Giveaway: The Merv Griffin Show 1962-1986 - 12-Disc DVD Set - Enter by December 1, 2014

By , Contributor
We’ve partnered with MPI Home Video and Reelin’ In the Years Productions to offer a terrific giveaway in which two lucky winners will receive the new 12-disc DVD set The Merv Griffin Show 1962-1986! Currently available for purchase, this set contains some 42 hours of entertainment and stands as “a tribute to a magnificently entertaining television show” and is “a treasure-trove of a quarter-century of American thought, style and attitudes.”

Enter our giveaway by December 1, 2014 using the PunchTab form below. Giveaway is open to U.S. residents aged 18 and over.

From the official press notes: “In the era of Jack Paar, Steve Allen and Johnny Carson, The Merv Griffin Show stood apart for its one-of-a-kind mix of light entertainment and probing analysis of issues of the times. A typical show might have Merv cracking up over the wacky love life of Zsa Zsa Gabor and then analyzing the Vietnam War with philosopher Bertrand Russell.”

Throughout this DVD set are appearances by notable entertainers and political figures, including: Lucille Ball, the Everly Brothers, Willie Mays and Aretha Franklin, Salvador Dali, Dennis Hopper and Maya Angelou, Rosa Parks, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. Among the Hollywood legends interviewed by Griffin in this collection are John Wayne, Bette Davis, Ingrid Bergman, Warren Beatty, Jayne Mansfield, and many more. Comedy greats include: Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher and Jay Leno, as well as George Carlin, Richard Pryor and Jerry Lewis together (!), Joan Rivers, Steve Martin, Moms Mabley, Bill Cosby, Henny Youngman, Jack Benny, Redd Foxx, Carol Burnett, Andy Kaufman and Woody Allen.
