"For those interested in the life of Howard Hughes, this is a better deal.
It is an unvarnished, straight documentary which tells Hughes' story without bells and whistles.
AND, as a real "easter egg," you get the entire released version of "The Outlaw" at no extra charge. See for yourself what all the fuss was about! (Hint: not really too much, at least by today's standards.)
The historian used here for credibility and gravitas is a little overly dramatic or sarcastic, but the narrator is great. The footage, though not as plentiful as in the other Hughes DVD for sale today, is very well-inserted and presented without distracting frills.
