I wish there were more movies like this. I always find it interesting when they depict actual events. It is a movie you can watch more than once and you get something out of it each time. It is in black & white which is effective in the placement of the movie in the period. It is a reminder of a day gone by if you are older and educational if you are younger. If you are a lover of jazz you will also enjoy some of the music. I attended the screening at the Lied Center and they had a Q & A with a gentleman who attended KU at that time. He said the film is very accurate. This film needs wider distribution. If it happens to show in your area please take the time to see it. As would be expected all Jayhawk fans throughout the country should try to see this production.
