Great entertainment for a great price
10 August 2007 | by (river city, iowa) – See all my reviews

Purchased this at Wal-Mart for under $10.00 and it's worth every cent. Too bad more Variety specials aren't available on DVD.

This show isn't meant to be a 'written in stone' history lesson. It's just what the title suggests: "Swing Out, Sweet Land". Maybe because it is hosted by John Wayne that so many of his contemporary thespians are in this or because of just about every big name on NBC at the time, but I found it quite enjoyable.

I had heard of this special before seeing it because it is mentioned during an episode of my favorite show "All in the Family." So when I saw this I had to have it just to see what I had missed all those years ago (I was only nine and never had control of what to watch). Since they don't produce specials anymore I loved watching all the corny sketches and sincere songs; seeing all the true "stars" of days gone bye having a bit of fun. That's what "SO,SL" was too - fun with just a dash of patriotic preaching that is so politically incorrect these days. And that's a shame we've moved in that direction.
