worthwhile, entertaining and informative non-fiction program
6 April 1999 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I wish there were more programs like this on television, entertaining and informative, looking at the history of the movies in a different and worthwhile way. It is rare that a TV program makes people think and talk about movies.
