Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Lucille Ball... Loretta Young... Gracie Allen... Betty White... Four of the female pioneers from the "golden age" of television. With the exception of Ms Ball in "The Lucy Show", this 2-disc set spotlights these talented stars in their original TV vehicles, with four episodes apiece. Granted, most of the material included here can be found in countless budget public domain TV collections in much the same quality, but this set is a nice starter for those looking to begin a collection, or even as a fun Christmas stocking-stuffer.

THE LORETTA YOUNG SHOW:
With husband Tom Lewis serving as executive producer, Loretta Young embarked on her long-running anthology series in 1953. Originally titled "Letter to Loretta", each episode would typically begin with Young making a dramatic entrance into her "living room" to open a letter and introduce the story about to unfold. Young starred in the majority of the episodes; an appealing mix of romantic comedies, dramas, thrillers, period pieces and religious tales. Over time, Young garnered a sizable gallery of favourite characters, including prison-farm manager Inga, and bespactacled Sister Ann of the Mercy Hospital. But perhaps even more famous than the show itself was Young's "twirl" at the beginning of each episode, with such designers as Travilla and Werlé creating one-of-a-kind gowns for Young to wear as she whirled through the door.

Episodes:
"Son, This is Your Father" - Single mother Ginny Dickerson has raised her teenage son Scott (Norman Ollestad) without a penny of support. But when her former husband (Alan Hale Jr.) suddenly decides that he wants to play an active role in Scott's life, Ginny is filled with memories of his abandonment fifteen years earlier.

"The Lucy Show" is being officially released by CBS/Paramount. Please do not support this illegal release with inferior quality. I'm sure the music alone is not in the public domain. How do they get away with this?
