  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
From New York, it's Harry For The Holidays, starring Harry Connick, Jr. and his big band. Joined by special guests Marc Anthony, Kim Burrell, Whoopi Goldberg, and Nathan Lane; Harry entertains both onstage and off and combines comedy with his onstage Christmas crooning. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits pleasing image quality, with colors that are vibrant and well balanced. The picture is mostly sharp, though at times a bit soft or undefined. Scan lines are occasionally noticed on larger home theatre displays, and aliasing artifacts can be bothersome on finer details. Still, with the music being the draw to this DVD, this stage performance is one to enjoy for the holiday season. (Suzanne Hodges)
