Betty White was a TV pioneer and had a big influence on the TV explosion of the 50s. She hosted her own variety show and was the first woman to produce her own shows. This set of 4 DVDs contains 24 episodes from her first series, Life With Elizabeth (her first Emmy win), and 16 episodes from her second series, Date With The Angels. All charming and comical. Also included is a short documentary of Betty's TV career, up to Hot in Cleveland, which she co stars for the 4th season. Just an amazingly energetic lady who at nearly 91, still combines her career with her animal activism. Delightful look back at the making of a star.

Betty White is an American legend; an icon; a comedic genius; actress; animal rights activist; humanitarian; and star for decades on television and in film. She has also done radio and stage too. There is no reason that 7 time Emmy winner Betty White isn't given America's highest honor of being a Kennedy Center Honoree.

In this four disc set, you will see her infamous role in the fifties sitcom, "Life with Elizabeth, in the title role of course and Del Moore as her long suffering husband, Alvin. While this sitcom has announcer who talks to Elizabeth and she replies non-verbally to him. The announcer will ask "Elizabeth, aren't you ashamed of yourself?" And she replies non-verbally of course not. The first two discs feature the season of the show with ten episodes apiece.

The last four episodes of "Life with Elizabeth" is on the third disc. The third and fourth discs features 16 episodes of a later sitcom, "A Date with an Angel," where she plays newlywed Vicki Angel. Bill Williams plays her husband, Gus.

Of the two sitcoms here, I prefer Betty White as Vicki Angel. Her first sitcom has Alvin and Elizabeth most of the time with little interaction from neighbors, relatives, or friends. With the Angels, there is more socialization with friends and neighbors which makes it more real.

The DVDs here are a fine quality but remember that quality and preservation by time may have affected the final result. Still it is worth seeing both shows at least once.

The last disc features an uninspired documentary about Betty White made with an unknown narrator and shown clips of "Life with Elizabeth."

Betty White is seemingly more popular today than she has ever been before. One of the most talented and feted comediennes to ever grace the small screen, audiences have cheered Betty through countless decades of solid TV entertainment. This bargain-priced set from Mill Creek collects 40 episodes from Betty White's 1950s TV vehicles LIFE WITH ELIZABETH and DATE WITH THE ANGELS.

Running between 1953-55, LIFE WITH ELIZABETH revolved around ordinary housewife Elizabeth (White) and her husband Alvin (Del Moore). In quite a bold step, storylines took on a non-linear pattern, with the on-screen narrator (future game show host Jack Narz) taking us through various "incidents" in Elizabeth and Alvin's marriage, as opposed to regular 25-minute, self-contained stories. In the early days of TV sitcoms it was highly unusual, and still is largely unheard-of today! This was, at least, partly done because the producers weren't sure if they wanted to syndicate the whole show or just highlights from certain episodes.

LIFE WITH ELIZABETH originated at the Los Angeles station KLAC-TV in 1952, where both White and Moore were employed at the time. The show started out being aired live with a studio audience as part of a larger, five-hour block of variety entertainment. White won her first Emmy Award for her performance as Elizabeth. 24 episodes of LIFE WITH ELIZABETH are included in this set.

DATE WITH THE ANGELS (1957-58) casts Betty as Vickie Angel, another trouble-prone housewife, with Bill Williams as her husband Gus. It's quite close in spirit to the earlier ELIZABETH (including several of the same creative and production staff), but it is a more polished production - situation comedy had come a long way in the few short years between ELIZABETH and ANGELS.

I haven't watched all the dvds in this collection as yet but if you never saw a young Betty White and how amazing she was (and still is) you will enjoy seeing these shows where Betty started her career. She used to be on different game shows and met her husband who was a host (Alan Luden) of one of the popular game shows of the times and after his death she never married again though I'll bet she had a zillion proposals. Betty's first tv sitcom is in black and white and a very young Betty has that same smile and wit that she has now. These tapes show her start in TV land and why the public and all of Hollywood fell in love with her then and continues to be in love with her now.Though Betty is 91 she still has the same spectacular personality; is a hard worker with those 'can't resist' smile and dimples. For all who love her in Hot in Cleveland (she is absolutely fantastic) and other recent shows these tapes reflect the enormous talent Betty has and the same smile with her famous eye 'flutter' that always gets her anything she wants....it's still there now as it was then! She is simply one remarkable lady. Betty is a champion to all that know her, that worked with her and those that watch her - who could resist Betty--she is such a special lady!!!!!!! The price for this set is more than fair and looking back over Betty's career is an eye opener--how can one little lady be so talented? Well Betty White can!!!! Probably the hardest worker in TV-land! If you adore Betty-you will love her even more!! You can't go wrong with this set; you can only remember 'when' or see them for the first time for all you young'uns!!!
