Storyline

This is a wonderful documentary, that shows the full scope of Earl Hamner Jr's talent. Most people know him as the real life "John Boy," but do not realize that he wrote for shows such as the Twilight Zone. I highly recommend this documentary, especially for fans of the Waltons. It will touch your heart, & bring tears to your eyes.

Even Better Than Expected
19 September 2015 | by riggs4-1See all my reviews

What a treasure this documentary is -backed by supporters via online crowdsourcing, "Earl Hamner Storyteller" was recently released for home viewing. As the title suggests, this feature-length documentary lays out the story of one of America's greatest storytellers, Mr. Hamner himself. It was refreshing to see many people who worked with him giving interviews and they all had kind things to say. The film covers everything from "The Waltons" to "The Twilight Zone" and his other work in television and film. The portions highlighting "The Waltons" even got me a bit teary-eyed. As mentioned in the header, I had no idea what to expect, but I figured this would be a good documentary. I was wrong - it is tremendous.
