Car 54 Where Are You?
The Complete First Season

April 12, 2011

Image

Product Description
Car 54 Where Are You, one of the best loved and funniest TV shows of all time, finally comes to DVD for the first time. All 30 episodes of the Nat Hiken first season (1961-62) are included in a set of 4 DVDs, each newly remastered from the only known set of 35 mm fine grain prints.

The show stars Joe E. Ross as Gunther Toody and Fred Gwynne as Francis Muldoon, a lovably inept squad car team that patrols the Bronx's 53rd precinct. Muldoon plays the long-suffering voice of reason who invariably reins in his short, stocky partner¹s dimwitted schemes and patiently listens to his hilariously inane prattle. The perfectly cast ensemble of supporting actors includes Beatrice Pons as Toody¹s domineering shrew of a wife, Al Lewis as the rubber-faced, irascible Officer Leo Schnauser, Charlotte Rae as Schnauser¹s moody, hot-tempered wife and Paul Reed as the perpetually exasperated captain Block. Each episode was filled out with talent drawn from New York's pool of seasoned film and TV veterans, borscht belt comedians and Broadway stage actors, and the first season features memorable guest star appearances by show biz pros Molly Picon, Wally Cox, Jan Murray, Maureen Stapleton, Jake La Motta and many more.

The show was the brainchild of Nat Hiken, already famous for his highly acclaimed Sgt. Bilko show, and many critics feel Car 54, with its quirky story lines, offbeat characters and hilarious dialogue even surpassed Bilko as a comic masterpiece. Drawing on his 25 years of writing experience for top comedy shows on radio and television (Fred Allen, Milton Berle, Martha Raye), Hiken created a show rich with New York humor and offbeat characters in scripts that were polished jewels of comedy. Soon television would opt for more formulaic programming, and Car 54 Where Are You was the last gasp of an early golden era of New York television.

Specifically shot as a bonus extra for this release is a brand-new free-wheeling round table conversation between Bronx-raised comedian Robert Klein and two of the regular cast members -- Charlotte Rae, who played Sylvia Schnauser, and Hank Garrett, who played Officer Ed Nicholson, one of the cops of the 53rd precinct. Rae and Garrett share stories, anecdotes and memories with Klein (a fan of Hiken¹s work) that shed light on what went on behind the scenes.
