The Michael Jackson magic and craze of the 1970's and 80's
Michael Jackson: The Legend Continues, a 1988 Showtime on Motown cable special that also included a documentary on Marvin Gaye, is one of the few documentaries on the subject of Michael Jackson that is totally focused on his extraordinary music career. James Earl Jones provides the narration, that is used to great effect, especially to make points on his career milestones. I consider this a fun documentary to watch about Jackson, before he became known as wacko,jacko to the press.

The viewer will see a montage of footage of Michael performing as a member of the Jackson 5ive, performing their hit songs of the day, when he went solo with the Off The Wall album, and the monster that his album Thriller became around the world. The documentaries also shows how success put Michael Jackson in the company of some of Hollywood's most celebrated movie stars of the 30's, 40's, and 50's. Michael Jackson: The Legend Continues features people like Quincy Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., Elizabeth Taylor, Gene Kelly, and Sophie Loren.

Michael Jackson: The Legend Continues is a great documentary that will remind the viewer of what a brilliant, great entertainer Michael Jackson was considered by many people the world over in 1988, long before the scandals started to rock the foundation of Michael Jackson's carefully, constructed, innocent image. I give this film **** stars excellent. The music will make one go searching for his music both when he was with the Jackson 5ive and when he went solo. I saw this on the Showtime cable network and on video. I can't say it is easy to find this title on video today. Check it out if possible.
