3.0 out of 5 starsOK, but just OK

For some reason, I can’t think of a good one, this entire film is in black-and-white. Many many former stars are shown, but only for a moment or two, everything flashing by so fast it’s hard to keep track. Some of the transitions are jarring, like going from Marlon Brando’s heartbreaking “I coulda been a contender” scene from On the Waterfront to Fred Astaire’s featherlight singing to his top hat. A trip into nostalgia? Well, I lived through almost the entire period and few of my heartstrings were plucked. After all, if you want to see one of the old movies, it’s probably available online, so why watch ten seconds of it when you can see the whole thing? So, OK, but just OK.

This is a gem. Very entertaining and well done. Especially considering it was made in 1962. It was fun seeing rare clips of some of my favorite Hollywood stars and films from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Highly recommend this documentary for any film buff. Narrated by Henry Fonda.

Henry Fonda is one of my favorites so hearing his voice narrating this journey through cinema was a treat. Loved everything about this one..... the history (some I knew & some I didn't). It was fun seeing those stars I watched on the big screens & being reminded of those days. All in all a fun nostalgic 52 minutes! Escapism at it's best!
