Well worth watching
9 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I purchased the movie and the 75th Anniversary 3D edition as well. Enjoyed the black and white version and the color version even more. A timeless classic best seen on the big screen. I do prefer the color version though. This documentary has information that was not in the special features.

Consider it a must see if you are a fan of the movie, movie history, the actors involved, or the movie industry.

Read the review from Neil Doyle if you want more detailed information. Great review there. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100950/reviews?ref_=tt_urv
