Dated, But rather enjoyable
1 May 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I must say, This Variety series, Which aired on the DuMont Network, Is hardly the greatest show of the DuMont Network, But is still a fascinating time capsule. In the episode I watched, Which featured Jerry Lester and Jackie Robinson, There was a funny parody of Arthur Godfrey, and an interesting Magic Act. The Picture quality was fuzzy, and flickery. This was a true variety show, With a magic act, a trampolining act, comedy skits, Singing and Drama. It was broadcast live, and some mistakes are made. The show is very rare, and it should be noted that only a handful of episodes exist. After the DuMont Network went bankrupt, nobody preserved the kinescope recordings, and most were dumped into the east river in the 70's. Overall, it's an enjoyable TV series, and it's a shame most of the surviving episodes are not on DVD.
