CHARLES GOREN DVD SET
Item #: 7701
Availability: In Stock
This set of four DVDs includes the 26-episode season 2 of the
program along with bonus footage such as the first televised "vugraph"
and a slide show of ACBL memorabilia.
You will see legendary players in action - B. J. Becker, Easley
Blackwood, Edith Kemp, Dorothy Hayden (Truscott) and Sam Stayman
to name a few, along with celebrity guests such as Chico Marx
and Les Brown. The "table talk" of the players is delightful,
and Goren's overly dramatized commentary is a history lesson in
bidding - we find even then frisky Arthur Glatt opening 1 NT with
a mere 15 points! Goren cautions his viewers that this bid may
be tried only in the hands of an expert!
Goren remains a household name more than a decade after his
death in 1991. His 40 published works and syndicated newspaper
column were read by millions, and his stature was recognized when
Time Magazine proclaimed him "Mr. Bridge" in a 1957
Produced by the American Contract Bridge League, "Championship
Bridge" is just one of the projects under way in preparation
for the ACBL's 75th Anniversary in 2012.
This DVD is in black and white and looks like it would have
looked like on the television in those years.
***$35.00 from the sale of each set will be returned to the
ACBL for its history initiatives.***
**This item does not qualify for any further discounts.**
