Phyllis Diller: Not Just Another Pretty Face
Wild-haired comedienne Phyllis Diller is featured in a hilarious collection of clips highlighting her best-loved routines and featuring an all-star collection of special guests in this release that's a must have for any loyal fan of the self-depreciating comic diva. In the 1960s Diller became a beloved staple of television variety and talk shows. Now fans can see all of the most memorable moments from Diller's glory days as the outrageous funny lady offers tips on housekeeping and marriage maintenance and recounts her marriage to husband Fang in her own unique, inimitable style. Special guest stars include Don Rickles, Dean Martin, Frankie Avalon, and Annette Funicello. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Groucho Marx & Red Foxx
Experience the classic comic styles of two legendary funnymen in a double dose of comedy that's sure to have something for everyone. In a performance captured shortly before he rocketed to fame as the crusty junkman of the hit television series Sanford and Son, comedian Redd Roxx takes the stage to offer a politically incorrect dose of comedy fueled by unique observations about slavery, race relations, poverty, the Vietnam War, the fairer sex, and dwarves. In the second performance, deadpan cigar aficionado Groucho Marx playfully interviews a studio audience while fielding a variety of questions from announcer Ed Jordan. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Tim Conway: Timeless Comedy
Laugh through a collection of classic comedy clips not seen since originally airing over thirty years ago in this release featuring the very best of beloved comic icon Tim Conway. From Dag Hereford to Dorf, Conway has always had a knack for classic characters. Now fans can find out just how Conway rocketed to stardom as he assumes the role of Dag Hereford, the self-professed expert on everything who isn't afraid to offer his opinions on fine wines, does his best to stay in the saddle as a horserace jockey, and puts the pedal to the metal as an ultra-competitive racecar driver. This is classic Conway, and with a special collection of guest stars including Bing Crosby, Phil Harris, Ernie Anderson, and Kate Smith it's guaranteed to keep longtime fans in stitches while introducing the versatile comic star to a whole new generation of fans. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Dick Van Dyke: In Rare Form
Get a glimpse of comic legend Dick Van Dyke before he rose to fame in such features as Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with this collection of vintage performances rarely seen since they originally aired in the 1950s. In addition to the song and dance routines, monologues, and pantomimes of The Pat Boone Chevy Showroom - presented here with new introductions by Van Dyke himself - classic routines such as "Mailing a Letter on a Windy Corner," "The Tennis Champ," and "The Pet Cat," as well as special musical performances by Boone and Shirley Jones ensure that longtime fans will be able to relive their favorite comic moments while sharing these treasured clips with a while new generation of fans. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
