Format: DVD
First, the negatives: 1) the quality of the video and sound leave a lot to be desired, but fortunately not so poor as to make the show unwatchable; 2) portions of the broadcast feature the backing dancers in performances that are laughably antiquated (not to mention the opening bit featuring all of the stars is pretty corny); and 3) the bonus 45 minute-long Elvis documentary is an amateurish, low-budget production, looks like it was dubbed off a low-budget VHS tape recorded at EP speed (note that the actual Frank Sinatra Timex show is of better quality than this extra feature).
All of the above would normally sink the rating to one-star. Fortunately the DVD is redeemed by a few classic pop songs by Frank Sinatra, several bits by Sammy Davis Jr. (a tune from PORGY AND BESS, a comedy bit where Sammy mimics celebrities), and the legendary summit meeting of the top 1940s and 1950s idols: Frank and Elvis Presley. Neither Frank nor Elvis' performances rate among their all-time best, but both are in good form. Although Dean Martin is not around, another ratpacker Joey Bishop has some funny quips, and a teenage Nancy Sinatra is in some scenes (quite a few years prior to "Boots Were Made..." and "Something Stupid"). The good scenes outweigh the poor ones, making this probably one of the few variety shows of that era that remain entertaining to watch over four decades later. Overall, for Frank and Elvis collectors only ... there's too much better material by both artists available to put this on the must-see list unless you are big fans of one or both stars.

I've been a "Frank Sinatra" & "Elvis Presley" Fan since I was in my early teens and would like to remark that this is a unique and memorable DVD.
Boy, the year was 1960, and Frank Sinatra schedules Elvis the King of Rock-and-Roll as his guest star. Elvis can be seen just back from serving his 2 year conscription in the U.S. Army. It has been said that Elvis came back to reclaim his title as the teen-idol. The interesting part of this DVD was that the original and unedited "commercials" from the shows' sponsor "TIMEX" watches. It was great and nostalgic.
Another interesting part of this show is Sinatra's other guest stars as "Nancy Sinatra". Other highlights were "Sammy Davis, Jr.", "Joey Bishop" and "Peter Lawford", the only other missing member or guest of the infamous "Rat Pack" was "Dino".
My only complaint is the quality of the DVD. It was rather poor. Considering its' age, forty-four years ago, though, the visual was still discernable.
All-in-all, this is a must for all Elvis / Sinatra buffs. I truly enjoyed this DVD.

Note that the DVD's notes and Amazon's description are wrong. The TIMEX SHOW is from a kinoscope (film) not video tape. This means that the picture and sound quality are poor. While the entire progam is there the start of the show is clipped a couple seconds. If you think you would like the show because of Sinatra and Presley you will very much.

While I only rated this DVD a 3 out of 5 stars please recognize that this is only because of the relatively poor video quality. For any true fan of Sinatra, the Rat Pack or Elvis ownership of this DVD is a must. The commercials alone are worth the price of admission. It really is a hoot to watch Elvis flub his lines when singing the Sinatra hit "Witchcraft".

This is a very good show, Frank sings "Gone with the wind" and "Witchcraft" they have Sammy sing and dance, they have Peter Lawford dance, they have Joey Bishop, & Nancy she does a dance and sings "you make me feel so young" with Frank, and of couse they Elvis he sings "Fame and Fortune" & "Stuck on you", and he does a duet with Frank.
I really enjoyed this show alot if you are a sinatra or Ratpack or elvis fan you should buy it!

There are two DVD's of this show. One was from the JAT production and this one that you are reading about is from Quantum Leap. So don't waste your money on JAT's version. This DVD from Quantum Leap gives you the complete show of "Welcome Home Elvis".

Plus an old Documentary of "The Story Of Elvis Presley". Back in 1991 my fist video that I ever own on Elvis was this documentary that you'll get as a bonus on the DVD. I believe that I bought it from Phar-more of Walmart. But anyway, I never new anything about this man until I bought this video. Now, we can now own it along with the Sinatra Show. It's not a great quality documentary but it gives me memories of how I started to be a collector of Elvis Presley. So Fan's get this DVD because it's a Classic moment with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.

This gem from 1960 featured two singing legends..Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. Without a doubt,there is a lot of magic when these two music titans performed in this ABC-TV special. There are even some appearances by Nancy Sinatra, Joey Bishop,and Sammy Davis,Jr. I especially enjoyed the duet of Love Me Tender/Witchcraft. By the way get a load of the commercials from the legendary John Cameron Swayze for Timex! Timeless entertainment to enjoy!!
