One of the all-time classics from the golden age of television, SGT. BILKO/THE PHIL SILVERS SHOW: THE COMPLETE SERIES has finally arrived on DVD. This multiple Emmy Award winner, which originally aired from 1955-1959, was one of early television's biggest smashes and still commands attention today as both a hilarious sitcom and a star-making showcase for legendary comedian Phil Silvers (IT'S a MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD) in his signature role as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko. Running the motor pool at Fort Baxter, the cagey Sgt. Bilko has always got an ace up his sleeve and a scheme in his head. From get-rich-quick scams to plots designed to keep himself free from the drudgery of work, he's always running an angle that will be sure to leave his commanding officer Colonel Hall tearing out his hair: and viewers in stitches! Featuring a memorable supporting cast, including Harvey Lembeck, Allan Melvin, Joe E. Ross, and Paul Ford, the 143 episodes in this set represent a true masterpiece of American comedy. With some of the snappiest jokes and kookiest characters of all time, SGT. BILKO/THE PHIL SILVERS SHOW: THE COMPLETE SERIES is an essential piece of any classic television fan's collection.
