disappointing look at an important story
26 December 2009 | by (east coast) – See all my reviews

The biggest issue I have with the film besides- his constant focus on himself instead of the story- is that for someone who claims to know MGM and Hollywood so well, he calls Peggy Montgomery, one of the most, if not THE most famous child film star ever, a Hollywood extra. She was Baby Peggy for god's sake.

Since he got that huge, very obvious item wrong, it may indicate other research that is not very good either. Could that be why he spends too much time on himself. All of the time on him is wasted time and self aggrandizing. Time to watch "Broadcast News" for tips on why it doesn't work to focus on himself.

Pat Douglas's story is important, particularly in light of other famous (Fatty Arbuckle for one), and some more recent, Hollywood rape cases.

I, at least, applaud him for telling Pat's even in this not very well handled documentary.
