A Great Start

"This is a fantastic collection of seven episodes of the Colgate Comedy Hour featuring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The telecast, with Dean and Jerry as hosts, ran from around 1951-1954. This collection is filled with several funny skits and memorable songs, as well as a stellar supporting cast of classic
Hollywood film stars. We are also treated to vintage Colgate commercials, as these specials are left entirely intact.As a bonus the duos classic "At War with the Army" is features on disc one, and disc five finds "At the Movies with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis", where several of the comedy teams sixteen feature films are featured using the original (or re-release) trailers. In short, this collection is a great start to what will hopefully lead to Dean and Jerry's entire cinematic catalog being released to DVD, as well as that of comedian Jerry Lewis's entire solo career. A treasure for any fan of the duo, or a lover of good entertainment."
Great Collection and Price...

"This is a wonderful selection of the Martin and Lewis Colgate Comedy Hours. The show used revolving hosts, and Eddie Cantor and Martin and Lewis were by far the most popular. For those that are only familiar with the team through their films, this collection will be a revelation. The duo's television appearances are only a slightly toned down version of their live act-and that was legendary. The show dates are not indicated on the packaging, so here they are: 1-2/4/51, 2-1/25/53, 3-11/4/51, 4-4/29/51, 5-12/19/54 (next to last appearance), 6-11/13/55 (last appearance and the next-to-last episode of the show), 7-No date can be found, but it is the 8th Anniversary of the team on the Comedy Hour, broadcast from Atlantic City. The set also includes trailers for some of their films-great stuff, especially for the films filmed in VistaVision, where the process is promoted as much as the team. ("Bigger, Brighter, Funnier!") Grab this one!"
Martin & Lewis... they're delightful!

"Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin are always a treat to watch! And this DVD collection shows seven hours of the couple's best gags and songs presented on the Colgate Comedy Hour. And to top it off, it includes the movie "At war with the Army". If you are a Martin & Lewis fan, you'll love this DVD collection. And if you're not a fan, you might as well become one. I've been a big fan of Jerry Lewis since I can remember, and here he shows why he's considered America's best comedian. Well... to me, he's the best."
Nothing compares to Martin and Lewis

"This DVD collection is proof that dated (as well as more purifying) comdey often is appreciated today more than it was when it was in its prime. The deliveries of gags and one liners between Martin and Lewis have always been, to me, more hilarious than anything in today's world of comedy. The skits they pull off here are sometimes better than in any movie they were appearing in together. This is when the dynamic between the two was fresh, and at its best. You truly will not be disappointed."
