This set is one of the best values I have seen anywhere for the price. Unbeatable. Curious that some reviewers are complaining about audio/video discrepancies. I have played through all of the discs several times and could not see or hear anything out of the ordinary. They are all in black and white, common in 50's TV, some shows are a little creaky, production-wise, but all the more charming, seeing these early TV holiday shows with a few creaks make them even more enjoyable.
Contents include 5 Christmas episodes of Ozzie and Harriet, 4 of the Beverly Hillbillies, also Christmas episodes of Red Skelton, Jack Benny, Dragnet, Burns and Allen, Abbot and Costello, Petticoat Junction. Variety and music shows, such as Liberace and Fred Waring. Drama shows include Four Star Playhouse, Dickens' A Christmas Carol with Vincent Price, even Sherlock Holmes and a Lux Theatre production of Holiday Affair. Many, many more. Other reviewers have included a complete listing here on Amazon. I was astounded to see original commercials included with some of the shows, giving it a real 50's feel! A wonderful step back in time! This is truly marvelous entertainment for the Christmas Season. Sit back with a mug of hot cocoa and some Christmas cookies, with the Christmas tree lights twinkling, curl up with the afghan and enjoy!!

I like many of the shows on this DVD. It reminded how years ago a lot of TV series had Christmas shows. Some of the shows are rather grainy but still fun to watch. Read morePublished 8 months ago by J L NEAL
