A tad dull
26 February 2005 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

Compared to some of Turner Classic Movies' other original documentaries--I'm looking at you, So Funny It Hurt--this brief film about producer Irving Thalberg is a bit of a letdown. That may be because Thalberg died so young: there's not much footage of him available, and there are few left alive who knew or worked with him. The result is a rather boring recitation of the facts which doesn't cast much new light on the meteoric rise and tragic--though completely predictable--death of the man most people only think of on Oscar night. Stanley Tucci's bland narration doesn't help matters much, and this is ultimately a disappointing and rather dull documentary.
