Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Ed Sullivan amassed a group of American icons to honor our country on The Ed Sullivan Show. The patriotic performances from The Ed Sullivan Show by singers, poets, actors and drill teams document the passion for the Red, White and Blue.
This Ed Sullivan Show DVD contains classic versions of “God Bless America”, including one by Kate Smith (the best known version) as well as an extremely rare performance by Irving Berlin, the song’s composer.
