Narration by Alexander Scourbyetter makes it better than the TV series
21 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie DOES feature Alexander Scourby, not Leonard Graves as in the TV series. I like the movie better, as there's less need for fill and the movie lacks some of the charming corniness of the TV series. Many scenes from the TV series are taken from Hollywood "reenactment" movies, which I only noticed as I got older. The movie is fast-paced with excellent narration and legendary music.

I searched for this listing for years, but only found the TV series named and no credit for Alexander Scourby on the narration.

The movie makes a wonderful overview of World War II, especially for many young folk today who only know about it from "Call of Duty." Concentration camp scenes bring out the real horror without being overly graphic.
