A Jumble of Great Stories.
5 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Yes, there are lots of actors/directors reminiscing with great stories. And excerpts of several classic movies. Also quite a few acknowledgments about how casting was accomplished, or occasionally mis-cast. But I'd have to rate this fairly low because there's no thread of narrative. It's like expecting to appreciate both the stories and writing style of Asimov, Hemingway, or Angelou by reading Cliff Notes. This production reminds me more of a studio insiders 21st century home movie - shot with an HD smart phone & edited with home computer. I'm still waiting for a proper 14 hour documentary, by Ken Burns.

...that said, it's got some great footage (both modern and archival) of several of the behind-the-scenes in-house departments which continue to create the sets of Warner Brothers productions. A mythic studio.
