P.T. Barnum, well worth the price of the admission ticket !
A fascinating and most of all historic glimpse into P. T. Barnum's life.
Played with heart plus a wonderful exhilarating energy, in later years by Beau Bridges.
Phineas Taylor Barnum may have very well been responsible for the creation
of the 'Rain Check' and 'Wealth Seminars' still widely used in today's society.
The made for television A & E ( Arts & Entertainment Network ) 2 part film deals equally
with his showmanship career and family life. Barnum's forever brooding, never satisfied wife
causes the viewer to wonder why he pursued her approval and the marriage did not dissolve.
The truthfulness or embellishment of her portrayed character in the film plays very well as the
reason Barnum was highly motivated and thrived on being successful.
The picture quality and stereo sound of the 1999 film and 2004 released Platinum DVD is very good to excellent.
Do not fear when Part 1 ends, Part 2 is on the DVD disc as well.
Total of approximately 3 hours, each part being 90 minutes.
The DVD information insert states incorrectly 90 minutes in length, which is each parts running time."
BOTH PARTS ON THE SAME DVD!!!

"I am cobfirming there's a typo on the DVD cover. It's not 94 minutes, there's 3 hours here. Both parts are on the DVD, as Amazon has described. They're not separated out on the DVD menu, but rest assured that Part 2 follows right after the credits for Part 1. The movie itself is superb; well acted with incredible costuming and sets!"
