This historic and nostalgic DVD brings this classic 1970s network television special back to life. As Seen on TV and showcasing Sonny Bono & Cher in the happiest of times, the Pop music couple of their generation (the Brangelina of the 1970s) sing, dance, and joke their way through an evening of hits, humor, hi-jinks and hopes. Sonny Bono's songwriting talents, including their #1 hit I Got You, Babe, let Cher reveal the voice, charisma and beauty that would take her from stardom to superstardom in the ensuing decade.

The Sonny & Cher Nitty Gritty Hour recaptures the sound, spirit, and style of the 70s, that vibrant time of non-stop hits, disco, sideburns and bell-bottoms. Deprived of many memories after Sonny Bono's untimely passing, this special DVD is not only a rare and retro look at the couple and the playful, wisecracking persona that captivated audiences through the mid 1970s, but the only available example of their incomparable television show. Complete with the hair-styles, bell-bottoms and sideburns, this classic-to-be nostalgically brings you back to that bygone era.

Review:

This 1971 blast-from-the-past will have you wondering a few things. Like, how is it that Sonny - who sounded like Derek Zoolander and looked, dressed, and acted like the lounge singer Bill Murray spoofed on Saturday Night Live - wound up a U.S. Congressman?... people find this variety show so entertaining that it rose to Number 7 its third season, beating out such staples as The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, The Wonderful World of Disney, Happy Days, Gunsmoke, and Monday Night Football... This is Cher before the nose job and dental work, a real pop-culture artifact. --James Plath, DVD Town

Nitty Gritty Hour is a wondrous slice of 1970s kitch taken from their hit TV show... Great nostalgia. --John Koenig, Discoveries Magazine

Guaranteed to make an entire generation wax nostalgic... so successful in the ratings that it led to S&C's own highly-rated weekly variety show. --Video Business Magazine
