Nostalgia Merchant presents, The Milton Berle Collection. The Texaco Star Theater was one of the most popular shows in the history of television. In the first year, Milton Berle was not the permanent emcee, but once he replaced the rotation, the show soared to ratings dominance (number one in 1950-1951, NBC dominated Tuesday night, and Berle became the first great star of television. The basic format was modeled after a vaudeville variety show, spot-lighting Berle’sjokes, sight gags, and costumes. This collection includes 8 hour-long vintage shows from the early 1950s. We've included a couple of Berle-Buick shows. All of these shows contain the original commercials. Hours of great viewing here. Guest stars include: Elvis Presley, Harry James, Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra, Gale Storm, Vic Damone, and many more. Get it today from The Nostalgia Merchant.

Reed Hadley stars as Captain Braddock of Racket Squad Each episode of this classic cop show was inspired from actual police files on cases involving con men. RACKET SQUAD was nominated for two Emmys. The show aired from 1950 to 1953. The series was filmed at Hal Roach Studios in Culver City, California and was sponsored by Cigarette manufacturer Philip Morris, which is why there was a pack of the sponsor's brand on Braddock's desk at the beginning and end of the episode, as well as occasional scenes of him or other characters "lighting up" a good old American cigarette. The Racket Squad Collection is now available from the Nostalgia Merchant. This collection includes 32 episodes on 8 DVDs in chronological order.

This series was about a somewhat grumpy and uptight banker, Cosmo Topper, and the ghosts which only he could see or hear, George and Marion Kerby. The Kerbys would often try to get Cosmo to loosen up and enjoy life, but more often they would complicate it. Anne Jeffreys and Robert Sterling were married in real life. Nostalgia Merchant has just released a great collection of 64 episodes on 16 DVDs. Check out the Topper Collection.
