Great if you teach US History
M. Altieri | Cheshire, CT USA | 11/24/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Best overall look at the 1920's for students and the people interested in the 20's. Music is right with the times and the film is vintage. Fred Allen is the the host and his old radio voice is right out of the Jazz Age!!"
NBC's Project Twenty series
Richard Morris | San Francisco, CA USA | 12/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a masterpiece! I remember watching this program when I was a pre-teen in the mid-fifties. The film footage, Fred Allen's narration, and Robert Russell Bennett's musical accompaniment are nothing short of captivating. A must see for students of that era."
Oustanding for teaching Gatsby
Joseph S. Chambers | Pennsylvania | 01/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As an English teacher trying to illustrate the historical context of Gatsby, this documentary is excellent. Fred Allen's tongue-in-cheek narration may be difficult for some students, but the issues relevant to the book are obvious and treated appropriately. It is also a fast and quick screening in classes--the first few chapters are all that are needed, up to when the documentary shifts to the expatriates abroad in Paris."
