| Does not compare favorably to "That's Entertainment" (Parts I thru III)
Because this was shown during a PBS fund drive, and all the other "specials" that were being shown were more than five years old, I thought this show was another that had been dragged out of the archives.

What a surprise, it's new! But how fresh can a show be when it uses the same, limited material that has been used so many times before, and it should be added, has been presented so much better than this effort. I had never heard of any of the "experts" who are seen on camera, and again because this material has previously been under so many microscopes, all of more acutely focused than that employed here, sorry effort.

That such continuity as there was, was frequently interrupted by pleas for funds finally proved so distracting to me, I simply turned the show off and put on a DVD of "Top Hat"

PBS in thinking this rehash would send viewers into a frenzy of checkwriting. exhibted not only unbridled arrogance, but total disrespect for its audience...two traits PBS displays more of during fund drives than either challenging or entertaining programs.
