| Just what you'd expect from Turner.
This documentary focuses on the great films from 1939--a year that is considered by many to represent the pinnacle of American film making. The production is narrated by Kenneth Branagh and is filled with interviews and tons of film clips. As for the clips, since most of the great films of this year were from MGM, Turner Entertainment (who made the documentary) had easy access to the footage. Among the great films discussed were: "Ninotchka", "Goodbye Mr. Chips", "Gone With the Wind", "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington", "The Wizard of Oz", "The Women", "The Roaring Twenties", "Dodge City", "Old Maid", "Dark Victory", "Confessions of a Nazi Spy", "Beau Geste", "Midnight", "Union Pacific", "Gunga Din", "Stagecoach", "Only Angels Have Wings", "Of Mice and Men". Is the film any good? Yup--with exactly the quality and entertainment we've come to expect from Turner.
