"Ed Sullivan fans and American patriots will love this DVD/VHS compilation of Joel Grey singing Yankee Doodle Dandy and You're A Grand Old Flag from 1968 appearance. YOu can't forget Kate Smith singing God Bless America. For those Lincoln fans, historians, and school teachers, you will be pleased to hear Henry Fonda recite the Lincoln Address for Lincoln's birthday as well as Carl Sandburg, Lincoln Historian, and Charlton Heston who gives the second Lincoln Speech. Sandburg recites about Lincoln's humble beginnings in Illinois. The West Point Glee Club also sings America the Beautiful. Young Loretta Lynn sings God Bless America Again. The U.S. Army Fife and Drump sings "Off We Go" (Air Force), "Shores of TRipoli" (Marines), "Anchors Aweigh (Navy), and "The Army Goes ROlling Along" with Hee Haw's Roy Clark and others in the celebration. RObert Merrill sings America, The Beautiful; a patriotic medley by DAle Evans and Roy Rogers; The Gettysburg Address recited by Dame Judith Anderson, the U.S. Army Drill Team, The Star Spangled Banner by the Oberkerchin Choir, and God Bless America by Irving Berlin. I bought all of them at a local drug store for history teachers at my school and for my language arts class to study Lincoln."

"The clips from many of the Ed Sullivan Shows I watched....and two on which I appeared (as part of a group)....were a wonderful trip down memory lane....and a pleasant reminder of the more genteel days of televison when artists with talent actually entertained us in a wide variety of ways. Two thumbs up!!"
