The best film at Tribeca Film Festival, 23 January 2007
Author: iheartfashion25 from United States

This doc. is a must see. It really and truly is a gem of a film. I saw this also at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was by far my favorite film! Not only do you wish that you were able to party at the original Toots and meet Toots himself, but I found myself so disappointed that I was born in 1978 and didn't get to experience NYC during that time.

The film does do a great job really taking you back to the NY in the 50's. You almost feel like you knew Toots himself and had a drink at his bar.

Also the interviews with legends like Frank Gifford and Whitey Ford are priceless. Some of the stories they tell are priceless too.

I hope this movie is released b/c I would love to see it again!
