The Series That Launched My Lifelong Love Of Films, 28 January 2006
Author: felixoscar from New York, USA

So heartening to see others had the grand fortune of tuning into this seminal series. About a decade ago, I had the really good fortune to sit at a business dinner with series producer, the now legendary David L. Wolper. I thanked him for his creating this uncanny series, long before the nostalgic era (which we are still in) and ten years before the unexpected popularity of That's Entertainment.

He was really happy to hear this, a man who had produced so many landmark series, tickled that this early effort had stayed with a fan for so many year.

Now, as another contributer mentioned, where is TCM, or IFC to bring back this grand series? How about a DVD? So many memories still --- the scene from "A Star is Born", the grand 1937 version (although the film was in color, how ironic that this TV series, a full 25 years younger, had to resort to Black & White!). Scenes from "current" films, now more than forty years old.

Let's find out who owns the rights, call the Turner folks in Atlanta, and hear that gorgeous theme music (available on iTunes by the way).
