I really expected the opposite: to see what was aired on television, plus some, not minus some. As much as I enjoy the classic performances--worth the purchase--I'm disappointed with the editing.
Ed would begin that way introducing the celebrities and warming us for Toppo Gigio the Little Italian Mouse or for , a young man from Memphis , Tennessee ( Ed could hardly hide the distaste as he pronounced the words ) Elvis Presley. "
The video contains records of some of the highlight performances, and also an interview with Ed and his wife Sylvia.
Highlights are wonderful, but my sense is that putting together a package in which the complete shows as they came on at the time would give a dimension no excerpts can.
In rapid-fire fashion we are presented with samples of literally dozens of famous performers in all fields. The color and b&w excerpts are in excellent condition; average running time for each is a minute. Sound quality is very good throughout.

And for further fine Sullivan memories, check out the the hour-length HOLIDAY GREETINGS FROM ED SULLIVAN SHOW, also from Buena Vista. (VHS only)
