"Christmas Classics (1955) ... Red Skelton ... Legend Films
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 12/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Legend Films presents "RED SKELTON: CHRISTMAS CLASSICS" (1955) (68 mins) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) --- now in COLOR and Glorious Black and White --- Richard Bernard "Red" Skelton was an American comedian who was best known as a top radio and television star from 1937 to 1971 --- Skelton's show business career began in his teens as a circus clown and went on to vaudeville, Broadway, films, radio, TV, night clubs and casinos, while pursuing another career as a painter.

In 1951, NBC beckoned Skelton to bring his radio show to television --- His characters worked even better on screen than on radio --- Television also provoked him to create his second best-remembered character, "Freddie the Freeloader," a traditional tramp whose appearance suggested the elder brother of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus clown Emmett Kelly --- Announcer/voice actor Art Gilmore, who voiced numerous movie trailers in Hollywood in the 1940s and '50s, became the announcer on the show, with David Rose and his orchestra providing the music --- A hit instrumental for Rose, called, "Holiday for Strings," was used as Skelton's TV theme song.

Besides "Freddie the Freeloader," Skelton's other television characters included, "Cauliflower McPugg," "Clem Kaddiddlehopper," the, "Mean Widdle Boy," "Sheriff Deadeye," "George Appleby," and "San Fernando Red." --- Sometimes, during the sketches, Skelton would break up or cause his guest stars to laugh, not only on the live telecasts but on the taped programs as well. Skelton's weekly sign off -- "Good night and may God bless" -- (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

1. Red Skelton (aka: Richard Bernard Skelton)
Date of Birth: 18 July 1913 - Vincennes, Indiana
Date of Death: 17 September 1997 - Rancho Mirage, California

1. Legend Films Trailers
2. Red Skelton Comedy Christmas Classics

and many more - plus Jack Benny and Dinah Shore.

The complete print was restored and colorized by Legend Films, using the latest technology --- Although the Legend Films release was advertised under its reissue title, both the color and black and white prints featured the original title and opening credits --- Legend Films can restore, colorize and release many of the classic earliest black and white films --- a patented coloring and remastering process makes each film picture perfect plus more vivd than ever --- no one can resist collecting every title that Legend Films releases.

Hats off and thanks to Barry B. Sandrew Ph.D. (Founder, COO & CTO) and his Legend Films Staff --- looking forward to more high quality releases from the vintage era of the '20s, '30s & '40s --- order your copy now from Amazon where there are plenty of copies available on DVD --- if you enjoyed this title, why not check out Legend Films where they are experts in releasing long forgotten films and treasures to the collector.
