Hard to find, but worth it
17 May 2004 | by (Bedford, PA) – See all my reviews

I first encountered this tape, along with its companion, "When The Applause Died," in a video store in North Dakota and rented it often because the archival footage and plain-speaking accounts of the deaths of some of Hollywood's greats were just irresistible to me for their historic value.

I moved away from the Peace Garden State and for years couldn't find this title. Thank goodness for Ebay, that's all I can say. I eventually won both (and if there's a third part to this series, I'd love to find that, too!), and I hope that eventually this will come onto DVD, perhaps updated.

I like this documentary and I think you will too.
