The UCLA Film & Television Archive is very proud to announce its DVD release of “The Ultimate Goldbergs!”
Often referred to as a “lost” television series, “The Goldbergs” spanned four decades on radio and television and is considered the first television sitcom. The program made writer-producer Gertrude Berg—who also starred as urban Jewish matron Molly Goldberg—the most famous woman in America, and the first woman to win an Emmy Award for acting.
This DVD set contains all 71 episodes of “The Goldbergs” still known to exist. Also included in this collection is an excerpt from Aviva Kempner’s documentary “Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg”, the pilot for Gertrude Berg’s later television show, “Mrs. G Goes to College”, and twelve episodes of “The Goldbergs” radio show which was broadcast for 17 years prior to the television show.
