Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'The Best of Betty White'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“The Best of Betty White”
Having just turned 90, actress Betty White is as feisty and active as ever, recently landing an Emmy Award for her role in the sitcom “Hot in Cleveland” and contributing a distinctive vocal performance in the top-rated movie “Dr. Suess’ The Lorax.” She’s the living, breathing, wisecracking epitome of show-biz longevity and in recent years, with her naughty old lady act winning a growing following, White has also found numerous ways to recycle her career highs into a lucrative DVD business.
With much of her most popular TV work readily available on various DVD collections, she’s also taken to trotting out many of her roles in largely forgotten series for the video market. One of these is the deceptively titled “The Best of Betty White,” due out on DVD Tuesday.
This so-called “best” collection is in no way related to her memorable, iconic work as lascivious Sue Ann Nivens in “Mary Tyler Moore” (1973-77) or her turn as ditzy widow Rose Nylund in “The Golden Girls” (1985-92).
