The subject of this "documentary" (which seems more like a MOCKumentary) is my favorite real-life Halloween story of all-time. And I always thought that "American Experience" was a reputable series on PBS, but this episode has change that perception. I may never see this series the same way again. I don't think I saw any disclaimers or anything but it appears to me that they present fake interviews with horribly unskilled actors reciting words written by various real people from the late 1930's from various sources...as real as if making their own brilliant statement on Welles' original take on the media. Nice try ...for an amateur documentary ...crushing failure for an iconic series like American Experience.
It also drags on and on and on and the narrator's voice or manner is not conducive to holding an audience's attention.
