Movie Reviews

Not that great...
Chris Retford | Evanston, IL | 03/04/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This 6 disc set (10 episodes) starts out well -- the first two hours are good, with a narrator, footage, and interviews. You know, the stuff you expect to see in a documentary. After that, the producers apparently ran out of money and/or effort, because the rest of the discs are lame. Most of them are just old news reels slapped together. Not that the newsreels themselves aren't interesting or appropriate, but there is nothing else there. No commentary, no narration, no interviews. By the time google puts the national archives footage on-line you can see the same thing for free."
