Biography (1961–1964)

Wonderful memories of Mike Wallace's Biography series
8 April 2012
I have such vivid memories of Mike Wallace's 'Biography' series. I wholewheartedly agree with Ms. Sanchez' sentiments, which were posted earlier.

The series ran from 1961 - 1964, but I am so grateful that one of our local NYC TV stations aired daily repeats (in the early mornings) of this wonderful, informative series.

It is, largely due to this series, that I, myself, got so involved in History.

I mourn Mr. Wallace's passing (1918-2012), but will always be grateful for his 'Biography' TV series.

Low budget schlock, but...
19 February 2007
I agree -- it was low budget schlock at its worst -- but I enjoyed it! I enjoyed seeing a Young Don Grady (of TV's My Three Sons fame) as one of the kids in the beginning of the film...Lurene Tuttle was quite 'campy' in her portrayal of 'Ma.' I only knew her from her days as the older nurse on the late 1960's TV series 'Julia' (starring Diahann Carroll).

I'll tell you how much I enjoyed this picture, I had gone to see a movie based on a Tony Award winning play earlier in the day, something that I had been looking forward to seeing, but I was thoroughly disenchanted and disgusted with it.

At least, with 'Ma', I did not expect HIGH expectations of it, but I enjoyed it!
