Description by OLDIES.com:
After they ceased broadcasting in 1956, it is believed that DuMont destroyed most of their shows by dumping 35mm and 16mm kinescopes into the East River. However, a surprising amount of footage from the Gleason-hosted Cavalcade of Stars episodes has survived. Alpha Video has utilized the best elements available to present two full-length episodes from Gleason's tenure. Some picture and sound anomalies are present because of the age and rarity, but these two shows provide a captivating look at this important stepping stone in the career of "The Great One."
Victor Borge and The Last Chance Saloon: The famed comedy pianist demonstrates how classical composers wrote their masterpieces; Art Carney goes looking for help from a pair of firefighters played by the vaudeville team of Smith and Dale; Gleason plays a frontier marshal in a "Wild West" skit with Frances Langford.
Earl Wilson, Georgia Gibbs: Big-band vocalist Georgia Gibbs sings; Reginald Van Gleason III leads the orchestra in an insane performance; Jackie Gleason and Art Carney star in a "Charlie Bratten, the Loudmouth" skit; Gleason is honored for his work with amputees by nationally syndicated columnist Earl Wilson.
