Brilliant informative series.
18 July 2012 | by allanmjdSee all my reviews

Yes, I agree this was quality television. Every week I would wait to watch it and learn more about old Hollywood. And now that old Hollywood is even farther away than ever I would really love to watch the whole series again. I wish it would come out on DVD. I too would snag it up. Perhaps Turner Classic Movies would consider re-running them. They were a divine look at our best loved stars. And the opening song is so brilliantly matched with visuals. I loved to learn about the classics via this series and categories of film types were explored and examined. Really a wonderful, wonderful series. One week you are reviewing or learning about Marilyn Monroe and the next its leading men and the next its leading women and the next its musicals. I used to watch it in awe as a kid in Chicago suburbs.
