|Oswald - Best Buddies [VHS]
Lowest used price: $17.25
List price: $9.95
In this quartet of friendship stories, the first two focus on the relationship between the blue octopus and his best friend Henry the penguin. When Henry's cousin from the Frozen North comes to town, Oswald feels left out as the birds bond over mackerel and polka. In the next story, he faces every child's fear when Henry decides to move north with his cousin. But unlike real life, Henry has a change of heart and decides to stay with his friends only to fight with Daisy in the next episode after she uses his spoon as a shovel. The final episode finds all the friends overcoming obstacles to see a musical act together. This Nick Jr. series features kid-friendly voices from the expected--cartoon veteran Debi Derryberry and The Wonder Years' Fred Savage--as well as the unexpected: Laverne and Shirley's David Lander and early SNL regular Laraine Newman.

"Attention must be paid" to this abbreviated but superb 1966 television adaptation by Arthur Miller of his Pulitzer Prize-winning modern tragedy, starring the incomparable Lee J. Cobb and Mildred Dunnock recreating their original Broadway roles as the Lomans. In a career-defining performance, Cobb portrays the suffering Willy Loman--the middle-aged man at the end of his emotional rope--with Dunnock equally impressive as his patient wife, Linda. George Segal and James Farentino play their disillusioned sons, Biff and Happy. Shattering and unforgettable, this landmark television production has been digitally remastered and will endure for all generations to come. "In a word, superb." --New York Times. With Gene Wilder as Bernard.
Lee J. Cobb and George Segal star in this moving 1966 television adaptation of one of America's greatest plays. For those unfamiliar with Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning story, Willy Loman is a salesman desperately hustling for a living even as he slides into old age. A visit from his son, Biff, brings old hopes and boiling resentments to the surface. Cobb and Mildred Dunnock reprise their original Broadway roles as Willy and Linda Loman, giving exceptional performances--their portrayal of the Lomans' symbiotic marriage is remarkable. Viewers more familiar with Segal's comic work will be pleasantly surprised by his excellent Biff, and a young Gene Wilder turns up in a comic and sensitive turn as Bernard. This production, though slightly abridged, was adapted for television by Miller himself, so none of the meat is sacrificed. An exquisite production of a classic play that will be satisfying to new viewers and old fans alike. --Ali Davis

|Caillou - Dr. Caillou [VHS]
Lowest used price: $4.33
Caillou visits the dentist, nurses his father back to health, and gets a scratchy throat from playing in the rain in the two episodes that make up this installment of the PBS series. Caillou (pronounced KY-yoo) is an animated, in all respects, 4-year-old whose "adventures" are the stuff of everyday preschool life. Meanwhile his stuffed animals have their own lives, and their own segments in puppetry form. Here, Teddy gets the flu--and assistance from his fellow stuffed animals--and Rexy helps Squirrel find something lost. The variety-show format of this 39-minute video is augmented by documentary segments in which real kids practice good health by swimming, eating fruit, and brushing their teeth. A song and dance troupe of kids further enhances each episode, here donning Western gear and singing about lost teddy bears. (It'll make sense to your youngsters.) (Ages 2 to 6) --Kimberly Heinrichs

|A. Einstein: How I See the World [VHS]
Lowest new price: $10.95
Lowest used price: $2.25
List price: $17.12
This biographical treatment of Albert Einstein accurately portrays him not as a detached physicist, but rather as a man deeply concerned with social and political ideas. Newsreel footage shows him soon after he relocated to the United States after fleeing the Nazis in his native Germany. He became active in social causes (and is even seen at some lighthearted social events), and those who knew him reminisce about his development as a social thinker. The film notes how Einstein's fear of Hitler's harnessing the potential destructive power of the atom altered his pacifism to some degree and led him to urge President Roosevelt to start what would become the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb. The depth of Einstein's mind as it stretched into areas outside the realms of math and science is covered well, and this film, which is eloquently narrated by actor William Hurt, provides an insightful look into one of the most fascinating characters in history. --Robert J. McNamara
