I saw this three-part series on TV when it first aired, with Henry Fonda, Shirley MacLaine, and Liza Minnelli as hosts. Occasionally PBS would re-run it, but it hasn't appeared in years. It's an insightful, poignant, affectionate look at America's love affair with the movies. From Frank Capra to Woody Allen, it spans the decades when some of our greatest actors, directors, and writers were turning out films that would become classics. A shame that you don't see it on cable somewhere -- perhaps Turner Classic Movies or American Movie Classics. More's the pity that it's not available on DVD. If you love movies, cast a vote to bring this documentary back to life.
