A splendid documentary!
10 April 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This (presumably) Australian made documentary of the life and accomplishments of Robert Helpmann deserves to be available via VHS or DVD for home consumption and enjoyment. A man who successfully bridged the gap from ballet to theatre and back again, Helpmann is certainly a part of history of those two art forms and it would be appreciated if someone would issue this in one of the video formats. His droll and telling anecdotes of his career together with comments from fellow actors and dancers is beautifully presented here. I saw it on a PBS telecast but it's not even available through their outlets. Help!!
