Retrospective of hollywood moves from 1929 to 1988.
5 October 2018 | by CCsitoSee all my reviews

This series was produced by Dante Pugliese and was sometimes included a brief cameo by Tab Hunter and offers brief movie clips for ever year from 1929 to 1988. Each year had its own episode that lasted an hour, so the entire program lasted nearly 60 hours. All of the major movies (especially the Oscar winners) for every year in that span is included as well as many other popular movies. The series include interviews with some of the actors/actresses in the films. Each episode opens with a shifting and changing image of a Hollywood icon beginning with Cark Gable and ending with Shirley MacLaine. Since each year produced a large number of films, there will be omissions. The series provides a good summary of the Hollywood movies over 60 years. Not sure if the program is available on DVD.
