    I had been looking forward to a DVD version of the Red Skelton TV specials, yet I’m disappointed that these are the shortened (edited for commercial & announcement time) versions which have several sections of each program removed, making them about 15 mins. shorter than the full (live performance) VHS tape releases. The quality of the video is acceptable, however, and is well worth getting if you don’t already own the VHS tapes of the TV specials … (just can’t understand why the publisher didn’t put the full versions in the collection … probably cheaper this way …)

    EXCUSE MY DUST, (1951) The funniest car race ever is long over due for release on DVD. It features Red Skelton at his very best, Sally Forrest, Macdonald Carey and William Demarest in brilliant Technicolor and 81 minutes of extreme comedy. I owned a copy on 16mm Eastman Color SP, but sadly it faded by 1990. So Mr. MGM, how about a pristine print of EXCUSE MY DUST on DVD? Any other takers?

    I watched the Red Skelton Show every Sunday night when I was a child! And I still love to watch him. I use this DVD to teach pantomime to my first year Drama students.
