5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Julie Newmar studied with Marcel Marceau. . . . 15 de abril de 2012

Some years ago, before MPI released this DVD, I hunted out some of this show's episodes and bought them on DVR from a private dealer. But with this release, I can see the joy and fantasy of *My Living Doll* in nice, sharp clarity of sound and video. Unabashedly I love this show, largely for Julie Newmar's presence.

I was surprised (but not surprised) to learn she studied with Marcel Marceau--and so much of that nonverbal prowess shows here! Ms. Newmar might be more appreciated for her work as Catwoman on the BATMAN series, but for me, she's never been better than she is on this show. Her innocence, wide-eyed wonder and the seeming lack of awareness of how dang sexy she is in the role--these are traits that make the show a joy. Yes, she's playing a robot, but no, she's not static. Take the limber kinesthesia she enacts with easy grace in "The Pool Shark" episode; focus on her in the background when Bob Cummings is in the forefront. Or try not to utter a little gasp when Ms. Newmar glides through Chopin (Yes, she's really playing it herself) in "The Beauty Contest."

Twenty-nine when she starred on the show, Ms. Newmar OWNED this show. While I'm a fan of Bob Cummings and always enjoyed "Love That Bob," and still do on DVD, Ms. Newmar is the sun around which this show revolves. I can only hope and pray the other fifteen shows have somehow survived, as Ms. Newmar has said she finally felt at peace in "Rhoda's" skin only after the thirteenth show. Boy, you wouldn't know it by her performances here. Great stuff.

And by the way: the reviewer who complained that his discs were mislabeled since they contained "My Favorite Martian" and "The Honeymooners" instead of the series--perhaps those discs never moved beyond the first ten minutes of play. Both shows are featured in this disc set as commercials for other DVDs by MPI. The *Living Doll* episodes start right after the extended clips for those contemporary programs. I, for one, felt the ads offered more bang for my buck. . . but at less than $20.00 for the whole shebang, I'd say I more than got my money's worth.

At the risk of misquoting Charles Dickens, "Please, sir. More shows, please!"

I was young enough when this series aired that I cannot remember how many of them I originally watched. As a child, I loved the idea of "Rhoda the Robot". Now, seeing these episodes as an adult, I was struck by how sexist the series is. Just on the cusp of the "swingin' sixties" (1964-65), the men are all leering over Rhoda and say the most outrageous things. The humor is NOT up to the level of the classic "My Favorite Martian" from the same producer (Jack Chertok). HOWEVER! Julie Newmar does some excellent acting as The Doll (a.k.a Rhoda), and the episodes have a fair amount of fun in them. Three stars for the episodes themselves.

I have added a star for the very existence of this set. With the exception of the "bonus" episode, reproduced from inferior materials (but one of the funnier episodes), the surviving episodes look amazingly good for a one-season black-and-white program that has had little or no rerun time since. The modern-day interview and the Lucille Ball audio interviews are welcome bonus features. Kudos to the persistence of the people who assembled the package.

I hope the remaining episodes of the series (particularly the few without Bob Cummings, who left the show before the season ended) can be found and released in another set. Even if they cannot, it's great to finally see this show about which I remembered for years.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Wonderful show, so glad to see this again! 25 de febrero de 2014

I actually remember watching this show in it's original run on primetime TV in 1964. It was cancelled after only one season because ratings weren't as good as hoped, because some network idiot scheduled the show in a time slot against popular shows like Bonanza. However, the show itself is simply wonderful, primarily thanks to Julie Newmar as Rhoda, and would have done much better in another time slot, where an audience might have found it, as happened the very next year with "I Dream Of Jeannie", which had a similar premise (beautiful girl with unusual properties living with a military man).

Rhoda is a robot developed by NASA for the space program, in hopes that she can be sent on hazardous missions instead of risking human lives. She is very sophisticated, but a bit naive about social interactions, and has a tendency to take verbal commands very literally. When her builder is reassigned to Pakistan, the task of educating her in the ways of humans falls into the lap of Bob Cummings, who is busy with his own social life.

Rhoda reads a full page of text in less than five seconds, remembers every character on the page, learns to play the piano by watching a concert on television, and looks incredible in her 1964 one piece swimsuit. The primary humor in the show involves how her literal interpretation of instruction often places Bob in awkward circumstances socially.

"My Living Doll" was never syndicated, and all episodes were believed lost until these 11 were discovered in 2012. It's truly great to see these again, and I hope that the remaining episodes will turn up as well.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Julie Newmar is beautiful and hilarious 16 de abril de 2014

Bob Cummings is Bob Cummings; he is very charming and does a good job in playing the straight guy to Newmar's robot, but you spend most of your time just staring at Newmar. This show is historically interesting in a couple of ways - the sixties obsession with technology; as a forerunner to shows like The Six Million Dollar Man; and in exhibitng the vast difference in moral code. Bob had to get his sister to move in so he would not be (ostensibly) shacked up alone with a nubile young woman - because, of course, the plot is basically that nobody is supposed to know that she's a robot. Newmar trained as a dancer and it's apparent. She does a lot of sight gags and physical, almost slapstick, humor. Until someone pushes her "off" button ....

i have always been a fan of julie newmar since her catwoman days. my husband actually remembered this show when it was on in prime time, and he loved it then. we bought it and we are really enjoying "my living doll." besides classic commercials, a lucille ball interview with julie, a current interview with julie, a bonus episode of "doll" and a bob cummings show, a huge photo gallery, this dvd set actually includes a soundtrack from the episodes. how cool is that? i've purchased many sets of classic shows and have never seen this added before. my favorite episode on this series is "the beauty contest" where rhoda is off to become "miss shindig of the world." i highly recommend this dvd.
