Movie Reviews

Excellent Overview of Hearst and his Ranch!
ThreeBirdy | San Diego CA | 12/31/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"We just visited Hearst Castle, took several tours, saw their featured "Building the Dream" DVD, purchased a DVD tour from their store. I learned more from this A&E presentation than any of these others! Excellent footage (including live movie clips of Hearst during the 20s), shots of different rooms, history of the art. This makes an excellent souvenir if you have visited, or a feasible trip if you live too far away to go in person. The Castle looks better in this film than in person since the film is about 15 years old. Wish I had seen it before our visit to have better appreciation of what the tour presented. Highly recommend!"
Lightweight documentary
R. Gale | Los Angeles, CA United States | 04/16/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"First, know that this is a 45 minute documentary; at $20 or more, it's a rip-off. This is a travelogue oriented presentation, and although it's well photographed, the information is presented in a sort of stream-of-consciousness manner -- it jumps around all over the place, and then goes back to things that you thought had already been covered...including repetition of several shots. There are two reasons to recommend it. Reason 1: if you want a souvenir of your visit to Hearst Castle, this is certainly better than any home video you can take yourself. Reason 2: if you've never been there, and don't know much about it, it does serve as a decent, although scattered, introduction. Of course, nothing can compare with actually going there, and that's what I recommend most of all!"
Hearst Castle by A&E

(5 out of 5 stars)

"We've been to Hearst castle on several occasions but now we live in Idaho, not California. My videos were good but you really can't beat the professional videos such as this one to really get a good combined story of the overall history of the 'castle' as well as the images of rooms and items you just can't get unless you go on multiple expensive tours at the facility. If you've been or are thinking about going get this video from Amazon sellers, don't wait to buy it from the gift shops, way more expensive there!"
