Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 8 ratings.
Decades later it was good to see these again. Although I'm 59 I still vaguely remember the show, whether some of these were rebroadcasted later in the 50's I'm not sure. Nonetheless, those folks who are interested in visiting yesteryear TV shows will not be disappointed. The DVD transfer quality is very good, especially considering these days that copies were still available.
My wife has never seen them before and she is really enjoying them. So when you get bored with your 500 channels just pop one in. We bought the 4-volume set and are pleased.
We will be buying the serial version next.
