Features the famous lost episode Return to Studio One. The stuff of showbiz legend, this famous "lost" episode of The Tonight Show (most of the tapes from the first 10 years of The Tonight Show were accidentally erased) defines the essence of live television. It is a kind of magic that can't be rehearsed, recycled, or reproduced, but thanks to this recent discovery, we can now return to Studio One to witness Johnny and his guests working witout a net. Originally recorded on two-inch videotape, the show was later transferred to film for broadcast on the Armed Forces Network. It was this film version that was eventually tracked down and identified among 10,000 Tonight Show tapes 54 stories underground in a working salt mine somewhere in the middle of Kansas. This show has not been seen since its original broadcast on March 6, 1969. This classic episode is considered by many as one of the most hilarious in TV history. In March of 1969, Carson took the show on the road from its home in New York to Burbank, California. On this particular night, Johnny and his guests had no idea what was in store for them when Bob Hope and Dean Martin decided to drop in announced, and stole the show. The spontaneous and unrehearsed antics that followed are now a part of show business history. Any fan of Johnny Carson will certainly have their own idea of what constitutes his best stuff. With over 30 years of material from the king of late-night TV to cull through, any collection is bound to be missing something. Whether or not yo...

Two hilarious programs from the outrageous megastar, Dame Edna Everage! First it's The Dame Edna Christmas Experience featuring celebrity guests Roger Moore, Lulu and Australian Cultural Attache Sir Les Patterson! And if that isn't enough, viewers are also invited to Mount Edna for A Night on Mount Edna, a hilarious visit to Dame Edna's Swiss chalet, featuring Gina Lollobrigida, Charlton Heston, Julio Iglesias and a chat with Mel Gibson in Dame Edna's sauna! Plus Dame Edna's Christmas Message to the Commonwealth! Christmas will never be the same! What more could one want under one's Christmas tree than Dame Edna Everage? The glorious alter-ego of Australian comic Barry Humphries sparkles in two Christmas specials, Dame Edna's Christmas Experience from 1987 and A Night on Mount Edna from 1990. Watching Dame Edna discuss skiing and valium with Gina Lollobridgida or interviewing Mel Gibson in her personal sauna--it's a cornucopia of daffy narcissism and off-the-wall double entendres. Charlton Heston appears as Dame Edna's houseboy, running to and from the kitchen, finally spilling cheese fondue in Julio Iglesias's lap. This is, as ever, the most giddy and surreal talk show of all time. But for sheer comic genius, it's one of the special features that really pays off: One More Audience with Dame Edna Everage is just Edna herself, alone on stage, breezily spinning out crazed and hilarious responses to audience questions. --Bret Fetzer

Thanks to Gray's advice and wisdom, the couples are better able to understand how men and women can fulfill each other's needs and fall in love again. The message for all of us is simple.
