watch all of 'Mike' before sitting down to dinner! My mom used to quote him as if he were a personal friend...but then again he sort of was our friend. Mike Douglas brought family entertainment into our homes for two decades. His show also introduced the younger audiences to the likes of Totie Fields, Vincent Price, Marty Allen, Pat Cooper and how about the weekly guest hosts? Who can ever forget the week that John & Yoko hosted!
Even the BeeGees made three apperances! I loved this DVD but....I want MORE!!! Please give us more of Mike on DVD....pleeeease!!!!!!

Maybe it's the fault of whoever hasn't yet put all of his shows on DVD, but this particular DVD disappointed me. While it was a great tribute to Mike Douglas' life, clips seemed random (who decided to show only seconds of several stars' acts but an entire song by John Lennon which is on its own DVD anyway?) - This DVD was over and I was wondering where the rest of it was. Way too short, not enough stars and kind of a let down. :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike Douglas - Moments & Memories May 24, 2008
By Emily
Verified Purchase
This DVD is exactly what its title indicates: Moments and Memories. Many future stars perform in their relatively fledgling careers and the ever present Mike Douglas smoothly transitions from one segment to the next. One is reminded of the graciousness which permeated his shows. Anyone who is interested in hearing wonderful songs, sung on pitch, not screached or drummed to the nth degree should enjoy the music. Anyone interested in good fun will enjoy the more comedic segments. Anyone who thirsts for good clean humor and honesty of performance should enjoy this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interviews Like No Other - Mike Douglas, a Master July 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
One of the best things that Mike Douglas ever did on his shows was to let his guests speak while we all listened. The best part was that it began with him, how he approached his guests, how he appreciated his audiences, and how he let us listen in - as though we were in the front room sitting there with him.

We are treated to a rare insight into the master files of a master interviewer, a thorough story teller and exceptional entertainer. Mike Douglas' mix of humor, courtesy and pure interest in his guests comes through time and again. Unlike other talk-show hosts who oft times appear to be caught up in the clock and seemingly distracted by what's coming next, a viewer gets the sense that what is happening at that moment is what is important; to Mike Douglas great credit, that was each of us.

Mike Douglas' Moments & Memories should be mandatory viewing for any would-be journalist or broadcast host because this man really was the Dean of the School of the very best interview techniques. - Prof Mike Haller
