A Must See Jan. 4 2009
By Leslie Huffman - Published on
Format: DVD
Young and old will love this movie and experience the life of Toots Shor. There is no question that his saloon was the "it" place in New York City and helped shaped an era. The photos are amazing and the stories and tales captivate viewers. The director, Kristi Jacobson did an exceptional job sharing his life. I highly recommend this film!

A must buy Oct. 3 2008
By Helga Campbell - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie takes you back to the New York's golden age, when women got thier hair done to go out to dinner and men wore suits to the go see the Dodger's play. In the middle of it all was Toots Shore, restaurant owner and friend of many, if you had a dollar you could go ot Toots and have a drink. My grandparents and parents told me of the great times they had there, and after seeing the film, I only wish I could've been there with them.....

Fabulous! Dec 26 2008
By M. Rizzuto - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie is absolutley one of the best documentaries I have seen in a long time. It is a feel good movie about one of the best saloons in NYC during the Golden Age. From playing pranks on Jackie Gleason to having a full blown fight with Joe DiMaggio (Toots called her a "whore"), Toots Shor was an unbelievable man with a personality we would all be envious of.

His saloon was THE place to be back in the 50's and 60's. No matter who you were, you were always welcome. NO velvet ropes at Toots, everyone was VIP!

Buy this DVD today and see some amazing interviews with legends like Whitey Ford and Frank Gifford. YOu won't be disappointed!

If you love vintage New York, get this June 25 2011
By Gracie - Published on
Format: DVD
I could watch this over and over. Loved everything about it. The only thing I didn't like is that I didn't want it to end. Buy it, you won't be sorry. It will make you wish you could live it.
Toot's Is Forever March 16 2010
By David V. Levine - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is one of the finest documentaries ever. It is in the classic class and anyone whoever hung-out at a fun lounge/restaurant that also catered to show biz and sports stars will see themselves reflected. I would have loved dropping into Toots Shor's place in its 40's and 50's heydays. No need to dream about it because Toot's great saloon has reopened forever on this DVD. See Jackie Gleason lying drunk on the floor. Walter Cronkite tells about Toots challenging Gleason to a foot race around the block. See DiMaggio and Monroe, Whitey Ford, Mantle, Berra, underworld and political figures. Even US Presidents dropped by.The narration and story are unfolding fun throughout the hour-plus. When it's over you are enriched by the memory of a huge man who loved people, gave of himself to all and was the super host for decades. There may never be another like him. Hail, Toots!
