Across the 9 discs of ERNIE KOVACS: THE CENTENNIAL EDITION , home audiences will find a cornucopia of Kovacs' greatest and most memorable "hits", showcasing an utterly unique sensibility that has influenced such comedy institutions as Monty Python and "Saturday Night Live" including episodes from his local and national morning shows, episodes from his NBC prime-time show, his five ABC-TV specials, the rare color version of his legendary silent show, "Eugene", 3 complete episodes of his offbeat game show "Take a Good Look", "A Pony for Chris", Kovacs' rarely-seen pilot for "Medicine Man" co-starring Buster Keaton, the only existing filmed solo interview with Kovacs himself, his award-winning commercials for Dutch Masters Cigars, a collection of short films, tributes rarities and much more!
ERNIE KOVACS: THE CENTENNIAL EDITION digs deep into a goldmine of comedy and Kovacs' fans, both longtime and new, will marvel at the sheer invention, wit and goofy charm of these milestone programs from the Golden Age of TV. A creative force of nature, this specially-curated collection of his riches -- historic, unique and endlessly entertaining -- will help to seal his legacy forever.
