Very hard to find, but well worth it
I discovered this title, along with companion title "Death In Hollywood," in a video store in Minot, ND. They're both great documentaries, with plenty of classic scenes, movie trailer, clips of performances and pulls no punches in describing and showing the destruction that substance abuse wreaked upon some of the industry's top stars and their families.
Beginning with Fatty Arbuckle and ending with Janis Joplin, the tragic consequences of alcohol and drug abuse are shown, with no attempt to romanticize their affects rather showing the waste and pain that they brought to the performers and their fans.
Perhaps the two titles will one day be updated and put on DVD. Until then, check Ebay often and bid aggressively.
