Rip-off of previous Gleason documentary
This documentary is a complete copy of "The Great Gleason" from 1986, released by the same company (MPI) that released this documentary. There is not one new thing in this doc. Basically, MPI falsely advertises a new product and then re-releases an old one, hoping nobody will notice that nothing is new. They long ago discontinued "The Great Gleason". Therefore MPI cashes in twice and doesn't have to let out new video. The people who did not see the first release (or don't hunt to buy it) don't know the difference. The ones who buy it having seen the first one are stuck with it. This is disappointing because they have own the rights to The Jackie Gleason Show and they have many many unreleased clips and episodes in their possession. Unless you are desperate to see this doc., don't buy it or buy it again. Get the original, better quality version (which is sad because this is a DVD and the other is a VHS). The narration is much better, the actual video clips are better quality (and lengthened) as well. You can purchase a copy cheaply at amazon or on ebay.
