USA Today - 09/25/1998
"...It opens with a vintage sustained Paar monologue -- another reminder why he was the man to watch as the '50s merged into the '60s..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Jack Paar, a pioneer in late night television, brought conversation, comedy and wit to millions of Americans who tuned in nightly to watch Jack, his celebrated guests and their antics. This exciting, two-hour documentary takes the viewer on a journey through the life and career of this TV originator - from his early days in radio, in the army, to his pre-"Tonight Show" years in Hollywood, through the golden era of the late-1950s and '60s when television was live and unrehearsed. This program includes rare, vintage television clips with Judy Garland, John F. Kennedy and Jonathan Winters; the comedy of Paar guests Bill Cosby, Godfrey Cambridge and Woody Allen; as well as many insights and provocative and original segments, including Paar's famous walk-off incident from "The Tonight Show" following being censored. This special edition DVD is like a visit to a television museum and a look at TV's best. It's a must for any collector!
