Life With Elizabeth - Starring Betty White, Del Moore
This delightful comedy features Betty White and Del Moore as Elizabeth and Alvin, newlyweds who are just starting their lives together. Elizabeth is a housewife who sometimes has a problem keeping out of trouble all to the delight and exasperation of her husband, Alvin. This early situation style comedy showcased White and gave its audience a glimpse of the talent she would reveal on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Golden Girls".

1. Fun with Photography/Honeymoon is Over/Temporary Disabilities
2. Nursery Rhymes/Alvin's First Business Trip/Weekend at the Cabin
3. Dyeing Easter Eggs/Modeling Clay/Yard Work with Babs
4. Mannerisms/Stupid Drapes/Bulldog Smith
5. Sunday Paper/Telephone Troubles/Flat Tire
6. Alvin's Home Work/Swimming Pool/The Swindle

The 4 DVD set is 15 hours and 15 minutes long.

I do not recommend purchasing the "Best of Lucy and Friends," because it contains the same public domain episodes released by many different companies many times before. The fourth disc doesn't even contain any Lucy episodes on it!
