| "Yessir, we won't attempt to hide it from you -- this is a propaganda picture."
Hour-long promotional film with Lionel Barrymore introducing MGM head Dore Schary, who hawks the upcoming releases from MGM for the year 1951. We get clips from Show Boat, The Red Badge of Courage, Quo Vadis, Night Into Morning, Father's Little Dividend, It's a Big Country, An American in Paris, and many others. The framing sequences with Barrymore and Schare are in beautiful Technicolor. The film clips are in both color and black & white. It's a mildly interesting little curiosity but there's not much here that will appeal to anyone who isn't a die-hard fan of classic Hollywood. I found it watchable enough because I was bored but it's not something I would go out of my way to see again.
