A Great Documentary with great coverage and guests
5 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show! It was so great I just HAD to buy the video of it. I had one small regret though. "Gone With the Wind" should have been #1 instead of #4. The comments from each of the celebrity guests were very true and easy for the audience to comprehend their viewpoint. I loved Whoopi Goldberg's comments on "Doctor Zchivago" ("I remember the scene where Omar Sharif was showing Julie Christie the snow. And you were just like a little kid in that scene. There was Julie and there was Oamr and there was you.") and also on "The Wizard of Oz" ("It never occurred to me that there was anything odd in Oz because there were green people. So, I just assumed that the black folks were there too. You know, East Oz, or something"). Those are comments that I love to make when giving a commentary on my favorite films too. I am glad that this specific documentary was made. We need our future generations to see this special and then watch those movies specified in it because those later generations will never see the kind of talent that this show focused on.

A list of my 25 personal favorite films: Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, The Pride of the Yankees, Sunset Boulevard, High Noon, Picnic, On the Waterfront, Lady and the Tramp, Sergeant York, It's a Wonderful Life, West Side Story, A Farewell to Arms (1932), Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, My Fair Lady, Meet Me In St. Louis, The Godfather Part II, Amadeus, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Godfather, Good Will Hunting, Little Women (1933), National Velvet, All About Eve, Titanic (1997), Meet John Doe
