Beatles on Ed Sullivan
A truly energizing and fun DVD. Almost doesn't seem real that life was ever so innocent and filled with joy and confidence. These shows bring back an incredible time in American history and popular culture. You can almost re-live these experiences ( the way we all did when we saw this on television ) when the world changed it's axis at the precise moment Ed Sullivan threw out his arm and and we saw - for the first time - the Beatles! And the world was theirs!

And we were all better for it - and more connected than ever.

A minor footnote:

A performance from the Broadway production of "Oliver!" features a very young (and professional) Davey Jones who less than three years later would be the "cute one" in an absurd children's show called "The Monkees" - a supposed take-off on the Beatles.

Overall, the shows presented here give us a view of what real live television was like - and when there actually was a curtain on the stage. The auditorium where the historic events took place can still be visited in New York, is still in use as a production facility, under the name " The Ed Sullivan Theatre ".
