Movie Reviews

This DVD of the Great SF earthquake of 1906 was fantastic!
Night Stalker | San Francisco, CA. | 06/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I picked up my dvd at a shop at Fisherman's Warf in San Francisco and I must have re-watched this DVD a dozen times! because it is so well made and intersting to watch.
I think they did a wonderful job on this documentary and I would highly recommend it, especially if your a history buff like myself.

definitely worth adding to your dvd collection

Im also planning on picking up another documentary about the SF earthquake and fire of 1906 called: "Disaster by the Bay the great SF earthquake and fire of 1906" I heard that was alos a very good one."
Awesome DVD

"I'm writing a novel based during the Great Quake, and this DVD just gave me so much information and inspiration. I'm so glad I bought it. I'm sure to be watching it often as I progress with the book."
Fascinating story
