Movie Reviews

A Fascinating Look At World War 1
G. Youngblood | 02/24/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Complete Story of World War Iis a comprehensive look at The War To End All Wars. Produced by CBS television in the early 1960s and narrated by actor Robert Ryan, this unflinching 26 episode series rates right up with Victory At Sea as an early television war documentary. From the political intrigues that led nations to war, to life in the trenches, to the first air battles, all the way to the sad end, television just doesn't get much better than this. World War 1 was the first war able to be truly documented on motion camera. I'm glad this documentary was produced while the then almost fifty year old film was still viable. Who knows if it still even exists today. Highly recommended for history and war buffs."
One of the best!

World War I

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was easily in the same high category as "world At War" and Ken Berns' "Civil War" long before those series were ever conceived. From its tragic theme music to Robert Ryan's haunting narration, "World War I" shows the tragedy and futility of the conflict that totally wrecked any dreams the world had in the early twentieth century. This set also has an episode missing from a VHS set I had: "Tipperary and All That Jazz", a collection of the songs of the Great War. This series is worth having just for the remastered film taken at that time alone. I don't think these scenes exist anywhere else except in government archives. Well worth any price."
