This was a very good biography

"It was comprehensive, factually correct, and very interesting. I'm not sure I learned anything new, but I have been a fan/collector for 50 years so it is difficult to find anything new for me. That being said, this biography kept me interested from start to finish. Impressive."
Good documentary..BUT misleading A&E time!

"Like all the recent A&E biography DVDs A&E are misrepresenting the actual TIME ...it is NOT 100 minutes...the program actually ends at 85 minutes...and the final credits run into the 86 minute mark! The A&E Biographies marked 50 minutes are really closer to 42!
This may seem to some a picky complaint, but ask yourself this....if you send A&E 85% of the price would they send you their products? Why should they be padding their run times on their products to make them seem like better investments...the list on these DVDs is $24...pretty steep in comparison with the much superior WB DVDs on James Dean like "Forever Young" which lists for $19 and actually DOES run the advertised..90minutes...heck they should advertise 100 minutes they are closer than this A&E..and its a better DVD anyway...AND the American Masters James Dean : Sense Memories...has the nerve to say its 53minutes when it is! Why don't they take their lead from A&E and round up to whatever they want? ...okay..enough of my ranting....don't believe the run times on A&E products
this DVD is still worth owning...but buy it used."
