full frontal glamor
20 March 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

One of the great docos ever made with excellent clips from films over 70 years of cinema.....and some absolutely impossible to see in the 21 st century, this is a must for all aficionados of silent and 30s female spectacle. Part of a series of film history docos like HAROLD LLOYD's WORLD OF COMEDY or MGMs BIG PARADE OF LAUGHTER this was about the women and their Hollywood gorgeousness. Very successful in 1965 upon release and never been seen much since.....the world changed a lot the next year, and more so the year after, this last stop before psychedelia and rock took over is a valentine to Paramount and Fox's female stars. Fascinating and quite revealing, literally.
