I thought this was very funny, and I liked all who was in it, but would like to know what happened to Donna McDaniel ??
Some Nudity Required - The Naked Truth Behind Hollywood's B-Movies (Documentary) [VHS]
Samuel Z. Arkoff
New Video, 1999
a meaningful look into a shallow industry
Most telling about this movie is when a director is explaining the nature of women in the Bmovie industry and his Freudian slip is "the women in these breasts" instead of saying, "the women in these films." This movie is a behind the scene look into the Bmovie industry. The narrator is Odette Springer a composer of Bmovie scores. The story focuses on her. She tries to explain how and why ...
Hollywood Canteen [VHS]
MGM (Warner), 1998
Having been fortunate to have been SERVED at "THE" canteen I have found this to be a true story of the canteen. True Robert Hutton's romance with Joan Leslie was not a fact, however, it gave us guys a sense of enjoying our many fantasies. This film was very entertaining, in my eyes, and I'm certain many of us who were fortunate the have visited the Hollywood canteen feel much the same. I was in ...
Dance, Fools, Dance (Forbidden Hollywood) [VHS]
MGM (Warner), 1998
Recommended for fans of Gable, Crawford, and the early talkies
I am reviewing the product itself here, not the wisdom of paying this particular price for that product. This is a Warner Archive product. It is a DVD-R with no scene selections or chapter stops. You may only go forward or backwards in ten minute increments. Furthermore no special restoration has been done for this release. This film is actually about 3.5/5. Not great, but good enough to keep ...
Hollywood Knights [VHS]
Sony Pictures, 2000
Bought these movies for Christmas gifts. Funny old movie reminds you how teenagers use to have fun.
Hollywood: A Celebration of the American Silent Film, Complete Set 1-13 [VHS]
HBO Video, 1997
I have searched forever for this great series on DVD...and I found it. It's available for 60 dollars from 'Yammering Magpie Cinema". Not sure why Amazon doesn't have it. Google Yammering magpie Cinema to find the web site.

Midsummer Night's Dream [VHS]
Walt Disney Video, 2000
A superb production
I've seen a dozen productions of A Midsummer Nights Dream over the past 40 years and this is by far the most satisfying of them all. A part of the reason for this may well be the way the mind works with advancing years, filtering out the redundant & superficial fodder that comprises 90% of contemporary film and theatrical fare. Acting, direction & sets all superb.
Hollywood Sins - The Steamiest Stories Take Place Behind The Camera [VHS]
Playboy Home Video, 1999
Producer deserves an Oscar
Hollywood Sins has an interesting plot, fantastic character development, great acting, fantastic direction, and super steamy realistic sexual content full of passion and heat. This movie typifies what Playboy was put on this earth to do, and why adult entertainment should be recognized as thoughtful art alongside the "mainstream" movies of our time. The producers of this film don't get enough ...
Joe E. Brown puts his big mouth to good use as a goof-off who finds himself on the Coney Island police force because of his ex-cop father's reputation.

Without Lying Down - Frances Marion and the Power of Women in Hollywood [VHS]
Milestone Video, 2002
Mary Pickford fans Must Have!
This documentary is interesting, but I believe I am somewhat biased as I saw it only because I knew A Little Princess was on it. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Mary's co-star was Francis Marion's husband. Also, the detailed description of the struggle to release Poor Little Rich Girl to the public is familiar to any who have read Mary Pickford's autobiography. There are many ...
Queen - Champions of the World [VHS]
Hollywood Video, 1995
Love the interviews
I have all the cds so I know the music. Saw the band perform live more than once, so I know the stage show. This gives us something more. This video has great interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from all four band members and many other people who were affected by their music in any way. And that's why any true fan would be well advised to own this video. Excellent!
My Man Godfrey (Hollywood Classics Collector's Edition)
Madacy Music Group
I really liked this movie
When Cornelia Bullock (played by Gail Patrick) and her sister Irene (Carole Lombard) arrive at the city dump, looking for a "forgotten man" for their society scavenger hunt, they expect to find a squashed cabbage leaf of a man, but instead they find Godfrey Smith (William Powell). Ever in competition with her sister, Irene latches onto Godfrey, and hires him to be their family butler. The ...
Queen: Live at Wembley '86 [VHS]
Hollywood Video, 1992
Good Video Music
The product has good resolution for being a video recorded in those years, is the best concert video I bought this group
Hollywood Party [VHS]
MGM (Warner), 1993
Hollywood Party... NOBODY sleeps tonight!!!
Maybe the movie, overall, is not 5 stars, but I really enjoyed the musical number "Hollywood Party". It made me feel happy inside. THis movie is very enjoyable for a late night. I watched it on a late night during a rainstorm. Maybe it is not a truly great movie, but still, it is fun. I just loved the music... holly wood party... get up, get out, get in it... hollywood party, nobody sleeps ...
I Love Lucy 2: Best of [VHS]
Wrapping candy, fake nose on fire, having a baby and more!
This second volume in the "Best of 'I Love Lucy'" collection begins with two of the show's classic comedy moments. "Job Switching" (Episode #36, September 15, 1952), is the classic episode of "I Love Lucy" that I always show to my television classes so they know what a classic sit com looks like. Ricky is tired of the way Lucy spends money without regard for where it comes from, so the boys and ...
Playboy Jazz Festival Volume 1
Red Norvo-Tai Farlow Trio
Pieces of a Dream
RCA/Columbia Pictures, 1982
1982 Playboy Jazz Festival, Volume 1, VHS tape
As someone who likes jazz and has for many years, I found this tape and the companion Volume 2 to be welcome additions to my collection. If you don't like Playboy, don't let that deter you from giving this festival a look. Many of the segments can be found on Youtube, which provides a way of previewing the tape contents. The festival was in 1982, but the tapes were released in 1984 so there ...
Playboy Jazz Festival Volume 2
1982 Playboy Jazz Festival, Volume 2, VHS tape
This is the companion to Volume 1 of the 2-day festival held in 1982. My comments can be found in the reviews of that tape.
Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Chapter 22 - Hollywood Follies [VHS]
Sean Patrick Flanery
Probably reflects Lucas's dislike to big studios
Yep, although he doesn't mention it, it shows clearly his bad memories of his youthful filmmaking; like the other chapters I've reviewed, this one also is very inmersive and shows how dangerous was to shoot a film at that time (well it's still so, but not THAT dangerous), yes I do agree with other reviewers about that it doesn't has lot of action, but it still has many comic situations that ...
