Bathe in the glow of the Hollywood lights!
4 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

A Hollywood lovers dream. This show explores the history and magic of a good majority of the movies of the golden age of Hollywood. Hosted by Shirley Jones and featuring interviews with a variety of actors. The interviews delve into behind the scene stories that are a delight for any buff. There's only one problem inevitably they have to omit movies. Either due to time constraints or not being granted the rights to show clips. What is mentioned is greatly enjoyable!
