Wonderful Show!
21 November 2008 | by (Midwest) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent showcase for Judy and she is in her prime here on this mid-fifties GE Theater is a full half hour of songs that made her famous....the presentation is without to see this on You Tube in its entirety and would suggest anyone that is a fan to look it up!! I don't know where you could see it or if it is even available on DVD or not..Peter Gennaro, the famed dancer also performs and there is a special song done by Judy to her son Joey Luft...a lot of the same people that worked with her in her career were involved in this show, including Nelson Riddle, Sid Luft...etc. The orchestrations and material are wonderful for the period and include such numbers as April Showers, Last Night when we were in Love, and others....the original commercials for GE Electric are included with announcer Bill Goodwin, and Ronald Reagan appears at the beginning with his usual introductions, and closes the show with his preview of next weeks story, which will star Ray Milland in a dramatic presentation, which was the usual type of program on this series.
