Starting in 1918
29 June 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This compilation of old film clips, narrated by various sportscasters, commentators and Frederick Lewis Allen, who wrote the definitive memoir of the 1920s -- not a history, since it came out in 1931 -- covers the 1920s, but begins with the Armistice. Well, no one one rang a bell and told me to grow my hair long on January 1, 1960.

Too simplistic for my taste, this does have interesting clips throughout, running from Carrie Nation to General Pershing, the great and noteworthy, and ordinary people. It's most interesting for the variety of those clips. If you wish to take a look at it, it's on the DVD set of the silent version of CHICAGO -- which is definitely worth your time.
