Description by OLDIES.com:

Long before TV's "American Idol" became a mega-hit, there was one radio and television series that started the talent competition craze. It was called: "The Original Amateur Hour." Almost 50 major stars of movies, records, stage, screen and television got their start on this series. One was singer Pat Boone who hosts this entertaining glimpse into this landmark series. See the first performances of struggling amateurs such as Nick Carter, Gladys Knight, Ann-Margret, Robert Klein, Raul Julia, and others.

Product Description:

Both a radio and a television program, THE ORIGINAL AMATEUR HOUR was a variety show that offered amateur singers and performers their first big break in show business. Among the weird and wonderful acts that appeared some genuine talent emerged, and this program highlights both the hopeless novelty acts and the major stars who went on to find fame and fortune. Pat Boone--himself a product of the show--hosts this series of clips, which features nascent performances from future stars such as Gladys Knight, Frank Sinatra, and Raul Julia.
