Editorial Reviews

In the 60s and 70s, it just wasn't Christmas without the legendary King Family. Catapulting to fame as one of the most popular television, recording and concert acts of the era, the Kings hosted two network series and 17 holiday TV specials. In celebration of the 45th anniversary of their ABC debut, join the King Family on DVD for the first time ever as they take a heartwarming look back at their classic specials in this all-new holiday TV event, coming to public television soon from Polly O. Entertainment. In clips unseen for decades (now digitally remastered), The Kings perform a cavalcade of classic showstoppers, while sharing personal, behind-the-scenes memories in contemporary interviews. Featuring Grammy-nominated, big band era greats The King Sisters; guitar virtuoso Alvino Rey; film favorite Robert Clarke; the King Cousins featuring 60s sweetheart Tina Cole (of My Three Sons fame); the King Kiddies; and all the aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters that make up 'America s First Family of Song.' Includes heartwarming performances of such beloved classics as 'I'll be Home for Christmas,' 'White Christmas,' 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town,' 'My Favorite Things,' 'Caroling, Caroling,' 'The Christmas Waltz' 'The First Noel' and a swinging bossa-nova medley of ' Twas the Night Before Christmas.' As a bonus, the 1967 Christmas Show is included in its entirety, featuring a surprise reunion between King Sister Alyce and her son, home from U.S. Army service.

I loved the shows back in the sixties and it was really nice to see them again. I only hope this will motivate them to release their other shows as well. The scenery, the warmth emitted from the family members to each other and of course the most pleasant singing you don't see or hear anymore! It was nice to see the cousins and kids all grown up and of course very special to see the 2 remaining King Sisters together. I loved watching them perform as a child and was very glad to see them now. If you want to be transported back to a more innocent and sweet time where families showed each other respect and kindness just take a little time to view this dvd.

Thsi is a wonderful christmas DVD that gives us a nice nostalgic blast from the past. Some great christmas msuic led by a family of wonderful singers. Fans of FRED WARING, LIVING VOICES, RAY CONNIFF, VOICES OF WALTER SCHUMANN, and especially LAWRENCE WELK, will find much to enjoy here. Some nice soloists from the KING FAMILY step out here, too. You also get a nice backing orchestra here.

Great christmas songs like THE CHRISTMAS WALTZ and I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS along with some nice medleys make this a great christmas mood setter that is wonderful not only for your own entertaining but also as something to put on in the background when entertaining guests at your home for during the holidays.

While still worthy of 5 stars, the only thing that sometimes gets in the way of the beautiful music (and this is all IMO), is that they have family members still around today speaking about the times of these christmas recordings that were part of the KING FAMILY christmas specials on TV back int he 1960's and 1970's and this is fine in itself between songs, but too often they cut into a song so you don't get the whole song (that is, they interrupt the song). Sometimes you get the whole song afterwards, sometimes you don't. It kinda bothers me a bit when you're enjoying the song then they simply cut into it with family members suddenly speaking about that time. That said, you easily still get enough songs in their entirety to enjoy this DVD and as you can see, many others have also given this a 5 star rating.

I really do very highly recommend this for some christmas cheer. It really is entertaining! And get the CHRISTMAS WITH THE KING FAMILY cd when (if) you get this. They're both awesome!

This DVD is like a time machine back to my childhood. All warm and fuzzy and innocent with a whole lot of family love and talent shared. My own favorite is Alyce King Clarke. A beautiful woman with a beautiful voice. Being able to watch her rendition of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" while being surprised by her son, Ric, home from the army again is a special treat and a real heart tugger. Very enjoyable.

For those who have commented on "too much talk and interviews" etc -- they must not have checked out the bonus section to see that the 1967 Christmas Show is available to watch in it's entirety -- without any interruptions.

This show is a hoot. I can still remember the King Family Specials as if it were yesterday. This collection of clips is wonderful and the rememberances from the family members today especially the young ones is priceless. There is also a complete show on this disc that reminds us all of a simpler time. If you love and remember the King Family as I do buy this DVD!

This DVD is extemely well done with great behind the scenes interviews scattered throughout and your chance to watch an entire, uninterrupted Christmas special. Wish all their Christmas specials were on this DVD instead of just one - perhaps at a later date? In fact, would like to see ALL their specials on a DVD boxed set one day as well as all of their albums on CD. Watching this reminds you just how good the 4 King sisters were. This DVD is a great tribute to the King family. This DVD was far better than expected and will be a part of our annual holiday viewing.

What a great way to remember the Christmases of my childhood (60's-70's)! My family always looked forward to the Christmas variety specials and the King Family never disappointed. The lush costumes and beautiful voices are a delight to experience again after all these years. It was also fun to see the family members reminiscing about their days together performing on the road and filming their television specials. I highly recommend to anyone who enjoyed this type of programming back in the day.

The first time I heard about King Family was an LP album, that a friend gave me...I fall in love with 'The Little Drummer Boy" and
other musics....It was a glad surprise to find that the album was available in CD format, and even in DVD...the1967 tv show.
It's happy, it's full of great music. Of course...the children...not always 'in tune". But, in total, I recomend this product.
