U.S. label Hen’s Tooth Video will be releasing The Groove Tube (1974) on Blu-ray. Release date: May 25, 2021.
The Groove Tube spoofs television and commercials in an outrageous series of skits. Lampooning everything from cooking shows to public service announcements, this fast-paced predecessor to Saturday Night Live deftly assaults the medium of television itself. Both Chevy Chase and Richard Belzer made their screen debuts in this wild comedy hit.
Restoration by Gamma Ray Digital from a 4K scan of 35mm archival film materials in the collections of the Library of Congress.
