Movie Reviews

A superbly produced and entertaining historical documentary
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 12/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Located in St. Louis, Missouri, the Gateway Arch is the largest stainless steel structure every to be erected. Enhanced with an informed and informative narration by Kevin Kline, "The Gateway Arch: A Reflection Of America" is a one hour, full color DVD that tells the story of this architectural wonder in terms of its design, its construction, its history, and its symbolism. Drawing upon more than 10,000 documents and images (including the private papers of its architect, Eero Saarinen and the earliest conceptual drawings held in the archives of Yale University), "The Gateway Arch" also features interviews with World Trade Center memorial architect Daniel Libeskind, New York-based architecture critic Jayne Merkel, and Eero Saarinen's daughter Susan. The DVD format allows for the inclusion of an extra 30 minutes of relevant and appropriate special features. The result is a superbly produced and entertaining historical documentary that is confidently and enthusiastically recommended for inclusion in both school and community library DVD collections."
