Storyline

This documentary provides a behind the scenes look at the making of movies in 1925 at the M-G-M Studios in Culver City, California. The studio itself is a small city, encompassing forty-five buildings, including fourteen sound stages (number fourteen which is currently under construction), connected by three miles of paved roads over the forty-three acre property. The stories, the soul of any movie, are vetted through a story department headed by Mrs. M.F. Lee. The approved stories are passed to the scenario writers, supported by the research department, who ensure factual accuracy. Taking the script, the director makes up the storyboards, and casts the lead roles. The director has a plethora of big name stars available at his disposal.

Fascinating Movie History--Must See
9 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best behind the scenes documentaries a movie history buff is going to see of early motion picture production. It is MGM 1925. It covers every department at MGM at that time. You are not viewing a documentary made today but one made in 1925. Excellent quality. I discovered it was aired on TCM in December 2007. I had "The Smart Set" on my DVR (a silent MGM picture from 1928 with William Haines). I recently watched it and discovered this gem at the end--in between films. It is amazing "living" history from 84 years ago. Every film history class should view this. I liked seeing the people in the film who all seem very much alive, enjoying life and their profession.
