The Best of I Love Lucy Collection (Volumes 1 and 2) [VHS]

The Best of I Love Lucy Collection (Volumes 1 and 2) [VHS] Lowest new price: $5.99
Lowest used price: $3.92
Brand: Paramount Home Video

This 3-tape collection compiles some of the most beloved episodes of one of the classic sitcoms of American television. This box set includes the following: "Lucy Does a TV Commercial" ("Vitamaeatavegamin") "Lucy's Italian Movie" (the "grape-stomping" episode), "Lucy Does the Tango," "The Freezer," "Harpo Marx," "Job Switching" (the "chocolate factory" episode), "L.A. At Last," "Lucy is Enceinte," "The Ballet," and "Ethel's Home Town."

The third tape contains FINDING LUCY, an 86-minute documentary about the First Lady of Laughter that is unavailable anywhere else.

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of I Love Lucy in 2001, this two-volume collection delivers exactly what it promises. Decades after their original broadcasts, these 10 episodes are as fresh and funny as ever, paying tribute to the timeless perfection of Lucy, Desi Arnaz, and their longtime costars Vivian Vance and William Frawley, whose appealing chemistry created comedic greatness and television history. Lucille Ball herself claimed that "Lucy Does a T.V. Commercial" (in which Lucy gets hilariously inebriated on "Vitameatavegamin") was her crowning achievement, and who’s going to argue? Or maybe you prefer Lucy and Harpo Marx recreating the legendary mirror routine from Duck Soup. Or her star-struck encounter with William Holden in Hollywood. That’s the blessing of this collection: Five of the episodes come from I Love Lucy’s second season (1952), but there’s not a clunker in the bunch. This is pure gold from start to finish, setting the standard for every sitcom that followed. Also included in this set is the bonus video American Masters documentary, Finding Lucy, which chronicles Ball's journey to becoming America's favorite redhead. --Jeff Shannon

Dial M for Murder [VHS]

Dial M for Murder [VHS] Lowest new price: $3.46
Lowest used price: $1.98

A suave tennis player (Ray Milland) plots the perfect murder, the dispatching of his wealthy wife (Grace Kelly), who is having an affair with a writer (Robert Cummings). Amazingly, the wife manages to stave off her attacker, a twist of fate that challenges the hubby's talent for improvisation. Alfred Hitchcock wisely stuck to the stage origins of Dial M for Murder, ignoring the temptation to "open up" the material from the home of the unhappy couple. The result may not be one of Hitchcock's deepest films, but it's a thoroughly engaging chamber movie. It also features Grace Kelly at her loveliest, the same year she made Rear Window with Hitchcock. Dial M for Murder was filmed in the briefly trendy 3-D process, and Hitchcock shot some scenes to bring out the depth of the 3-D field; it's especially good for the nail-biting attempted murder of Kelly, and her desperate reach for a pair of scissors that seems to be just outside her grasp. However, the film was rarely shown with the proper 3-D projection, going out "flat" instead (a 1980 reissue restored the process for a limited theatrical release). Dial M was remade in 1998 as A Perfect Murder, a film that changed and expanded the material, with no improvement on the clean, witty original. --Robert Horton

Sesame Street - Do the Alphabet [VHS]

Sesame Street - Do the Alphabet [VHS] Lowest new price: $39.17
Lowest used price: $2.99
List price: $9.98

When Baby Bear must learn his alphabet in one day, Big Bird patiently takes him under his wing in Do the Alphabet. Only "The Method," (a hilarious combination of dance, song, visualization, and group therapy) can help Baby Bear on such short notice. The result is 40 minutes of ABC's Sesame Street style, where vibrant educational cartoons, enthusiastic kids, famous guest stars (here, Billy Joel), and harmonizing Muppets make lasting educational impressions. Children age 2 to 6 will enjoy the upbeat musical numbers dedicated to various letters; a favorite segment features the Boogie Woogie Piggies and their flashy rendition of the alphabet song. Throughout the well-paced show, Big Bird offers just the right blend of coaching and friendship, much like the ace support group leader he's mildly spoofing. Hats off to Sesame Street for helping Baby Bear--and his viewing audience--understand that learning takes time, patience, and a team effort. --Liane Thomas

Sesame Street's cheerful redhead chuckles his way through this delightful 50-minute compilation of three favorite "Elmo's World" episodes. First come the babies: real babies, Muppet babies, and animal babies. With help from Mister Noodle, a cast of Muppets, and video vignettes featuring humans, Elmo discovers what babies can do and how to play with them. Next come the dogs. Once again, Elmo's on the move--this time to share important tips about respecting the family pet. The final episode examines life on the farm. Viewers will observe youngsters accomplishing daily farm chores as well as Muppet farmers and barn animals punning around. As Elmo bops around his house (simply drawn and "furnished" with color crayon sketches), he chats with Dorothy the pet goldfish, poses questions to Mister Noodle, and tunes in to his friendly television for helpful cartoons presented by "The Baby Channel," "The Dog Channel," and of course, "The Farm Channel." Educational and entertaining for the younger crowd, each segment explores its topic using a variety of creative, quick-paced methods, enhanced by an upbeat soundtrack. (Ages 3 to 6) --Liane Thomas

All About Eve [VHS]

All About Eve [VHS] Lowest new price: $2.29
Lowest used price: $1.01
List price: $5.99

Showered with Oscars, this wonderfully bitchy (and witty) comedy written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz concerns an aging theater star (Bette Davis) whose life is being supplanted by a wolf-in-sheep's-clothing ingenue (Anne Baxter) whom she helped. This is a film for a viewer to take in like a box of chocolates, packed with scene-for-scene delights that make the entire story even better than it really is. The film also gives deviously talented actors such as George Sanders and Thelma Ritter a chance to speak dazzling lines; Davis bites into her role and never lets go. A classic from Mankiewicz, a legendary screenwriter and the brilliant director of A Letter to Three Wives, The Barefoot Contessa, and Sleuth. --Tom Keogh

Shirley Temple Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (Exclusive Color Version) [VHS]

Shirley Temple Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (Exclusive Color Version) [VHS] Lowest new price: $1.94
Lowest used price: $0.35
List price: $8.70

Shirley Temple shines as a young radio entertainer in this 1938 Darryl Zanuck film inspired by Kate Wiggin's classic novel. In a role perfectly suited to her song and dance talents, Temple plays the "very self-reliant" Rebecca Winstead, a precocious pixie who wins the audition to become Crackling Grain Flakes "Little Miss America" for a new radio broadcast. Fame is fleeting, however, when she moves to Sunnybrook Farm to live with Aunt Miranda (Helen Westley), an overbearing curmudgeon who absolutely forbids any entanglements in show business. Since the show must go on, it will require some slapstick tomfoolery and secretive shenanigans that turn an otherwise straightforward story into an uproarious cat-and-mouse comedy. Sunnybrook Farm is reminiscent of Temple's earlier Poor Little Rich Girl (1936), as it reunites her with co-stars Jack Haley and Gloria Stuart. The soundtrack includes Temple's legendary songs, "An Old Straw Hat," "On the Good Ship Lollipop," and "Animal Crackers in My Soup," ending with a grandiose military dance number, "The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," performed by Temple and renowned tap-dancer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. The DVD offers two viewing options: a remastered colorized version, or the original (restored) black and white. (All ages) --Lynn Gibson

Oklahoma! [VHS] Lowest new price: $3.17
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $12.98

Set in the Oklahoma Territory in the early 1900's, this joyous celebration of frontier life is a story of tender romance and dangerous passion. Gordon MacRae is Curly, a sunny, good-natured ranch hand, and Shirley Jones is Laurey Williams, the farmer's daughter he loves. Rod Steiger is he menacing Jud, who tries to comes between them. The first Rodgers and Hammerstein collaboration, this Academy Award winner for Best Score features the classic songs "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "The Surrey With The Fringe On Top" and "People Will Say We're In Love."

The hit Broadway musical from the 1940s gets a lavish if not always exciting workout in this 1955 film version directed by old lion Fred Zinnemann (High Noon). Gordon MacRae brings his sterling voice to the role of cowboy Curly, and Shirley Jones plays Laurie, the object of his affection. The Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top," "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," and "People Will Say We're in Love," and Agnes DeMille provides the buoyant choreography. Among the supporting cast, Gloria Grahame is memorable as Ado Annie, the "girl who cain't say no," and Rod Steiger overdoes it as the villainous Jud. --Tom Keogh
