the real deal
17 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent documentary, I learned a heck of a lot. It is well worth seeing for many reasons... the historic images, the interviews, the editing. Great use of interviews and music - very watchable. A great film for history buffs, or anyone with casual interest.

The film used personal stories for most of the narrative, and it gave the film some life. Not a dry film at all. Really gave me a feel for fair, and more importantly, it gave me a feel for what life in general was like in that era.

I talked about the film with some friends that saw it, and they were impressed with how the social issues of the day were treated in the film. Some might think that the producers were overly sensate, or "politically correct" to the issues of race and womens rights, but I don't think so. It seemed to me to be an even handed treatment.
