This is included as a special feature with the 20th Century Fox film "Lillian Russell". This is GREAT because the feature film is pretty much a total lie--mixing TONS of fiction with a few actual details of Miss Russell's life. This featurette is an absolute must--to let the viewer know about the real lady and to let them know that they wasted all their time watching the feature!! After watching this well made documentary, I was left wondering WHY 20th Century-Fox made such a bad bio-pic?! First off, it bore no resemblance to her life in many instances. Second, and more importantly, the film was dull--whereas the real Lillian Russell was an amazing and complex woman! See this excellent short documentary and skip the feature--that's my advice!
