Dynamic period comes across in this documentary.
3 October 2010 | by kenthagenSee all my reviews

Very enjoyable show that generates a feel of the 20s that is rare in most works I've seen done of this period. I was impressed with the archival footage and the on camera experts who kept their comments short and to the point.I enjoyed the specific focus on the style and media coverage of women in that period that still serves as a template for the sensational approach that persist to this day. The period included so many firsts it makes for a rich and diverse subject that includes gangsters, scandals and Hollywood milestones. This documentary shows them all. It made me realize that celebrity worship has been with us since the this period and I found the similarities fascinating.I look foreword to future work done by this filmmaker.
