Very enjoyable for all of the Academy Award moments of old. I, especially love watching all of those moments and only wish that the actual telecasts of the Academy Awards were available for purchase. Too bad that they did not do a collection of videos from the televised Oscar moments from 1951-1971--that would have been a nice companion piece to this one. If you get a chance to see this one, then by all means do--if you like seeing all the real stars from back then!!
