Gather is giving away 3 copies of the docurama Yoo-Hoo Mrs. Goldberg.
Before Oprah, and before Lucy, there was the beloved Gertrude Berg, the entertainment genius who wrote, starred in and produced the first successful American sitcom and charmed a beleaguered nation.
Animated through a dazzling collage of vintage clips and interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and intimate conversations with friends, colleagues and family members, the box-office smash-hit YOO-HOO, MRS. GOLDBERG traces Bergâ€™s rise to stardom from her childhood in New York to her early radio days in â€œThe Rise of the Goldbergsâ€ (1929-46) to her enormously influential sitcom, â€œThe Goldbergsâ€ (1949-56), which brought Berg the first Best Actress EmmyÂ® in history. Bergâ€™s passion and incredible productivity paved the way for a wide variety of causesâ€”women in entertainment, Jewish-American identity and actorsâ€™ rights, to name a fewâ€”but she is most celebrated for singlehandedly proving that the American family transcends social, religious and economic divisions.
Directed by Aviva Kempner, winner of the Peabody Award for The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg, Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg offers an astounding tribute to one of the most successful and innovative women in American broadcast history.Â The astounding visual style of the film uses a dazzling collage of vintage clips, behind-the-scenes footage and intimate never before seen conversations with friends, colleagues and family.
Audio commentary with Aviva Kempner, episodes of â€œThe Goldbergsâ€ (including a surprising 1954 episode featuring Molly and Jake in the same bed together!), Gertrude Bergâ€™s guest appearances with Edward R. Murrow and on Ed Sullivan, additional scenes and interviews, a Gertrude Berg recipe, an essay from the director and much, much more.
