Movie Reviews

Could have been a whole lot better
P. Atkins | Lancaster, PA USA | 03/10/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Credits are important. They help define the creative process and guide the viewer's point of view. We like to know what we are watching, especially nostalgic compilations like this. Other than a few brief liner notes, the DVD does not impart enough information and leaves the viewer disappointed. The Duke is great, this DVD is not."
