TELEVISION’S LOST CLASSICS: VOLUME ONE REVIEWED
“Television’s Lost Classics: Volume One” comes with two TV stagings directed by Sidney Lumet. These outing served as early American TV showcases for powerhouses such as John Cassevetes and Robert Preston. The art of presenting compressed theater for the TV audience has been lost for ages until Clooney and others attempted to bring it back. Hell, the closest thing to it now are the lavish live musicals that NBC is putting on strategically throughout the year. By the way, “Jesus Christ Superstar” was just amazing with John Legend.
In regards to this disc, it’s the best HD conversion that you’re going to get from 60 year old kinescopes. If you thought the entertainment industry didn’t take care of Early Golden Age films, well the TV industry from its infancy to 1971 have something to show you. Most of the work has rotted or been destroyed. Now, when you get something as special like this. Something reconstructed to bring back a piece of entertainment life long since lost, you need to hold on.
