Rona Barrett at her best
iluvu | shaler | 12/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember her as a kid and she was the most known gossip/entertainment reporter back in the 1970's-80s. Her magazines featured the celebrities of that era and her interviews were amazing.I recomend anyone who loved the 70's to buy this dvd,She was a much better interviewer than barbara Walters. I hope there are more Rona barrett dvds to come and I hope they release Dinah Shore and friends on dvd as well"
Rona Always Got The Scoop

"Rona Barrett is a true pioneer and legend in the realm of Hollywood reporting. I remember watching her on "Good Morning, America" and later "Today" and buying her popular magazines as well...because she always got the scoop and reported on facts and the truth (thus, the name of this DVD - and hope there's more to come too). This dvd highlights some great interviews with some great personalities. It's also nice to know that the sales of this dvd support her foundation which assists the elderly poor."

*TIME-CAPSULE* Of The Sit-Down Interview From The Queen.

"I don't remember these television specials but I do remember my mom reading "Rona Barrett's Hollywood" magazine back in the day. For those who are unfamiliar with Barrett, she was the celebrity interviewer back in the 70s and 80s before Barbara Walters took over that title, and had her own gossip magazine and column.

The RONA BARRETT'S HOLLYWOOD: NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH DVD is a nostalgic look at the top stars during the 70s, some who are still around today. I was really interested in the Donna Summer interview because they're so rare and that's why I bought this DVD. But the other interviews are intriguing as well.

Running at 01-hour and 31-minutes, the DVD is short and sweet. Barrett (in the present time) introduces each interview and concludes each with a tidbit of info on "where are they now."

Each interview runs between 5-9-minutes, give or take, and the quality is a little grainy but doesn't disrupt viewing pleasure. There's "interview/chapter selection" and "play-all" feature so you can go right to your favorite star or watch the entire show.

Also included is a bonus 9-minute featurette narrated by Rona Barrett on her career and includes still photos with some very famous celebrities and archival footage of Hollywood. And one-dollar from every sale of the DVD goes to help the "Rona Barrett Foundation For The Elderly Poor."

The highlight interviews--though all are good--are Donna Summer, Robin Williams, Cher, Carol Burnett, and Burt Reynolds. You also get to see a young John Travolta talking about his career after riding high on the success of "Saturday Night Fever" and "Grease."
