| Does a biography get any nicer than this one?!
This installment of "American Masters" is one of the more unusual shows I've ever seen about an actor. Not only do many actors and voice actors praise him for his amazing skills, but the show does a great job in describing Mel Blanc as one of the nicest and most decent human beings--something that cannot be said of many famous people. His son talks about what a terrific father and husband he was and others talk about the times he went out of his way to be decent to fans--going so far and never refusing to make phone calls to people in character when folks requested it! He is a breed that is rare--and the show really made you like the guy as well as respect his contributions. It's also full of fascinating tidbits-- such as his close friendship with Jack Benny and the difficulty he had at first getting Looney Tunes to even give him a chance to demonstrate his considerable voice acting skills! Overall, one of the finer biographies I've seen---and one that will leave fans actually LIKING the person not just their skills.
