The Bill O'Reilly interview with me and Shelley Fabares was bumped and didn't air when it was supposed to, but it will now air on December 5th on "The O'Reilly Factor." Check for times in your area. The 50th Anniversary release of the entire first season of "The Donna Reed Show" has created quite a buzz, and Shelley and I got a kick out of discussing our brother/sister act with Bill.
October 21, 2008 - DVD INFORMATION
You did it, my friends. By letter and petition your hard work and persistence has paid off. The Donna Reed Show, Season One, will be released by Arts Alliance America on October 28th, 2008, just in time for the 50th Anniversary of Donna Reed’s debut on ABC.
If ever a classic television show needed a revival, now’s the time for a return to “family values” and “decency.” There was a time when American entertainment was actually good for you. See what you’ve been missing.
37 Classic episodes with the stone family, digitally remastered for the first time ever on DVD! Academy Award winning actress Donna Reed established herself with television audiences nationwide in 1958 as the new symbol of American motherhood. Families tuned in every week to watch her portray loving mother and housewife, Donna Stone.
The Donna Reed Show premiered September 24, 1958 on ABC, and has remained a family sitcom favorite ever since. The show’s story places the Stone family in the fictional Midwestern small town of Hilldale, where Donna encounters typical family problems and life experiences. Whether it’s hosting a dinner party for friends, catering to her husband’s needs, or reveling in the activities of her children, the perfect housewife does it all with style and grace.
The cast also features Carl Betz as Dr. Alex Stone, a hardworking pediatrician and charming husband, Paul Petersen (Jeff Stone) and Shelley Fabares (Mary Stone), the couple’s teenage children. Together they make up the all-American mid-century family in their very first year on the small screen.
