Movie Reviews

R.I.P. Vic Morrow
Christian S. Dovidio | 01/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow, still creepy!! I first saw "Death In Hollywood" when it came out in the early 90's with my Dad and all I can say is that the stories and images have stuck with me for a long time. A lot of stars from the old days might not be of interest to the "Power Rangers" generation but this thing is worth the price of admission just for the Vic Morrow footage alone. E's True Hollywood Story about "The Twilight Zone Movie" incident didn't show you the actual footage of the actors demise but this early 90's documentary does, from multiple angles at that. The George Reeves story doesn't run in his favor but this video is old. Splashing into star after star like a Mansion pool party you'll be sucked in wanting more. A mild Faces Of Death have you. I haven't seen "When The Applause Died" but buy it for Death In Hollywood."

"This Daily Double of B (or less) movies/documentaries are stills and movie clips collaged in 1990 by Golden West Films and narrated by some guy (Paul Durris) who, one speculates, is Evelyn Wood's (The Evelyn Wood Seven-Day Speed Reading and Learning Program) ADHD brother. Claiming to "exhume and examine," commentating at a Race Track announcer-like clip, Durris dishes deaths of Hollywood famous and infamous, rarely pausing long enough to smell the roses in the funeral parlor or offer new insights.

There *is* included what turned out to be an ironic public service announcement done by James Dean during a break in the filming of Giant (Two-Disc Special Edition) (Digipack) in which he admonishes teen fans to Drive Safely, and background info to make sense of the death of Thomas Harper Ince aboard Wm Randolph Hearst's (root of Citizen Kane, grandaddy to Patty a/k/a Tania, see Patty Hearst: Her Own Story ) yacht, as seen in The Cat's Meow.

From the Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle debacle, through the demise of Marilyn, Morrow, and John Belushi, this duo is often camp preachy a la Reefer Madness (B&W) on the dangers of drugs and demon alcohol, and is mildly entertaining and "informative" in a National Enquirer sort of way. /TundraVision, Amazon Reviewer
