full frontal glamor
ptb-8 from Australia
20 March 2004
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.
