Editorial Reviews

This HBO special show at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco was a culmination of talent and work, characteristic of Frank Gorshin. He is best known for his role as "The Riddler" in the 1966 T.V. show "Batman". His impersonations of celebrities, such as John Wayne and Marlon Brando became his trademark and were at the forefront of his genius.

I've been a fan of Frank's since the first time I saw him perform, and that was a lot of years ago. I actually met him once, but that's another story.

First, I've gotta tell you I'm 65. I absolutely agree with another reviewer that much of Frank's performance on this DVD will be lost on a lot of the younger folks. In fact, almost all of the personalities Frank does impressions for are dead, many a long time. But if you're a senior citizen, this is one fine performance by a very talented actor-singer-comedian-impressionist. I've never seen Frank better, ever, than this performance at the Fairmont in San Francisco (HBO release 1977).

If you aren't a senior citizen but know one who has a DVD player, this would be a first-class gift. If you don't mind opening it before you give it to whomever, even if you don't recognize some Frank's personalities, you will certainly be impressed with his showmanship. If he wasn't having a terrific time up there on stage, he sure fooled me.

I have only two criticisms. One is that you can't get a real good feel for the audience reactions. But, to do that, you'd have to take the camera off Frank, and that'd be no good. The other is, Frank had a gunfight skit I saw years ago (Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Anthony Quinn and Marlon Brando, with Frank playing all 4 parts, of course) that was hilarious, and I was hoping it would be on the DVD, but it's not.

The first day I got this DVD, I ran it twice. This is good stuff.

I gave it five stars for all the seniors who'd treasure this DVD. For you younger folks, you'll have to find your own Frank Gorshin, and there's no one alive who comes even close.

I am a long time Frank Gorshin fan. This video is from 1977 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The "4th" chapter is the meat of the show and it is astoundingly great. Not just the number of impressions or the voice and facial resemblances, but the flawless performance. I saw no mispeaks or imperfections. My regret is that my kids (ages 29 to 39) don't remember Frank or many of the actors being portrayed.

I really liked Frank Gorshin; he had a gift for physically resembling the person he was impersonating BUT this particular DVD is a bit of a disappointment in that the quality of sound varies. It's worth a watch, but I don't know that it's a "keeper".

I've enjoyed him back in the day, he was the best in the Ed Sullivan phase. He also was still great during the Kopycats show. At the time of this HBO special he was not up for the task. He was great as Kirk, Burt, and the Riddler. Rich Little was his heir apparent. At the time of this performance, Rich was rising and Frank,unfortunately was waning. In my memory tho, Frank Gorshin rules! "hey, Kirk, how come you always have soup for lunch...........cause it's the only thing I can get between my teeth." Hey, Frank, thanks for the memories! It still was fun watching you again. It took a little too long getting to the goodies,and unfortunately you were not totally on top of your game. But, there were moments though!!!
