Eddie Albert (Actor), Janet Blair (Actor) - A Connecticut Yankee 1955 TV Production - Broadway Musicals DVD - The Rodgers and Hart musical comedy stars Eddie Albert, Janet Blair, Gale Sherwood and Boris Karloff. The show is really timeless, beginning in the modern day - at a wedding - and traveling back 1500 years to the Age of Knighthood. There are lots (I mean LOTS) of puns in bother the script and Hart's lyrics and it will often remind you of the recent smash Broadway hit, Spamalot. For the 1943 production Hart wrote the macabre lyrics to To Keep My Loved Alive, while classic songs like Thou Swell and My Heart Stood Still are here too. Since the Oldsmobile commercials have been nicely excised, the 90-minute show runs 77-minutes. And it goes by fast. The cast is superb with Eddie Albert - who many know only from the TV series Green Acres where he couldn't display his singing talents - and Janet Blair in the leads, followed quickly by Gale Sherwood (who, along with John Conte, appeared in The Desert Song) and dancers Bambi Linn and Rod Alexander This 1955 live telecast was presented as part of the series Max Liebman Specatculars. It has a great cast: Eddie Albert (Martin), Janet Blair (Sandy), Gale Sherwood (Morgan Le Fay), John Conte (Sir Kay), Beverlee Dennis (Switchboard Operator), dancers Bambi Linn and Rod Alexander (Alexander is also the choreographer), and Boris Karloff as King Arthur. The whole production is put together with great refinement and spontaneity. Adapted for television's time limitations, there is just one significant loss: On a Desert Island With Thee is gone. But nearly the rest of the score (in the 1943 version) is intact, including first-class stagings of some of the bigger numbers, like Ye Lunchtime Follies and The Camelot Follies, and beautiful renderings of the biggest hits, Thou Swell and My Heart Stood Still. Great to see this finally out on DVD. Whoever thought of putting these on DVD should be congratulated. What a way to preserve them and get them out to a waiting and willing audience. My interest in musical theatre goes a long way back and it's so great to see theswe shortened versions that TV did in its hey-day. It also give us a chance to see someone like Eddie Albert in something other then what most people know him from : Green Acres. Now I'm not slamming that show, I think it's a comedy classic, but these actors started somewhere and here it is. Let's hope more of these TV musicals get redone.
