This documentary has been shown on TCM. It is entirely in black and white and made up of home movie footage shot by actor Ken Murray. Kenstarted making home movies when he came to Hollywood. He narrates the silent films and tells stories about "the old days". There is great footage of Hollywood Blvd., Chaplin Studios and Paramount.
The documentary also features many celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin and Bob Hope. Chaplin, ever the ham, tries to ride on one of those bicycles with the giant front tire.
Another great shot features two legends mugging for the camera: Jimmy Durante and Sid Grauman.
The documentary runs just under an hour and closes with a shot of Ken's star on Hollywood Blvd.
I would recommend this to any film who wants to look back at old historic Hollywood.
