Did You Know?

Goofs

The title is a grammatical error. As it appears on screen it suggests a possessive noun where there is none. The apostrophe should be before the 20 to take the place of the missing "19" in "1920". If corrected, it would be "The Roaring '20s". See more »

DVD set of entire Series
17 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent TV show set in the Twenties with great cast and stories. I remember seeing this in the 60's and loved the musical numbers in the Charleston Club. Could we please have the entire series on DVD including songs sung by Dorothy Provine listed on each volume. As of now, all we have are a few uploaded to YouTube. I bought the new CD from Amazon which is a compilation of songs from the show. However, many of us would like to see the numbers as well. Warner Bros. for some reason has not released a number of shows from the 60's which were popular such as Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, etc. Why should this be? There are so many series released that are not as good. Thank you.
