And Other Artists -- Including Original Commercials and More...
When The Beatles stepped onto Sullivan's New York stage on Sunday, February 9, 1964 to make their American TV debut, 86 percent of all TVs on at that hour—73 million Americans—tuned in. It was the most-watched program in history to that point and remains one of the most-watched programs of all time. Nearly 50 years after the four landmark live performances of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, those legendary appearances with newly remastered audio and carefully restored video will finally be made available worldwide on home video. With a running time of more than 250 minutes, The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Beatles presents those shows uncut, including not only all of the other performances but also all of the original commercials. Also included is the cast of Oliver! (featuring a young Davy Jones) singing "I'll Do Anything for You."
