Nostalgic...
7 January 2006 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

While I'll agree I would have liked more of Margaret O'Brien's opinions, I still really enjoyed this special- although it's half a decade old now, it's still great to see the adult faces of so many child actors who gave me such pleasure when I was a kid. I've attended "Conventions" where many of these performers hawk autographs(to meet the fans or to make money, I'm not sure), but for the many I've met who've had major personal problems growing up, they were all friendly and approachable in person(at the one I attended, Ms. O'Brien was among the stars!) With the "older" generation dying out, I would love to hear more from them, and their reflections on their cohorts who are no long with us, like Judy Garland, Jackie Coogan, Jackie Cooper, etc). Mickey Rooney should be hailed as a national legend- when will someone do a great interview with him? All in all, this was a very enjoyable nostalgic trip for me!
