FIVE PARTIAL TV BROADCAST!
the first time ever, the actual Partial TV Broadcast of
a vintage World Series game with original TV commercials
can now be see again on DVD, thanks to
the film restoration expertise of Rare Sportsfilms! This
DVD is an absolute MUST for all Dodger fans, as 1955 will
always be remembered as the year Brooklyn finally won its
only World Championship (after 7 previous tries)!
At gametime, the 1955 World
Series is tied at 2 games apiece as Dodger rookie Roger
Craig makes his first W.S. start against Bob Grim of the
Yankees at old Ebbets Field, Brooklyn! “Be there”
in front of your old B & W TV set again 50 year later,
as the National Anthem is played and this crucial and historic
game begins! You’ll see the first three full innings
of action as famed Yankee broadcaster Mel Allen does the
play by play! Later, you’ll hear Dodger voice Vin
Scully call parts of innings 5, 6 and 7! There’s plenty
of action! You’ll see double plays, a fabulous catch
by Irv Noren, four home runs are hit and Dodger slugger
Duke Snider ties his own World Series record of 4 HR’s
in one series – with at least two games still to play!
This 1½ hour DVD brings back all the memories of
those early televised World Series games and New York baseball
as it was played over half a century ago!
Live TV broadcasts from before
1965 are very rare. Only a very few complete baseball game
TV broadcasts from pre-1965 are known to exist and all are
World Series games. The two oldest are stored in the Museum
of Broadcasting in NYC. The others are in our private collection!
Because each complete game required at least five reels
of kinescope film, the reels were easily lost and scattered,
so when a TV broadcast did show up, it was always one or
two reels (an inning or two) at best. But what a treat nowadays
to be able to see most of this game from the 1955 World
