Two classic, episodic television variety hours – holiday extravaganzas featuring legendary, all-star casts – come together in Christmas With Danny Kaye, available for the first time on DVD.
As one of the stars of the enduring holiday classic White Christmas, Danny Kaye became synonymous with the holiday season. From 1963 to 1967, Kaye hosted the Emmy Award-winning, top-rated television variety series on CBS, The Danny Kaye Show.
This holiday DVD collection brings together two memorable Christmas episodes in their entirety, unseen since their original ’60s network TV broadcast: the first (aired Christmas day, 1963) features the legendary Nat King Cole and Mary Tyler-Moore; and the second (Dec. 21, 1966) features Peggy Lee and Wayne Newton.
Musical highlights include Nat King Cole’s iconic performance of “The Christmas Song” (“Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”), as well as a pair of swinging duets of “Jingle Bells,” featuring Kaye with Nat King Cole and Peggy Lee. Also featured are solos by Cole of the My Fair Lady classic “Get Me to the Church on Time” and Lee performing “Here’s That Rainy Day” and “So What’s New?”
