Movie Reviews

Not worth the price

"This is a very disappointing DVD for $18. It is the 1956 one-hour documentary narrated by Alexander Scoursby.

Done in the same style as "Victory At Sea", it must have been good for its time. Still, much of the short hour was spent showing Americans partying on their way to the war and partying on their way back home. Very little was spent on the causes of the war and nothing was said of the Versailles Treaty.

If you are interested in WW-I, I suggest you wait for PBS to issue its 1996 6-hour series of the same name. When it does, I'll buy their DVD and donate this one to the local library."
