Hosted by Milton Berle, with guests Edgar Bergen and Peggy King. A variety show sponsored by Kraft. Entertaining. This NBC show was originally in colour, but my copy is in black-and-white. As far as I know, most live colour shows of the 1950s survive only in B&W, as the colour tapes were so expensive that they were erased to tape other programming, so only B&W kinescopes survive.
My usual DVD ripper wouldn't work with the DVD-R disc, so I had to use a different one, hence the encoding is not up to my usual standards.

Still funny today
They don't make shows like this anymore. Milton Berle, Peggy King, and Edgar Bergen doing live comedy and singing. Berle's delivery is always excellent, King's is a fantastic singer, and Bergen is wittier than most people realize. There are also vintage Kraft food commercials throughout it.
