Storyline

This film will assist those whose knowledge of history and geography are lacking.
25 November 2002 | by Peter22060See all my reviews

With all the talk of no history education in the schools in the United States, this film can be used to whet the appetite. When some of us older viewers will remember that great novels were turned into Classic Comics to teach the lazy about great written works, the movie studios were churning out historic films, frequently firming some biographies with fictional text. This film is excellent. For those parents who want to give a "sense of history to their children" they should rent or look for the following movies: YOUNG TOM EDISON, EDISON, THE MAN; ELEANOR, FIRST LADY OF THE WORLD; WILSON; ABE LINCOLN IN ILLINOIS; JUAREZ; SUEZ; DISRAELI; PANCHO VILLA; STANLEY AND LIVINGSTON; DR. EHRLICH'S MAGIC BULLET; HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD; CARDINAL RICHELIEU; THE STORY OF LOUIS PASTEUR and TRUMAN as well as documentary films like THE GUNS OF AUGUST. TUDOR ROSE is a must see, the viewer should program IMDb to advise when these films are on television.
