Very entertaining, engaging inside Hollywood tale
12 December 2005 | by jnapsSee all my reviews

As Old Hollywood vanishes and the market-driven economy dictates more of what we see, this is an interesting film to see even if only to reflect on how different things were "back then;" but it's also quite watchable in its own right. For the student of film history, or the newcomer to the world of early Hollywood, this engrossing portrait provides plenty of memorable material, and archival footage that film buffs will eat up. When you know going in that the filmmaker is the grandson of the movie's subject, there is concern that this will be a fawning document of a superficially great man. But, Mr. Orr does a good job of balancing the profile of someone he knew with a sharp editorial eye. The narration is well-written. This is well worth seeing.
