Biography is exactly the right word to describe this A&E series, which was hosted by various artists over its run. Every episode I have seen was well researched and interesting, but on a series that takes on a new subject every week, one's interest will depend on how much one cares to learn about a particular person, who can range from actors, writers, directors, or even military & political figures, etc.

Many episodes are included as extras on various DVDs from Fox Films, so one can see portraits of Henry Fonda, Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison, Linda Darnell, Vincent Price, among others. If the show can make people you didn't think you'd care about worthy of viewing, you know it's doing something right!
