Terrific score accompanies documentary
10 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I loved the film and felt that the words of Norman Corwin are as meaningful today as they were in the forties and fifties. What an ideal film to make part of a modern history curriculum in both high school and college. It is also a great review of journalism when it was at a higher level-- journalist as essayist. It is a reminder of the 4th estate as a significant player in current events.

The score accompanying this documentary is very varied and poignant--I found it a great setting for Corwin's persona--I hope it will get some more press. I look forward to the film being more widely available and the soundtrack as a promoted CD for purchase.
