DVD for RKO asap?
24 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This astonishing major TV series is one of the great movie studies ever made. A six part series, each at least an hour long, with a title for each decade or category with an array of interview talent as well as more clips than all the THAT'S ENTERTAINMENTs combined. It is exactly the sort of TV event I would love to see from all the studios...especially MONOGRAM-ALLIED ARTISTS and UNIVERSAL. Imagine what FOX could create! Anyway, this is the definitive version of what is possible and it is created and explained with a feast of clips and scenes and musical numbers more than one could hope for. I taped it from TV in the 80s and have not seen it re screened since. One screening only! More please! It urgently needs to find the DVD market and like the British produced series on DW Griffith and the SILENTS series it is a collectors dream. It certainly does not shy away from the Hughes years disasters and the downfall of the studio is as fascinating as the 1928-35 intro. This is absolutely essential viewing, entertaining in its fullest sense. The Republic Pictures Story and the AIP doco also available are good but have big bits missing..... this RKO series is the bullseye! Superb!
