Hollywood, the golden years: a look at the golden age of silent films via footage from studio films, museums and private collections.
Hollywood, the Selznick years: Portrait of film producer, David O. Selznick, and of the thirties and forties which allowed him to produce romantic epics. Clips from his films, including David Copperfield, The prisoner of Zenda, A tale of two cities, Rebecca, and Gone with the wind are intercut with comments from directors and stars who worked for him.
Legend of Marilyn Monroe: An in-depth look at Marilyn Monroe's life, particularly her childhood and teen years.
Hollywood, the great stars: we watch the star system develop from the days of the silents to the modern era of super-sell. Seen in the roles that typed them are movie personalities like the great lovers, Valentino and Boyer; tough guys, Bogart and Cagney; the swashbucklers, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. and Errol Flynn; and glamor girls from Harlow to Monroe. The pressures of the 'life in a goldfish bowl' which accompanies stardom are underlined by an account of Marilyn's tragic love affair with the public. Another sequence presents the indestructibles, top stars for many years--Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, Joan Crawford, John Wayne and Bette Davis. In excerpts from current and yet-to-be released films we see the new breed--stars like Shirley MacLaine, Jack Lemmon, Geraldine Page and Tony Perkins.
Hollywood, the gift of laughter: a retrospective look at 60 years of great moments in film comedy from the 1920s to the present. Includes: Carol Burnett, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Richard Pryor and more.
