Storyline

This collection comprises the four episodes of the Ed Sullivan Show from 1964 and 1965 that featured performances by The Beatles. The episodes are shown in their entirety - including commercials - and while the Fab Four are the main attraction, many well known performers were included on the various nights: impressionist Frank Gorshin, entertainer Tessie O'Shea, singer-actress Mitzi Gaynor, band leader Cab Calloway and comedian Soupy Sales among others. The focus is primarily on the Beatles who sing some 20 songs over the four broadcasts. Written by garykmcd

A Perfect Record of History
23 March 2005 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is all four Ed Sullivan Shows on which the Beatles appeared in 1964 and 1965 complete with all the other performers and the original commercials. It is fascinating to not only see the Beatles singing about six songs per show, but also to see the type of entertainment that America liked during those years. In fact, it gives us a glimpse of what entertained America before The Beatles changed everything, since many of the acts you will see were well known before the Beatles. One notable performance from 2/9/64 is Frank Gorshin, an impressionist, acting out what it would be like if "the stars ran the country" and then giving us his rendition of Frank Sinatra as President of the United States and a large cast of others as Secretary of War, Senators, etc. It was downright prophetic. Also entertaining is the ever-so-brief commercial breaks. After watching a whole show, you will crave biscuits, brownies and Lipton Tea (Orange Pekoe flavor)- and you'll be convinced that a certain pain reliever will cure depression, anxiety and fatigue as well as headaches.
