I fell asleep twice. The greatest year of movies? It was more like attending a college lecture. No passion. No excitement. The director brought no sense of style or storytelling to a vast canvas known as 1939.
No info here that you couldn't get on Google or Wikipedia, in fact that might be more informative.
Barely a whisper about Hattie McDaniel's historic Oscar win. Apparently Ingrid Bergman is no big deal either. WIZARD OF OZ could have been the centerpiece but again, it just breezes by.
Classic year, boring documentary. Maybe someday someone will pay the proper respect to the greatest year in cinema...1939.
