It’s a Hot Holiday. Christmas had special meaning for Tom Jones, 28-year-old Welsh superstar and host of his own weekly variety show This Is Tom Jones, and the 1969 and 1970 holiday programs compiled on this DVD reflect his love for this festive season. As usual, Tom throws a terrific party that’s brassy, classy and warmly nostalgic. It’s a great time for all. Jazz diva Ella Fitzgerald cooks with the Count Basie chestnut Good Morning Blues before she and Tom share the stage. Viewers will experience a lovely Chelsea Morning courtesy of Judy Collins, and ballet at its finest when the legendary Rudolf Nureyev and Merle Park perform the Pas de Deux from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite. In his poignant reading of A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas, Tom goes home for the holidays as the Treorchy Male Choir provides a backdrop of seasonal favorites.
And after grabbing the microphone for his mini concert, Tom quickly moves from warm and fuzzy to hot and sexy.
