It is fascinating to watch these interviews with celebrities in their own homes. The look of love on the face of Sammy Davis Jr. while introducing his grandmother, or of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis when introducing their wives and children, is alone worth the price of this 3-DVD set.
Disc 3: LEGENDARY ENTERTAINERS
Milton Berle / Jonathan Winters / Sammy Davis, Jr. / Jerry Lewis / Dean Martin / Frank Sinatra / Sid Caesar / Liberace / Carol Channing / Helen Hayes
I just found Disc 3 in our town library. While I didn't catch every one of the interviews the ones I did watch were fascinating. Time capsule stuff. What was of interest to viewers in 1956 may seem dated or peculiar today. For instance Sammy Davis Jr.'s fascination with his clothes closet was curious. As was Frank Sinatra's lack of familiarity with his new home. It appeared that he was seeing some parts of the house for the first time.
