DVD: Sid Caesar: Extra Portion
Nanette Fabray and Sid reprise their roles as Nan and Bob Victor, "The Commuters," in three funny and poignant sketches that offer a perspective on married suburban life: "Nan Hires a Maid," "Fur Coat," and "The White Rug." In "A Drunk There Was," which was based on Stella Dallas, Sid plays a man who succumbs to the effects of "demon rum." "What is Jazz" features a performance art piece choreographed by the great Jack Cole. "Mata Hari" showcases the Your Show Of Shows team's doubletalk skills. In "Pantomime of a Trained Seal," "The Toy Band" and "Grieg Piano Concerto," Sid and Imogene are brilliant at the art of creating something amazing from nothing. "The Health Food Restaurant" parodies the nascent and now ingrained health food craze. And "The Professor on Self Defense" and "The Professor on Magic" are two more sketches featuring the master-of-everything-but-expert-on-nothing, being expertly interviewed by roving reporter Carl Reiner. Lastly, "Take-a-Kuki Productions Presents Ubetu" took its name from the acclaimed Japanese film Ugetsu by the legendary Kenji Mizoguchi.
