3.0 su 5 stelle The fan boy in me is screaming 5 Stars! 6! No 7!! 29 agosto 2013

Speaking as a lifelong fan of Groucho Marx and a Gilbert and Sullivan Savoyard of long-standing my prejudice is against anyone who dares find fault with this DVD. A more objective analysis is to admit to it's several weaknesses.

There are a few specific things a perspective buyer should know regarding the Groucho Marx Mikado. First this is a tightly edited limited length television version of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic. The producers of this 2012 disk Video Artists International VAI were working from black-and-white tapes of a 1960 color production. The transfer to disk may have been a technical achievement but the copy is somewhat washed out. Happily the audio is relatively clear. And while Groucho Marx's daughter will claim that her father: could sing just not Opera, on this disc his singing is terrible to the point that you have to laugh.
The original broadcast was a 52 minute Bell Telephone Hour broadcast. This means you are receiving what might be considered a Mikado Highlights disk. Gilbert and Sullivan fans are notorious for insisting on exact D'Oyly Carte Opera Company productions. This is nowhere near that standard and therefore it should be judged for what it is rather than what other productions attempt.

Having admitted to the weaknesses of this disc and clarified what it is; I enjoyed this program. Having admitted to the weakness of Groucho's performance his nonmusical presence is every bit as sprightly as any other Ko Ko in the playbooks. Given that Ko Ko is a comic role it is clear that Groucho played it exactly straight making no effort to inject Marx Brother's mayhem. On stage with Groucho is an amazing cast of singing talent Yum Yum is sung by Barbara Meister. She was in her late teens at the time she was selected for this role and would go on to perform in opera and Broadway. Robert Rounseville as the romantic lead, Nanki Poo was already something of a known voice but he too would go on to many roles in both Opera and Broadway. Stanley Holloway is a regal and entertaining Mikado and has a rather substantial filmography listing at IMDb.com stretching from 1921 to 1975. In short there was a lot of talent assembled for this particular production altogether they are a joy.

I am rarely one to mention the special features on a disc. The interviews with several of the performers including, Melinda Marx who was then a 13-year-old Peep Bo provide pleasant insights into the backstage stories of this production and the varied careers of these performers.
4.0 su 5 stelle Nice early live TV, only wish it wasn't quite so rushed. 19 giugno 2017

It's a brisk adaptation, and the extras are very nice, but it is a pity that the color version (clips of which have appeared in relatively recent documentaries) was not available as a source. Like most all performances of The Mikado, the role of Koko here seems to be performed by an "outsider" from the usual operetta troupe, but when that outsider is Groucho, feeling "hot as a dame out of Vassar" from his successful years hosting "You Bet Your Life," it's a nice bit of outside influence. Pity that The Mikado has never been fully produced as its own film - "Topsy Turvy" gives us a tantalizing hint of what it could be, in the hands of a good director.

5.0 su 5 stelle Perfect Casting 5 gennaio 2014
Di Teed Rockwell - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: DVD Acquisto verificato
Groucho has always played authority figures who do not deserve the respect everyone gives them, who are forced by circumstances to romance a rich elderly lady. What better role for him than a cheap tailor elevated to lord high executioner, who must sing "tit-willow" to win the heart of Katisha? The fact that everyone else is impeccably British and Groucho has his usual nasal New York accent makes him even more perfectly inappropriate. Yes, he sings out of tune sometimes, but always deliberately, for comic effect, just as in "Lydia, the Tatooed Lady". Even this black and white copy is no worse than the original Marx brothers movies, so essentially nothing is lost by it not being in color. The interactions between Groucho and Pooh bah are strongly reminiscent of Groucho and Chico, with Groucho cheerfully buying into Pooh Bah's insane assumption that he is actually multiple people. My only regrets are that 1) Margaret Dumont was not available for Katisha (she was 77 at the time and probably couldn't sing the parts effectively, but she was a trained opera singer). Not that there is anything wrong with this Katisha, who interacts with Groucho perfectly. 2) It makes one wish that they could have done the entire show, not just a one hour edited version for Television. I'm so glad this was preserved, I've heard about it for years, and thought it was lost.
5.0 su 5 stelle Groucho's Mikado is a fascinating curiosity 19 gennaio 2015
Di RichM - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Sure, this isn't the best Mikado you'll find on DVD, but as an historical artifact, it's an awful lot of fun. As many have noted, the show has been cut dramatically to fit the 50-minute television window. The result is several songs cut, and the songs that remain mostly reduced to one or two verses. For those familiar with The Mikado, the performance flies by at breakneck speed. Ironically, it's the comedy that suffers most; despite having two great funnymen in Groucho Marx and Stanley Holloway, there aren't a lot of laughs in this Mikado. Groucho is oddly reverent to the material; it would have been nice to see him set loose and frankly, be a little more Groucho. Richard Rounseville is an able Nanki-Poo, and Barbara Meister does fine as Yum Yum. Helen Traubel is a delight as Katisha; she dominates the screen whenever she is around. Her duet with Koko, "There is beauty in the bellow of the blast," is the highlight of the performance, with flashes of the fun-loving Groucho I wish we had seen more of earlier in the performance.

If you're a purist, steer clear; if you've never seen The Mikado, there are much better options. But for G&S completists, early television aficionados, and collectors of Marx Brothers memorabilia, there is a lot to enjoy here. Note that this version was reproduced from a kinescope, and the picture quality is not the best. However, it is more than adequate to enjoy the show. A much, much crisper clip of Martyn Green in selections from HMS Pinafore is included in the extras; very enjoyable, and a sad reminder of what this show probably looked like when originally broadcast.

4.0 su 5 stelle Memories can be faulty but not all is lost 13 luglio 2013
Di David Smith - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I remember seeing this show when it was broadcast. It was one of my first exposures to the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. I particularly remembered Groucho Marx's rendition of Tit-Willow and the ensemble number "the flowers that bloom in the spring." Thus I was very excited to find that VAI had brought out a DVD of the production. Unfortunately memory can play tricks and what I saw on the DVD was not what I remembered from 1960 -- a dissapointment. What I remembered as coming across as funny and witty fell flat on this viewing with much older eyes. If one wants to watch the Mikado one needs to go elsewhere. If one wants to watch the classic comedic Groucho Marx one needs to go elsewhere also. However if one is interested in one of the landmark television productions, a bold attempt by those who held the Mikado with affection then give this disk a try. The images are a very soft black and white, but clear. Whatever artifact that might have been has been expunged. The sound is clear. The additional material including the commercials from the program, excerpts from another Martyn Green production (Pinafore) and audio recollections by Dick Cavett, Melinder Marx Leung, and Barbara Meister are almost as valuable as the production itself. I found the commercials in particular a "history lesson" from a period when the telephone company sold telephones and made money on timed long distance calls with cheaper rates at nights on Sundays.
