Movie Reviews

Great history on gold and man's passion for it.
Creative Muse | 12/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love gold and this was a delightful video for anyone fascinated or even just curious about it. Shows world history as well as gold rush history. Would have been nice to see it cover some of the advanced applications for gold in high tech industries, but this DVD is pretty thorough, features several professionals and historians to give it a pleasing depth and perspective. I rented it and plan on buying it."
