Default Betty White in Black and White! (includes Date with the Angels) DVD Review

Betty White is a very colorful actress, but it all started in black and white. In Betty White in Black and White!, we get to see a sampling of Betty White's work in the earliest days of television. The DVD release from Video Services Corp. includes two episodes of Life With Elizabeth, two episodes of A Date With the Angels, an episode of the 1954 series, The Betty White Show, and two episodes of the 1958 series of the same title. The DVD showcases work that is rarely seen on TV today, and the 1958 series The Betty White Show was believed to even be completely lost until recently. But now, you can get a sampling of all four of these series on this DVD.

Default I can tell you that "THE BETTY WHITE SHOW" (1958)...

...was never "lost". Several collectors acquired most of the kinescopes from that brief 13 week comedy/variety series (which replaced "DATE WITH THE ANGELS" for the same sponsor, Plymouth, in February 1958). Betty's forte on that one was sketch comedy, which enabled her to play a variety of characters {"Olga Novak", the cleaning lady; "Teddy Morgan", the bachelorette; "Mrs. Franklin" of "The Franklins" (with Del Moore), a variation of her "LIFE WITH ELIZABETH" character, et. al.**.

I actually had the Christmas episode of "Date with the Angels" awhile back on VHS......would love if they released the whole series on DVD.....it's a good, funny show.
