Product Description

South Pacific � Television Miniseries Event The Love. The Story. The Magic Of America�s Greatest Musical Epic. �South Pacific Is Gorgeous To Look At And Listen To!� � Newsweek Six-time Academy � Award Nominee Glenn Close and two-time Grammy� Award Winner Harry Connick, Jr. lead a sensational cast in an all-new version of Rodgers & Hammerstein�s beloved musical South Pacific. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by James Michener, and featuring some of the finest music ever written for the stage (Some Enchanted Evening, I�m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair and Younger Than Springtime), South Pacific spins a romantic tale of love and loss on a tropical island naval base during the Second World War. Gypsy � Television Mini-Series Event " A must have for Midler fans, Gypsy fans, and anyone who loves the musical stage." � Emmy�, Grammy� and Golden Globe� award winner Bette Midler (Beaches, Ruthless People, Down & Out in Beverly Hills) stars as the world�s most relentless stage mother, who lovingly but unremittingly drives her two daughters, June and Louise, and their small, rag-tag vaudeville troupe, across America, from theater to theater, in search of success. This movie musical extravaganza brings the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee to life through spectacular production and unforgettable songs as Everything�s Coming Up Roses, Small World and Together. At its heart, GYPSY is a landmark among filmed musicals, in which one of the world�s most renowned stars, Bette Midler, redefines one of the Broadway theater�s classic roles for a new generation. The result makes for movie and musical history and will leave you asking for an encore!

When Musicals Were Musicals! Dec 31 2013
By LEE - Published on
Verified Purchase
Saw the Glen Close SOUTH PACIFIC television version & enjoyed it much. Its well done. Glen does a stellar singing job & takes on Mary Martin's nuances. GYPSY? I'm very familiar with this musical. Have seen it on Broadway several times with different Momma Roses. I do daresay, that while Bette has a bit of a 'struggle' with a few song ranges, she absolutely NAILS the performance within EACH song and outside of it as Momma. Loved Herbie. Unexpectedly fell head over heels for Tulsa's 'All I Need Now Is The Girl'; a vivid athletic virtuoso dance performance. Nureyev-worthy. They kept almost the entire original script. Good good fun. Bette is heart-rendering as Momma Rose. She is earnestly LIKABLE which separates her from some of the others who've taken Rose on. ROSES TURN is gut-wrenching. Good quality DVD.

Worthy TV versions of 2 all time great musicals for less than the price one great DVD musical. June 27 2014
By D. Reardon - Published on

These are very decent TV versions of two of the masterpiece musicals from Broadway's Golden Age. It's probably impossible to do them badly with any kind of network TV budget behind them and decent casting. Mitzi Gaynor in the movie version of South Pacific had to beat out Jack Warner's first choice: Elizabeth Taylor. Even stranger, Doris Day was passed over reportedly because she wouldn't "audition" a few songs for some W.B front office suits attending a party she was at. Mitzi Gaynor was fine, but the movie version might have been even better with Doris Day in the role. Glen Close in this TV version is also fine, but Juanita Hall's Bloody Mary shoes remain a little too big for anybody else to ever fill. One could debate forever whether the love interest in the movie version, France Nuyen, or the nameless beauty in this TV version, is the more breathtaking to behold.

Ethel Merman's performance, in Gypsy's original Broadway cast, is considered by many to be one of great major musical performances of all time (think Rex Harrison and Yul Bryner). If it weren't for Ethel Merman, Bette Midler in this TV version might be my own first choice for Mama Rose. And Peter Riegert seems way more appropriately cast here than, say, Karl Malden was in the movie version (fine actor though he was).

Heck of a bargain getting these two war horse musicals, more than adequately performed, in a single DVD package for a rock bottom price.

Entertaining TV productions of 2 great musicals July 9 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
Both productions are given full film treatment, featuring two leads who are ideal for the roles they play -- Bette Midler as Rose and Glenn Close as Nellie Forbush. Would be a five-star review except for the fact that Mill Creek made it a no frills package. Just the disks. A sheet with lists of musical numbers and performers would have helpful.

So-So versions, but the dvd cheap Dec 5 2013
By Gary C. Williams - Published on
Verified Purchase
The movie "South Pacific" is so much better then the tv version in every way. "Gypsy'' was good mainly because of Bette Midler. Neither production was more then just ok as far as video and sound. The dvd was so cheap I couldn't pass it up.
Good deal. April 22 2014

TV adaptations of two of Broadway's greatest musicals at a great price. Well worth watching if for no other reason than Bette Midler's performance as "Madame Rose".
